Aani makam ~ Thirumazhisai Piran

Today is ‘Aani Makam’ marking the thirunakshathiram of Thirumazhisai Alwar.

Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) is an organization dedicated to a process of inner development.  On June 24,   Indo Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) took over the Covid Care Centre at Radha Soami Beas Chattarpur, New Delhi as nodal agency to take care of the operations at the facility.  A day earlier, ITBP was nominated as a nodal agency by the Union Home Ministry to provide the doctors and team of other professionals to this centre as requested by the Delhi government.  It is expected that a 2,000 bed facility will be operational at the Centre from June 26. The total bed capacity at this centre may go upto 10,200. This will be the largest single Covid Care Centre in Delhi and the country.

Former India cricketer Robin Singh was on Thursday fined Rs 500 and his car impounded for allegedly violating lockdown rules in the city, police said. The 56-year-old former Tamil Nadu player had gone by car to purchase vegetables and was caught by police personnel for the violation, police sources said. He was fined Rs.500 for the violation, they added. Chennai and three adjoining districts are under intense lockdown from June 19 to 30 as part of steps to contain the Covid-19 spread.  According to lockdown rules, people are advised to move only within two km of their residences to buy essential items and asked not to use their vehicles.

Fifa's ruling council has unanimously approved the Covid-19 Relief Plan giving a total of $1.5 billion to help the global football community weather the coronavirus pandemic. Fifa said that each of the 211 member associations will get a one million dollars payment, part of which will be granted in July this year, while the rest in January next year.

India's Covid-19 tally crossed the 4.9 lakh with yet another highest single-day spike of 17,296 new cases.   With more than 17,000 new cases of novel Coronavirus on Thursday, India moved closer to half the million mark, which is expected to be crossed on Friday itself. Only three countries, United States, Brazil and Russia, have a higher caseload.  The surge is coming mainly from Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Haryana, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, though on Thursday, Maharashtra too seems to have joined in. Maharashtra, the state with the highest caseload in the country, had been consistently showing a declining growth rate, but on Thursday reported 4,841 new cases, an unusually high number considering the recent trends.

Covid-19 is a new disease and there is no drug or vaccine for it as of now and the patients are being given medicines that were approved for treating other viral infections. At least five medicines have either been given a go-ahead from the government to treat coronavirus infected patients in India or are in the final stages of the trial being carried out. India has also been using hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), an antimalarial drug, for treating Covid patients.  The treatment protocols for coronavirus are being revised from time to time based on emerging evidences.  

In Tamil Nadu, the vegetable market at Koyambedu was identified as a cluster where from more cases were emanating and authorities set up temporary markets in Thirumazhisai and Madhavaram for vegetables and fruits.  It is reported that the vegetable market  saw a dip in sales on  the first day of the complete lockdown period announced by the State government. The recent summer rains (nothing much in Chennai though !) had added to the woes with some shops getting inundated at Thirumazhisai wholesale market making the conditions worser.  

சென்னையிலிருந்து பூவிருந்தவல்லி (பூந்தமல்லி) வழியாக திருவள்ளூர்திருப்பதி செல்லும் பாதையில் அமைந்துள்ள ஊர் "திருமழிசை". - உலகு மழிசையும் உள்ளுணர்ந்துஉலகு தன்னை வைத்து எடுத்த பக்கத்தும் மாநீர் மழிசை வலிது என பிரசித்தி பெற்ற இத்தலத்தில்   துவாபரயுகம் முதலாழ்வார்கள் அவதரித்த சித்தார்த்தி வருஷம் தை மாசம்  கிருஷ்ண பக்ஷம் பிரதமை திதி கூடிய மகம் நட்சத்திரத்தில்பார்க்கவ முனிவருக்கும் கநகாங்கி என்கிற அப்ஸரஸ் ஸ்த்ரீக்கும் குமாரராக  திருமழிசைப்பிரான் அவதரித்தார். இவர் ஸுதர்சனமென்னும் சக்கரதாழ்வாரின் திரு அம்சம். 

  For Srivaishnavaites, Azhwaars and their birthdays  are of great significance.    Bhakthisarar,  well known as Thirumazhisai Azhwar was born in Thirumazhisai and hence is hailed as Thirumazhisai Piran.  This  place is near Poonamallee around 20 kms away from Chennai on the Bangalore High Road. Thirumazhisaippiran’s  works are : Naanmukhan Thiruvanthathi (96) and Thiruchanda Virutham (120).  He was born in the Magam nakshathiram of Thai month.  

முக்கண் மூர்த்தியான சிவபெருமான் இவருக்கு பக்திசாரர் என திருநாமம் சாற்றினார். இவர் பல இடங்களுக்கு சென்று பல மதங்களையும் பரிசோதித்தவர். பேயாழ்வார் இவரை திருத்தி பணி கொண்டார்.     இவர் அருளிச் செய்த பிரபந்தங்கள் : 2 -  நான்முகன் திருவந்தாதி (96) திருச்சந்த விருத்தம் (120) ஆக மொத்தம் 216 பாசுரங்கள். இவரை "துய்ய மதி பெற்ற" என ஸ்ரீமணவாளமாமுனிகள் கொண்டாடுகிறார்.

தனது நான்முகன் திருவந்தாதியில் சக்கரத்தைக் கையில் கொண்ட திருமால் ஒருவன்தான் தேவன். அவன் பெருமையை  வேதம் முதலிய நூல்களால் ஆராயப்படும் பொருள்அவன் திருவடி தொழுவதே எல்லா அருளும் தர வல்லது என்று பாடிய திருமழிசை செல்வன் பக்திசாரர்  அவதரித்த நன்னாளை கொண்டாடுவோம். 

தேருங்கால்  தேவன் ஒருவனே என்று உரைப்பர்;
ஆரும் அறியார் அவன் பெருமை; - ஓரும்
பொருள்முடிவும் இத்தனையேஎத் தவம் செய்தார்க்கும்
அருள்முடிவது ஆழியான் பால்
