மயக்கினான்றன் மன்னுசோதி : Sri Azhagiya Singar Thavana Uthsavam 2019

மயக்கினான்றன் மன்னுசோதி : Sri Azhagiya Singar Venugopala Thirukolam 2017

Thavana Uthsavam is now on at Thiruvallikkeni and today 26.3.2019  is day 3 – the concluding day of the Uthsavam for Sri Azhagiya Singar.  In what could be the shortest of the purappadu – one gets the greatest opportunity of worshipping Him in close quarters.

In this divyadesam, Lord Narasimha is in Yogic posture as Yoga Narasimha and the Uthsavar is the most beautiful Thelliya Singar, who is all grace.  This morning, we had the fortune of having His darshan as He came in procession to Thavana Uthsava bungalow.  At Thavana Uthsava bungalow, Perumal has thirumanjanam and thence rest.   With the onset of summer, Perumal takes rest under the roof made of dhavanam (Tamil: தவனம்) [Artemisia pallens] – an aromatic herb.  In the evening there will be purappadu inside the bungalow and thereafter periyamada veethi purappadu back to the sannathi. 

For us Lord Sriman Narayana manifests in many forms – He is simple, makes Himself available to us – we cry Gopala – it means ‘the one who tends to cow’.  Divinity can easily be seen in great ascetics, Kings, and many other ways – our Lord is seen as cowherd too. In Gokul, as He grew the cows were so happy. He is the master of the Universe and of all arts – He is Venugopalan  – one who enchants people with his flute.  This is the thirukolam on day 3 of Azhagiya Singar thavana uthsavam ~ the photo here is of 2017

 உயக்கொள்மேக வண்ணன்நண்ணி  என்னிலாய தன்னுளே
மயக்கினான்றன் மன்னுசோதி

Blessed are  those who could have darshan of Lord Azhagiya Singa as Sri Venugopala ~ that blemishless hue of His  enchanted His bakthas and swept all  to His divine feet.  Here are some photos of the morning purappadu.
