Swami Emperumanar Hamsa vahanam 2022

Our Srivaishnavism hails Ubhaya Vedantha – there are philosophies restricted to having their scriptures in either Sanskrit or Tamil ~ Sri Vaishnavism has Sanskrit and dravida vedantha in equal parlance. .. .. and we have the noblest of preceptors  - Swami Ramanujar – the King of all hermits guiding us the path. 

நம்மிராமாநுசர்   :  சொல்லார் தமிழ் ஒரு மூன்றும்; சுருதிகள் நான்கும்; எல்லை இல்ல அறநெறி யாவும் தெரிந்தவன் என திருவரங்கத்து அமுதனாலே போற்றப்படுபவர்.    Thiruvarangathu Amuthanar hails Ramanuja as a master of Prose, Poetry, Drama in Tamil; all the four Sanskrit Vedas and all inclusive countless Dharma Sastras.
The Greatest to descend as a human being on this earth, Swami Ramanuja Charya neatly chronicled and documented in as many terms the VisishtAdvaita sampradAya. The works of all other acharyas followed his footsteps. Thus our darsanam is fondly known  “Emperumanar darsanam” or “Ramanuja Darsanam”. The concept of Sarangati as developed by Azhvargal,  Nadamunigal, Alavanthar was documented by Ramanuja both in text and practice.

On  third day of  Brahmothsavam of Sri Parthasarathi Perumal [as also Thelliya Singar] it is the big heavy golden   ‘Hamsa Vahanam’ in the evening .  The Thiruvallikkeni  Hamsa vahanam is one of the heaviest among the vahanams.  The bird Hamsa  is known for its purity and powers.  
Blessed are we to be living and have the fortune of partaking in  celebrations of Swami Udayavar.  Today(28.4.2022)  at Thiruvallikkeni on day 3 evening, it was Hamsa vahanam for Sri Udayavar.  This big vahanam of  Sri Parthasarathi & Sri Azhagiya Singar only, had the  fortune of carrying our Swami Ramanujar a couple of years ago, on the occasion of Special Sahasrabdi Uthsavam.
