Day 9 Morning - Sri Parthasarathi Brahmothsava Sevai 2016

Today 8th Feb 2016   is the 9th day of Sri Parthasarathi Brahmothsavam – Theerthavari.    I had posted about the symbolic search whence Perumal Himself comes  incognito, covered with ‘sheets’ (போர்வைகள்).

It is an exceptional day as the devotee can have so much varied  darshan – first Aelmel pallakku purappadu covered with many sheets, then for a brief while, then for a few minutes after Porvai kalaithal vaibuam,  Thirmeni of the Perumal with a single strand jasmine garland; then Perumal has some garlands – at vahana mantap, Perumal comes out of the Pallakku, has purappadu in Tholukku Iniyiaan – at entrance of temple,  there would be ‘ mattaiyadi’ – the ‘pranaya kalaham’ arising out of the celestial bonds between ‘Thayar and Perumal’  with Ubaya Nachimar and Perumal engrossed in wordy duel.

After this in the afternoon is the ‘ Theerthavari ‘ at Thiruvadi kovil.  Here are some photos showing – Perumal with Porvai, immediately after porvai kalaithal, with garlands, purappadu in Tholukku Iniyan – all on day 9.

Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.
