Interesting News : Cobra offering Vilva leaves to Lord Shiva
Hi, I came across this article that was forwarded to me by a friend Prakash.D (regular reader of this blog) but was published in Tamil Newspaper Dinamalar. It is unbelievable but seems true and sure gives me the goosebumps. I would like to share it with you all....

A unique incident, call it a miracle, happened during the recent Solar Eclipse in a small village Thepperumanallur in Southern Indian State of Tamil Nadu. A Naga serpent (Cobra) had been observed visiting the Shiva Temple during Solar Eclipses. The temple priest and other locals in order to photograph these visits had offered milk during the last Solar Eclipse in July 2009 but failed to see the Cobra last time. But their abiding faith were amply rewarded during the recent annular eclipse on Jan 15th, 2010 when to the pleasant surprise of the priest on opening the Sanctum Sanctorum he saw the Cobra entwined on top of the Siva Lingam idol. He immediately called Mr. Thenappan the photographer who lives in Thrunagesvaram. Meantime a dozen or more people had assembled to witness this miracle. In front of their eyes the Naga went back to the “Vilwa tree" (Aegle Marmelops) plucked the leaves and came back all the way to drop it on the Siva Lingam. All these have been photographed by Mr. Thenappan (photos received directly from the photographer enclosed). Incidentally most men in the Agraharam (Brahmin’s colony) village are called Nagarajan (king of cobras) Nagalingam or Naganathan for a few generations now and the presiding deity in the nearby (1Km) ThiruNageshwaram is called Naganathaswamy. Perhaps there is a divine link between all these facts and happenings. Could it be a Siddhar? Wikipedia says “Siddhars are saints in India, mostly of the Saivaite denomination in Tamil Nadu, who professed and practised an unorthodox type of Sadhana, or spiritual practice, to attain liberation. Yogic powers called Siddhis are acquired by constant practice of certain yogic disciplines. Those who acquire these Siddhis are called Siddhas. Siddhars are people who are believed to control and transcend the barriers of time and space by meditation (Yoga), after the use of substances called Rasayanas that transform the body to make it potentially deathless, and a particular breathing-practice, a type of Pranayama. Through their practices they are believed to have reached stages of insight which enabled them to tune into the powers hidden in various material substances and practices, useful for suffering and ignorant mankind” Some of the Siddhars are reputed to leave their body and enter any other body even dead ones to protect their identity.

Dinamalar - Miracle on January 15, 2010 - Solar Eclipse day
Kumbakonam: Devotees were surprised to see a snake which brought Bilva leaves and did Archana to the Shiva Lingam at Theperumanallur Shiva Temple. Vedanta Nayaki Sametha Vishwanatha Swamy temple is located at Theperumanallur near Thirunageshwaram in Tanjore district. It has been customary to do Archana only with Rudraksha to Lord Vishavanatha in this temple. Shivacharya (Priest) Suresh found the snake lying over Lord Vishvanatha yesterday at 10.30 AM before the Solar Eclipse.

The snake got down and went straight to the nearby Bilva Tree. It creeped the tree and brought some Bilva leaves to the Sanctum Sanctorium of Lord Shiva. It hissed at the devotees who tried to follow. Climbing over the Linga and taking a posture of having seated on the Lord's head it did it's Archana with its Bilva Leaves! This made all those who were watching the episode wonderstruck. It had repeated the same act a couple of times which drew many villagers to rush to the temple, see the snake and have a Darshan of the Lord.
