Happy Vishu & Sarvadhari New Year!

Happy Vishu and Sarvadhari New Year to all of the viewers and readers of Thiruman.com and it’s other sites! This year, Vishu fell on 14th April 2008 which was also Sri Ramanavami.

During Vishu, it’s our custom to observe ‘Vishu Kani Kanal’ which means ‘first sight’ just after you wake up in the morning. You can read more about it from this site. In my home alter, Perumal (my principle deity) is usually decorated as Krishnan or any other alangaram that is depicted in Krishna avatharam. But this year, since Ramanavami also fell on the same day, the importance was given to Perumal to be decorated as Sri Raman. The particular alangaram I chose was Sri Ramar Pattabishegam.

This year’s ‘Kani Kanal’ was double special as our first sight was on both Sri Ramar and Sri Krishnan!. Here’s a picture of the decoration that was set up for Kani. It was really a sight to behold!!

Narayana Narayana!
