Share post:


Durmukhi Chitrai Asvini (6.5.2016) was a day of celebration for Kanchivasis. It being a Friday, Perundevi Thayar takes Her children to the ‘Dorai Thottam’  in the evening. When Amavsya, Hastham, ekadashi, Pournami or Sravanam falls on a Friday then Perumal after His purappadu on sannidhi street accompanies Thayar to the ‘Thottam’. 6th May being Amavasyai Varadan and His Consorts had Tirumanjanam at ‘kanadi- arai mandapam’ in the morning.

In the evening after returning from His rounds of Sannidhi street He waited at the entrance of the Gopuram for Perundevi Thayar. Thayar dressed in bright yellow silk with green border and a long ornamented braid came and joined Him. Together They wet to the mandapam in the garden accompanied and followed by mulitudes of devotees. Perumal Theertham, Srisathari and prasadams were distributed to the huge gathering. Then ‘The Duo’ stopped to bless Nammazhwar, Manavalamanigal and Bhaghavadh Bashyakarar and the constellation of Azhwars before turning the corner of Swami Desikan sannidhi. Every purappadu starts with maryadhai for Swami Desikan. After ‘pathi-ulathal’ there was ‘harathi’ at Tondaradipodi. Perumal returned to Atthigiri and Thayar after oonjal returned to Her sannidhi. Next Friday is ‘kadai vellikizhamai’. This is a beautiful utsavam which should not be missed.
