About five years back when I acquired an acre of land in the midst of pleasant and tranquil surroundings near Kancheepuram, so excited I was to spot, very near there, a six feet tall, grand and imposing idol of Lord AbhayaVeeranjaneya, believed to have been placed there about six hundred years ago. We were pleasantly surprised and extremely happy for a moment that it was the Lord Himself that willed and ordered that I shall go over there and acquire that piece of land situated very near the idol. It pained me a lot to learn a little thereafter that the routine daily rituals in the form of Pooja and Neivedyam and decorate the idol with the betel leaves and fruits that were dear to him, were totally absent since no devotee dedicated to make these offerings was living anywhere nearby. The idol, located on the banks of Mamandur lake stands with the right hand erect, as though ordering the gushing seasonal waters not to surge beyond that point thus saving the lives and properties of the people living in the nearby village of Dusi. It was thus that the idol acquired the name EarikaathaAnjaneyaSwamy. From then onwards we have been tirelessly making all efforts to conduct special poojas monthly once and offer the homams, floral decorations, oil, vibhoothi, chandanam,panneer, Abhishekams and butterpresentation to the Lord.
The significance and importance of this idol is:-
(1) here all sevas to the Lord can be performed by the devotee himself with his own hands,
(2) the idol gets more and more resplendent, shining and gorgeous in view of the uninterrupted polishing it undergoes due to regular and continuous full treatment that the same is subjected to by the devotees.
