He started to torture the saints and innocent peoples. Having nothing to do, all the saints and peoples requested Lord Shiva to put an end to his evil. As they asked, Lord Shiva took his incarnate 'Agora Murthi' and killed the 'Padmasuran' under a tree (which is now in Thiruvengadu temple, back to the entrance of Agora Murthi). All the peoples thanked Lord Shiva for saving them. There is a story Vedarishi, a Brahmin had placed his bundle of food in the hollow of a tree. A snake residing in the hollow, spewed poison on the food. Unaware of this, Vedarishi gave this food to a vedic priest, who died of the poison.
This Brahmin was absolved of his Brahmahathi Dosham(killed dosham) by worshipping Lord Siva of Thiruvengadu. Suwedaka on realizing that he was destined to die in his eighth year, reached Thiruvengadu and performed Siva pooja. As soon as he saw Yama, he held on to the Siva Linga tightly. Yama on seeing Thiruvengadar, ran away in fear and died. On the request of the Devas, the Lord brought Yama back to life. There is a separate sannithi for Budhan, the temple is quite large and all four important saivite saints have sung the price of this god.
