Dear Perumale,

Today is Panguni Uthiram, the day You are together with Thayaar. And the ideal ‘man’, Sri Ram, married Sita Piratti.

Adiyen is taking the liberty to quote Mrs. Geetha Vasudevan from the MudaliandanThirumaligaiSishyas yahoogroup about the significance of Panguni Uththiram.

Sreemathey Ramanujaya Namaha

Respected Bhagavatha Bandhus,

The Aadhi Bramhotsavam is celebrated grandly in Sri Rangam starts on Panguni Rohini (Perumal Thirunakshatram) and ends on Panguni Utthiram (Thayar Thirunakshtram) it is so special because

*Periya Pirattiyar Thirunakshtram

*Perumal & Thayar Serthi Sevai

*Sri Sita Rama Kalyanam

Periya Piratti Thirunakshatram_Panguni Uthiram

Periya Pirattiyaar Thirunakshatram

Thayar Perumal Serthi Sevai

Thayaar Perumal Serthi Sevai

Sita Ram wedding

Sri Ram - Sita Kalyanam

*Above all considering this as appropriate occasion Swamy Ramanuja surrendered before Divya Dampathis in serthi and submitted his famous Gadyatrayam (compromising Saranagathi Gadyam, Sri Ranga Gadyam and Sri Vaikunta Gadyam) – Here we must note Saranagathi Gadyam was delivered – The Prapatthi was done for the sake of our deliverance.

Please note Panguni Utthiram’s significance is also for

*Nanjeeyar Thirunakshtram *Kambanattu Alwar is said to have inaugurated his famous Kamba Ramayanam on this day @ Mettu Azhagiya Singar Sannadhi in Sri Rangam temple

Thus Panguni Utthiram attaches special importance to both Namperumal and Swamy Ramanuja, it is also heard to mark the tireless efforts of Swami Ramanuja’s walk to Thirukoshtiyoor, even today on Panguni Utthiram day, Namperumal is given 18 argyas, 18 padyas and all aradhana kramams 18 times (kindly correct me if adiyen is wrong)

Uyya Ore Vazhi Udayavar Thiruvadi !
