Today, 4 May 2014, Jaya Varusha Chithirai Thiruvadhirai; is the Swami Emberumanar varusha thirunakshatram was celebrated in a grand manner at Srirangam.In SriRangam Udayavar Sannidhi is located in Akalangan Tiruchutthu opposite Chakrathazhwar Sannidhi. This used to be NamPerumal’s Vasantha Mandapam and as per Perumal’s order Bhaghavadh Ramanujacharya’s mortal remains were buried here.(This is called Palli paduthal) This is where we find Udayavar Sannidhi. Moolavar’s Tirumeni is called Thanaana Tirumeni that is Tirumeni per se. No Tirumanjanam is done and a paste of Pachai karpooram and saffron is applied during Chitra and Aipaasi. Tirumanjanam for Utsava murthis happens every Tiruvadhirai. When we enter the Sannidhanam the vibrations are evident and one feels humbled. Today morning Purappadu took place at 6.00 a.m. and the residents of Chitra Veedhis and others had the fortune of having Ramanuja Kataksham on this Holy Day.
The following are some of the photos taken today morning..
