"O King of vultures, the destinations which is attained by the persons who perform yajnas for a long time and the destinations which is attained by a person who worship agni for a long time, a destination attained by a person who donates his land nicely, that destination you attain by my concern. You go to the planet which is unparallelled". An ordinary human cannot make a soul to go to Vaikunta. In this way He revealed that He is a Maha-purusha.


Jataayu moksha - When Ravana carried Sita matha, Jatayu fought with Ravana. Ravana cut the wings of Jatayu. Jatayu was about to die. That time Rama and Lakshmana came there looking for Sita. Rama put Jatayu in His lap. Then Jatayu said that a 10 headed demon took Sita towards south and he cut his wings. After conveying this he died. Rama felt so much for Jatayu because for His sake he fought with Ravana. So Rama decided to perform ritualistic ceremony to Jatayu. Rama speaks in Valmiki Ramayan 3.68.29 & 30

Temple / Location

Rama in this temple is a dark ocean radiating peace. At his feet is a noble image of his Consort. But was not Rama alone here? Hadn't Sita been abducted at that time?

N. Kannan of the Ahobila Math explains that it is Bhumipiraatti (Mother Earth), and promptly speaks of another moving legend. Rama had got ready to perform the final obsequies on the banks of a pond (now known as Jatayu Pushkarini) when he realised that the Vedic ceremony needed the presence of his wife. He felt sad that he was helpless in the matter. Immediately there arose a golden lotus in the tank with Bhuma Devi (Sita is considered to be a manifestation of Mother Earth) who helped fulfil Rama's desire to complete the rituals. Hence we find Bhuma Devi in the sanctum. She is seated, with a lotus in hand. Reliefs on the wall behind show Brahma, Lakshmana, Hanuman and Jatayu. The Utsava deity has four hands holding the hardy Kodanda bow, the conch and the discus, with the lower right hand in abhaya mudra.
