Once there was a couple named Kesava Samayaji and Kantimathi. They both were leading a righteous life and were also very devoted but they were childless. Once a great sage named Thirukatchi Nambi visited the couple’s house and suggested them to perform a Yagna and offer prayers to Lord Parthasarathy of Thiruvallikeni. This will fulfill their wish of having a son. As instructed, they both performed the Yagna and also worshipped the deity with utmost dedication and devotion. To this, the deity was extremely pleased with their sincerity and so he blessed them with a son. When the child was born, there were several divine marks which signified that he is the incarnated form of Lord Lakshman, younger brother of deity Lord Rama.
