Revathi Sri Ranganathar ~ and Perumal at marriage reception

Today is ‘Revathi’ nakshathiram in the month of Avani ~ and there was to be purappadu of Sri Ranganathar.  In someways disappointing as it could not take place due to some asantharpam nearer the Temple premises.   Later attended marriage reception of Sri U Ve Keezhathirumaligai Embar Sinthamani- Parankusa Nambi @ Srinikethan with Sow. Padmavathi @ Divya.

ஸ்ரீ ரங்கநாதனின்  திவ்யதரிசனம் கண்டு இன்புற இன்று திருவல்லிக்கேணியில் 2009ல்  நடைபெற்ற  ' ரேவதி புறப்பாட்டின்'  - படம் ஒன்று இங்கே.
வாய் அவனை  அல்லது வாழ்த்தாது கையுலகம்*
தாயவனை அல்லது  தாந்தொழா - பேய்முலை
நஞ்சூணாகவுண்டான் உருவோடு பேரல்லால்*
காணாகண் கேளா செவி.

~ astounding words of faith in Muthal Thiruvanthathi.  Poigai Azhwar speaks of Lord Krishna who strolled on Earth as a child, drank poison with relish from the breasts of ogress… Alwar proclaims that his hands will salute none other than Him; lips shall not extol anybody else; eyes will not see – other than His form ~ and ears would not hear anything other than the name(s) of Sriman Narayana.

We live – we pray – we go to temples….. in Sri Vaishnavism, in the various forms of God – the one which is easiest and the form in which the Supreme God makes Himself available to us daily is ‘Idol worship’ in Divyadesams and other temples – this is known as ‘Archai’ ~ Archavatharam, where the Supreme Lord Maha Vishnu manifests Himself in various idol forms and comes near us to shower his munificence to us ……….. 

Felt so happy for there in the marriage reception was this replica of our Sri Parthasarathi Emperuman so delightfully made.
