  A court official known to Valllar has invited vallalar to stay with him for a few days at his home at Manjakkuppam.Vallalar accepted his invitation.The official brought a bullock cart to Vadalur to take vallalar with him as modern transport were not much available in those days.

On hearing this Vallalar told the thieves"அவசரமோ" which means "are you in a haste" & looked at them.Their raised hands came to still position.They could n't lower their hands.Suddenly they lost their vision.They immediately knelt before Vallalar & asked him to forgive them.Vallalar forgave them & restored their vision.They went around the cart & worshiped Vallalar,left them harmless.On seeing this,cart driver & the peon returned & requested Vallalar to forgive them for running away from the scene. These are one of the miracles performed by Vallalar.
