Masi Magam Samuthira Theerthavari - Mogappair Sri Santhana Srinivasa Perumal

14th Feb 2014  is Masi Magam.  I had posted about the grand purappadu of Sri Parthasarathi Perumal in Garuda vahanam to Marina and the theerthavari at Bay of Bengal as also the purappadu of Egmore Srinivasa Perumal and Mylai Sri Madhava Perumal. 

This morning, the beach presented a holy sight of GODs ….         ~ the  vast expanse of Marina daily has so many people visiting starting with the early morning walkers to those who spend time happily in the evenings… but this day, the crowd was far different … they were the worshippers – those seeking divine blessings accompanying the Lord and had come for holy bath in the sea on the auspicious day of ‘masi magam’ ; the sea which was blessed with the Divine intervention was perhaps showing its happiness on seeing the holy crowd with huge tidal waves.

Alongside Sri Parthasarathi Perumal were many other Perumals including ~ Srinivasa Perumal  from Egmore on Garuda Vahanam;  Mylai Sri Madha Perumal  and this year there was Perumal from Mogappair.   Mogappair reportedly was once ‘Maga-p-peru’ [blessed with progeny] ~ as it happens, with persistent mispronunciation, the name became ‘Mugappair or Mogappair’….. there is the temple of Sri Santhana Srinivasa Perumal, the deity who grants the blessing of parenthood to his worshippers. 

There was congregation Perumals ~ and heads of Bakthas who took holy bath in the sea.  Here are some photos taken at Marina beach this morning.

Adiyen Srinivasadhasan.
