Kozhikode Sreekanteswara Kshethram Legends:

According to the archaeological findings of Mohanjadaro and Harappa, there is evidence that about 15,000 years ago, a population worshiped Lord Shiva. A piece of pottery from the discoveries had a recorded image of a yogi in a meditative posture surrounded by living creatures such as human beings on both sides, birds in flight, animals and fish, all eagerly learning to gain wisdom spiritual. Methodologically, Lord Shiva in the form of Dakshinamoorthi is considered the first guru of Bhaaratham. Young ascetic, sitting under a pipal and looking south, he preached to his disciples in the language of “silence”.

Later, Sree Shankaracharya and Sreenarayana Guru Devan developed the ancient belief “Shiva Guru Sankalpa” for “Dakshinamoorthi sankalpa”. In a verse from Sree Shankaracharya, you can see all the poems ending with ‘Nama idam Dakshinamoorthaye’ (we praise Lord Dakshinamoorthy). The same concept is beautifully explained in another book written by Sreenarayana Guru.

Another myth of Lord Shiva refers to “Natarajan” (the king of dances). According to Hindu belief, Lord Shiva is the god of dance and the universe is his theater. It is said in ancient books that the art of dance was discovered by Lord Shiva. He taught it to his favorite disciple, Thandu (ascetic), and his wife, Parvathi Devi. Thandu’s dance style became popular under the name of ‘Thandavam’ and that of Parvathy Devi’s as Lasyanrithum ‘. The combination of Shiva’s Thandavam and Parvathy’s Lasyanrutham, known as ‘Ardhanareeswaran’, is very popular among the Indians. The statue of ‘Nataraja’ in the temple of Chithambaram is a perfect replica of Nataraja Sankalpa’. Covered with beautiful ornaments, this statue has four hands. You can see a snake holding its head up, a skeleton’s head, the goddess Ganga and a half-moon adorned with a garland of ‘Konna’ leaves on her head. In one of his right hands, he holds a dhamaru (rhythmic instrument) and shows “abhayamudra” with the other. One of the left hands has a fire on and the other hand is pointing down. His right leg is placed on an ugly creature. He is standing on a lotus from which the flames of fire reach his hands holding fire and dhamaru. This “prapanchanadanam” (cosmic dance) represents the creations and their movements in the universe. Each mudra and the objects in his hands represent creation, functioning and destruction. The ugly creature under his foot represents the ego. It is said that “moksham” (freedom of the soul) is only possible by removing the ego from your mind.

Archaeologists have also discovered that Lord Shiva was worshiped in the form of “Shivalingam”. In this concept, the temple itself is a human body and the “Sreekovil” (the innermost part of the temple, where the idol is placed) is the heart. The Shivalingam installed in the sreekovil is a symbol of the divine nature of the soul.
