Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal Koil Brahmotsavam: Hamsa Vahanam


Share post:

As part of the ongoing Brahmotsavam at Sri Varadaraja Perumal Thirukkoil, Kanchipuram, utsavar Sri Devaperumal had purappadu on Hamsa vahanam today morning (May 23rd 2013; Thursday).

Very early in the morning Devathirajan left the Vaha mandapam on the Hamsa Vahanam.

Devathirajan literally flew in the Hansa Vahanam today morning and was in full control. Let me elaborate, the shear speed Devathirajan made the sri padam thangies move is second only to his Garuda Vahanam (which is scheduled for tomorrow morning). When I mentioned about control, I meant it literally, watch the pictures closely and you would notice that our Devathirajan has got the lagan (reins) of the Hamsam in his left hand.

I would not do justice to Hamsa Vahanam if I don’t mention about Perumal’s Thiruvadi. In this vahanam, perumal is seen wearing a decorative joothi. He is dressed as a warrior, as he fought on back of hamsam to retrieve the Vedas. Was it not these feet that walked with the Jagat Acharyan all the way from the Vindya mountains to Kanchipuram in one night.

The following are some of the photographs taken during the utsavam earlier today…
