Vaikunta Ekadasi Peruvizha At Thirucherai Saranathan Divya Desam


Adyayana Utsavam is being celebrated grandly at Thirucherai Sri Saranathan Sannidhi since December 3, 2013 with the commencement 0f Pagal Pathu. Perumal will give sevai in Nachiyar Thirukolam on the eve of Vaikunta Ekadasi on December 12, 2013. Vaikunta Ekadasi will be celebrated on December 13, 2013 with purappadu for Perumal at 5 am and the opening of the Paramapada Vasal at 6 am. Irapatthu will be celebrated for the next ten days until December 22, 2013. Astikas in and around Kumbakonam and other areas may make it convenient to attend the utsavam and receive the blesings of the Divya Dampathis.

Located about 3 km South of Nachiyar Thirukkoil (about 15km off Kumbakonam) is the Saranaathan Temple in Thirucherai. This is part of the Krishnaaranya Kshetram and is between Nachiyaar Thirukkoil and ThiruKannamangai Divya Desams. Brahmma who wanted to save the Vedas tried to preserve its contents in a mud pot. Every time, he tried making the pot, it broke down. He looked up to Perumal for solution and was asked to go Thirucherai to collect the sand for the making of the pot.

The following is the detailed pathrigai following by some photographs taken during the previous year’s utsavam…
