According to mythology, Parvati playfully closed her consort Lord Shiva’s eyes for three seconds and darkened the entire universe. Infuriated Shiva cursed his consort to be born thrice in the physical world as Icha Shakthi, Gnana Shakthi, and Kriya Shakthi, after which he will remarry her. This is the legendary story behind the three important temples of Mother Shakti in Tamil Nadu, South India.
In Vadivudai Amman temple, the Goddess is present in the form of Gnana Shakthi – the one who blesses her devotees with divine knowledge and wisdom. It is also believed that Nandi, the vehicle of Lord Shiva received the vision of the supreme cosmic dance of the Lord at this temple.
This place was once a dense forest filled with trees and shrubs with scented flowers, called the Suganda Vanam. Once people from the neighboring villages found a grazing cow showering milk on a shrub, under which they found a Swayambu (self-manifested) Lingam. They worshipped the Lord as Sungandavaneswaran. In due course, the name transformed to Thirumanangeesar, a Tamil name.
