As part of this recitation, on Day 09 (26th August 2013), the second thousand part of the Japam commenced starting with Kalasa Prathishtai. Kalasa Prathishtai was performed by fetching water from Krishna river in 10 kalasams, taking them through the temple chanting pancha-sookthams, getting the Blessings of Sri Mattapallinathan in the cave, going around (pradakshinam) two times around the YagnaVatica mandapam and then placing them in the mandapam for the Japam. Aavaahanam was then performed for the 10 kalasams – nine kalasams for the nine padams of Nrusimha Manthram (Ugram, Veeram, Mahaavishnum, Jwalantham, Sarvathomukham, Nrusimham, Beeshanam, Badram and Mruthyumruthyum) – Tenth kalasam (Pradhana kalasam) for Mahaavishnum and Badram.

There was only one Thampathy present for Sankalpam – Sri Dwarakanath thampathy – and that day happens to be the Sathabishekam for them – it was the wish of Sri Swamy that He chose them for the sankalpam and Kanyadhaanam. Their Sathaabishega Udhaga Saanthi took place in the form of (mini) Abbaratham on the previous day.
