Sage Siladha, a resident of Tiruvaiyaru performed penance on Lord Shiva seeking child boon. A voice spoke to the sage telling him that his wish could be realized if he conducts the Puthrakameshti Yajna and he would get box with a child while tilling the land for the yagna.
He was advised to bring up the child having longevity of just 16 years only. Siladha found the box and on opening it, found a child with 3 eyes, 4 shoulders and crescent moon adoring the head.
Struck by a shock, he closed the box and opened again and found a child in normal human form. He named the child Japesar.
Japesar reached the age of 14 leaving just two years to complete the destined term of life. The sage was very sad. Knowing his father’s agony, Japesar started penance by standing on one leg on the Ayana Theertha tank in Tiruvaiyaru.
The creatures of the tank slowly began to consume him.Japesar was not deterred by the danger. Lord Shiva, moved by his penance, cured him completely and granted a long life.
Later, Japesar was married to Suyasambikai in Tirumazhapadi.Japesar continued his penance even after the marriage and was rewarded with a position as the chief of Shiva Ganas and further elevated as the first security chief at the first gate of Kailash and was named as Nandhi Deva.
