Preparing for Ardra Darshanam

Aum Namah Sivaya

Tomorrow morning the Aadheenam celebrates Ardra Darshanam with a Homa and an elaborate abhishekam for Lord Nataraja in Kadavul Temple. Offerings for the abhishekam are being prepared and the Temple is being decorated. Monks from the Siddhidatta Kulam, along with Yajatadeva, spent an afternoon juicing citrus, hand-picked from our trees. This morning the silpis picked a huge bag of sacred bilva leaves to be offered as well. This afternoon monks prepared for the morning homa and hung a new festival flower curtain on the temple's ceiling.

    Wiki: I read that Ardra in western astronomy is the star Alpha Ori, also called Betelguese, located in the Orion constellation, rising in the east after sunset in January. It is a supergiant. To compare, if it were in our solar system the size would encompass the orbits of Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and the asteroid belt. In the near-infrared portion of the spectrum, it is the brightest object in the sky. Aum Namah Sivaya !
