As part of the ongoing Thirunakshatra Utsavam of Srimath Adivan Sathakopan Yathindra Maha Desikan at Triplicane Sri Ahobila Mutt, today (October 3, 2013) was Day 3 of the utsavam. The utsavam commenced on October 1, 2013 and will carry on for 10 days till October 10, 2013.
Today morning, Thiruvaradhanam took place at the usual time. At 3 pm, there was thirumanjanam for Srimath Adivan Sathakopan followed by parayanam of Moondram Thirvandhadhi, Thiruvaimozhi and Amruthaswadhini. Simultaneously, Veda parayanam (Yajusham and Saamam) took place. At 6 pm, pathi ulathal for the Acharyan took place and the same will continue on all the remaining days of the utsavam. (There was no pathi ulathal yesterday due to Pradhosham.) The pathi ulathal was followed by Thiruvaradhanam, Satrumurai and Prasada viniyogam (Sundal and Morekali). Kamasikastakam and Goda Stuthi was recited during viniyoga ghosti as today was Pooram.
