On May 30,2014 Vaikasi Masa Jaya Mrugaseerusham, Mylapore Sri vedantha Desikar Devasthanam Sri Alarmelmanga sametha Sri Srinivasa Perumal temple , Angurarpanam and Vishwak Senar purappadu took place in grand manner. Brahmotsavam commences on 31 May and ends on 9 May 2014. All astikas are invited to participate in the brahmotsavam.
Ankurar Panam, a ritual marking the commencement of the ten-day annual Brahmotsavams. Ankurarpanam means ‘starting’ and also ‘foundation’. The ritual thus signifies that it is preparing the ground for the nine-day rituals of Srivari Brahmotsavams. ‘Ankuram’ means seed and ‘Arpana’ means giving, here it means sowing. In the sacred ritual ‘nava dhanyams’, nine varieties of food grains, representing nine-days are sown in the earth for germination. Priests, after taking permission from the Lord, go in a procession to the Alwar Gardens located in the ‘Nairuti’ (south-west) direction of the temple for securing ‘putta mannu’ (soft mud of an ant hill) and the event is called ‘Mrutsangrahanam’. ‘Nava Dhanyams’ are sprinkled and milk and water are poured amid chanting of mantras.
Later, Vishwaksena, the General of Lord Sriman Narayana army, is ‘informed’, who then sets out of the temple in a grand procession to extend invitations to Gods, Goddesses, Yaksha, Gandharva, Kinnera, Kimpurusha, Naga, Apsaras and Manavas to attend the grand festival of Lord Srinivasa to be performed by Lord Brahma being invisible. Below are some of the pictures taken during the event.
