Procedure to Visit Thirunallar Sanaischara Temple by Shri Narendra Babu Sharmaji
Brahmanda Guruji Shri Narendra Babu Sharmaji speaks on Thirunallar Sanaischara Temple and Lord Sanaischara (one who moves slowly).
  • First thing is we should never be afraid of Lord Sanaischara. People who commit Fraud or Crimes should be afraid of him, he will sure punish such kind of people only.

  • We should visit Thirunallar Sanaischara Temple only once in a year.

  • Guruji played Shiva Tandava Stotram written by Ravana before speaking on Thirunallar Mahashetram because Lord Sanaischara like Shiva's Natya (dance).

    Procedure to Visit Thirunallar Sanaischara Temple by Shri Narendra Babu Sharmaji
  • The legendary King Nala is said to have been relieved of his afflictions, which were due to the malefic influence of Saturn (Shani), after worship in this temple. Of the numerous tanks theertams, the Nala theertam is the most important one. By taking holy dip here, it is believed that one is washed off all kinds of misfortune and afflictions.
    When Nala had bath in the theertha ( called Nala theertha now) and entered the temple Saturn could not follow him and stayed out and thus Nala was cured by lord Sani.
