NANDANAR

IN the village of Athanur in the Chola country, there lived a pious man called Nanda.

He belonged to the tiller class. We call them Harijans today.

Nanda worked for the village, and lived on whatever the people gave him.

Nanda was greatly devoted to God Siva.

In temples they beat drums. Haven't you heard them? These drums need leather. Leather comes from the bodies of dead animals. Nanda gave leather pieces to Siva temples free, because of his love of God.

Everyday Nanda stood at a distance from the temple, and worshipped God. He could not go into the temple. In those days

Harijans were not allowed entry into big temples.

Near Athanur was another villa-e called Punkanur. In Punkanur is a great Siva temple. Nanda went to that village also to Worship the God there. He could not go inside. So there also he prayed from outside the temple gate.
