Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (SP)

Udupi, Jan 15: In a strange incident, it was found on Sunday January 14 morning that the thieves who had stolen silver ornaments and valuables from a Daivasthana about three months back, had kept a few of the stolen silver sheets back at the Daivasthana.

Thieves who had entered Neecha Daivasthana at Katapadi Yenagudde - Agrahara Durga Nagara in the taluk on the night of October 2 last year had taken away the idol of Neecha Daiva along with its silver aureole, silver frame of the door beams and the door, two handles which served as weaponry of the Daiva and some other silver valuables.

While the police were investigating the case, the devotees had sought intervention of the presiding deity of the Daivasthana, Neecha Daiva. They had prayed for divine intervention to ensure that the stolen items are returned. They had also put up an astrological query as per which they were given to understand that the stolen items would come back to the Daivasthana before the next Makara Sankramana.

The priest of the Daivasthana, who arrived for morning puja on the occasion of Makara Sankramana festival on Sunday, was cleaning the Daivasthana when he found that a packet wrapped in paper was lying near the grill of the front gate of the Daivasthana. He conveyed information about it to the managing committee of the Daivasthana. The members of the committee came there,opened the parcel and found a few pieces of silver sheets. The Kaup police had been alerted before that, as the concerned guessed the parcel to be belonging to the Daivasthana.

The police came there and took into possession the recovered items. The items now found are believed to weigh about 200 grams.

    Yes, They have to return back...Otherwise they cant live peacefully..Tulunada Daiva's are very powerful...Do not under estimate Daiva's.....No problem if you do not worship them, but please do not make courage to insult them or do not disturb daiva sana's or ornaments...
