கைலாச வாகனம் / இராவண அனுக்கிரக மூர்த்தி

Ravananugraha-murti

According to Hindu scriptures, Ravana once tried to lift Mount Kailash, but Shiva pushed the mountain into place and trapped Ravana beneath it. For a thousand years imprisoned under Kailash, Ravana sang hymns in praise of Shiva. He cut off one of his heads and built a veena from it. He used his tendons for the strings and began singing praises of Shiva. The pleased Shiva bestowed a powerful linga, his symbol.
