By the benedictions of Srimath Azhagiyasingar the 7th Day celebrations of Thoopul Nigamantha Mahadesikan’s 746th Tirunakshatram went on well. Today October 13th 2013; Vijaya Purattasi Sravana Nannal was celebrated grandly at Ul Desikan Sannidhi at Srirangam. Sunday morning  at 7.00 am, Veda and Prabanda parayanam started at about 8.15 am. Swami Desikan was brought lovingly by Desika Bhakthas outside the sannidhi. While temple officials with police stood by the side, Desika bhakthas lead by Aradhakar Swami Mukkur Devadhi Rajan chanted Swami’s important stotras and prabhandhama begining with “Gnana Nanda Mayam Devam.” The pride  and devotion of the bhakthas was palpable in the fervour of the chanting in which everyone including ladies joined.  Like NamPerumal and Nammazhwar, Swami is Nam Desikan and we cannot do enough to repay our debts to Swami. No subject or aspect of Vishistadvatha has been left and every work explains the Prappathi Margam. Chamarams were waved continuously, archana was done with flowers and Karpura Harathi was offered at the end of each stotram. (the first and last verse of important stotras were said.) the devotees went inside. Swami Desikan was brought inside and placed on the dolai and the curtain was drawn for Thaligai offering. After this Vishesha(special) Satrumurai took place. Yajur Vedam and Sama Vedam chanting was done in sonorous  synchronisation and offered to Swami Desikan.  (Veda Vinnappam). Important slokams were chanted from Narayana upanishadh, Apath stamba dharmasutram, Srimadh Ramayanam, Sri Vishnu Puranam, Srimadh Bhaghavadh Githa, Srimadh Bhaghavatham, Ahobila Mahatmyam, Alavandar Stotra Ratnam, Sri Bashyam,Adhikarana Saaravali, Sri Geethartha Sangraham, Srimadh Rahasyatrayasaram, Sri Padhukasahasram, Yathiraja Sapthathi, Saptathi Rathnamalika Srimadh Adivan Sathakopa Vaibhava Chandrika and Sampradaya Prakasha.

This was followed by Thiruppavai, Periya Thirumozhi, Thirkurunthandakam, Thirunedunthandakam, Thiruvaymozhi, Bhaghavadh Vishayam, Dramidopanishad TatparyaRatnavali, Ramanuja Nuttranthathi. Addaikalapathu, Adhikara Sangraham, Prabhandha Saram, Pillaianthathi Adivan Sathakopa Adaikalapathu and Sri LakshmiNrisimhan Adaikalapathu (important slokams). This was followed by Arula padu and Sathrumurai. Theertham, Sri Sathari and prasada viniyogam (Cashew cake, Badusha, kesari and Pulihore). By about 10 am the celebrations were over and everyone left satisfied and proud to belong to Ramanuja  Desika Sampradhaya. Vedantha Desika! May Thee Live another 100 years !
