Thiruvahindrapuram Swami Desikan Thirunakshatra Mahotavam: Day 4


Swami Desikan_Thiruvahindrapuram_21

As part of the ongoing Swami Desikan Purattasi Brahmotsavam at Thiruvahindrapuram Sri Devanathan Sannidhi, purappadu for Swami Desikan on Pinnakalai Vahanam and Chandra Prabhai took place today morning and evening respectively (October 7, 2013; Vijaya Varusha Purattasi Swathi). On the previous day, Swami Desikan had purappadu on Yali Vahanam yesterday evening (October 6, 2013).

Concurrently, the Navarathri Utsavam for Sri Devanathan Perumal and Sri Hemambhujavalli Thayar is taking place since October 5th, 2013. The highlight of these two Vaibhavams (Swamy Desikan Brahmotsavam and Navarathri) when they come together in a year is that Swami Desikan gets a special Magalasasana Mariyaadhai (Maalai worn by Sri Devanatha Swamy and His Sri Sataari Mariyaadhai) during Sri Devanatha Swamy’s stay at Sri Thayar Sannidhi for Navarathri Utsavam in the evening. This year Navarathri utsavam started on Day 2 of Swamy Desikan Brahmotsavam. Hence this special treat for Swamy Desikan till Purattasi Sravanam i.e.¬†Thirunakshathram day.
