Kanu Parvettai purappadu Thiruvallikkeni 2019

At Thiruvallikkeni and in all other divyadesams, in the month of Margazhi it is ‘Dhanur vizha’ – every day there is rendering of Sri Andal’s thiruppavai (there are discourses too on Thiruppavai and so many places by learned people).  In this month occurs the 9 day Neeratta uthsavam and on Bhogi there is Thirukalyana mahotsav of Andal with Namperumal.  On Sankranthi day, there is Urgola uthsavam. After Sankranthi, comes ‘Kanu Uthsavam’  ~ in the morning of 16th Jan 2019 (Thai 2) there was purappadu of Andal and in the evening Sri Parthasarathi Kanu parvettai purapapdu.  

On this day occurs  the annual trip of Kachi Varadar, famously known as ‘Seevaram Paarvettai’.. and at Thiruvallikkeni today is Kanu Parvettai purappadu.  Words could fail describing His beauty and grace.

Periyazhwar describes Krishna  ~ that of subjects of Gokulam getting stranded on seeing the  beautiful cowherd Lord  adorned with peacock feathers having dark centre spots, and many jewels ….. when His mellifluous music pervaded, it was not only devotees even  the trees stood enchanted, and rained streams of nectar, poured flowers, and bent their upper branches in every which way the stood.

Adiyen Srinivasadhasan.
