Today August 31, 2013; Vijaya Aavani Thiruvadirai, is Day 41 of HH 46th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Srivan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Maha Desikan’s Chathurmasya sankalpam.Abhigamanam, Theertham, Srisathari and prasada viniyogam (fruits and venpongal) was done at the usual time.
Several shishyas had Samashrayanam and Bharanyasam done. What caught everyone’s attention was a young family getting Prappathi done. The small children caught our attention. Planning is an essential part of success. This family is an example. They have wisely gone for Bharanyasam together. We have to learn from them. Do not delay Prappathi. The time is Now. After Prappathi life is one without fear, for there will be no re-birth.
After Samashrayanam and Bharanyasam, Srimath Azhagiyasingar visits the Brindavanams of HH 41st and HH 44th Srimath Azhagiyasingars and supervises the progress of HH 45th Srimath Azhagiyasingar’s Brindavanam where work is in progress. Thiruvadirai is an important nakshatram in our SriVaishnava calender as it is the nakshatram that Bhaghavath Ramanujar chose to take avatharam. Lakshmana muni, Udayavar and Bhashyakarar are some names of Perumpudur Vallal. At Dasavatharan sannidhi, Ramanuja is housed in Thirumangai Azhwar sannidhi.
In the Ahobila Muth lineage, HH 9th Srimath Azhagiyasingar SriVan Sathakopa Sri Narayana Yathindra Mahadesikan took avatharam on Ani Thiruvadhirai day. HH was called to sanyasam in Hevilambi Margazhi Pournami day (1538). HH was called to SriVaikuntam in Aani masam Shubhakrith varusham Krishna Chathurthi day (1542). Asthana kalam-4 years and 6 months. Brindavanam is at SriRangam. HH 38th Srimath Azhagiyasingar took avatharam on Siddharthi Thai Tiruvadirai day (1860), accepted sanyashramam on Vishvavasu Aadi Uthiradam day (July 17, 1905). HH 37th Srimath Azhagiyasingar attained paramapadam without appointing a successor. For five and a half years there was no one in Asthanam. There were several swamis who wanted to serve SriMalola asthanam. So an election was held and Thirukuddanthai Swami got the highest number of votes and became the HH 38th Srimath Azhagiyasingar. Ashrama sweekaram was at Narasimhapuram. Paramapadaprapthi was on Soumya Krishnapaksham Ashtami (May 12, 1909). Asthanakalam was three years and 10 months. Brindavanam is at Sri Narasimhapuram.
