Posted in Alangarapriyan, Photo Gallery on April 27, 2008 by thirumandotcom

Day 6 alangaram in Singapore Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple is Gaja Vahanam. In this vahanam, Perumal is decorated as Sri Lakshmi Narayanan with Sri Bhu Devi. Likewise, I have done the same alangaram but with some minor changes. (i.e I have added Sangu & Chakaram and Sri Lakshmi’s right hand is on Perumal’s shoulder).

The pictures are now online and I hope you will enjoy them as much I did.

Divya Prabhandam CD Review

Posted in Devotional Music on April 22, 2008 by thirumandotcom

Recently, I acquired a copy of a music CD titled ‘Divya Prabhandam’. Unlike most of the Divya Prabhandam CDs, this is not sung in the usual paarayanam style but in a carnatic one instead. All the songs found in this CD are very melodious and of exceptional quality. 

Those who are interested to get a copy may email me ( I have used a track (Margazhi Thingal) from this CD in one of my videos. I am very grateful to Parandaman for allowing me to do this. Do listen to this song and I am very sure after doing so, you would want to purchase a copy of this CD. My favourites are, Margazhi Thingal and Uzhuvathor Padaiyum.

Here is the CD cover, contents and an introduction to the songs.

Alangarapriyan – Brahmothsavam 2008 Picture Gallery – Day 5

Posted in Alangarapriyan, Photo Gallery on April 18, 2008 by thirumandotcom

The day 5 alangaram which is Hanumantha Vahanam is now online!. This is my first time that I have done this sort of sathupadi for Sri Srinivasa Perumal on Hanumantha Vahanam. The traditional way of doing this in the Singapore Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple would be to hang the right feet down the shoulder of Hanuman and cross the left leg over Hanuman’s head.

I have not come across this type of sathupadi done in any temples. After doing this alangaram, I had this sence of great satisfaction that Sri Ramar seems to be very comfortable on the shoulders of his greatest baktha!

I hope you will enjoy this alangaram as much I did!.

If you would like to donate to this cause, please contact Shri C.Ramachandran, President, Sri Adhinayaga Perumal Kainkarya Sabha, Gopurapatti – Mobile number (+91) 98424-91322 .
