Parakala Mutt History:
The Swayambhu Vigraha of Sri Lakshmi Hayagriva was given to Goddess Saraswathi by Lord Brahma for worship. Goddess Saraswathi who also gained knowledge from Lord Hayagriva in turn gifted the idol to Bhagavad Ramanuja when she bestowed him with the title “Sri Bhaskara”. After him, the iodol was worshipped by Sri Nigamantha Maha Desika.This great sage established a mutt at Kanchipuram in service of the Lord in 1338A.D and proclaimed Visishtadwaita.
Vedanta Desika started his scholarly outporings numbering more than hundred with the stuti of Lord Lakshmi Hayagriva, the Lord of Wisdom.The glorious and honoured practice of worshipping Lord Hayagriva was handed over to Sri Brahmatantra Swami.Since then, the idol is being worshipped by the lineage of the Acharyas of Sri Prakala Mutt with utmost devotion.The present Acharya of Sri Parakala Mutt,H.H. Srimad Abhinava Vageesha Swamy,is 36th in the order.

Sri Hayagriva Incarnation
The Hayagriva incarnation took place to restore the Vedas from Demons.Brahma the creator after Vedopadesam could understand how various kalpams had begun,due to his knowledge and power became extremely proud of his position.Sriman Narayana wanted to remove Brahma’s pride.From a couple of water droplets from the lotus seat,Lord incarnated two Asuras named Madhu and Kaitabha.They stole the Vedas from Lord Brahma.
Lord Brahma was unable to carry on his work of creation without the Vedas,Brahma rushed to the Lord Vishnu and pleaded to save Vedas.And said the whole world is surrounded by darkness due to the absence of Vedas.Please arise from the Yoga nithra and Please give me back my eyes which have been blinded by my own pride.
Lord Narayana with devine power incarnated as Hayagriva,white Horse faced,rushed to Paathaala loka and killed Demons.Lord Hayagriva handed over the hidden Vedas to Lord Brahma with the help of many sages.This avtaaram was made on a Avani month,sravaNa nakshthram paurnami thithi.
