Thiruvallikkeni - Iraapathu Uthsavam 3 -(2015) Hanumath Jayanthi

Thiruvallikkeni - Iraapathu Uthsavam 3  
திருவல்லிக்கேணி இராப்பத்து  உத்சவம்  (3)

The festivity of Adhyayana Uthsavam is enthralling and today is day 3 of  Irapathu Uthsavam.  Today, there was heavy gathering of devotees.  During Irapathu, everyday   at around 0545 pm,  Sri Parthasarathi Perumal reaches the Paramapada vasal, where Nammalwar waits for the doors to open and have darshan of Lord coming through the entrance. Devotees throng to have darshan of this significant  event.

Today is more special – ‘Hanumath Jayanthi’ too .  The Greatest of Ithihasa purana ‘Sri Ramayanam’  is the undiluted history of the Greatest Person who descended on this Universe, on the banks of river Sarayu, in a prosperous country called ‘Koshala’.   To this Master Master, totally committed thinking of His welfare alone – unassuming, yet capable of telling the right things at the right moment –is Pavana Puthra Hanuman – Aanjaneya, who is called ‘siriya thiruvadi’ – who carried Rama on his shoulders during the war in which the demon was killed.   In Periyazhwar Thirumozhi, in the hymns celebrating the power of Govardhana Giri, Azhwar says  that in the Greatly reverred hill, female monkeys in singing lullabies to their kids, mention the heroic deeds of Hanuman, whose valour completely destroyed the city of demons – the  Lanka.

At Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam,   right in front of the Sri Ramar Sannathi, Sri Aanjaneya resides. Once in a year, there will be purappadu for this Utsavamurthy and  today it was Grand Purappadu for  Sri Parthasarathi Perumal with   Sri Hanumar and Swami Nammalwar.  According to the legend,  Lord Hanuman is present wherever the story of Lord Rama  is recited.  Let us prostrate  at the feet of  Jai Hanuman ~  here are some photos of the purappadu.
