Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal Koil Brahmotsavam: Hanumantha Vahanam


Hanumantha vahanam kanchi brahmotsavam

Yesterday, May 14, 2014; Jaya Varusha Chitra Swathi, as a part of the ongoing Brahmotsavam at Sri Varadaraja Perumal Thirukkoil, Kanchipuram, In the morning  the famous Garuda Sevai took place in very grand manner and in the evening Perumal Purappadu took place in Hanumantha Vahanam.

Hanuman being Siriya thiruvadi has been waiting for Periya thiruvadi to finish his task and would immediately grab his chance to bring Varadar to our doorsteps. The take away from Hanuman is not just steadfast service to the Lord but Only to his Lord, Lord Rama. At the end of Ramaavataram when Lord Rama was sending all present across River Sarayu to proceed towards Sri Vaikuntam, he also wanted Hanuman to come along. Hanuman enquired if he could be with Lord Rama in Sri Vaikuntam, Lord Rama answered in negative and told him he would have to be with Varadar in Sri Vaikuntam. Hanuman felt dejected and decided to stay back in boolokam as Lord Rama was his all in all.

The temptation of the wonderful nectar, Varadar, is so irresistible that tomorrow our Hanuman would decide to have a mouthful and is also lovingly sharing it with all of us.
During the purappadu our Perumal would adore muttu toppa haaram. Divya prabhandam ghosti would recite Periyazvar moonraampaththu during thepurappadu. The following pasuram is so apt for the purappadu.
