The day at the Mutt began with Vishvaroopam followed by the reading of Panchangam (Panjanga patanam). Thereafter, the recitation of Nityanusandhanam began. It started with Gadya Thraya recitation followed by Rama’s Sri Nrisimha Panchamrutha Stotram. This was followed by the anusansandhanam of Mukkur Srimath Azhagiyasingar’s – 1) Panchamrutha Stotram 2) Sri Lakshmi Nrisimha Karavalamba Stotram and 3) Sri Lakshmi Nrisimha Prappathi. Till Srimad Mukkur Azhagiasingar’s Panchamrutha stotram, the recitation was done in one voice. From Karavalambam sandhai format was done.

The recitation ended with Mukkur Srimath Azhagiyasingar’s Dvadasa Stotram. This took a little more than an hour and was done when the Abhigamanam was being performed by Srimath Azhagiyasingar.
There is one swami who reads Srimath Valmiki Ramayanam all the time. One can spot him near Anjaneya Sannidhi outside Sri Ranganachiyar sannidhi or near Paramapadhavasal in Periya koil but when Srimath Azhagiyasingar is in Srirangam, the venue is always infront of the Swarna Mandapam. Swami says all problems can be solved by Sri Ramayana parayanam. This swami is the Douhitran (daugter’s son) of Srimath 41st Azhagiyasingar.
Lot of shishyas offered Dandavath pranamams to Srimath Azhagiyasingar, had Theertham, Shatari and Prasadam (fruits and Dadhiyonam). This was over by 8:45 am. The following are some of the photos taken during the occasion.
