Today, After all the hectic festivities in the morning, Perarulalan got ready to bless us all in PunyaKoti Vimanam in the evening.
The Thiruabharnam during this purappadu is called Thanga Thiru Abishekam. The ninth day of the Brahmotsavam coincides with sharvanam star, which is the birth star of Swamy Vedantha Desikan, who is eagerly waiting for his arrival in his sannidhi in thooppul. On reaching thooppul Perarulalan receives dharsana thambulam from Swamy and then honors Swamy with Sathari and Maalai. Then prasadam was distributed to the ghosthi’s and after wards Swamy bids reluctant farewell to our Lord. From thoopul Varadar then proceeded towards Gangai kondan mandapam and then back to Kovil.Varadar’s purappadu, during Brahmotsavams, are not confined to mada veedhis, as in other divya desams, but covers approximately 12 kilometers covering most part of Kanchipuram, may be indicate that He is the Lord of the entire Kshethram. Varadar in all his vahanams would go up to Gangai kondan mandapam where ThiruAradhanam is performed before heading back to Kovil. The only exception is the tenth day purappadu in Vettiver Chapparam.
