Ekadina Naalayira Vaag Yagnam at Thiruvallikkeni ~ Sri Thennacharya Sripadham Thangi Sabhai

Another special day today 22nd day of Purattasi ~ 8th Oct 2017 – though no purappadu or other special at Thiruvallikkeni Sri Parthasarathi swami temple.

When we do kainkaryam to Lord (to Him at Thiruvenkadam), we must do service by being with HIM throughout our life and do as a slave would serve his master.    ஒழிவில் காலமெல்லாம் உடனாய் மன்னி, வழுவிலா  அடிமை செய்ய வேண்டும் நாம்,” –

Life in a divyadesam is always exhilarating – you get to mingle with so many persons whose life is entwined in service to Emperuman Sriman Narayana.  Of the many kainkaryams, Sripadham thangi is physically associated too and can be very demanding.  At Thiruvallikkeni there are many dedicated youngsters who are extremely committed to the kainkaryam of carrying the Lord on their shoulders and do all the associated activities.  Their involvement actually commences hours before every purappadu and ends an hour or so later.

A couple of decades ago, they got more organized and formed Sri Thennacharya Sri Vaishnava Sripadham Thangigal Kainkarya Sabhai ~ now a registered association too. They are rendering great service – of their many activities, every year they organize chanting of ‘Nalayira divyaprabantham’ in a single day.

Today, the Kainkarya sabha has organized this vaak yagnam [divine chanting] ~ Ekadina Nalayira divyaprabandha Vagnagnam at Sri Yadugiri Yathiraja Mutt  – which incidentally is 20th year in succession.  This morning  His Holiness Sri Perumpudur Appan Parakala Ramanuja Embar Jeeyar Swami blessed and partook in the rendering. His Holiness Embar jeeyar  Swami is a renowned scholar, known for his exceptional clarity and style of writing and deliverance of kalakshepams. Swami at 93+ is very active and Triplicanities are fortunate today as he visited Thiruvallikkeni.

Here are some photos taken this morning.
