for ThiruviNNagarappan will start .
My sister is representing me there 
at the sannidhi of the divya dampathis .
 
On this sObhana muhUrtham , I hasten
to offer unto His lotus feet this 
Thirumanjanak Kattiyam from this 
distance and seek His blessings for 
one and all !May we have the good
fortune to read this Thirumanjanak Kattiyam
by the sannidhi adhyApaakam SwamigaL in person
during the forthcoming Kaisika DwAdasi 
Thotti Thirumanjanam for the Uthsavar,
Ponnappan and His divine consort, BhUmi DEvi .
