MALISSERI NAMBOODIRI – ARDENT DEVOTEE OF LORD GURUVAYURAPPA

INTRODUCTION
Few hundred years back, there lived a staunch devotee of Lord Guruvayurappan, and his name was Sri Mallisseri Namboodiri, who was the chief cook in the Guruvayur Temple. Once he was supposed to prepare food for 1000 devotees in the next day morning, for which the food items had been provided to him by a devotee. That time, one of his assistant, Sri Krishna was taken sick leave. Namboodiri was no other option except to chant the Lord’s glories during the night. The next day morning, to his great surprise, his assistant was returned to duty, and prepared food for the 1000 devotees.
Namboodiri was very happy, and worshipped Lord Guruvayurappan. After some time, he returned to the temple kitchen, but he could not trace his assistant. Then, he came to know, that his assistant didn’t attend his duty and he was taking rest at his home. Immediately, Namboodri got realized that the food was prepared by none other than the great Lord Sri Guruvayurappan itself and he has come in the form of the assistant cook, in order to help him. Immediately, joyful tears fell down from his eyes, and he informed the incident to the temple management and by hearing the news, the people in Guruvayur were got very much delighted and praised the glory of Lord Sri Guruvayurappan.
Let us worship the great devotee and be blessed.
