Pavithrotsavam at Srirangam Sri Ranganathar Thirukkoil – Nel Alavu Kandarulal



Yesterday, September 21, 2013, Vijya Varusha Purattasi Revathi, on Day 7 of Pavithrotsavam at Srirangam, Namperumal along with Ubhaya Nachiyars had purappadu from moolasthanam at 7 pm. At 7:30, ‘Nel Alavu Kandarulal’ took place. Namperumal personally inspects the granary and witnesses the measurement of paddy that have accrued. The quantity of paddy also symbolises the prosperity of the kingdom. Namperumal with Ubhaya Nachiyars had purappadu to Thiru Kottaram, West of the Garuda Sannidhi. Here, the ‘Nel Alavu’ display event was enacted with representatives of Namperumal measuring and displaying to the Lord the the available paddy following which the representatives shouted out the next measurements thus informing Namperumal that all was well in the region. Thereafter, Namperumal made His way to the Northern Entrance of the temple and met with and had darshan of Ranganayaki Thayar, who presented the Lord with Thiruvanthikapu as a measure of protecting the Namperumal from Drishti. After this, Namperumal returned to moolasthanam at 9 pm.

The 9-day annual Pavithrotsavam for this Vijaya Varusham commenced on September 15, 2013.  The utsavam will conclude on September 23, 2012 with Poornahuti.
