Pattinathar was born to Sivanesa Chettiar and Gnanakalai. His father was a trader in Tiruvidaimarudur Thanjavur district. His birth name was Swetharanyar after as epithet of Lord Siva of Swetharanyeswarar Temple. He was also called as Thiruvenkadar by the people. When he was five years old he lost his father. Like his father he spent money on Siva devotees and fed them daily. He was a trader and had enough wealth. At sixteen years he was married to Sivakalai daughter of another trader by the name of Sivasithamparam Chettiyar and his wife Sivakamy. Even after fifteen years of marriage they had no children. Meantime there was a very poor Saivaite by the name of Sivasarumar who spent all his wealth in feeding the Siva devotees. When all his wealth was spent he sold his wife s nuptial chain thali and fed the devotees of Lord Siva. Once in his dream Lord Siva appeared and told him he would find him Siva as a baby at a certain spot. Hand over the baby boy to Thiruvenkadar. He would give gold equal to the weight of the baby. The Saivaite devotees found the baby and took him to Pattinathar. He adopted the child and gave the couple gold and more wealth.
