Dear Sri Chakravarthy:

Lord VaradarAjA had appeared on Hastha 
Nakshathram.BrahmA requested Him to stay as
an archA mUrthy on that  day .That is why 
Hastha Nakshathram is recognized as His asterism.

At the end of the AsvamEdha Yagam performed
by BrahmA , on that Chitthirai Sukla Paksha 
Chathurdasi thithi , on that Sunday morning ,
Lord VaradarAjA appeared under PuNyakOti 
VimAnam out of the Yaaga kuNtam with the effulgence of 
1000 crores of AadithyAs. 

Swami Desikan celebrates the avathAram and the glories
of the Lord of Kaanchi in his prabhandham
known as "Meyviratha Maanmiyam".

Best Wishes,
