Although human society is divided due to various reasons, it is only in God that all are united. We know that God is always present in the hearts of those who have peace of mind and purity of mind. Some devotees are submissive to the Lord in love and affection. There are some other devotees of God who are endowed with love and morality and punish those who disturb their devotees with anger and express their devotion to The Lord. Similarly, in Periyapuranam, Chandesura Nayanar punished his father for causing harm to the Lord. In appreciation of that the Lord blessed him with final emancipation and made the world aware of the glories of Chandesura Nayanar. The characteristic of this article is to highlight the methods of worship Nayanars followed.
