Kanchi Varadaraja Perumal Temple Panguni Thiruvadhirai Swami Ramanuja Masa Thirunakshatram



17/03/2015, Thursday was Panguni Tiruvadhirai. In just a month we will be celebrating the 999th Tirunakshatram of the Acharya without a parallel on Chitra Tiruvadhirai. Sriperumpudur is the place chosen by Ramanucharya for avatharam. But Kanchi and Varadan were His favourites. He is generally housed in sannidhis next to Varadaraja perumal in temples like Srirangam.

Devotees visiting Kanchipuram on a Tiruvadhirai day should not miss the Tirumanjanam which takes places at about 9.00a.m. If they happen to visit the temple in the evening they should attend the aradhana and goshti.

The Tirumanjanam with milk, curds, honey and sandal paste was a visual delight and one experienced the soundaryam of the divyamangala Tirumeni. The Tulasigarland, rosegarland and champaka garlands were a beauty to behold. The kattiyam chanting was a treat to the ears. After alamkaram the thick white and red garland(jasmines and vrukhshi), jasmine garland and maghiyam garland (vakula flowers) adorned acharya who wore an orange silk with violet jari border blessing everyone with His karunakataksham.

The following are the photos taken during the occasion:
