On, 13th February Maasi Revathi was Maasi masapirappu. At Varadaraja Perumal koil, Kanchi, Tirumanjanam took place for Perumal and Ubhaya Nachimars at ‘kanadi-arai mandapam’ in the morning at about 9.30 a.m.
In the evening purappadu took place on Sannidhi Street and after reaching Tiruvadi-koil Perumal returned to ‘kanadi-arai’. Whenever there is a purappadu the following day Perumal does not go back to Atthigiri malai but stays here. Since Surya-prabhai purappadu would take place the following day He stayed back here.
The vahana-mandapam is infront of Swami Desikan sannidhi and when we went for Perumal purappadu the suryaprabhai was waiting in readiness and the Veda parayana goshti were doing their evening recital. mEvery evening Veda Parayanam takes place at Swami Desikan sannidhi and then at Chakrathazhwar sannidhi. After Perumal purappadu was over the Veda parayana goshti left for Thoopul for Theppotsavam.
