Rama, Sita and how Lord Lakshmi Narayana Manifested Himself Here in this Sacred SpaceHow did the Blissful Form of Lakshmi Narayana become available to us in this sacred spot in this Kali Yuga (the current age)? To answer this question, we have to go all the way back to the Treta Yuga and to Lord Shri Ram and Mother Sita!
The Nava Natha SiddhasRamayana is the blessed life story of Lord Shri Ram. Just like the blessed Lord Shri Ram is endless, His story is endless too. Thus, there are many Ramayanas by many great rishis and siddhas that extol this great life story and adore the Lord in many ways.
Still, in the infinite story of the infinite Lord, there are Rama and Ramayana secrets that are known only to the Lord and to the Nava Natha Siddhas. Who are the Nava Natha Siddhas?
The Nava Natha Siddhas are 9 very great Siddhas who are direct projections of the Lord Himself. By divine command, these Siddhas are the eternal witnesses of all Puranic events and the ultimate authorities on all Purana (divine epic) happenings.
The Ramayana of the Nava Natha SiddhasThe Ramayana of the Nava Natha Siddhas is what Sathguru Venkataraman referred to as Irudigal Ramayanam - the Ramayana known only to the Nava Natha Siddhas and those blessed by them.
The inner efflugence of the Nava Natha Siddhas is the residence of (Maharishi Maheswara, Kousthubha Purusha) Sri La Sri Idiyaappa Eesa Siddha, the great Siddha who took the form of an old man to instruct the young lad Venkataraman. Thus the close connection between the Sathguru and the Nava Natha Siddhas.
In his lectures and writings, Sathguru Venkataraman often referred to the secrets of the Nava Natha Siddhas in giving us his unique insights into divine Puranic events.
It is one such Ramayana secret of the Nava Natha Siddhas, handed down to us by Sathguru Venkataraman, that reveals the bliss filled arrival of Lakshmi Narayana's Divine Form in this sacred space of Pon Maan Meindha Nallur. Read, enjoy and be immersed in divine bliss.
"Maya" Delusion, the Great IRRITANT!The Nava Natha Siddhas tell us about the many sacred spaces that Lord Shri Ram visited, both before His Lanka battle and after. (Note Lord Rama's vow to install 10 million Shiva Lingas that we mentioned in an earlier article.)
Once, when He and Mother Sita and Lord Lakshman were on a pada yatra (pilgrimage by foot) to several sacred spaces, Mother Seetha Devi asked Him a question.
"Tell me, Lord, how is it possible that even when I was with You, I succumbed to the "maya" delusion of the golden deer?"
Defeated by Maaya!What the Lord had said made Mother Seetha even more curious!
"Lord, Now I really must know how the maya of the golden deer got the better of me."said the Lord and gestured towards the open space in front of Them.
Lo and behold, there was the golden deer again, prancing about! Looking at this beautiful creature, Mother Sita Devi could not resist Herself... again!
"Lord! Look at this golden deer! It is so adorable! I really really want it! Won't you get it for me? Please!"History repeated itself, sadly, at the command of Lord Shri Ram!
The Decisive Lord LakshmanThis was the sad part of Ramayana on rewind! The maya of the golden deer and evil Ravana's treachery at the Feet of the Lord and the Mother.
The blessed Lakshmana wanted no part of it! He took His bow and fired an arrow like He had done so many times in the service of Lord Shri Ram.
The seething arrow blazed forth and scorched a long line on the ground. (This divine act of Lord Lakshmana is marked by the village called "Kodu Kizhi" that is next door to this sacred space. Kodu = line, kizhi = draw.)
Lord Shri Ram smiled, kept His Hand of Blessing on Mother Sita's head and brought Her back to Her Divine Self.
Mother Seetha marvelled at this practical experience of Maya that the Lord had so kindly reenacted for Her and thanked Him profusely for His sacred, divine instruction.
The usually stern Lord Lakshman couldn't help smiling too; He was only too happy that this "maya experience" was over in a few minutes unlike the previous time when it took much longer!

"Lord, Teach us how to go beyond Maya" -- Solution to the "Maya" Delusion ProblemMother Sita, with a touch of remorse, spoke again.
"Lord, Your words took living form here to teach me by practical experience! We were talking about maya just now, yet when it cropped up in front of me, I succumbed to it... again! Like you said, it is indeed true that crossing over Maya on this earth is HARD. So please teach me and others HOW to cross this ocean of maya on this earth."
The Blissful Manifestation of the LordAt that precise moment when Lord Shri Ram uttered these words, that Absolute Truth known as Narayana appeared in front of Sita, Rama and Lakshmana in the most blissful, divine form of Lakshmi Narayana!
The Three Divinities prostrated Themselves at the Feet of Lord Lakshmi Narayana and worshipped Him in numerous ways. Finally, they made this selfless request to Him:
"Hey Lord, You have so graciously blessed us with Your Divine Darshan! If we may ask, would You please make Your residence here and bless the people of the other 3 yugas also?"Lord Lakshmi Narayana agreed and made that spot His Residence and invested it with unimaginable Lakshmi Narayana shaktis!
Because He (accepted the request of Sita, Rama, Lakshmana) and took residence there, He is lovingly referred to as Kudi Konda Perumal - "the Lord who took residence" (Kudi = residence, Konda = took, Perumal = Lord).
And it is this sacred space that is known as Pon Maan Meindha Nallur. The moment when the Lord appeared as Lakshmi Narayana was the auspicious Vishnupathi time in that era. And in honor and fond remembrance of this blissful manifestation and of the lovely instruction given by Lord Rama, this is the sacred space lovingly chosen by the Siddhas for the Vishnupathi Celebration of May 15, 2010 - a sacred spot where Lord Lakshmi Narayana was worshipped by the three divinities Sita, Rama and Lakshmana Themselves.
Pon = gold.
The Need of the HourAs you can see in the darshan photos in this page, this temple is in a dilapidated condition. All that is left is the main sanctum. Devotees should get together in a spirit of humility and selfless service and help renovate this temple of Lord Sri Lakshmi Narayana in this sacred space of Pon Maan Meindha Nallur.
The nearby Shiva temple is the sacred space where Lord Shri Ram worshipped the Kasi Viswantha Shiva Linga as the Nava Natha Siddhas watched spellbound. Lord Ranganatha, the family deity of Lord Shri Ram, approved wholeheartedly and gave His darshan to Lord Rama and the Nava Natha Siddhas. This temple is in even more dilapidated condition. Devotees should renovate this temple as well.
What good deeds did your pitrus (exalted ancestral beings) do that you are able to read and learn this sacred Siddha secret concerning the crossing of the uncrossable ocean of Maya from the lips of the divine Sita and Rama Themselves and of the blissful manifestation of Lord Lakshmi Narayana!
