Brahmothsavam From 20-Feb-18 to 01-Mar-18
By the grace of Ambal Brahannayaki samedha Lord Brahadeeswara, benign blessings of His Holiness Maha Periyava, Sri Matam Periyavas, the Maha Kumbhabhishekam of the Gangai Konda Chozhapuram Ambal Brahannayaki Sameda Lord Brahadeeswara temple was performed strictly as per Aagama sastras, a year back on 2nd February 2017, nearly after a period of 85 years. All bhakthas spread over all different continents, Sri Kanchi Matam devotees along with local people and elites joined to perform the Maha Kumbhabhishekam.
Every one of us know that Annabhishekam , initiated and instructed by H H Mahaperiava is performed year after year uninterruptedly from 1985 onwards in this temple. Many articles covering all these were published at different times in our “Sage of Kanchi”, Kanchi Periyava forum, etc.
Dwajasthambam (Kodimaram) was erected during kumbhabhishekam in this temple nearly after 400 to 450 years . As per Aagama sastras , it is necessary that Brahmotsavam is to be performed every year for 10 to 12 days to such temples.
Recently Rajatha bhandanam (adoring Peetam of Swamy and Ambal) was also done to Swamy and Ambal with approximately 16 kgs of silver before Sammasrabhishekam was performed. Sammasrabhishekam is to be performed every year for 12 years after which next Maha Kumbhabhishekam is to to be done.
The Brahmotsavam starts with grama (village) Devatha pujas for two days on 18 th and 19 th February’18, followed by 10 days Brahmotsavam, Swamy, Ambal and other deities Nagarvalam, on different Vahanas, etc. as per Aagama sastras completed with final day Thirthavari utsavam.
As of date there is no record to show that Brahmotsavam was conducted to this temple, which probably were there centuries ago. Being such a BIG TEMPLE , dear to the heart of H H Mahaswamy, we are blessed to start as an Angam of dwajas, 10 days brahmothsavam starting from 20/2/18 with KODIYETRAM and ending with Theerthavari on 01 st March ‘18.
Annabhishekam committee and other Sri Kanchi Matam devotee groups also participate with first day and many days utsavams along with other bhakthas from different places.
We invite all devotees to participate physically and probably with valuable contributions at least few days during this festival . It is our privilege to share all details with you . In case you require further information please do call any one us ,whose phone numbers and E Mail Id’s are given below.
Let us all make this a great event, a beautiful “World heritage monument temple” under UNESCO and HR&CE , identified by our HH Mahaperiava.
