Boopathi Thirunal Utsava celebration took place in a grand manner at Srirangam Ranganathaswami Temple. On January 16th 2016, being Day 2 Utsavam, in the evening around 6.30 pm, Sri Namperumal had purappadu on Hamsa Vahanam. Hamsa pakshi is talked about as having the capacity to separate milk and water. This bird symbolises Acharyas who grasp the essence and teach their shisyas. During purappadu vahanams seem to take precedence of Perumal even though He travels on them. Todays Hamsam looked great in colourful tiered silk and the Purappadu was led by Hari the temple horse. The Divya prabhandham goshti and Veda Parayana goshti filled the air with their sonorous outpourings and NamPerumal looked at everyone around and assured them that He was there to Protect everyone.
