Sesha Vahanam - Day 2 - Sri Parthasarathi Brahmothsavam 2016

Sesha Vahanam - Day 2 - Sri Parthasarathi  Brahmothsavam 2016

On 2nd day of Brahmothsavam at Thiruvallikkeni, it was Sesha vahanam for Sri Parthasarathi, in the morning.

சென்றால் குடையாம் இருந்தால் சிங்காசனமாம்,
நின்றால் மரவடியாம் நீள்கடலுள், - என்றும்
புணையாம் மணிவிளக்காம் பூம்பட்டாம் புல்கும்
அணையாம்திருமாற்கு அரவு         – Muthal Thiruvanthathi, Poigai Azhwaar. 

      Of those who render service to MahaVishnu, Ananthan – the AdiSesha serves Him in the best possible manner that one could visualize.  When Thirumal is moving, Thiruvananthazhwaan hoods him like a parasol,  when God sits, Seshan is  settee – the seat of comfort;  when Lord stands,  the snake serves Him as footwear ; in the Thiruparkadal where Lord reclines to take rest, he becomes the silken bed – he gleams with light and provides handrest too.   The serpentine Ananthazhwaan is ever at the service of the Lord in every possible manner. 

திருப்பாற்கடலில் பள்ளி கொள்ளும் பெருமானுக்கு 'சேஷசாயி' என அழகான திருநாமம்.அந்த அரவணையானின் பாதங்களை   தொழுது ஏத்துபவர்கள் என்று என்றும்குறைவிலர் !..  . Here is one of the verses of Boothathazhwar

பரிசு நறுமலரால் பாற்கடலான் பாதம்*,
புரிவார் புகப்பெறுவர் போலாம்* - புரிவார்கள்
தொல்லமரர் கேள்வித் துலங்கொளிசேர் தோற்றத்து*
நல்லமரர் கோமான் நகர்.  which would mean  :

those who are prostrate and worship with most fragrant flowers,  the Lotus feets of the Lord reclining in the Milky Ocean,  will get the benefit of reaching that great Emperuman residing in Paramapadam  ~ the feat that is available to those bright sacred souls of Nithya suris, which is not even available to those like Indira and other devas.

Here are some photos taken during the morning purappadu. 

Adiyen Srinivasadhasan.
