Irumudi Puja & Mandalam Conclusion 2015

With the grace and blessings of Swami Ayyappa, in coordination with SVCC Temple Fremont, Ayyappa Samaaj successfully concluded the Mandala Vratha for scores of Deekshadharis on Saturday December 26, 2015. The Kettu Nirakkal started at 7AM and the Deekshadharis (Adults and children alike) carried the Irumudi with resounding Sarana Gosham and placed them at His feet for a blissful Ashtotharam. This was followed by Irumudi Padayathra and concluded with the breaking of coconut to reenter His Sannidhanam. It was so divine to see so many young Malikapurams and Manikantans chanting the Saranams as they made their way around the temple at least 3 times braving the near freezing morning weather! Kanni Swamis placed the Sarams at Saramkuthi before concluding their Yatra,

The Ney from the Irumudi coconuts along with all the drives in the Irumudi Bags were quickly transferred to containers for the Abhishekam by several volunteers and the Abhishekam itself started to the loud Chanting of Rudram, Chamakam, Purusha Suktam, Durga Suktam and Sri Suktam by all the Priests and devotees led by Pandit Uma Shankar Dixit.

Swami Ayyappa then went on a procession atop the palanquin carried by all Deekshadharis dancing to the beats of Chenda Melam, and re-entered the Temple through the dazzling array of lamps lit for Thalapoli held by women and young girls on either side all the way to Pathinettu Padi. Namasankeerthanam, Ashtotharam and Chatur-Veda Parayanam soon followed, and all the Deekshadharis completed Mala Visarjanam to signify the conclusion of their Vratham which began on November 14.

Please checkout photos/videos of the event here and join our Makara Vilakku Weekend Event on Saturday January 16, 2016 at 3:30PM.
