Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Thirukolam - Azhagiya Singar Brahmothsavam Day 8

At Thiruvallikkeni, unlike other Divyadesams, there are two dwajasthambams [kodimaram] and there are two Brahmothsavams – one for Sri Parthasarathi and the other for Azhagiya Singar.  Both are conducted in the same grand manner.  There are some small differences – On day 8th morning it is ‘Vennak thazhi kannan’ for Sri Parthasarathi, while it is ‘Lakshmi Narasimhar’ for Azhagiya Singar.

For us Pirattiyar is all  divine grace and kind to devotees of Sriman Narayana.  Emperuman is absolute, matchless and blemishless in all aspects.  Piratti complements HIM ~ she is always associated with Emperuman.  It is only She who can direct us towards the blessings of Emperuman. 

At Thiruvallikkeni, Lord Narasimha is in the most pleasing form – He is Thelliya Singar, also called Azhagiya Singar. Today it was Lakshmi Narasimha Thirukolam, the most beautiful Perumal had Lakshmi Pirattiyar closest to Him and it was the greatest darshan a baktha could have.  Here are some photos taken during today’s purappadu [25th June 2013]

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
