Sri Udayavar Uthsavam 2015 .... Nummi Ramanusan !!

Hail Ramanuja ~ Iramanusan ennu sollumine !!

Today 15th Apr 2015 [Chithirai 2]  is Sadaya nakshathiram in the month of Chithirai and t he annual Uthsavam of Emperumanar (Udayavar / Ramanujar] commences today.
Bhagwad Ramanuja with his aesthetic beautiful interpretations occupies the central place.  Sri Ramanujar hailed as Udayavar, Emperumanar, Bashyakarar, Ilayazhwaar amongst other names was born in the year 1017 at Sri Perumpudur on ‘Thiruvathirai’ thirunakshathiram in the month of Chithirai. 

The grand sarrumurai ‘Chithiraiyil seiya Thiruvadirai’  [Thiruvadhirai Nakshathiram in the Tamil month of Chithirai] falls on Friday, 24th April 2015. 

The greatest reformer Sri  Ramanuja gave us many vedantic treatises:  Sri Bashyam, Vedarta sangraha, Vedanta deepa, Vedanta sara, the three Gadyams and more.  Blessed are the people, who regularly recite the 108 songs rendered by his disciple Thiruvarangathu Amuthanar known as “Ramanuja Noorranthathi”.

Due to balalayam, there is no purappadu at Thiruvallikkeni and thousands of devotees are missing the grand festival.  Here are a couple of photos of our Acharyar taken in 2008.
