PALANI

"Knowledge of course will come, but wisdom with its peace and bliss will linger on the shore." Ganapati outwitted his brother by sheer wisdom.  Lord Subrahmanya was not very much satisfied with this explanation of his father and in
anger came away to Tiruvannagudi, the place at the foot of the Sivagiri Hill. Then he came to Sivagiri Hill itself.   When Balasubrahmanya got angry for not receiving the fruit and went into seclusion, Siva pacified him saying that the fruit
was not separate from him (Subrahmanya) and he himself was the fruit [Pazham (Palam) -fruit; nee-you].

Lord Subrahmanya forsook all worldly garments and with kaupeenam. (Just a shred of cloth to cover his nakedness)
and a baton staff in hand, he became a recluse. Finding the two hills nearby, he got on the top of one and rested. When
Idumban wanted to lift his Kavadi to continue his journey, he could not lift it, as Subrahmanya had already got on the top of one and it was heavy. He investigated the reason and, finding an intruder on the top of the bigger hill, he challenged him to get down.
