Thai Punarvasu is one of the most important utsavams in Melkote. That was the day when Udayavar unearthed the Thiruvigraham of Swami ThirunArAyanan, the presiding deity of of ThirunArAyanapuram, also known as Melkote. During that utsavam, SwAmi Udayavar will be wearing white coloured vastram before changing to saffron, thereby enacting the happenings which were the results of kirimi kanda ChOzhan’s onslaught on Srivaishnavas 900 years ago. Thai Punarvasu comes on 26th January 2013, a convenient day for people in India. All Srivaishnavas must attend the Utsavam if possible.
