Pancharatra Srijayanthi was celebrated on 5/9/2015. At Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal temple, Kannan came in purappadu on Seshavahanam on 6/9/2015 in the morning along the veedhis of Kanchipuram to bless the residents and visitors to Kanchi. He came in pallaku uptil Swami Desikan sannidhi and moved on to Sesha vahanam. The rolled up coils on which Perumal stands is silver while the hoods are golden. He left with a ‘kullakal” and shook off the inalertness of everyone present. The notes of the divyaprabhandham and The Vedas started and as He made everyone residing in sannidhi street and the Mada veedhis happy as He stopped at their very doors to accept ‘patram, pushpam and phalam.’ Devotees stood in attention after making kolams and waited with their offerings, eager to see Him in all finery.
The shenbaka malas caught our attention and the light pink flowing silk garment and blue silk vastram on the top covered with ornaments was bewitching. Ofcourse He sported His trademark peacock feather along with gem studded hair ornaments. As we offered sesame oil and obtained oil used during His Tirumanjanam as prasadam mothers could be seen applying oil on their kids heads and on theirs. Anything Krishna touches is precious and unique. Soulabhyam Personified is Kannan who visited each of our homes to partake of our offerings of love and mingle with everyone. Having completed the rounds Kannan returned to the mandapam infront of swami Desikan sannidhi again with a ‘kullukal’ which everyone on the dais enjoyed specially the two kids sitting at His Feet.
