2/9/2015 was the fifth day of Pavitrotsavam at Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal temple. In the morning devotees had darshan of Perumal and ubhayanacimars adorned with pavitra malas at the Tirumanjana mandapam. The swamis chanting vedas made one offer prostrations while the aradhakar swamis performing the homam in the hot summer morning reminded us of those rishis who in the past have done penance surrounded by fire. It is indeed a holy sight to behold and all one can do is do namaskarams.
In the evening the purappadu started at 5.30 p.m. and proceeded on sannidhi veedhi , stopped at Tiruvadi koil to bless Anjaneya swami and to listen to The Samskrita and Dravida vedams before returning to aasthanam. Evening Veda parayanam and yaagam took place with Perumal and ubhayanachimars witnessing both, stationed in kili mandapam .
