Sri Azhagiya Singar Garuda Sevai 2021

 Sri Azhagiya Singar Garuda Sevai 2021

ஸ்ரீமன் நாரணனே நமக்கு என்றென்றும் அழியாத நிதி. அவன் திருவடி நீழலில் உள்ளோர்க்கு எந்த தீங்கும் நடக்காது என்பது திண்ணம். 

பொலிந்திருண்ட கார்வானில் மின்னேபோல் தோன்றி,

மலிந்து திருவிருந்த மார்வன், - பொலிந்த

கருடன்மேல் கொண்ட கரியான் கழலே,

தெருடன்மேல் கண்டாய் தெளி.


Sriman Narayana appears riding on the mighty Garuda – to  Thirumylai Peyazhwar -  it is akin to  a glorious dark raincloud lit by a lightning, the most merciful Saviour of the Universe – Emperuman with lotus dame Sri Mahalakshmi on his chest – provides darshan seated on Periya thiruvadi Garuda. He ordains his heart, that having seen Emperuman’s  feet  through knowledge,  asks Heart to rise and understand the greatness of eternal Saviour Sriman Narayana.  

Brahmothsavam  is a grand festivity – each day it is different Vahanam, and Perumal has classy alankarams … on Garuda vahanam day, thousands gather early in the morning to catch glimpse of the Lord as he comes out of the gate (Gopura vasal darsanam).  In the grand Brahmothsavam, each Vahanam, every purappadu has its  own charm, yet, if one were to ask the most majestic and most crowd-pulling ones,  it would be Thiruther and Garuda vahanam. !!  .. .. ..    On Garuda Sevai day, people from far and away come to the temple, offer vasthram (new clothes), place before Lord coconut, fruits & other offerings and have darshan of Lord in Garuda vahanam. 

At Thiruvallikkeni divaydesam – for Sri Parthasarathi & Sri Azhagiya Singar brahmothsavam – day 3 morning would be the majestic Garuda vahanam.  Today  (4.3.2021) being day 3 of Sri Thelliya Singar  Special brahmothsavam, there was grand purappadu of Sri Azhagiya Singar  on periya thiruvadi – Garuda sevai.  Here are some photos taken this morning; would post another one on people .. ..
