kalki purana

There are numerous interpretations of Vedic tradition. Avatara means "descent" and refers to a descent of the divine into mundane form. The Garuda Purana lists ten avatars, with Kalki being the tenth. The Bhagavata Purana initially lists twenty-two avatars, but mentions an additional three for a total of twenty-five. He is presented as the twenty-second avatar on that list. Popular images depict him riding a white horse with wings, known as 'Devadatta' or God given. In these images, Kalki is brandishing a brilliant sword in his left hand, eradicating the decadence of Kali Yuga. Lord Kalki will remove darkness of kali yuga and establish new yuga (age) called satya yuga on the earth. Satya yuga is also known as Krita yuga, same way, as per the characteristics of the next cycle of four yuga, next satya yuga will be known as Panchorath Yuga.

In Hinduism, Kalki Devanagari: meaning 'Eternity,' 'White Horse,' or 'Destroyer of Filth') is the final incarnation of Vishnu in the current Mahayuga, foretold to appear at the end of Kali Yuga, the current epoch. Religious texts called the Puranas foretell that Kalki will be atop a white horse with a drawn blazing sword. He is the harbinger of end time in Hindu eschatology, after which he will usher in Satya Yuga.

The name Kalki is a metaphor for eternity or time. Its origins may lie in the Sanskrit word kalka which means foulness or filth. Hence, the name translates to the 'destroyer of foulness,' 'destroyer of darkness," or 'destroyer of ignorance.' Another etymology from Sanskrit is 'white horse.'
In Buddhist Kalachakra tradition, 25 rulers of the Shambhala Kingdom held the title of Kalki, Kulika or Kalki-king.During Vaishakha, the first fortnight in Shukla Paksha is dedicated to fifteen deities, with each day for a different god. In this tradition, the twelfth day is Vaishakha Dwadashi and is dedicated to Madhava, another name for Kalki.


This temple is more than 2000 years old by construction. And this sthalam dates to Dwapara yuga. Sriman Narayana is present here in 4 of His Divya roopams, “Nindraan”, “Irundhaan”, “Kidanthaan”, “Nadanthaan” (Standing, Sitting, Sleeping (laying, actually said), walking). Sri Neervanna Perumal for “Nindraan” kolam, Sri Nrisimhar for “Irundhaan”, Sri Renganatha Perumal for ”Kidanthaan”, and Sri Thrivikramar for “Nadanthaan” are present to bless the devotees.
If one prays here in Thiruneermalai, he/she gets the benefit of praying in Naachiyar koil, Thiruvaali, Thiru-Kudanthai, and Thirukoilur divya desams, says “Thirumangai Azhwar”. Benefits of praying in Srirangam and Tirupathi are bestowed on devotees, says “Boothath azhwar”. Purana also says, that being happy on tapas done by Rishis like Brighu, Markandeya, and Vaalmiki, Lord Mahavishnu appeared in this kshethram to bless them. Brahmanda purana has references to this place. In Dwapara yuga, only two hills, Ahobilam and this one were present. After the pralayam, Arjuna did an Ashwamedha Yaagam here, on which Narasimha gave him darshan, since He was pleased.
