Sri Amudhan SamprOkshanam and ChAthur mAsya sankalpam - Part 3

On the  last day, the city was cordoned and only selected few 100
VIPs were allowed to go inside the temple through metal detectors
to witness the samprOkshanm due to security reasons. Ofcourse all
the previous day's events and this as well was covered live on TV.
adiyEn went with my entire family who had come  from  outstations
as well to the foot of the vaideeka vimAnam on  top of the temple
at 6:50 Am itself. adiyEn had atlest 50 special entry  passes and
gave it to many in Sri sannithi  shishyALs and friends  as  well.
After the last pooranAhuthi the kumbams came  with mEla thAlam in
a procession with perumAL and  thAyar.  Srimadh  Azhagiya  Singar
presided this and went with perumaL and thAyAr. The kumbams alone
came to first deck with heavy security. It  is customary that Sri
Vaishnava AchAryALs won't come to a dhaLam  or  1st floor that is
above perumAL ie.  they put  their  feet on  a floor  where  ever
perumAL is there.  Srimadh Azhagiya  Singar and   Sri Amudhan and
thAyar went around to "thoo nilA  muRRAm" (now  everyone may have
realised the importace as to why adiyEn  named  the entire series
after this prAhAram) and  stayed  their   in  front  of Sri ANDAL
sannithi.  While   Sri   Amuthan   and  Sri  kOmaLa witnessed the
samprOkshanam  in  simha lagnam,  Srimadh  Azhagiaya  Singar  was
constantly  having  the  dharshan  of both  the  overjoyed  divya
dampathis and as well blessed the samprOkshanam. Due to his mercy,
adiyEn received a very special blessing from HIS Holiness Srimadh
Azhagiya singar, in the afternoon, just after  the  samprOkshanam
was performed.

The  same  night  Sri Amudhan's  first  ursavam started in a very
grand way after  6  years. Sri Garuda sEvai was conducted for Sri
Amudhan  Sri  ChakratthAzhwAr  and Sri Ramar in a spectacular way.
Despite   a   hectic   morning   schedule  with    samprOkshanam,
Srimadh Azhagiya Singar graced the occasion eventhough it was well
past midnight.

	Sravana puRappAdu was done the very next day  ie  Srvanam
day ie very next day after samprOkshana,   Sri  Amuthan's  sadAri
came in a procession circling the  poRRAmaRai  pushkarani and  to
near the local  Sri AH  muth  and  full  mariyAdhai and upasArams
were rendered  to  Jeer  by  Sri Amudhan  sannithi ArchagALs  and
kainkaryabarALs  who  were  bringing  Sri  Jeer  to invite him to
the temple for the mangalA sAsanam.  Srimadh  Azhagiya Singar did
mangaLA saAsanam of Sri kOmaLa valli  thAyAr, Sri Amuthan,  Swami
dEsikan,  Sri  Lakshmi  nrusimhar  in  local  Sri AHmuth, and Sri
Udayvar kOil. As per Srimadh Azhagiya Singar's  niyamanam  adiyEn
followed  him.
