The Spirit of Kannagi Amman

Dushiyanthini Kanagasabapathipillai in Vattraappalai, Mullaithivu District

Hindus believe Kannagi has miraculous powers  

Situated in close proximity to the "Nanthikkadal" lagon in the Mullaithivu District is the quaintly beautiful Vattraappalai Kannagi Amman temple. Dedicated to Goddess Kannagi, who arrived from India after having burnt the city of Madudai. Vattraappalai ~ it is believed was the 10th place where she rested after arriving in Sri Lanka.

Legend has it that Vattraappalai was where she rested and her anger receded. Hindus believe Vattraappalai Kannagi Amman to be a deity of both miracles and mysteries. The temple is especially popular among Tamil Hindu women in Sri Lanka, because of her extraordinary power of blessing single women to find life partners.

Devotees from all corners of Sri Lanka travel to Vattraappalai during the Tamil Month of May (Vaikaasi Visaakam day ~ which falls in latter part of May or beginning of June) to fulfill their vows by making “Sakkarai Pongal” (Sweet Rice), and offer it to Goddess Kannagi. This annual event adds fervor to the festivities in Vattraappalai.

The temple stood tall during the height of the war (especially during the last phase) except minor damages and losses to its properties. “The foundation stone was laid to build a temple tower in 1982, but due war and displacement, the construction work could not be continued. After the resettlement in 2010, the consrtuction work was resumed and a “Kumbaabhishekam” (consecration) was held in April 2011. Daily Poojas (offerings) are being conducted now” according to the chief priest of the temple Kulasekaram Thirukrishnabhavan.

Kannagi's anklet was filled of diamonds and queen anklet was of pearls and in look were similar .
why the in story why ankets were compared .
compare shows in , diamonds and pearls , the kannagi would had been the very elder to the queen .
some mishappenings would had been taken in very past and the stories would had been going on birth by birth..

realy how many kannagi stories would had been created , how many girls would had made kannagi ,
how many boys and small, gods , devatas would had been made to run the story -would had made culprits and victims)

was the kannagi story was pre planned .( because of this writing how many lifes would be spoiled )
as agaytiar curses to jai indra /

What was cause behind every happening , why kovalan only became culprit or victim ,like kovalan and kanagi , how many lifes are spoiled are being spoiled from the very ancient times ( no one is blamed , blamed is the system of karmas ). what would had been the cause behind kannagi and kovalan story as if shown in the agaytiar movie agaytiar curses jaindran , and urvashi to born in the city of poompuhar .were jai indran with urvashi affairs wrong . who was jai indran , and who was urvashi .

person the indra was accused by the great gods , the link given below seekers/faith-and-rituals/

was jaiindra , his real son . in agaytiar movie agaytiar says to jai indra , jaiindra you born to indra and you have not understand me .

in dasavataram old movie,durvasa rishi curses to indra story might had link ,
poompuhar 's story and history is match able to the story shown in agaythyiar movie -- as agaythiar curses -- e=related

crores and crores of peoples are being killed ,destryoed in such a way no one can find out , and given different shapes and made to bad brains and minds ,
genetical deshaped and disorded to lusty and bad brains and bad minds .
are made from single soul to multy humans souls to suffer and painful
creatures to never become humans and buried alive under earth and even
killed into stomaches and made to toilets and throughn into hells like

Kannagi story was repeated again in the ambala under earth , this time also great cruilities happend on kannagi ,

if i am not wrong , kannagi , (tamil) is the daughter or sister of great and very ancient god can be said southern god . .

why the cruilities and mishappenings were and are happening again and again , what is the wrong with peoples and peoples went of wrong wisdom and misbehavings and bad acts ..
and peoples are beaten very badly and broken and even buried alive by the great gods and goddesses and great humans gods like murgan bhiraspaty ,bharama ,
dakshina moorty , narayanan , and many power full and great gods ..
