Sri Perumpudur Sri Ramar Purappadu

On Independence Day [15th Aug 2012], the National flag was hoisted at SYMA medical centre.  That day being ‘Punarpoosam’ nakshathiram had the fortune of worshipping at Maduramangalam – the birthplace of our Acharyar ‘Embar’ – who followed Swami Ramanuja Acharya like his shadow.  Later returned to Sri Perumpudur.

Sri Perumpudur is the most divine place for us – for this is the place where our Greatest Acharyar ‘Sri Ramanujar’ famously known as ‘Emperumanaar, Bashyakarar, Udayavar, Yathirajar, Ilaya Perumal’ and more… the reincarnation of Aadi Sesha and Sri Lakshmanar was born.  Sri Ramanuja was born in the year 1017  heere at  Sriperumbudur to Kesava Somayaji and Gandhimathi couples.   His uncle was Sri Tirumalai Nambi  who did great kainkaryam at Thirumala.  Arising out of his ascetic prowess, he is hailed as Yathi Raja – the King of all ascetics.  “Anujan” means younger brother.  Ramanuja’s avtar is attributed to Sri Lakshmana the younger brother of Lord Rama and as , Sri Lakshmana himself, Ramanuja represents the divine  Adisesha.   Worshipping Sri Ramanujar at this temple will cure us of all sins.

Being ‘Aadi Punarvasu’  - Sri Rama with Seetha and Lakshmanar on both sides had purappadu.  One would feel divinely blessed to have the darshan of the Greatest Warrior with Bow – One who would do everything to keep up His words – ‘Sree Rama Piran’. 

In the veedhi purappadu, ‘Perumal Thirumozhi’ of Sri Kulasekara Azhwar was rendered.  Srivaikuntavasi His Hoilness Sri Varada Yathiraja Jeear Swamigal adorned the Divyaprabandha goshti. 

At Sriperumpudur – the paraphernalia  comprising Bull, Camel and Elephant – all add to the  regal  Perumal procession.  Here are some photos taken during Sri Ramar purappadu
