how fierce the Lord of Ettumanur could be whereas Lord Siva of Vaikom is ever benign
towards his devotees. Vaikathappan gives his all to d nothing in return and is easily
pleased. Whereas his counterpart at Ettumanur, like the Lord of Tirupati, is Vaddikasula
Vada - one who takes his dues with interest. He is very difficult to please and demands
sincere devotion and severe penance from us. But once pleased he is bhakta dasa, showers
all prosperity on them for life here and liberation hereafter.
