மயக்கினான்றன் மன்னுசோதி : Sri Azhagiya Singar Venugopala Thirukolam 2020

 தன் மன்னுசோதி : Sri Azhagiya Singar Venugopala Thirukolam 2020

Thavana Uthsavam is now on at Thiruvallikkeni and today  15.3.2020   is day 3 – the concluding day of the Uthsavam for Sri Azhagiya Singar.  In general in the morning of Thavana uthsavam occurs  what could be the shortest of the purappadu – still one would get  the greatest opportunity of worshipping Him in close quarters. (this year it was to be different due to an asantharpam)**  For this uthsavam of 3 days - at Thavana Uthsava bungalow, Thelliya Singar has thirumanjanam and thence rest.   With the onset of summer, Perumal takes rest under the roof made of dhavanam (Tamil: தவனம்) [Artemisia pallens] – an aromatic herb.  In the evening there will be purappadu inside the bungalow and thereafter periyamada veethi purappadu back to the sannathi. 

In this divyadesam, Lord Narasimha is in Yogic posture as Yoga Narasimha and the Uthsavar is the most beautiful Thelliya Singar, who is all grace.  For thavana uthsavam, Azhagiya Singar would have purappadu to Thavana uthsava bungalow in the morning on all 3 days – in the evening it would be different thirukolams (Kalinga Narthanam; Murali Kannan & Sri Venugopalan).  This year @ 6 pm Sri Azhagiya Singar had purappadu, brief halt at the bungalow and periya mada veethi purappadu.

For us Lord Sriman Narayana manifests in many forms – He is simple, makes Himself available to us – we cry Gopala – it means ‘the one who tends to cow’.  Divinity can easily be seen in great ascetics, Kings, and many other ways – our Lord is seen as cowherd too. In Gokul, as He grew the cows were so happy. He is the master of the Universe and of all arts – He is Venugopalan  – one who enchants people with his flute.  This is the thirukolam on day 3 of Azhagiya Singar thavana uthsavam.

மயக்கினான்றன் மன்னுசோதி

Blessed are  those who could have darshan of Lord Azhagiya Singa as Sri Venugopala ~ that blemishless hue of His  enchanted His bakthas and swept all  to His divine feet.  Here are some photos of the  purappadu – the first one was taken in morning purappadu last year.

** extremely sad that son of Chinnamurai archagar Sri NG Sampath swami passed away at a very young age – an irreparable loss to battar family.  We pray Emperuman to give them strength to bear this bereavement.
