Seshachalam / Sheshadri

There was a heated argument between Adisesha and Vayudeva, angry Adisesha coiled round Lord’s Kreedachala and challenged Vayudeva to move him a little.

Vayideva blew him out along with the hill, Adisesha along with the hill was tossed down to the earth and got very much depressed at the insult.

Srimannarayana patted him with love and asked him not to worry as he would wear him as an ornament on his shoulders.

He also assured that the hill from the day on wards will assume his name as Seshachalam.

He assuaged (make less intense) further that “I would also be known hereafter as shesha chalapathi, the lord of Seshachala”.
