The 76th Aradhana of Siddhamalli Periyavaa
was celebrated at His Adishtanam in Siddhamalli on 7th November
2009 amongst chanting of Sri Rudra Parayanam, Chamakam and other Upanishads by Vedic
A large gathering of devotees and His descendants were present
for this function to seek His Holy Blessings. The function was conducted in a grand manner. This Aradhana
was followed by a sumptuous lunch for all the devotees and the village people who
had come for the function.
A lecture on Sri Yatheendraal tilted "Divya Charithram"
was rendered by Shri "Jyothisharatna" Raman, the Great Grandson of Sri Subramania Sastrigal [Yatheendraal]
on the previous evening of the Aradhana. The "Pravachanam" was presented in an immaculate manner, bringing
out the rare and important moments in the Mahaan's life in a vivid manner, which kept all the devotees gathered, glued to
their seats till the very end. Excellent presentation indeed!
A word of appreciation/praise should be mentioned here to Vadhyar
Kannan of Kumbakkonam, who ably handled the entire proceedings single-handed,
in making the Aradhana a grand success!
Inspite of the incessant rains in entire Tamilnadu, I
must point out here that the rains literally stopped in Siddhamalli village, whilestart to finish
of performing the said Aradhana. Once the Aradhana was over, the rains started pouring heavily!! It
is indeed the Blessings of "Samadeeshwarar" which could keep the rains away till His Aradhana
While viewing the pictures, I would request you all to see carefully
the photo pertaining to the "veebhuthi abhisekam", [taken from my camera], wherein, you
can notice a "Jyothi" appearing from nowhere- behind the "Siva Lingam"
on the Adishtanam.
On seeing this miracle, I should mention here that the
Mahaan Himself has given us Darshan in the form of "Jyothi", bestowing
His Blessings. This shows that "the Mahaan is still alive and is surely a strong guiding force for all of
[The "Jyothi can be
seen clearly in the above photo]
This is nothing but the"Power"
and "Mahimai" of this Great Mahaan!
It is also to be noted that one's wishes/prayers
at this Adhistanam is answered and fulfilled to the best of the satisfaction of the devotees. So
a visit to His Adishtanam is a must for all the people who wish to get their wishes/prayers
I have added below an embedded slide-show
