Masi Magam 2015 ~ Thirumayilai Adhi Kesava Perumal Garuda vahanam

Today 5th March 2015 is ‘Pournami’ in the month of Masi ~ the holy occasion of Masi Magam whence the sea and water bodies are consecrated with the divine intervention of deities.  On Masi Magam day, at various places, Gods visit waterbodies – at Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam, there was no purappadu due to Balalayam.

Bathing in sea on these days is considered sacred ~ necessarily after having a purificatory bath at home and then at Sea.  Sri Adhi Kesava Perumal Devasthanam popularly  ‘Kesava Perumal Kovil’ is near Mylai Kapaleeswarar Temple. The temple tank is Chandra pushkarini (sarva theertham) popularly known as Chithirai kulam.  The presiding deity here is Sri Adhi Kesava Perumal and thayar is Mayuravalli – the place itself was historically known as ‘Mayurapuri’. The temple is quite ancient and dates back to centuries. During Ekkattu Thangal Purappadu, Sri Parthasarathi Perumal visits this Temple and has mandagapadi here.

This morning Kesava Perumal on Garuda Vahanam visited the Vanga Kadal [shores of Bay Bengal] near Pattinapakkam Srinivasapuram.  Perumal from the nearby Sri Vedanta Desikar  DEvasthanam also visited the same place. Hundreds of devotees accompanied Perumal and had bath in the sea.   Here are some photos taken this morning.
