Today October 11, 2013; Vijaya Purattasi Moolam, at 8 am, the eighth day celebrations of Srimath Adivan Sathakopa Yathindra Mahadesikan at Srirangam Sri Ahobila Mutt started with Veda parayanam and Iyarpa. It was the concluding day of Parayanam and Iyarpa Satrumurai was done. By 11 am, Theertham Sri Sathari and Prasada viniyogam (Dosai and sundal) and maryadhai for ubhayadhars were finished. We all know that at Sri Matham when Srimath Azhagiyasingar does Paduka Aradhanam there is only one paduka of Adivan Sathakopa Jeeyar. The other paduka is at Srirangam Sri Ahobila Mutt. Srimath Adivan Sathakopan’s association with Periya Perumal Periya Piratti and Srirangam was very close. The four important Divya Desams – Kanchipuram, Tirupathi, ThiruNarayanapuram and Srirangam have had the Thirupani of our Sathakopa Jeeyar.
Srimath Adivan Sathakopa Yathindra Mahadesikan’s Kainkaryams at Srirangam were numerous. According to Namperumal’s dictats, the rampart walls built by Thirumangai Azhwar were repaired. The Gopuram on the path to Dasavatharan sannidhi was built by Sathakopa Jeeyar and we can see Lakshmi Nrisimha and Sathakopa Jeeyar near the gopuram. Swami Desikan’s Sannidhi was established opposite to Thayar Sannidhi. Sri Ahobila Mutt nirmanam was done opposite vellai gopuram for conducting kalakshepams. Kaliyan Prathistai was done at Dasavatharan Sannidhi and Dasavatharan Perumal sannidhi was built. Srimath Adivan Sathakopa Yathindra Mahadesikan did aradhanam for Ul Desikan for sometime. HH also collected enough dravyam for maintaining the three sannidhis that is Dasavatharan Sannidhi, Ul Desikan Sannidhi and Utthira Veedhi Sri Ahobila Mutt. Appropriate Aradhakar swamis were appointed for the three sannidhis and the tradition continues till today. Sri Ahobila Mutt on Uthira Veedhi was where continuous Kalakshepams were given by Srimath Adivan Sathakopa Yathindra Mahadesikan. Each one of us in Srirangam and everywhere else should know the greatness of these three establishments and do whatever we can to uphold this Citadel of Vishistadvaitham.
The Brindavan Nirmana Kaingaryam of HH 45th Srimath Azhigiyasingar is progressing.
