Dear Sri RanganAtha BhakthAs:

It is almost like Yesterday . The VadihikAgnis
were glowing in the three Kuntams at YaagasAla.
Final PoorNaahUthi was completed. Final worship was 
performed at The Nava Padhma MaNDalam . The 8 priests 
placed the Silver kalasams on their heads on their SummAdus .
Their mouths were covered with Vasthrams . They 
were lifted gently up by the cherry picker amidst 
the sprinkles from heaven and One by One the consecrated 
waters from the Silver Kumbhams were poured on the Individual 
vimAnams over the 8 Sannidhis .

The PraNavAkAra VimAnam of Lord RanganAtha was 
the First VimAnam to be consecrated with the sacred waters .
Garuda BhagavAn's VimAnam was the last one to be consecrated.
Flowers came down from the heavens and the MahA SamprOkshaNam
was completed thus on May 27 in front of hundreds 
of delighted Sri RanganAtha BhakthAs.

Next day , the MandalAbhishEka Uthsavam started 
and eight priests performed AbhishEkam and 
AarAdhanam every day thereafter strictly according to
