Sri Azhagiya Singar ~ ascending Thiruther 2017

We worship Sriman Narayana, as  devotees and followers of the Vedic path, we firmly believe that  Lord Krishna descended on this Universe some  5,000 years ago.  His upadesam Srimad Bhagavad Geetha is the greatest treasure trove, rendered in the midst of Mahabaratha, when He offered to drive the chariot of Arjuna and earned the sobriquet ‘Sri Parthasarathi’  ~ and at Thiruvallikkeni there are 2 grand brahmothsavam – in Chithirai for Sri Parthasudhan and Aani for Sri Thelliya Singar.

Today, 9th July 2017  is day 7 of Sri AzhagiyaSingar Aani  Brahmothsavam – the grand Thiruther [chariot]….. one will realise its grandeur that of rolling juggernaut, if one were to stand near as the 8 or 9 feet wheel rotates by.  Thiruther is a grand occasion of togetherness of people.  During Brahmothsavam thousands throng Temple and have darshan of Perumal in His veethi purappadu ~ significantly, during Thiruther, thousands partake – they pull, go around, push, offer buttermilk and panakam [jaggery water] to devotees and there is celebrations on the air, clearly visible.  The starting i.e., Thiruther vadam is to take place in an hour from now – come and have darshan of Sri Azhagiya Singar thiruther purappadu and all can have darshan of Emperuman on thiruther till evening.   
திருவல்லிக்கேணி திவ்யதேசத்திலே இன்று ஸ்ரீ அழகியசிங்கர் திருத்தேர்.  எம்பெருமான் திருத்தேருக்கு இன்று அதிகாலை எழுந்து அருளிய அவசரம் இங்கே: .. திருமங்கை மன்னன் கூறியது :  **  நள்ளிருளளவும் பகலும் நானழைப்பன் நாராயணா என்னும் நாமம்.   [அஹோராத்ர விபாகமின்றி ஸர்வகாலத்திலும் ~ இரவு பகல் என்னாமலே  எப்போதும்] உரைக்க வேண்டிய நாமம் 'நமோ நாராயணாய'

In the words of Thirumangai Mannan ~ ; be it midnight or day time – it is my desire to always cherish and chant the name of Sriman Narayana – Om Namo Narayanana

அடியேன் ஸ்ரீனிவாச தாசன்.
