The 637th Tirunakshatram of Adivan Sathakopan swami was celebrated with devotion from October 1st 2016 – October 9th 2016 at Srirangam Sri Ahobila Muth. The 4000 pasurams were recited in the afternoons on Day-1,2 ,3 and 4 and in the mornings from Day-5 as Swami Desikan’s tirunakshatram parayanam commenced from 5/10/2016. Desika prabhandham anusandhanam was also done. On 6/10/2016 there was ‘snapana-tirumanjanam’ in the evening.
7/10/2016 was ‘Tirukettai’ the avathara dinam of our very first Srimadh Azhaghiasingar whose vision has made Sri Ahobila Muth what it is today. It is to Adivan Sathakopan Jeer swami that we owe the presence of Dasavathara sannidhi and Ul-Desikan sannidhi. His contributions are mind boggling and all we can do is bend our heads in supplication and offer our dandavath pranams. On 7/10 Purappadu took place for Swami who did the rounds of the veedhis and visited Dasavathara sannidhi before returning to Sri Ahobila Muth where vishesa sattrumurai took place.
