Yesterday, 6 February,2014,Vijaya Thai Ashwini, After morning purappadu on Simha vahanam NamPerumal blessed devotees in Karuthurai mandapam. This mandapam is where Thayar and Perumal share views illustrating how important it is for husband and wife to discuss and share matters. In the evening NamPerumal came on Yali vahanam.
Yali is an interesting animal which is said to reside in devalokam. It has the face of a lion, the trunk of an elephant and tail of a serpent and is said to have great strength. Yali motif is found in temple carvings and at the entrance of houses. It is said to ward off negative energies. Many devotees had the fortune of offering prostrations to The Lord who is Strength Personified yet is accessible to us and can be approached by all. Lot of Astikas took part in the evening purappadu and had blessings of Namperumal
