Sri Manavala Mamunigal Uthsavam day 1 - 2014

It has been raining in – people are happy due to host of reasons – the festivity of Deepavali is already felt – and sales are picking up in wet Chennai.

For us there is the best reason to feel happy – continued bliss – as the 10 day Uthsavam of our Acharyar commenced today [19th Oct 2014] at Thiruvallikkeni and all divyadesams  - it would conclude on Tuesday 28th Oct 2014(Aippasi 11)  being ‘Thirumoola Nakshathiram’ in the month of Aippasi – the birth star of Swami Manavala Mamunigal, the most reverred matchless Acharyar of our Srivaishnavaite philosophy, practiced by Thennacharya Srivaishnavas. 

Mamunigal is known as ‘Yathindra Pravanar’ arising out of his irresistible attachment to the lotus feet of Sri Ramanujar known as ‘Yatheendrar’.  Sri  Manavala Mamunigal is the incarnation of Adisesha.  He was born in Alwar Thirunagari, Tamilnadu in AD 1370.  At birth he was known as ‘Azhagiya Manavala Perumal Nayanaar’.  Later he was hailed in very many names such as ‘Yatheendra Pravanar’, Ramyajamathru, Saumyajamatru, Visada-Vak-Sikhamani , Varayogi, Varavaramuni and more…..

Here are some photos of day 1 – Sri Parthasarathi purappadu with our Acharyar.  Sri Parthasarathi was decorated with ‘Sengoal’ (செங்கோல்) reminiscing Namperumal

Adiyen Srinivasadhasan.
