Sri Namperumal Kudhirai vahanamYesterday,1 February,2015, Jaya Varusha  Thai Tiruvadhirai, is the day 8 of Boopathi Thirunal Utsavam at Srirangam, In the  evening around 6.30p.m NamPerumal came in Kudhirai vahanam. The kudhirai vahanam of gold  invites attention for its beauty and majesty. NamPerumal was appropriately dressed in riding clothes with full sleeves of green velvet holding the reins tightly. Layers of multicoloured silk with contrast borders added to the granduer. At the back was a quiver filled with arrows and a golden shield  to boot. All the doors in the veedhis were open to get His kataksham and offerings were made on the way. But the highlight was the Kona Vayalli outside Ranga Ranga Gopuram.

Packed with devotees all around NamPerumal’s Vayalli started to the beating of drums in a particular way. The co-ordination and manouvering of the Sripadamthangis was fantastic. The expertise with which Vayalli was done was great. It seemed as if NamPerumal does this to give darshan to each devotee present, especially during konal vayali whence so many turns are done  .At the end of it there was thunderous applause and shouts of SriRanga! Sri Ranga!  NamPerumal enters into each sriman thangi and makes this happen. Then NamPerumal stands and accepts the offerings and after that goes into the Tiruvendhikaapu mandapam for Tiruvehndikaapu before returning to Kanadi arai. Lot of Srivaishnavas took part in the Prabhandam and Veda parayana Goshti. Many Astikas participated in the purappadu and had the blessings of Sri Namperumal.

These are some of the photos taken during the occasion…
