Kanchi Sri Varadaraja Perumal Temple Vaikasi Brahmotsavam – Day 4

Durmukhi Vaikasi Anusham (22nd May 2016) was the fourth day of Vaikasi Brahmotsavam at Kanchi Varadaraja Perumal koil. At 5.00 a.m. Varadan and His Consorts were brought to the vahana mandapam. They got ready in an hour’s time and Perumal was seated with one Foot hanging and the other folded on the huge silver Sesha vahanam. He was flanked on either side by Sridevi and Bhudevi. When Perumal was behind the screen He listened to the beautiful notes of instrumental music played by the band. Devotees waiting to have darsan were soothed by the music and a little boy about 2 years stood near them and danced.
Perumal’s Tirukaram (hand) pointed to His Feet indicating That Redemption is possible if we surrender at His Feet. For a prappana the Tirukolam of Paramapadanathan presented a picture of their final Destination.
