Today September 20, 2013; Vijaya Varusha Purattasi Uthiratadi, marks the Utthana Sancharam of HH 46th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Srivan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Maha Desikan after observing 60 days of Chaturmasyam vratham.
This morning at 5:30 am, Srimath Azhagiyasingar left His ashram and after yatra daanam walked about half a mile with face covered and without looking back. People were asked to move away, only the one holding theevatti went infront of HH. HH sat on a chair and waited for the Garuda Vahanam (His vehicle). Devotees stood on the sides and watched Sriman Narayana walking, for Acharya is none other than Sriman Narayana. Srimath Azhagiyasingar who observed Chathurmasyam in Dasavatharan Sannidhi left Srirangam and went to BHEL Sri Venkatachalapathy Perumal temple. Sri Malolan and parivaram followed. The daily pujas took place there and Theertham and Satari was finished by 10:30 am. Today is maasa thirunakshatram of HH 45th Srimath Azhagiyasingar.
Thereafter, Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Dolai Kannan and parivaram proceeded for Dolai at nearby Collector quarters (Trichy District Collector Smt Jayashree Muralidharan’s kudil). After Dolai, Srimath Azhagiyasingar returned to the temple. Thiruvaradhanam took place and Thadiyaradhanam was over by 2:30 pm. Uthanam Kuzhambu is famous and sought after. It is made with different kinds of vegetables.
