Thiruvallikkeni Kodai Uthsavam - Day 7 (Sarrumurai) - Sri Parthasarathi

Today [14th July 2013] is the 7th and concluding day of Kodai Uthsavam for Sri Parthasarathi Swami at  Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam.

During Kodai Uthsavam, Sri Parthasarathi and Ubaya Nachimar have purappadu in separate kedayams… and today it was exceptionally grand… in every sense –  He adorned a predominantly ornate white dress ~ the floral alankaram was exceptional… first it was the most fragrant ‘magizham poo’ [Spanish chery; medlar / bullet wood] – then one made of mullai buds [jasmine];  then a beautiful garland made of – jasmine, yellow rose; read rose; and thavanam ~ in the posterior, He had Sevvarali [red arali – oleander]

As the Emperor, He had a wonderful Crown called ‘sigathadai’ – tightly woven around with reams of fresh  jasmine flowers with white robe and a kingly ornament atop that.  The parasols  [umbrellas] that accompanied were big magnificent ones [20 jon kudais]

There was the big contingent of Divya Prabandha goshti, today headed by  Thirukurungudi Srimath Sri Sri Paramahamsethyathi Perarulan Ramanuja Jeeyar who is visiting Thiruvallikkeni from Thirukurunkudi divyadesam.

Here are some photos taken by me  during the evening periya mada veethi purappadu.

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
