Pavithrotsavam At Vaduvur Sri Kothandaramaswamy Temple


Pavithrotsavam is a well prescribed ritual, where the archaka prays for forgiveness for all lapses–conscious or otherwise– in the daily worship of the Lord. Pavithrotsavam was celebrated in a grand manner at Sri Kothandaramaswamy Temple, Vaduvur. On this occasion, Homam was conducted at the yaga sala for 7 days with 60 aradhanam per day on first 6 days and 5 aradhanam on 7th day to mark 365 days. On November 26th 2015, the last day of Pavithrotsavam was performed which includes Theerthavari and satrumurai with arulicheyal and Parayana Ghosti. Many Bakthas participated and received the blessings of Divyadampathis.

Annual Pavitrotsavams are purificatory rituals recommended by Aagamas to expiate the commissions and the omissions associated with daily worship (Aaraadhanam) of the Lord at His consecrated temples.   Lapses in the performance of the Aaraadhanam are recognized and a detailed ceremony consisting of homam in front of the Utsava Moorty at a specailly constructed yaaga saala. The decoration of all the Moortys of the temple with specially prepared necklaces made of dyed cotton thread is carried out and the day concludes with a pornahoothi. This is an elaborate utsavam , which can be conducted from 3-10 days depending on the temple tradition. The time for the performance of the Pavitrotsavam is different from temple to temple.
