Kiratha Sastha Ashtotharam

Kiratha Sastha Ashtotharam

Translated by
P.R.Ramachander

(Lord Kiratha (hunter) Sastha is the son born   Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi when they  took the form of hunters to  give Pasupathasthra   to  Arjuna. This form is worshipped in Erumeli Kotta temple  , Baluserry Kotta temple  , Nilambur temple  , Trivandrum Kizhakke  Kotta temple  . The great book “SAthru Pooja Kalpadruman” explains in detail   the method of worship of Kirtha Sastha (I am indebted for this information to Sri Aravind Subramanyam,  a young authority   on everything   related to Sastha)
There is an opinion held by  people that  The Vettakku Oru Magan  worshipped   in many temples (including Baluserry Kotta temple)    in Malabar , where there are few  temples dedicated  to  Sastha, is same as Kirata  Sastha.May Lord Kiratha Sastha   shower his blessings on all  those who happen to read  this Ashtotharam.)

It is posssible that Vettaiku Oru Magan is name of Ekalavya. This is what I found on internet. And Kirat Sashta is just another name of Ayyyapa. Pl dont mind if this is wrong.
Regards.

In Kerala he is believed to be a son of Lord Shiva and not Ekalavya.

So Dharma Sashta is different God than Kirat Sashta? Because I knew that Sashta is son of Mohini and Shiva. Kirath Sashta is son of Shiva and Parvati?

P.R. Ramachander said...

Some group believe , He is a different God who was born to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi , when they took the form of hunters and some believe he is son of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu and hence he u is Sastha.I am not an authority to give ruling about it .
