Bishma Ekadasi At Kanchi Sri Devarajaswami Temple



On January 20th 2016, Thai Bishma Ekadasi took place at Kanchi Sri Devarajaswami Temple in a grand manner. Sri Perumal along with His Consorts had beautiful alangaram followed by Thiruveethi Purappadu. Grand satrumurai and sevakalam took place with arulicheyal and Parayana Ghosti. Thousands of devotees thronged in the Thai Bishma Ekadasi and received the blessings of Divyadampathis. Later Theetham, satari and prasadham was distributed to the devotees. shrI ViShNu sahasranAma (ViShNu’s thousand names) is a popular stotra consisting of 108 verses (shloka-s) [excluding the preamble and the end prayers]. This was recited by bhIShma in the ithihAsa (ancientepic) mahabhArata. bhIShma was defeated by arjuna and was lying in his arrow bed (shara-talpa), waiting for the last moment. Lord KR^iShNa unfolds himself into universal form (vishvarUpam) and it is then bhIShma who recites this sacred hymn. bhIShma advised everyone to pray to the ultimate Lord (parabrahmam) to get rid of all the sorrow in one’s life. Many teachers (AcAryas) have written commentaries that lean towards their own philosophical views.
