Chance of lifetime at Danvantri Peedam

Here is the chance of a lifetime: Devotees can do vibhoothi abhishekam for their favourite deity, Lord Karthigai Kumaran, at the Sri Danvantri Arogya Peedam, Walajapet, Vellore district, during the Aadi Karthigai festival on Friday, August 10, 2012.

Sri Muralidhara Swamigal, the founder of the peedam, has always believed in bringing God and his devotees closer. This vibhoothi abhishekam for Lord Muruga is only one example of such a plan.

A note from the peedam says that Aadi Krithigai is an energising occasion to rebuild your positive energy. It is an auspicious day to worship Lord Muruga and receive his blessings. Legend has it that Lord Muruga or Skanda was born as six different babies and it was Goddess Parvati who joined the six to create the powerful Muruga or Karthik, who is the commander of the army of the Devas. But before conjoining, the six different babies were looked after by six mothers – the six Karthigai stars - Karthigai Pengal.

The Murugan idol in the peedam is depicted as Karthigai Kumaran – the 4-foot stone idol sculpted by Loganathan Sthapathy of Mahabalipuram, shows the six foster mothers at the base of the idol, trying to feed the baby by showing the Sun, Moon, lotus, peacock, spear and a milk bowl.

The Swamigal has made arrangements for panchamirtha abishekam and vibhoothi abishekam, followed by alankaram, aradhanai, archanai, homam and mass prayer.

The Swamigal will allow devotees to personally perform the vibhoothi abishekam to Lord Karthigai Kumaran and gain positive energy.

The note invites all devotees to participate in the poojas and receive the blessings of Lord Karthigai Kumaran on Aadi Kirthigai.
