Dead child resurrected by the grace of Lord Shiva: The glory of the Shwet Madhav shrine.

Dead child resurrected by the grace of Lord Shiva: The glory of the Shwet Madhav shrine.

Once the sages-saints united and said to Lord Brahma - Lord!  You ever said that you will tell the whole story of Shwetamadhav.  Let us tell that story today, we all are very curious about who founded the Shwet Madhav Shrine.
Brahma said - In the Satyuga there was a powerful king named Shwet.  He was a very wise, brave, truth-loving and compassionate care taker of subject.  People used to lived for ten thousand years under his rule.  At least no one died in childhood.
The rule of King Shwet continued in the same way that an event occurred after many years.  Righteous Rishi Kapal Gautham used to live in the reign of King Shwet.  He had a beautiful son.
This beautiful little son of Kapal Gautam passed away before the tooth came out.  This was unthinkable in the rule of king Shwet.  So sage Kapal reached the court of Gautam Raja with him on his lap.
When the king saw Rishi Kumar, he could not believe that, he thought that child had either slept or was unconscious.  When it was found out that it had passed, he prayed for his to survive.
Seeing the no effect of the prayer, the king said - If I could not able to bring this child who has gone to Yamlok to the earth within seven days, then I will jump on the burning pyre.
Saying this, the king chanted Shiva mantra by worshiping Mahadev Ji with one lakh Nilkamal(Blue lotus).  Lord Shiva appeared with Parvati and respected the devotion of the king and said - O 'Rajan!  I am very happy with you.
On hearing this words of Mahadev Ji, King Shwet looked towards him.  Bhasma on body, wearing baaghamber on waist, adorned the moon on the forehead, the king bowed on the earth as soon as he saw Lord Shiva with eyes.
'God!  If you are happy with me, if you have mercy on me, then this Brahmin-boy lying in the control of Kaal(death) should come back alive again.  I have made this pledge.  Take care of my words, Lord.
Hey Mahesh!  You give him full life and whatever age it is, he should complete it well, just do it, Lord.  Mahadev ji was very happy to hear this king Shwet thing.
He commanded Kaal, who gave fear to all the creatures , and Kaal made that child alive .  When the child was weeping, Mahadeva became disappeared with Parvati Devi.
After this grace of Lord Shiva, King Shwet ruled with ease for thousands of years and then, when he became old, after considering the worldly dharma and Vedic rules, left everything and worshiped Lord Keshav.
King Shwet went to the Purushottam region of the South Sea and built a beautiful temple near the temple of Jagannathji there and revered the statue of Lord Shwetamadhava made of white stone in it.
After the installation and worshiping of the idol, he gave a lot of donations to Brahmins, poors, orphans and ascetics and offered obeisance in front of Lord Madhava and chanted and worshiped the Mantra by remaining silent and without food for one month.
Jagadguru Srihari came in front of the king along with all the gods on praising King Shwet in this way.  God said - 'Rajan!  Your intelligence is very good.  You think for the people, I am happy, ask for some good boon.
Hearing the word of God, Maharaj Shwet said - 'God!  If I am your devotee, then give me this wonderful boon that I should only get the imperishable Vaikunthadham above Brahmaloka.  May your wish be fulfilled by your grace.
Lord Narayana said - Rajendra!  You will go to my world by crossing the whole world.  The fame that you have received here will spread in all the three worlds.  I will always stay here.  This pilgrimage will be called Shwetgangaes by deity and demon etc. .
Vishnu ji said, who will sprinkle water of Shwetganges from the front of Kush, he will go to heaven.  One who will visit and pay respect to the idol named Shvetamadhav installed here, he will attain the ultimate post after death.
