Iyarpa sarrumurai : இயற்பா சாற்றுமுறை - 2015

 Iyarpa sarrumurai :   இயற்பா சாற்றுமுறை

I have been writing about  Adhyayana Uthsavam comprising of Pagal Pathu, Vaikunda Ekadasi, Irapathu, culminating with Iyarpa Sarrumurai – during this great Uthsavam, “Naalayira Divaprabandham’ is rendered entirely.

During Pagal pathu, it is the 1st and 2nd Aayiram pasurams including : Periyalwar Thirumozhi, Thiruppavai, Nachiyar Thirumozhi, Perumal Thirumozhi, Thiruchanda Vrutham, Thirumaalai, Thirupalliyezuchi, Amalalathipiraan, Kanninum Chiru thambu, Thirumozhi, Thirukurunthandagam, ThiruNedumthandagam are recited in the  afternoons.

The Irapathu is hailed as ‘Thiruvaimozhi Thirunaal’ when after the purappadu, daily one hundred from Thiruvaimozhi  are rendered everyday.   On day 10, it is  the last canto ‘Patham Pathu’ of Swami Nammalwar, which speaks of ‘entering Vaikundam’ by all ‘vaikuntham puguvathu mannavar vithiye’ in the pasuram of  Nammalwar. 

The day after the culmination of Irapathu,  comes “Iyarpa Sarrumurai” when all pasurams of Iyarpa are being rendered.  On 11th Jan 2015, it was the Iyarpa sarrumurai at Thiruvallikkeni.  At the Thiruvaimozhi Mandapam, there was the grand golu of all Azhwargal and Acharyas and in the centre was Lord Parthasarathi.  Divyaprabandha goshti started around 0500 pm  ~ the pasurams forming part of the Moondravathu Aayiram, known as Iyarpa : Muthal Thiruvanthathi,   Irendam Thiruvanthathi, Moondram Thiruvanthathi, Nanmugan Thiruvanthathi, Thiruvirutham, Thiruvasiriyam, Periya Thiruvanthathi, Thiruvezhuk koorrirukkai, Siriya Thirumadal, Periya Thirumadal and Iramanuja Noorranthathi [also known as Prabanna Gayathri] of Thiruvarangathu Amuthanar were all rendered.

At Thirukachi, understand that this is slightly different – the day after culmination of Irapathu, ‘aadhi antham’ of Iyarpa and a day later it is Iyarpa Sarrumurai at Kannadi mandapam.  For the bakthas, it is great to have darshan of Azhwargal, Acharyargal and Perumal at one place ~ and for this, Battars and Sripadham thangigal have a great role. 

Here are couple of photos of Thirukachi Iyarpa Sarrumurai (all credit to my friend Sri VN Kesavabashyam – the last photo is that of Sri Kurathazhwan being taken in purappadu by young Sripadham thangis – one among them is the son of the VN Kb – a great sight to behold exhibiting the spirit and involvement of children at this age and equivalent credit goes to their parents who initiates them at the youngest age …. Vazhi Ethirajan Thiruvadigal; valarga Srivaishnavam.

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
