Vedaranyeswarar Temple, Vedaranyam – Prayers

Vedaranyeswarar Temple, Vedaranyam – Prayers
It is the staunch faith of the people that hardships any nature caused due to sins committed, adverse serpent aspects, evil spells would vanish if the devotee surrenders to Lord in the temple. A bath in the Manikarnigai spring blesses with the benefit of bathing in holy rivers as Ganga, Yamuna, Narmada, Sindh and Cauvery. Even sins of high severity as Brahmmahathi caused by murder will disappear. The worship also brings them the benefit of doing charity, performing yoga and penance for a long period.
The sea at the eastern side of the temple is known as Aadhi Sethu. Bathing in this sea once is considered equal to 100 baths in the sea in Rameswaram.
Thousands bathe in the Kodiakarai Aadhi Sethu and Vedaranyam sea on Thai New Moon day in January-February, Aadi New Moon day in July-August, Mahalaya New Moon day in September-October and finally at Mani Karnika and worship Lord and Mother in their wedding form seeking child boon, education and wisdom, prosperity and healthy life. 
They are blessed with happy mental peace, employment opportunities promotions in jobs and progress in professions. Devotees place cradles in temple tree for child boon. Those aspiring for marriage offer Wedding Garlands to Lord and Mother. They perform necessary remedial pujas for various adversities they face. Devotees offers vastras and abishekam with sandal paste, cosmetic and turmeric powders, oil, milk, curd, rose water, green coconut, sacred ash, panchamirtha to the Lord and Mother. Many organize feeding-Annadhana. They also offer nivedhana to Lord and Mother and distribute to visitors. Many contribute for the renovation of the temple.
