திருவரங்கத்து உறையும் என் திருவரங்கனே ! ~ உன்னையல்லால்
என்னை உய்விக்க வல்லவர் எவர் உளர் ??
Today 16th Oct 2016 - is Puratasi Revathi and Sri Mannathar (Sri Ranganathar) had siriya mada veethi purappadu. Here are some photos of Lord Ranganatha.
ஊரிலேன் காணியில்லை உறவு மற்றொருவரில்லை
பாரில்நின் பாதமூலம் பற்றிலேன் பரம மூர்த்தி
காரொளி வண்ணனே என் கண்ணனே கதறுகின்றேன்
ஆருளர்க் களைகணம்மா அரங்கமா நகருளானே.
Thondaradipodi Azhwar in his emotive address to Lord Ranganatha laments his misfortune of not having born in divyadesams; has no relatives, nothing to claim for and have acquaintance with the place of the Lord. Oh Lord of dark radiance, I have not even secured your feet – I scream and call your names and there can be none other that the Great Lord of Thiruvarangam ~ Lord Ranganatha who owns the Universe and resides at Srirangam (described as ‘Arangamaanagar’) who can protect me…
Many of you who have been following would instantly remember that only recently, I had posted on ‘Purattasi Revathi Sri Ranganathar purappadu’. Yes, this month Revathi occurred twice – on 18th Sept (2nd day of Purattasi) and today (30th day of Purattasi) – and we are fortunate to have darshan of Lord Ranganatha. Here are some photos taken during today’s purappadu.
Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
