Mukkur Azhagiyasingar_2

Today 7th of September, Aavani Hastham is the  118th Thirunakshathram of Sri VedAntha Yatheendhra Mahaa Desikan – 44th in the line of succession as Ahobila Mutt PeetAdhipathi (Srimath Mukkur Azhagiyasingar), who completed the construction of the abandoned South Gopuram of Lord RanganAthan at Srirangam . For hundreds of years , that Gopuram just had its foundations but was never completed . One day the ancient Lord addressed an old VaishNavite AchAryan residing at DasAvathAra Sannidhi and commanded him to complete the construction of the unfinished Gopuram and consecrate it . The old AchAryan protested to the older Parama Purushan and said that he was too old to undertake such a gigantic kaimkaryam given his advanced age . The Parama Purushan laughed while reclining on His soft bed of Aadhi Seshan and expressed His confidence that this kaimkaryam will be completed by the Acharyan soon . Lord RanganAthAn’s words never fail and lo and behold , we see today with wonder, the fruit of this magnificent Kaimkaryam by this AsAdhya AachAryan . Each time , we pass under this Gopuram to offer our PraNAmams to Sri RanganAyaki SamEtha Sri RanganAthan , we have to prostrate mentally to this great AchAryan , whose Vaibhavam is replete with such acts as asahAya Sooran.

HH Srimath Mukkur Azhagiyasingar’s Thirunakshatram is being celebrated grandly with Vidwat Sadas, Veda and Prabhanda parayanam at Sri Ahobila Mutt at Dasavathara Sannidhi at Srirangam for past few days, photos of which can be viewed from:
