ThiruvempAvai AND ThiruvAdhirai Abisekam (Arudraa Dharshanam)
27th Dec 2014 to 5th Jan 2015
Thiruvaadhirai (Arudraa Dharshanam ): 5 Jan 2015.
Saint Manika Vaasar, one of the four great Shiva Bhakta...out of his immense love towards Lord Siva has given twenty nectar like hymns named ThiruvempAvai. Seekers who get swayed by many ripples of the world would certainly find themselves back in the path towards the Absolute...as chanting these hymns awakens oneself from the deep sleep of mAya - the illusion. Singing these songs with true devotion towards the Three eyed Lord would certainly bring the blessings of the beginning and endless jyoti.
27th Dec 2014 to 5th Jan 2015, Mandir will open @ 8.30am followed by ThiruvempAvai Chanting, Deeparathanai
