2017 Thiru Kalyana Mahotsavam celebrated on May 10, 2017

posted May 10, 2017, 9:40 PM by Vaduvur Rajesh   [ updated May 11, 2017, 4:37 AM ]


Thiru Kalyana Mahotsavam was celebrated at Vaduvur Kothandaramaswamy temple on May 09 and 10, 2017 through Vaduvur Sri Ramar Kalyana Uthsava Trust.  The event includes
  • Janavasam on May 09 evening - Sri Ramar on Yaanai Vahanam (elephant) - The word is probably derived from "janavasa" which in Sanskrit means an assembly or place fit for all people to live. Probably the word was later used in Tamil Nadu as the place where the bridegroom and his people were accommodated on the eve of marriage. Jana i.asam is now used in the sense of the procession in which the groom is taken through the streets on the eve of the wedding. It is equivalent to North Indian practice of Baraat 
  • Kalyanotsavam of Divya Thambathi on May 10 morning - Sita represents the female (Prakriti) while Rama, represents the male or the 'Purusha'. The priests perform marriage of Lord Rama and Sita in the presence of large gatherings of devotees, The wedding cermony is held amidst recitation of the vedic mantras and pronouncing the family pedigree of the brides and bridegroom.
  • The evening event includes Thiru Veedhi Ula (Purapadu or procession) in a special vahanam

Sri Ramanavami Brahmotsavam is celebrated at Vaduvur Sri Kothandaramaswamy Temple from Apr 4 - Apr 13, 2017.  
Day 6 of Vaduvur Sri Ramanavami Brahmotsavam celebrated on Apr 9, 2017 
  • Morning - Night - Nagar Valam (Thiruveedhi Utsvam); Late night  - Mohana Alankaram
As per Sri Vaduvur Govindan
Morning - Night: Being Bhaktavatsalam, Lord Rama along with Sita Pirati (Divya Thambathi) started his visit (Veedhi Ula) at 6:30AM to personally provide darshan to every bhaktas (devotees) house in the Vaduvur Village (37 streets) and returned back at around 10:00PM

Late Night: When Devas and asuras started churning with mount Mandara with snake Vasuki as the rope. Maha Lakshmi, Kaustubha ratnam, Kamadhenu, Kalpavriksham, Sharangam and various other celestial items emerged. Finally the nectar of immortality, Amirtham, emerged and immediately devas and asuras started fighting for its passion. 
Maha Vishnu took to form a lady (Mohini), who was the most beautiful lady that the assembled gods, devas and asuras have ever seen. Mohini distributed the Amirtham to devas, who then vanquished the asuras. The enigmatic beauty of Vaduvur Rama is further enhanced by HIS Mohana Alankaram

As per Sri Vaduvur Govindan,
The excitement in Hanuman face, looks as if he has found something which he was searching for very long time. What it looks like is as if Hanuman is ready to take to the sky with Lord Rama on his shoulder to meet Sita Pirati, instead of constructing bridges and taking everyone to Lanka

2017 Sri Ramanavami Brahmotsvam - Day 4 - Garuda Sevai, Palakku Balarama Sevai

Sri Ramanavami Brahmotsavam is celebrated at Vaduvur Sri Kothandaramaswamy Temple from Apr 4 - Apr 13, 2017

Day 4 of Vaduvur Sri Ramanavami Brahmotsavam celebrated on Apr 7, 2017 

As per Sri Vaduvur Govindan, "Vedathma Vihageswaraha" (Lord Garuda is Veda swaroopam). Veda mentions the Glory of Lord Garuda in the following stotra
    Sukarnosi Garuthmaan........... which says each part of Veda mentioned below describes Lord Garuda 
      • "Trivith Saama" - is head of Garuda
      • "Gayathram Saama" - is eyes of Garuda
      • "Sthomam Saama" - is Aathma of Garuda
      • "Vaama Devyam" - is body of Garuda
      • "Brigathu and Rathantharam" - is wings of Garuda
      • "Yagna Yagniyam" - is tail of Garuda
      • All the chandhas of Veda are the part of Garuda's body
                    Hence the description is apt to call Lord Garuda as "Vedathma Vihageswaraha".
