As part of the Navarathri Utsavam at Sri Devaperumal Sannidhi, Kanchipuram, Day 5 celebrations took place Yesterday [October 8, 2013, Vijaya Varusha Purattasi 21am naal (Visakam)]. There was purappadu for Sri Perudevi Thayar and Sri Devaperumal along with Ubhaya Nachiyars in the evening. Sri Devaperumal mesmerised His bhaktas in the Venugopalan Thirukolam. Jaganmata, Sri Perundevi Thayar, who is ever ready to shower Her karunyam on all the devotees, also had special alankaram.
During the purappadu, Thoopul Swami Desikan, having purappadu in Yali Vahanam, passed through Kanchi Gopuram and had the direct kataksham of Thayar and Perumal. This purappadu for Swami Desikan is part of the Purattasi Thiruvona Nakshatra Varashika Mahotsavam at Thoopul which commenced on October 4, 2013.
