I would like to narrate a story behind this Bhana linga (in photo). Recently Prapancham Sri Ravindran organized a music program in Pammal for an ardent devotee of Periyava by name Sri Venkatesan who is immensely blessed by Sri MahaPeriyava . Also Prapancham Ravindran traveled with him to Omkareshwar to have darshan.
He handpicked a stone for his Mridangam-tuning from the banks of Narmada. At home as he was getting ready for a concert and was about to use this, a close friend of his interrupted and stopped him from using that stone as he could see Sakshath Sri MahaPeriyava in it. Ravindran sir rightfully placed HIM (the stone) in his Pooja place as I happened to witness this and more so happened on Guruvaram, Thursday. Sri MahaPeriyava is omnipresent everywhere and please observe the linga with more focus.
