Thirumylai Madhava Perumal Sevai ~ மாய்ந்தறும் வினைகள்தாமே மாதவா என்ன !!

Though too early to celebrate, there are some good signs in the Covid 19 front in India.  As per the data released by Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, India on October 26 reported single-day spike of 45,149 new coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours.  Today (26.10.2020)  is the 217th  day since India implemented a nationwide lockdown, to help curb the novel coronavirus pandemic.    India’s recovery rate continues to rise and now stands at 90.2 percent. The no. of recovered patients are also higher. 

Globally, many countries are suffering in what is stated as second wave.  Britain is now recording more Covid-19 deaths each day for the size of its population than the US for the first time since June, data has revealed. Both countries are currently recording around two Covid-19 deaths for every million people — but Britain's rate stands slightly higher at 2.63, compared to 2.4 in the US. The UK suffered far higher daily death counts in the spring, relative to its population. But over the summer, while Britain's outbreak fizzled out, America's failed to improve.   The US currently has the highest cumulative death toll in the world at 228,477. And researchers warned last week that the grim tally could pass half a million by February, in a worst-case scenario.  Britain also posted its highest ever daily number of cases tally last week, registering 26,688 positive tests on Wednesday.  Officials in both nations have been highly criticised for their handling of the crisis. Donald Trump's administration was blamed for 'one of the greatest losses of American life in history' by his presidential election rival Joe Biden, while Boris Johnson was accused of failing to act quickly enough in March.

The Czech Republic is facing a 'catastrophic' Covid-19 outbreak and needs a 'miracle' to avoid new restrictions, its prime minister said last night with its infection rate now the highest of any major country in the world.  Andrej Babis said the current lockdown measures 'are not working yet' after the country's coronavirus deaths doubled in the space of two weeks. Like many countries which escaped lightly from the first wave, the Czech Republic is now seeing record numbers of fatalities.  The country where the virus originated, China reported the highest number of asymptomatic Covid-19 cases in nearly seven months, following a mass infection of an unknown origin in the northwestern Xinjiang region.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is urging people around the world not to give up in the fight against the coronavirus as cases surge once again, stressing the need for mask-wearing, physical distancing and other measures to avoid the kind of full-scale lockdowns that were imposed earlier this year.  WHO chief   told a virtual briefing that he understood the “pandemic fatigue” that some people were feeling but stressed the need to continue measures to contain a virus for which there remains no cure or vaccine.

The Covid-19 pandemic arrived when we were on the threshold of a fourth industrial revolution, based on artificial intelligence. Perhaps this is the right time for another renaissance that the World fights the dreaded virus and eliminates it.

For us, Srivaishnavaites, there is simple remedy.  All our woes will vanish in thin air, when we utter the names of Lord Sriman Narayana.  When we utter ‘Madhava’ – the Lord at the golden walled Thiruvananthapura Nagar, all good things happen.  Those who worship Him with fragrant sandal paste, flower, lamp, incense and fresh lotus petals will attain eternal glory.  

எம்பெருமானுடைய பல்லாயிர திருநாமங்களை ' அச்சுதா, அனந்தா, கோவிந்தா!, மாதவா!, கேசவா!, நாராயணா!, கண்ணா!, மதுசூதனா, ஹ்ரிஷீகேசா, பத்மநாபா, வாசுதேவா"  எனப்பாடி ஆனந்தித்து அவனை அவனுறையும் பல்வேறு கோவில்களில் சென்று சேவித்து, அவனது உத்சவங்களில் வாகன சேவைகளில் கண்டு இன்புறுகிறோம்... .. ஒவ்வொரு திருநாமத்துக்கும் தனி மகிமையும் சிறப்பும் உண்டு.  மாதவா என்பது தேனினும் இனிய சொல் ! .. .. இதோ இங்கே ஸ்வாமி நம்மாழ்வாரின் திருவானந்தபுர நகர் பாசுரம்.


மாய்ந்தறும் வினைகள்தாமே மாதவா என்ன நாளும்*

ஏய்ந்த பொன்மதிள்   அனந்தபுரநகர்  எந்தைக்கென்று*

சாந்தொடு விளக்கம் தூபம் தாமரை மலர்கள்  நல்ல

ஆய்ந்து  கொண்டேத்தவல்லார் அந்தமில் புகழினாரே !.

எம்பெருமான் ஸ்ரீமந்நாரணனை மாதவா என்று வாய் நிறைய சொன்னவளவிலே,   பாவங்கள் தானே தொலைந்தொழியும்.  எம்பெருமானுக்கு உகந்த நல்ல மணக்கும் சந்தன தீப தூபங்களையும், தாமரைப் பூக்களையும் சேகரித்துக் கொண்டு சென்று  நாடோறும் துதி செய்ய வல்ல பக்தர்கள்  பொருந்தின பொன்மதினையுடைத்தான திருவனந்தபுரநாதனுக்கென்று ஸங்கல்பித்து அழிவில்லாத புகழை யுடையராவர். அந்த எம்பெருமானை அடைந்தவர்க்கு எந்த கெடுதலும் இல்லாமல் அனைத்து நல்லவைகளும் சிறப்பாக நடக்கும்.  

Mylapore is  a shoppers’ paradise, still seeing crowds amidst Corona too  ~  the  historical place has two MRTS railway stations : Thirumayilai and Sri Mundakakanni amman temple.  In between runs Kutchery road, linking Beach Road with Luz Junction and you would have travelled many a times on this – do you know that one of the bylanes leads to a famous landmark   at Arundale Street  – Sri Peyalwar avatharasthalam.  One would be surprised to find so many temples in small lanes and bylanes of Thirumayilapuri.  As one crosses, the Hamilton Bridge, is the famous  ‘Sri Mylai Madhava Perumal Thirukovil’   and behind this is ‘ Mundagakanni Amman temple’.  At Madhava Perumal temple, the Presiding deity is in a sitting posture hailed as Sri Madhavar and His consort is Amirthavalli.  The Uthsavar idol is extremely beautiful.  

Saturday 24.10.2020 provided great opportunity of darshan at Thirumylai Sri Madhava Perumal thirukovil and here are photos of Sri Madhavar, Sri Amirthavalli thayar, serthi, and Sri Peyalwar.  Exceptionally beautiful sarruppadi by Sri Ashwin Sundararajan Battar swami.
