Today Vijaya Panguni Rohini,04.04.2014 was the 94th Tirunakshatram of Paravakkotai Srimadh Andavan, Sri Gopala Desika Mahadesikan. The celebrations started from 29.03.2014 and devotees enjoyed upanyasams on topics ranging from Vibhishana sarangathi to Acharya Vaibhavam by scholars of repute like Adoor Asuri Madhavachari Swami , Sampath Dikhisthar swami, Urapatur swami, Kuruchi Ranganathan swami, Tirucherai Raman swami ,Navalpakkam swami among others.Vedha, Divya Prabhandha and Grantha Chathushtya parayanam took place. Last evening vishesha Tirumanjanam took place at Swami’s Brindavanam.
Today morning devotees gathered in large numbers at the ashram to participate in the Tirunakshatram celebrations. In the show-case displaying the books could be seen two divya mangalamurthis of Paravakkotai swami which bore a striking resemblance to swami. We were informed that anyone interested could purchase the same. After acharya sambavanais were done satrumurai took pace and by 11.30 a.m. we got the much awaited Perumal theertham and Sripada theertham. Then we got to offer our dandavath pranams to Srimadh Sri Raghuveera Mahadesikan the present pontiff of the ashram and obtain mantrakshatai . After this we got to see the archa Tirumeni of Paravakkotai swami and the new silver SriSathari. Vishesha thadeearadhanai took place afterwards.
