Eekkadu Thangal Uthsavam - Sri Peyalwar Mangalasasanam at Thiru Mayilai 2014

“EEkkadu Thaangal Thiruvooral Uthsavam
Sri Peyalwar Mangalasasanam at Thirumayilai.”

At Thiruvallikkeni Divyadesam ~ a significant Uthsavam is ‘Eekkadu Thangal Thiruvural Uthsavam’ – whence Sri Parthasarathi in a grand procession reaches - Eekkadu Thangal near Guindy in a palanquin.   

The route is circuitous as many devotees feel overwhelmed in having His darshan nearer them.  Sri Parthasarathi Swami started from His temple in the early hours of today at around 0100 am and after ‘mandakapadis’ at various places visits Eekkadu Thangal. 

At around 03.00 am, it was Mangalasasanam at Thiru Mayilai … near Chithirai kulam at Mylapore,  Sri Peyalwar  of waited for Sri Parthasarathi and took Him along to Mylai Sri Adhi Kesava Perumal Temple.  There was veedhi purappadu whence the prabandham of Sri Peyalwaar –“Moondram Thiruvanthathi” was recited.  After mandakapadi at the temple,  Alwar accompanied Perumal in veethipurappadu which culminated with ‘Moondram Thiruvanthathi sarrumurai’ near Chithirai kulam, which shone with colourful lights in view of the ‘float festival’ (Theppothsavam)

Sri Parthasarathi after Mylapore, proceeded via Alwarpet, T Nagar, Kodambakkam, Mahalingapuram, Saidapet and finally reached Eekkadu Thangal where Thirumanjanam was performed.  Here are some photos taken  at Thirumayilai …..
