He prayed to Lord in touching words to pardon him if he had committed sins knowingly or unknowingly.? He also prayed that he should have no enemies to fight as he had no such warring mindset.? If and when he had to counter an enemy, he may be blessed to absorb half the strength of his opponent so that he may defeat him.? He went to various Shiva Kshetras, dug tanks for the abishek of Lord and performed pujas with Vilwa leaves.? Pleased with his life of penance and worship, Lord appeared before him and granted the boon he wished.? Pandithakudi near Koothanallur in Tiruvarur district is one such famous place Vali where worshipped Lord Shiva.? He bound the ten headed Ravana with his Vaal ? tail.?
