Dept of Post releases special cover on Athi Varadhar Vaibhavam 2019

Now all roads, all thoughts, every action lead to Thirukachi ~ devotees in  lakhs are thronging Kanchi every day to have darshan of Athigiri Perumal.  Sri Athigiri Arulalar – the present thirumeni now worshipped was the one worshipped by our Acaryas and our fore-fathers many many years ago and that is the sole reason for us to go near Him and have His darshan.

அனைத்துக்கும் அதிபதியாய் நிற்பார் வந்தார்
தினைத் தனையும் திருமகளை விடாதார் வந்தார்
தேசு ஒத்தார் மிக்காரும் இல்லார் வந்தார்
நினைக்க நமக்கு இன் அறிவு தந்தார் வந்தார்
… …
அத்திகிரி அருளாளப் பெருமாள் வந்தார்
ஆனை பரி தேரின் மேல் அழகர் வந்தார்
கச்சி தனில் கண் கொடுக்கும் பெருமாள் வந்தார்
கருத வரம் தரும் தெய்வப் பெருமாள் வந்தார்
~  சுவாமி தேசிகர் தமது திருச்சின்னமாலை

Governor Banwarilal Purohit released a special cover and special cancellation on Athi Varadar on Thursday. [18.7.2019].  The Tamil Nadu Postal Circle has brought out this special cover to commemorate the ‘Athi Varadar Festival 2019’ in Kancheepuram based on a proposal from the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department. A total of 1,000 special covers have been printed with special UV printing and each cover is priced at 50.

The Department of Posts has also printed one lakh non-UV special covers. These covers are available at 20 each at the Anna Road Head Post Office Philately Bureau as well as at the special stalls, which have already been put up near the Devarajaswami Temple at Kancheepuram. Ganga Jal bottles (250 ml sourced at Gangotri at 30 per bottle) have also been made available for sale for the devotees visiting the temple for darshan.

A collage of the front and back of the cover is posted here.
