over, Prasadams like Sarkaraipongal, Panchamirtham, Pottukadalai Sarkarai , [a favourite of Yatheendraal], were distributed
to the bakhthas / devotees assembled for the Aradhana. The function commenced by 9 A.M and came to a close at
around 12 Noon. The Vedic Scholars and pundits were duly honoured and were offered Sambavanai and Vasthrams. This was
followed by a sumptuous meal for all the people gathered for the Aradhana.
The powers of the Mahaan was once again felt this year....no sooner the Puja started at the Adhishtanam,
there was a down-pour of rain which was very unusual, as the skies till then was very clear and sunny! Seeing this,
all the Bakthas / devotees gathered at the Adhistanam could definitely experience and feel the Greatness of this Mahaan.

and was a grand success!
