Eekkadu Thangal Thiruvural Uthsavam 2014

“EEkkadu Thaangal Thiruvooral Uthsavam -  
Thiurvallikkeni Emperuman purappadu”

This is a photo taken at around 01.00 am in the morning of today, and one might wonder how there are so many around and more importantly, why a purappadu of Perumal at such a time ????

At Thiruvallikkeni Divyadesam there are daily, monthly, yearly uthsavams. Most of them occur on specific nakshathiram.  Today [night of 1.2.14 & early morning of 2.2.14]  is ‘Eekkadu Thangal Thiruvural Uthsavam’ – which has no connection with any nakshathiram. Eekkadu Thangal near Guindy is an area known for its industries and it lies on the bank of Adyar river.  Every year, Sri Parthasarathi visits this place.  This Uthsavam is held on a Sunday in the tamil month of Maasi, when there are no other special uthsavams.    Today  2nd  Feb 2014, this Uthsavam is taking place.

Sri Parthasarathi Swami started from His temple in the early hours of today at around 01.15 am and after ‘mandakapadis’ at various places visits Eekkadu Thangal.  The first halt is at Thavana Uthsava Bungalow, then Sri Parthasarathi Swami Sabha, then Vijay Avenue, Venkatrangam Street.  Sri Parthasarathi then visited Mylai Madhava Perumal Thirukovil ~ and later Sri Adhi Kesava Perumal Sannathi near Chithirai Kulam.  [there will be a separate post of Azhwar mangalasasanam at Thirumayilai later………]

Sri Parthasarathi after Mylapore, goes via Alwarpet, T Nagar, Kodambakkam, Mahalingapuram, Saidapet and finally reaches Eekkadu Thangal where Thirumanjanam is performed.  The purappadu is now on.. Here are some photos taken this morning.
