Perunkarunai, a village in Ramanathapuram District of Tamilnadu is the Avathara sthalam of Selva Nambi, the Vaishnavite Acharya, who helped Sri Periyazhwar to establish Sri Narayana Parathvam at Pandian sabhai and also the preceptor of the Pandya King Srimaran Srivallabhan. Selva Nambi recited the Bhagavatha Purana to the king Vikrama Pandiya and concluded that those who listen to this Purana will be saved from all evils and “That this dharma should be understood by everyone in the future”. Having listened to this recital, the king was blessed with a son Sri Vallabhan (who was known as Vallabha deva). Delighted king built the Varadaraja Perumal temple in Perunkarunai. He also donated several villages for the maintenance and upkeep of the temple and the festivities at the temple.
With the blessings of the Dhivya Dhampathis and swami Emperumanar, the Pavithrostavam of Perunkarunai temple (Sri Selva Nambi Sannidhi) is planned between 20th of October and 23rd of October 2016. Invitation is attached.
Since there is minimal support from the Samasthanam we seek help of generous devotees in conducting the festivities in the temple. The following are the expenses estimated for which contributions are invited. We request devotees to help and be the best to obtain the blessings of Perumal and Thayar
