Keralam, the piece of divine land, holds a legendary significance as the mythology says about the emergence of this terrain when Lord Parasurama flung his axe resulting the receding of sea to create the land, which is now called Keralam. This Parasurama Bhoomi has an age old culture and immense civilization. As model land for aesthetic knowledge attributes, Keralam showcases its divinity through literatures, customs, rituals, festivals, architectures etc.
Vaikhari acts as an aggregator of all the resources that projects the conventional, cultural and aesthetic knowledge of Keralam.
Vaikhari is that form of speech which is uttered, expressed, or otherwise manifested as the vehicle of thought. In "Kundalini Yoga", Swami Sivananda Saraswati says,
"The Vedas form the sound-manifestation of Ishvara. That sound has four divisions, Para which finds manifestation only in Prana, Pasyanti which finds manifestation in the mind, Madhyama which finds manifestation in the Indriyas, and Vaikhari which finds manifestation in articulate expression. Articulation is the last and grossest expression of divine sound-energy. The highest manifestation of sound-energy, the primal voice, the divine voice is Para. The Para voice becomes the root-ideas or germ-thoughts. It is the first manifestation of voice. In Para the sound remains in an undifferentiated form. Para, Pasyanti, Madhyama and Vaikhari are the various gradations of sound. Madhyama is the intermediate unexpressed state of sound. Its seat is the heart. The seat of Pasyanti is the navel or the Manipura Chakra. Yogins who have subtle inner vision can experience the Pasyanti state of a word which has colour and form, which is common for all languages and which has the vibrating homogeneity of sound. The Lord manifests Himself through his Mayaic power first as Para Vani in the Muladhara Chakra at the navel, then as Madhyama in the heart and then eventually as Vaikhari in the throat and mouth. This is the divine descent of His voice. All the Vaikhari is His voice only. It is the voice of the Virat Purusha."
