After undertaking huge penance for days together and performing complicated yagna's, the lord gave him darshan. He appeared in the form of Sarathy of Lord Arjun sitting in front of his chariot. He is holding only the couch on one of his hands, and the other is bruised with scars which depicts the shots of the arrows which the lord borne in order to shield Arjuna. King Sumathirajan worshipped the lord and requested him to stay in this very form at the same spot and give darshan to his other devotees.
