Koonamuthappan requested the Goddess to give him the Mantram that would enable him to please and possess Chathan Swamy, the son of Shree Parameswara. Pleased at her devotee's penance the Goddess told him the Moola Mantram to make Chathan appear before him and the Dhyana Mantram to worship him every day. He then went to the Himalayas and following the advice of the Nga Sages, entered into a severe penance.
