According to Shaiva historians, they were defeated by Sampanthar in so called "punal vaatham" and "anal vaatham". what is this vaatham? Vaatham is debate in Tamil, that mean they have to argue with ideological ground, just like any social debates. But this historic debate were occurred in a manner of black Magic.Sampanthar and Samana saints had put their palm leaves in flowing water and Sampanthar's palm leaves did not gone with the water flow. This was the so called Punal vaatham. When they were put in fire and Sampanthar's palm leaves did not burn in to ash.This was the Anal vaatham.Typical stories from mental hospitals. So the King Ninraseer Nedumaran and his Brahmin gangs had massacred.
This holocaust was instigated by Nayanar and his people.This nayanar is a Shaivite Brahmin.Who was the real culprit behind this heinous crime against native people? This episode is well glorified by the followers of Shaiva cult.I could not see any heroism or humanism in this brutal Kaluvetram massacre of Samana/Jain monks.
Who are those so called Samana's? They are sons of soil.They had many type of native believe systems.Generally they are Samanar's or Jain's.Actually this religion is not a religion in the sense of other organized religions.
Organized religion is entirely a foreign idea.It was brought up by Brahmins, early christians and muslims.
Sanmargam or Samanam was practice in India,even before the invention of Vedham or Veda.Other name for this belief is Jainism, it's a twisted word of gyan or gnanam.
