Thiru Mayilai Sri Adhi Kesava Perumal Swarna Garuda Vahanam 2015

Today [7th April 2015]  is day 3 of the Brahmothsavam of Sri Mayooravalli sametha Sri Adhi Kesava Perumal.  This morning Sri Kesava Perumal had purappadu in Garuda vahanam. Hundreds of people waited to have the glimpse of Lord on Garuda at the Gopura vassal, as He came out of the Temple.  It is brand new Golden Garuda vahanam [Swarna Garuda vaganam], made for the Lord by the Trustees under Sri NC Sridhar.

Garuda was born to Sage Kashyapa and Vinathai. Garuda is depicted as having the golden body of a strong person, white face, powerful wings,  prominent beak, wears a crown – massive, strong – and more than anything else – ever devoted to Sriman Narayanan, carrying Him on his shoulders all the time. His devotion and being close to Emperuman all the time – Garuda, is admired as ‘Periya Thiruvadi’.

At Mylapore, Sri Peyalwar too accompanied the Perumal.  Here are some photos taken this morning.
