   The lesson is that having been born to a wicked person in the past birth, even the divine Mother had to be born again to get back Her Lord so that she would not have to be born again. Those worshipping in this temple will have the eternal happiness of total salvation. Hence the place came to be known as Karu Illai meaning that there would be no entering into a womb again. In course of time, it got changed as Karuveli which is also an apt name meaning that the place was a fence not allowing a further birth.
