Masi Makam

Masi Makam The mythological story behind same is that when God Siva appeared opposite the sea in the vicinity where Varunan (Salapathi) remained submerged for his sins, blessed him and freed him from his desires. Varunan in turn worshipped him and requested a varam that anyone who bathes in the sea fronts will be freed from desires and attain high mukthi, and for God Siva to be in presence here on this occasion of Masi thiru Maham being the tenth day of the month of Masi to bless them. Hence the Masi Maham festival is essentially a day of Siva Worship with sacred Sea Bathing at the sea front. http://forumhub.mayyam.com/hub/viewlite.php?t=65
