On the fourth day morning Goddess Sri Padmavàthi Devi showered Her divine blessings atop Kalpavriksha vahanam as a part of the ongoing annual karthika brahmotsavams in Tiruchanoor. Meanwhile Kalpavriksha is considered to be the divine Tree emerged out of Meghamadhanam of milk ocean along with Goddess Lakshmi Devi and hence is considered as the sibling of the goddess.
As a part of the ongoing annual Karthika Brahmotsavams, on the serene evening of Friday, Goddess Sri Padmavathi Devi dressed up as Lord Sri Rama with bow and arrow in Her hand, mounted on the mighty Hanumantha Vahana blessed Her devotees at Tiruchanoor. Hanuman stands tall as a right example of Dasyam means surrendering totally to His master or Lord. By riding on this vahanam, the Goddess taught her devotees that “Dasya means not to serve the Lord directly, but to serve those who serve Him. Our aspiration should rather be to serve the servants of the servants of the servants of the Lord, stretching our humility as far as our realizations will allow.
A true servant of God finds joy in serving the servants of God. So great is the pleasure found in the effort and sacrifice of such service. Thousands of devotees converged to catch the glimpse of Goddess in Lord Rama Avatara on the mighty Hanumantha Vahana.
