On December 21st 2015, being Day 1 Irapathu Utsavam, in the evening Sri Perumal along with His Consorts and Azhwars had Thiruveethi Purappadu followed by asthanam. Thousands of Bakthas participated and received the blessings of Divyadampathis and Azhwars. For Sri Vaishanavaites, the ultimate in life is attainment of moksha [salvation] by reaching Vaikuntam, the ultimate destination, the abode of Lord Himself. This is The place of no return and the human soul is free from the ills of the World and gets the supreme opportunity of nithya kainkaryam [daily service] to Lord.
