Today September 8th, 2013; Vijaya Aavani Chitrai is the 49th Day of HH 46th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Srivan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Maha Desikan’s Chathurmasya sankalpam. The Mangala Harathi was followed by Perumal Theertham, SriSathari and Prasadha (Dadhiannam and pulikachal and fruits) viniyogam were over by 8.45am. People were given Mantrakshatai and Samashrayam was done afterwards. There were many devotees seeking Samashrayanam and Bharanyasam today.
Yesterday, Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Sokkathur Swami, Mannargudi Swami, SriKaryam swami, spoke about their association with Mukkur Srimath Azhagiyasingar. Srimath Azhagiyasingar said that Mukkur Srimath Azhagiyasingar was the samashrayana, Bharanyasa and Kalakshepa Acharyan in Poorvashramam (Such a shisyan is called Pradhana shishyan). Villivallam Srimath Azhagiyasingar initiated Sanyasam. Srimath Azhagiasingar spoke of Mukkur Srimadh Azhagiasingar’s Daya,Dhairyam and Audaryagunams.HH wanted Tirunakshatram to be celebrated appropriately and grandly. Sokkathur swami talked about how he became the dayapatram of Mukkur Srimath Azhagiyasingar and got Prapatthi done. Swami had to explain the differences between Nyasam, Bharanyasam and Adrishtartham. Only after the testing Bharanyasam was done. Swami accounts his success to the kataksham of Mukkur Azhagiyasingar.
Mannargudi Swami spoke of how he was made to wait for three days before getting Prappathi done. Swami was all ready and had done all the prerequisites but was asked to come the following day. The following day a group of five devotees got their Prappathi done but Swami was asked to come the next day. Swami was disappointed but not angry. The following day Srimath Azhagiyasingar gave Him Sharanagathi exclusively as he was the only seeker that day. Srimath Azhagiyasingar’s anugraham and prediction that he would be a Mahavidvan has come true.
Srikaryam swami Devanarvilagam Paruttipattu Vangeepuram, Dr.S.Padmanabhacharyar recalled the day and date of his Atmavivaham and narrated how he got to do Prappathi. Some of swami’s family members were getting ready to take prapatthi when Mukkur Srimadh Azhagiasingar called swami and asked him to come for Bharanyasam, Swami says his success is due to Acharya Kataksham. Imagine reaching the same place as these mahans. Yes this will be our destination too when we get Bharyasam done. So do not postpone Prapatthi.
