Dakshayagnam: A Grand Kathakali Performance

Legends of Kathakali from Kalamandalam, Sadnam, Margi and Kottakal

Saturday, May 21, 2005 6:30 PM

A GRAND KATHAKALI PERFORMANCE Saturday, May 21, 2005 6:30 PM Venue: To Be Decided Daksha Yagam by Irayimman Tampi (1783-1856) Daksha, the son of Brahma, and his wife Prasuti adopted a child whom they had discovered in a conch shell. The child was called Sati who finally got married to Siva. Daksha regarded Siva as his son-in-law and did not realize his greatness. Daksha treated Siva with contempt, and when he commenced to perform a yaga he proclaimed that the sacrificial offering would not be pre-offered to Siva. Sati went to witness the yaga and to see her family, but she was abused and sent away. She returned to Siva in shame and anger and requested Siva to punish Daksha. Siva sent two dreadful creatures, Virabhadra and Bhadrakali to destroy Daksha. They beheaded Daksha. On Brahma's request to be merciful, Siva relented and restored life to Daksha.
