Crushing with courage the combats of the enemies, coming out all colorful in the efforts, courteous to the devotees, keeping the feet of matted haired Lord always in his heart were the attributes to the devotee kaLan^dhaik kOn kURRuvar.
He won the battles, which were boons for his bowing down to the Lord and devotees. His valor won a vast land and wealth. He could take the pride of having the powerful in all the four kinds of armies - squads of elephants, speeding horses, showy still strong chariots and specialized soldiers. When approached the priests of thillai (thillaivAz an^dhaNar) for his coronation, they refused saying, "Except for the emperors in chOza tradition we do not do that ceremony". So he moved to the mouno that ceremony". So he moved to the mountain state of chEralam (kerala) making some of the priests of thillai to take care of the crown.
He felt sad on his failure to get coronated by the priests of thillai. kURRuvar prayed to the Lord of pleasing dance to put His pleasant feet as crown on his head. The easily pleased God pleased the devotee by crowning His peerless feet in the sweetest dream of kURRuvar, who pleased the devotees with the plenty of his wealth. He got the coveted coronation ! Instead of getting crowned by the priests of thillai he got coronated by the power which is prayed by the priests of thillai !! His tremendous wealth served the true objective of earning as he spent it on the worship of the Lord of the world with the world worshiping his love for the Lord Shiva. While the money that is spent for material benefits never returns, the property that was used by kURRuvar out of his prosperous loving heart, brought him the worthy of all wealths - blissful place in the feet of God. Let the love of kURRuvar with which he spent his life in the service of Lord which brought him the feet of the Lord as his crown stay in the mind.
