In the morning- Thirumanjanam was performed for Sri Perundevi Thayar, Sri Abhishta Varadaraja Perumal, Swami Desikan and Adhivan Satakopa Yatindra Mahadesikan, followed by Sathumarai in morning. Astikas brought holywater from Ayyan Kulam for Thirumanjanam. Thirumanjanam was followed by swami Desikan- kattiyam sevai and sahasradharai.
Swami Desikan did Mangalasasanam for Sri Abhista Varadharaja perumal and Thayar in Swami Desikan Sannidhi. Felicitation was performed for swami Desikan during Mangalasasanam.
Swami Desikan was mounted on Simha Vahanam and Perumal adorned Garuda Vahanam during Mangalasasanam.
The special feature of this utsavam is, as if, Sri Adhivan Satakopa Yathindriya Maha Desikan was praising Swami desikan during mangalasasanam (swami Desikanai vazhi Anupudhal). Archakas performed this in a wonderful manner.
