Srirangam Dasavathara Sannadhi Aadi velli dolotsava Sevai2015-1 Dolotsavam at Dasavatharan Sannidhi

 At Srirangam Dasavatharan Sannidhi, dolotsavam is performed for the utsavamurthis Lakshmi Narayanan and Lakshminrisimhan during Thai(January-15th-February15th) and Aadi (July15th-August15th) Fridays. The swing festival starts at about 6.00p.m. and concludes by 8.00pm. Lot of devotees participate and local artistes offer their musical offerings to the Dasavatharamurthis at the spot sanctified by so many Srimadh Azhagiyasingars. This Aadi 5 Fridays were celebrated. The last Aadi Velli being 14/8/2015

Dolotsavams are supposed to be done every evening for LakshmiNarayana. If this is not possible it should be done on special days like SriNrisimha Jayanthi, SriRamanavami and Srijayanthi. Otherwise the months of Aadi and Thai are auspicious.

The four legs of the swing represent the four Vedas and are to be decorated with chains of gold, pearls and precious gems and different perfumed flowers. Beautiful silk cloths are to be laid on the swing supported by velvet bolsters embedded with shankhu/chakram and tiruman. Chamarams and hand fans are offered to the divyadampathis as also sandal paste, dhoopam, deepam and different kinds of prasadams. The atmosphere is one  of happiness and relaxation. Songs, slokams, instrumental music are offered to our Divine Parents who enjoy our prattle even if we make mistakes.

All 33 cores of devathas take residence on the swing to pray to the divyadampathis.

Having darshan of Lakshmi and Narayana on the dolai destroys papams like brahmahathi. Having darshan of Them is  equivalent to taking bath in all holy rivers and performing several yagyams.

One who has the fortune of prostrating infront of LakshmiNarayana in Dolai in punyakshetrams like Srirangam will get all his papams destroyed.

One who performs Dolotsavam for Lakshmi Narayana will earn merit enough to ensure that generations to come will tread the path to moksham and cut the vicious cycle of births and deaths.
