Sri Ranganathar Theppam at Thiruvallikkeni 2016

மெய்யில் வாழ்க்கையை மெய்யெனக் கொள்ளும்*
இவ் வையந் தன்னொடும் கூடுவதில்லை யான்*
ஐயனே அரங்கா என்றழைக்கின்றேன்*
மையல் கொண்டொழிந்தேனென்றன் மாலுக்கே*

For Srivaishanavaites,  “Kovil” denotes Thiruvarangam ~ the sacred abode of Lord Ranganatha in reclining posture.  The enormous temple spreads 156 acres having Seven prakaras.   At Thiruvallikkeni is the sannathi for Lord Ranganatha and Sri Vedavalli Thayar, considered to be the most ancient.

Kulasekara Azhwar in his Perumal Thirumozhi vows not to be in the group of ordinary morals who believe this unreal life to be true – one should only utter with conviction the name of our Lord Arangan and be obsessed towards that Thirumal.

At Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam today [12th Mar 2016] it was theppothsavam for Lord Ranganatha.  Inside theppam, Perumal Thirumozhi was rendered and then in the periya mada veethi purappadu,  Thiruvirutham was rendered in goshti.

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
