I have been posting on the special Thai Brahmothsavam of Sri Parthasarathi Perumal. Brahmothsavam is a grand Celebration – a festivity of 10 days conducted for the Lord at Divyadesams. The origin of this Uthsavam is traced back to Brahma itself – Brahma originated the festivity and hence ‘Brahmothsavam’.
At Thiruvallikkeni, there are 2 Brahmothsavams – one for Sri Parthasarathi in the month of Chithirai and for Lord Azhagiyasingar in Aani. The brahmothsavam starts with hoisting of flag [dwajarohanam] and ends a day after the unfurling [avarohanam]. For this purpose , there are two kodi marams [holy flag posts] in Thiruvallikkeni.
It is all about people – celebrations for the people, bakthas having darshan of Perumal in various vahanams and alankarams … here is some people perspective of Kannadi pallakku day [day 9 of uthsavam 8th Feb 2o16]
