Thiruvallikkeni Sri Manavala Mamunigal ~ Sri Varadharajar purappadu - day 4

The annual 10 day Uthasavam of Sri Manavala Mamunigal is being celebrated very grandly in Thiruvallikkeni and many other divyadesams.

கற்றோர்கள் தாமுகப்பர் கல்விதன்னில் ஆசையுள்ளோர்*
பெற்றோமென உகந்து பின்பு கற்பர்* மற்றோர்கள்
மாச்சரியத்தால் இகழில் வந்ததென் நெஞ்சே * இகழ்கை
ஆச்சர்யமோ தானவர்க்கு !

The above are the immortal words of Mamunigal in His ‘Upadesa Rathinamalai’.. literally a  garland consisting of Upadesam [advices] worth more than gems.  Here Swami Manavala Mamunigal also known as ‘Ramyaja Mathru Yogi’  says :

those  persons who are extremely well learned and who know the real meaning and importance of ancient  scriptures  would for sure acknowledge the greatness of these instructions; those who pursue relentlessly to learn and acquire true knowledge will be glad to receive them………. and practice them too.   Alas, in the World there would also be people who would fit into neither of these groups, but would try to ridicule and demean without having the standard to analyse ~ one should only understand that it is their nature to ridicule and their acts are not worthy of notice at all. 

Today, 1st Nov 2013, the eve of Deepavali is ‘Hastham’ Nakshathiram and on the occasion there was the grand periya mada veethi purappaudu in Thiruvallikkeni of Swami Manavala Mamunigal with Lord Varadharajar, which was unique and grand.
Here are a couple of photos taken during today’s purappadu
