Swami Manavala Mamunigal Sarrumurai (Eve) 2019 :

Swami Manavala Mamunigal Sarrumurai (Eve) 2019 :
அழகு திகழ்ந்திடும் ஐப்பசியில் திருமூலம் ***

Friday 1st Nov 2019   was the great day of Acaryan Sarrumurai ~ Aippasiyil Thirumoolam.   In the morning purappadu, the cynosure of eyes were the  spotless white parasols – the divine kodais    ~ 10 sets of them – the divine kodais 20 in no.  ..  ..  The morning of the busy Friday  dawned so gracefully – for those of us would never forget the greatest darshan one would dream -  the divine blessing of  ‘Kaithala Sevai’ ~ [Lord Parthasarathi and consorts being carried in the hands of the battars] – then the umbrellas were getting opened up – spotless white parasols – the divine kodais  ‘Thirumoolam in Aippasi’  the day commemorating the birth of divine Acharyar Swami Manavala Mamunigal.  The purappadu was delayed and started around 10 am – but hundreds of us were waiting for that grand moment of our Acaryan having grand purappadu with our Emperuman Sri Parthasarathi.. .. then there was grand purappadu in the evening – our Acaryar with Emperuman.

                                Acaryar Mamunigal is fondly known as ‘Yatheendra Pravanar’ arising out of his irresistible attachment to the lotus feet of Sri Ramanujar [Yatheendrar].  Sri  Manavala Mamunigal is the incarnation of Adisesha.   One must adore and be attached to their Acharyan and only the direction of Acharyar will lift us from all earthly evils – and for Us fallen at the feet called ‘Ponnadiyam Sengamalam’ – Swami Manavala Mamunigal will direct us and take us to salvation.  Those of us who try and uphold the ideals of our religion and its cultural heritage, will sure be benfitted as it then becomes the responsibility of Acharya to take care of Sishya's Atma guna poorthi. 

                           Of the many works, ‘Upadesa Rathinamalai’ is one which all of us should know and recite regularly.  There are 73 paasurams + thanian given  by Kovil Kandadai annan and another one rendered by Erumbiappa was rendered in the morning purappadu.  There was another purappadu in the evening too ~ Emperuman enjoys being with him and hence there is purappadu of Sri Parthasarathi with Mamunigal in the morning  and the evening. Here are some photos of the evening purappadu in which Iramanuja Noorranthathi was rendered in the goshti.

இப்படிப்பட்ட கீர்த்திமிகு ரம்ய (அழகிய) ஜாமாதர (மணவாள) முனி (மாமுனிகள்)கள் திருவடிகளுக்கு பல்லாண்டு,  பல்லாண்டு பாடுவோம்.

"மன்னுயிர்காள் ! இங்கே மணவாளமாமுனிவன்
பொன்னடியாம்  செங்கமலப் போதுகளை- உன்னிச்
சிரத்தாலே தீண்டில் அமானவனும் நம்மை
கரத்தாலே தீண்டல் கடன்"
