Sri Sasthru sthavam praising Bala Sastha of Trayambakapuram

Sri Sasthru sthavam

Sengalipuram  Anantharama    Deekshithar

Translated  by

(Though  the devotees of Sastha   , praise  him as the  Lord of Trayambakapuri   many of them may not be aware about the  location  of  Trayambaka Puri.    This  place is near  Thiruvarur   of Tamilnadu   in the  Nannilam Taluq of  Tanjavur district.   This is a small village (called Erumathalai   village)   houses a very small temple of  Lord Sastha   in the form of a boy riding on an elephant apart from the famous Shiva(Trayambakeswarar ) temple  . This village   is very near   SEngalipuram .The God is called as Ayyanar or  Balasastha or Yanaimel azhagar  and is the family deity of  the Deekshithars  of  Sengalipuram. It is extremely difficult to locate this temple   and  The Great Sengalipuram Anantharama  Deekshithar   has composed   this great prayer  praising that Bala  Sastha. In 1970   when this prayer was published  one gurukkal   living  in Perumpannayoor    (Via  Kudavasal )  was looking after the temple   and doing pooja to it.Sri Aravind Subramanyam    an authority  on worship of Sastha   has  written a page   about this temple   enclosing  a  photograph of the temple  (http://shanmatha.blogspot.in/2011/11/trayambakapuram-my-favorite-temples.html . THere is also reference  to this temple in  https://shanthiraju.wordpress.com/thiruvarur/
Please chant this great  prayer  and get rid of problems created  by  Lord Saturn or Rahu or Kethu.
