Purattasi Ekadasi Purappadu # Thiruvallikkeni 2017

Purattasi Ekadasi Purappadu # Thiruvallikkeni 2017

On 15th Oct 2o17 (Sunday) it was Ekadesi and Sri Parthasarathi had periya mada veethi purappadu. 

பேயாழ்வாரின் பக்தி சுரக்கும் வார்த்தைகளில் இங்கே இன்னொரு பாசுரம் :

பொலிந்திருண்ட கார்வானில் மின்னேபோல் தோன்றி,*
மலிந்து திருவிருந்த மார்வன், - பொலிந்த*
கருடன்மேல் கொண்ட கரியான் கழலே, *
தெருடன்மேல் கண்டாய் தெளி.*

Azhwar likens the lightning appearing clear on dark rain cloud – to  the divine appearance of Sriman Narayana with Sri Lakshmi on His chest, seated resplendently on Garuda as mount.  Having seen the lotus feet through knowledge Alwar directs our hearts to fall and follow those divine feet, which alone can lead us to salvation. 

It was the blemishless Sriman Narayana ~ Sri Parthasarathi Perumal at Thiruvallikeni divyadesam on Ekadasi day in the month of Purattasi.  The thanga kedayam has been refurbished recently by the Thennacharya Sripadham thangigal sabha and today’s  was the first purappadu in the new kedayam. 

Obviously the beauty of our Emperuman  far outshone  the golden glade and it was a wonderful darshan for all of us in Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam.  It was exceptional as Sri Parthasarathi adorned sengol and Pandian kondai, as the Supreme Emperor akin to Numperumal – it was indeed a sight to behold.   Here are some photos taken during today’s purappadu.
