Today September 9th, 2013; Vijaya Aavani Swathi is the 50th Day of HH 46th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Srivan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Maha Desikan’s Chathurmasya sankalpam. Abhigamana Aradhanai took place at the usual time. Mangala Harathi was followed by Theertham, Sri Sathari and Prasada Viniyogam (fruits and Dadhiannam). Several devotees had Samashrayanam and Bharanyasam done. It was nice listening to Srimath Azhagiyasingar iniating the men who had just taken samashrayanam into Srimadh Ramayanam, Bhaghavadh Githa etc. After Mantra upadesam (Tiru Ashtaksharam, Dwayam and Charama slokam and SriMantram) which is done for men and women, men are initiated into TiruAradhanamkramam and nithya parayana granthams. The beginning and last slokam is told by Srimath Azhagiyasingar and repeated by the men.

Yesterday, 8th of September 2013 Srimath Azhagiyasingar blessed the Tirumaligai of a shishya with “Ponnadi”. Pon means gold and Adi is steps. At the invitation of Shishyas Srimath Azhagiyasingar visits their house for Dolai or Ponnadi. This happens in the late afternoon after Ijyai and generally before Panaka Aradhanam. A house becomes a home when bhaghavathas visit them and purify the house. In the days of yore when Vaishvadevam was done in every household Sanyasis were allowed to take cooked prasadam from them as bhikshai. But that cannot happen any more. But they can come and purify with their presence. So the Sukruths had their Tirumaligai blessed by the coming of Srimadh Azhagiasingar that too during Chathurmasyam. Some of the photos taken during ponnadi can be viewed below
