Kanchi Devaperumal Avani Hastham PurappaduOn August 29, 2014; Jaya Varusha Avani Hastham, masa thirunakshatram of Sri Devaperumal was celebrated grandly at Kanchipuram Perumal Koil. Sri Perarulalan alongwith His Ubhaya Nachiyars and Sri Perundevi Thayar had purappadu in the evening. Every Tamil Month Hastham Purappadu Happens for Devaperumal at Kanchipuram. Several bhaktas participated in the purappadu and had the blessings of the DivyaDampathis.

Its also the day It was on Aavani Hastam the Thaniyans “rAmAnuja dhayApAthram jnAna vairAgya bhooshaNam |srImath vEnkatanAthAryam vandhE vEdhAntha dEsikam ||”, on Swami Desikan and “shrImallakshmana yogIndra …” on Sri Nayanaracharya, were sung by Sri Brahmatantra Swatantra Parakala Jeeyar Swami (1st Jeeyar of parakala mutt), who was Swamy Desikan’s direct and prime disciple. These thaniyans were composed and sung at Thirunarayanapuram by Sri Brahmatantra Swatantrar before beginning Bhagavad vishaya kAlakshepam at the feet of Swamy Nayanaracharya.

Swami Desikan studied all the shastras from his maternal uncle Sri Athreya Ramanuja. Swami Desikan was also the direct recipient of the choicest anugrahams of Ramanuja at Thirunarayanapuram. Incidentally both Athreya Ramanuja and Bhagavad Ramanuja share the same thirunakshatram, that being Chittirai ThiruvAdirai. May be these are some of the insights that prompted Parakala Jeeyar to use the most wonderful sobriquet “rAmAnuja dayApAtram” when singing the glories of Swami Desikan. Poorvacharyas have elaborately commented on these taniyans that are rich with esoterical meanings.
