By the anugraham of 46th Srimadh Azhagiyasingar the 73rd Aradhana Mahotsavam of Sri Laksmi Nrisimha Sathakopa Yatheendra Mahadesikan (41st Srimadh Azhagiasingar – Karakurachi Azhagiyasingar) commenced today 26.10.2014 at 3.30 P.M. at Swami’s Brindavan near Dasavatharan Sannidhi.
Aradhanam refers to the thithi in which a sanyasi attains Paramapadaprapthi. 4Ist Srimadh Azhagyiasingar ‘s aradhanam falls on Aippasi Sukla Panchami day. This year this thithi corrresponds to 28.10.2014.Since 41st Srimadh Azhagiyasingar ascended to Paramapadam at SriRangam His Brindavanam is in SriRangam Dasavatharan Sannidhi. 41st Srimadh Azhagiyasingar had His Brindavanam constructed during His lifetime going to the extent of sitting inside a basket and descending inside the hole, planning the sannidhi that would be built etc. The Brindavanam we see today was designed by Srimadh Azhagiyasingar Himself.
His poorvashrama descendants religiously and meticulously perform Srimadh Azhagiyasingar’s aradhanam every year.Thiruvaymozhi Parayanam started at 41st SrimadhAzhagiasingar’s Brindavanam.
It was a treat to the ears to hear many swamis sonorously chanting Thiruvaymozhi (3 cetums were covered today) while Sama Vedam chanting could be heard alongside. Thiruvaymozhi is Tamil equivalent of Sama Vedam . Sama Vedam chanting is called Sama Ganam . Infact music originated from The Sama chants. After Thiruvaymozhi Swami Desikan’s Amrutha Ranjani was recited followed by Adhivan Sathokapan Swami Adaikalaipatthu. Satrumurai took place at the Brindavanam followed by Perumal Theertham and SriSathari.Prasada distribution (Kesari) took place at Dasavathara sannidhi.
