Back in #Srirangam, today is the annual Jyeshta Abhishekam for Lord Ranganatha! Once a year, the Moola Sthanam gets a traditional purification in one of the most ancient methods. Will try to do a thread if possible!

Wish I could attend it personally!

Missing it! Sigh! 🙏😓 Image
It is a day long affair! The process of which would have begun few weeks ago! First they prepare the Thailam. But more about that later. As for today, early morning the temple elephant goes to take a dip in the Kaveri, as usual. No Vishwaroopam darshanam today.
The Sthalathars, Sthanikars, Maniyakarars of the temple recieve a special Mariyadhai first. They carry special pots to the Kaveri. 28 silver pots and one gold pot. A long procession goes from the temple to the Amma Mandapam. With the Nagaswaram and Thavil Melam.

🙏🤩🙏🤩🙏 Image

The annual #Panguni Utsavams have commenced in #Srirangam. Yesterday evening, the Purappadu of Viswaksenar happened. He goes around the Maada veedhis to inspect if everything is ok. Today onwards Namperumal with Ubhaya Nachiyar is taken in a procession.

Will do a thread. 😀🙏
The dreaded Chniese Vrius had attacked just before the Panguni Utsavams last time. And for two years, everything was conducted within the temple premises. The residents of Srirangam have been eagerly waiting for two years now!

Finally this year they are happening, like before!😀
Earlier this morning, before sunrise, the Dhwajaarohana Mahotsavam happened. Sharing images and videos as received.

#Elections are supposed to be about electing representations for framing legislations

However the geography behind delimitation which doesnt consider complex socio-economic conditions promote communal polarization leading to deterioration of Democractic values

Understanding Delmitation:

The constituency delimitation is based on population. and for last delineation exercise, 2001 population was used. Average population was calculated to be 270000 people per constituency

#Map shows Population spread in Tamil Nadu
To delineate which village/town comes under which constituency, some rules are followed

To achieve the avg population, officials start with headquarters for the constituencies in district & add villages/towns within same or neighbouring taluks(subdistricts) in same district

There are series of paintings, illustrating the story from Sriranga Mahathmiyam in the #Temple premises.

Sri Ranganatha was first worshiped by Brahma in Satyalok,on the banks of Viraja River. Brahma asked Surya Dev to perform regular pujas to the deity.

The deity with Ranga vimana was later given to Suryavanshi King Ikshvaku to worship in Ayodhya after his penance.Later Rama has gifted this to Vibishina after Coronation .Vibhishana proceeded to carry the deity south to Sri Lanka.

Amongst Vaishnava temples in Chola Country, only #Srirangam had the privilege of being celebrated by almost the entire Vijayalaya clan, except Arinjaya, Rajendra ii & VErarajendra!

A whopping 192 inscriptions recorded the contributions of Cholas, of which 83 belongs to Kulotunga
Interestingly, Kulotunga's inscriptions mention Moolavar Renganatha as Anantha Narayana & Utsavar as Azhagiya Manavaalan.

Nammazhwar's Thiruvaimozhi, Thondaradippodiyazhwar's Thiruppalliyezhuchi were recited before Ranganatha for the first time during Kulotunga's reign.

What TN Hindus must be worried most about is the way #HRCE endangering the antiquity and heritage value of Ancient Shrines built by kings Centuries ago, they are still standing taller against all Natural calamities!
Now we have lost 1000s of bronzes out of #HRCE's utter carelessness, and in many cases HRCE officials themselves have played a role in destroying our cultural identities.
We have over 35,000 inscriptions discovered in TN temples, which, comparatively, more in numbers many a times than what have been discovered so far in the rest of India combined, its a huge treasure, but we are losing all of them gradually to sand and water blasting methods.
