Durmukhi Avani Sravanam(August 17th 2016) Swami Desikan came in purappadu at about 9.00 a.m. to the Mada Veedhis of Varadaraja Perumal koil. Everyone was happy to see Kavitharikka Simham, Sarvathanthra Swatantran Thoopul Desikan blessing them at their doorstep. The old and the infirm were particularly grateful to have Desika Darsanam on the first day of Avani. So we will have another Sravanam at the end of Avani.
At Thoopul divyadesam Sravana Tirumanjanam took place at about 10.30 a.m. and fortunate were those who were present during this period to enjoy the Soundaryam of DeepaPrakasar with Shriya and Vasuda and Thoopul Pillai at Their Feet. As milk, curds, honey, raw coconut, turmeric and sandal paste offerings were made devotees had their eyes fixed on The Deities. After Tirumanjanam, Theertham, Srisathari and fruits were distributed. The curtains were drawn for alankaram after which sattrumurai took place followed by Perumal Theertham and Srisathari and prasada distribution.
At Sri Parakala Muth Thoopul special archanai was done on the occasion of Hayagriva Jayanthi for Hayagriva.
