Thoopul-Swami-Desikan-Aani-Sravanam

Durmukhi Aani Sravanam(June 24th 2016) Swami Desikan came in purappadu to the Madaveedhis of VaradarajaPerumal koil from Thoopul. Every Sravanam Swami Desikan comes usually in the morning at about 8.30 a.m. blessing the denizens of Vishnu Kanchi. He stops infront of Varadaraja Perumal’s ‘gopura vaasal’ before turning left onto West Mada veedhi then turned right on North mada veedhi and then to East mada veedhi, south maada veedhi, aanai katti street and then back to Thoopul along Tirukacchi nambi street. The residents get thrilled on seeing Swami at their doorstep and realise that all they can do in return is offer dandavath pranamams. However long one gazes at swami’s Tirumeni it does not seem enough.

At about 10.30 a.m. Tirumanjanam took place for Deepaprakasar with Shriya and Vasudha, Maragathavalli Thayar (because it was a Friday) Lakshmi Hayagreevar and Swami Desikan. It was a visual treat to witness the milk, curds, honey, raw-coconut water, sandal paste and turmeric tirumanjanam. As the Tulasi garlands adorned the Divya Dampathis and Swami Desikan(the unparalleled guru) everyone present realized their soubhaghyam(good fortune) to be present in Thoopul that day. Aural treat was provided by the sonorous notes of The Vedas and the beautiful rendering of the Tirumanjana kattiyam. Theertham and Srisathari was given to everyone present. SwamiDesikan’s Tirumeni is what adiyal would like to visualize on the final journey to Srivaikuntam. It used to be Krishna before setting eyes on Thoopul Kulamani. The screen was then drawn for alamkaram.

After alamkaram Swami adorned his new ‘abharanam’-the pillaianthathi garland offered by Sri SriKrishna DesikaYatiJeer of Pomona (New York) Sri Ranganatha temple which follows Sri Ramanuja Sampradhaya as propounded by Swami Desikan and followed by the jeers of Sri Ahobila Muth. The golden plate was used for offering Tulasi and camphor. Swami Desikan’s accepting of these offerings is really satisfying. After Sattrumurai Perumal Theertham. srisathari and a variety of good quality prasadams were distributed to everyone present. Devotees planning a visit to Kanchi should visit Thoopul specially if it happens to be Sravanam.
