Aippaisi Punarvasu Sree Ramar 2022 - நாரதம் பரிபப்ரச்ச வால்மீகிர்முநிபுங்கவம் ॥

Today 14.11.2022 is Punarvasu in the month of Aippaisi .. .. it has been raining heavily in most parts of Tamil Nadu.  In Chennai, rains relented during AN but now it is raining heavily !!  

Ramayanam is the undiluted history – greatest Ithihasa Purana of Bhagwan Sree Rama.   In this Epic, Srimad Valmiki   narrates the journey of Virtue to annihilate vice. This epic poem Ramayana is a smriti which is translated as "from memory".   Rāmāyaa presents various challenging situations and shows how each one of the personalities succeeds or fails in those situations.  

தப:ஸ்வாத்யாயநிரதம் !  தபஸ்வீ வாக்விதாம் வரம் ।

நாரதம் பரிபப்ரச்ச  வால்மீகிர்முநிபுங்கவம் ॥

तपःस्वाध्यायनिरतम्  -  तपस्वी वाग्विदां वरम् ।

नारदं परिपप्रच्छ  वाल्मीकिर्मुनिपुङ्गवम् ॥   

Vālmeeki, a Tapasvi, earnestly inquired  Nārada, veritable  among Munis, the foremost of the men of letters, who was deeply engaged in Tapa and Swādhyāya:  Muni is someone who is focused on the pursuit of his quest, especially on the nature of the Universe, breathing and living it every moment.  Tapa is following a strict regimen to stretch, train, tune and hone the body and mind, to make them perform at their best. Tapasvi is one who performs Tapa. Swādhyāya is studying a subject to which one is committed. 'Bull among' 'tiger among', 'elephant among', etc. are idioms used widely in Sanskrit literature. They all mean the same, 'prominent among', 'standing tall above others', etc.  

Valmiki further queried Naradha - O Maharshi, you would assuredly be aware of such a person if one ever existed. I am very curious and yearn to know about him from you.  .. .. ..   and Narada responded - He is born into the lineage of Ikshwāku. He is known to all by the name Rāma. He has complete mastery over himself. He is a man of great valour. He is of brilliant radiance. He is extremely courageous. He has complete mastery over his senses.  

இன்று திருவல்லிக்கேணி திவ்யதேசத்திலே மாச திருநக்ஷத்திர  புறப்பாடு எனினும் ஸ்ரீராமச்சந்திர மூர்த்தி அழகான திருவாபரணங்கள் - திருமார்பு பதக்கம், காசு மாலை, மகிழம் பூ, மல்லிகை, சம்பங்கி,  சாமந்தி, சிகப்பு விருட்சி என மலர்மாலைகள்  - இவை எல்லாவற்றையும் விட.. .. இராமனது திருக்கரங்களிலே அழகான மணிகள் கொண்ட கோதண்டம் எனும் வில்; மற்றோரு திருக்கரத்தில் அம்பு பாணம் !   சற்று கூர்ந்து நோக்கினால் அவரது வில்லின் குமிழ் யாளி போன்ற அமைப்பை கொண்டதையும் அங்கேயும் மணி உள்ளத்தையும் சேவிக்கலாம்.  


At Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam on a rain filled day – Sree Ramachandra moorthi with his consort Seethadevi and Lakshmanan had siriya mada veethi purappadu on Punarvasu and there was rendering of ‘Perumal thirumozhi’ inside temple with Sri KUlasekara Azhwar, Mudali Andan and Embar too seated nearer Sri Ramar.  

Adikavi, the writer of epic Sree Ramayan has a pride of place in Bengaluru.  A 12-foot tall statue of Maharshi Valmiki has been  installed outside the east gate of the Vidhana Soudha (facing the High Court) on a stretch of land abutting the Raj Bhavan.  

Recently our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi ji paid  floral tributes to the statues of saint poet Kanakadasa and Maharshi Valmiki at Vidhana Soudha in Bengaluru.  Our PM  later flagged off south India's first, state-of-the-art Vande Bharat express and  Bharat Gaurav Kashi Darshan service, operated by the Karnataka government's Muzrai Department, from the Krantiveera Sangolli Railway station here.  The Kashi service will fulfill the dream of numerous travellers intending to undertake Yatra to the holy city, according to the South Western Railway. It is an eight-day tour package at discounted rates for pilgrims.  This train covers holy places including Varanasi, Ayodhya and Prayagraj.     

Here are some photos of Sree Ramar punarvasu purappadu at Thiruvallikkeni.
