  1. Nice write-up about the Tamil Thula month. I would only like to add that in Srirangam Ranganathar Temple, during this Thula month, Moolavar Periya Perumaal, Utsavar Namperumal and Sri Ranganayaki Thaayaar are adorned with the Saaligrama Maalai beautifully. Further during the Thirumanjanam of Namperumal, Gold vessels are used in this Thula month.

  2. Swamin is correct.Devotees visitikng SriRangam please look at the Salagrama mala worn by Periya Perumal, NamPerumal and Ranganachiar.

  3. Swamy
    Many thanks for all the information that is being shared in the site. Ever since I read this article, I was very eager to have snanam in cauvery river but then I know I could make it owing to many reasons. But Lord Ranganatha understood my intentions and in some unforseen circumstances I happened to visit Tiruchy and took snanam in cauvery river. I also had a woderfull darshanam of Namperumal, thayar, swamy Ramanuja, Swamy desikan and also visited the dashavatharam sannidhi and brindavanams of srimath azhagiyasingars. Thanks a lot again for posting these articles.
