Maha Sivaratri Celebrations in Kopay

The Sri Subramuniya Kottam organized the Maha Sivaratri celebration this year. The celebrations began on the morning before the great night of Lord Siva. Devotees assembled at the Katpaga Pillaiyar Temple in Kopay at 8:30 am for puja.

After the puja, devotees carried paal kudam (milk pots) with the sacred bilva leaves in a procession lead by a Naathaswaram and Thavil musical ensemble to the Sri Shanti Lingam temple.

The devotee’s paal kudams were used for the abhishekam of Sri Shanti Lingam which Gurudeva had installed.

The Sivachariyas have performed a Homam and Abhishekam to Sri Shanthi Lingam.

The ceremonies ended at 12:30 pm. After that the prasadam was served to all the devotees. Then pujas resumed again in the evening, all through the night until early next morning.
