Sri Thelliya Singar Brahmothsavam - Porvai Kalaithal - day 9 - 2014

Thiruvallikkeni Brahmothsavam -    day 9 Morning - Porvai Kalaithal

14th July 2014 is the 9th day of Sri Azhagiya Singar Brahmothsavam – Theerthavari.  This morning Sri Azhagiya Singar had purappadu in “Aaal mael pallakku” – a palanquin with four men holding the pallakku on their shoulders. 

The day’s events are sequel to that of the previous day -  i.e., ‘Thirumangai Mannan Vaibhavam’; Emperuman turning Kaliyan into his astute devotee teaching him the  ‘ashtakshara mantra’.... In symbolizing search of lost ring, Perumal has Himself covered with ‘sheets’ (போர்வைகள்) and comes incognito  - the deed of His searching is celebrated at the same place where He gave the Ultimate advice to Thirumangai Mannan.  With every circling round, one porvai is removed and aarthi performed.

The conflict is not that of mortals…it is divine… ‘pranaya kalaham’ arising out of the celestial bonds between ‘Thayar and Perumal’….  In the words of Andal ~  *ஊடல் கூடலுணர்தல் புணர்தலை*  காலை புறப்பாட்டின் போது எடுக்கப்பட்ட சில புகைப்படங்கள் இங்கே :
