Yesterday, Jaya, Aippasi Hastham( 22.10.2014) all of us had Ganga snanam not by going to the Ganges but by Ganga entering and purifying all waters in Brahmamuhurtham ( 4.00 A.M. is known as Brahma Muhurtham) on Narakachathurdasi. Thanks to Narakasura we enjoy the festival of lights by wearing new clothes, bursting crackers and eating as much sweets and savouries as we can. This is the time of giving and remembering to thank people who help us like the watchman, the milkman, the sweeper, the maidservants among others. After Ganga snanam devotees in their Diwali best thronged temples and visited elders to seek blessings.
At Dasavatharan Sannidhi Tirumanjanam was performed to all the ten deities as also to Lakshmi Narasimha'(Moolavar and Utsavar) and Lakshmi Narayana, utsavar as also to Senai Mudaliar. As it was Hastham there was Tirumanjanam done for Mukkur Srimadh Azhaghiasingar at Azhaghiasingar’s Brindavanam. Lot of devotees had the darshana soubhaghyam of the Dasavathara Perumals and also three Srimadh Azhaghiasingars namely 41st, 44th and 45th at their Brindavanams .By the time Satrumurai and prasada distribution (Diwali lehyam, Kesari and Badhusha) was over it was past 11.30 A.M.
