Thiru Sirupuli Nayanar was born in a Brahmin family in a village Thiruvakkur, one of the flourished lands of Chozha Kingdom.    This is one of the most glorious villages famous for the generosity and righteousness of its people.  Thiru Gnana Sambandhar beautifully mentioned in one of the compositions about the bounteousness of the people who were lived in this sacred land.

Thiru Siupuliyar was well versed with the Vedas and engaged good part of his life in performing fire sacrifices for the welfare of the world.  He was a zealous devotee of Lord Shiva and worshipped Lord Thanthondri Nathar and his consort Goddess Ghatganetri in Thirukkavur.  He passionately receives the devotees of Lord Shiva with utmost reverence to his home and provides them with food and necessities.  He treated the devotee of Lord as Lord Shiva himself and spent blissful hours in the association of them.  He took his service to Lord as a promise; he continued to feed as many devotees of Lord.  At last, Lord himself appeared before Thiru Sirupuli Nayanar as one of his guests.  Thiru Sirupuli Nayanar continued his self-less service to Lord and his devotees for several years and attained the Abode of Lord Shiva in the Tamil month Karthikai – Pooradam. 

In the Tamil month Karthikai – Pooradam is widely celebrated as Guru Puja Day in the temples of Lord Shiva.

Jaya Jaya Sankara Hara Hara Sankara !!
Jai Sriman Narayana !!
