Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal Temple Manmadha Varusha Pavithrotsavam: Day 6

Kanchi Devaperumal Pavithrotsavam day 3On, 3rd September 2015,  The Pavithrotsavam started at 9.30 a.m. and devotees coming on a pilgrimage felt happy at their bhagyam in seeing Perumal with ubhaya nachimars at the Tirumanjana mandpam listening to the chanting of The Vedas. Getting Perumal theertham and Srisathari was another blessing. Added to this plenty of Perumal prasadam was distributed. Perumal takes care of His devotees like a mother. After seeing the yaagam going on at the yaagasala they procceeded to have darshan of Loka matha Perundevi Thayar and Perarulalan and the lizards that went to moksham.

In the evening at about 5.30  devotees waited infront of Tirumanjanamandapam  to have darshan of Perumal with ubhaya nachimars .As soon as the air instrument made of brass called Thiruchchinnam was blown and udal(a kind of drum) was sounded,the  curtain opened. Even those who have been having His darshan daily felt elated as if they were seeing Him for the first time. The drummers stationed near swami Desikan sannidhi kept the beats at regular intervals. As Perumal descended the steps and ascended steps at kili mandapam devotees ran along with Him. He crossed the yaaga shala and descended steps to stop at three places in the Alavandar prakaram- at ThiruAnanthazhwar sannidhi where He accepted upaharams, at Tirumadapalli and at Ugranam(storeroom). The Madapalli occupies an important place in our sampradhayam and is presided over by Madapalli nachiyar who makes sure that appropriate ( Swami Desikan calls our sampradhaya as mahanasa sampradhayam) , first quality prasadams are prepared for Devadhirajan and His devotees. Ugranam is where grains and grocery are stored and  Perumal with ubhayanachimars check whether the granaries are full. After this They emerge out to the accompaniment of instrumental music, Vedas and Tamil Vedas on the famous sannidhi street blessing devotees. After returning the evening yaagam started to the accompaniment of Vedas and the divya kataksham of Perumal and ubhaya nachimars stationed at kili mandapam. The evening utsavam got over by 9.30 p.m.
