Shastanga Namaskaram to all,
On the eigth day of the Brahmotsavam there is purappadu for our Varadar but he has Thotti Thirumanjanam which is a very sampadayic function.
As per shastharam, once we go out side we need to have a bath to a bath to get rid of the theetu. This is the reason our Varadar had his thirumanjanam out side the temple when the ther was completed on the seventh day. Eighth day event is a continuation of the seventh day event.
To restore the sanidhyam, thirumanjanam is
performed to our Devathirajan. All the holy rivers are invoked in a
silver gangalam (big size thotti) and our
Another very rare sight during this thirumanjanam is that Devathirajan would have the Urdhva Pundram prominently displayed. I would not take much of your time, cherish the beauty of our Perarulalan.
In my next mail adiyen would provide details about Guthurai
Vahanam and shall provide you details regarding Varadar’s favorite
thiruabharnam. Please pardon me if there are any mistakes.
