It's the second day of our major consecration of the Nandi Mandapam, Bali Pitham and Kodimaram, full of intense spiritual power. Three priests working and chanting together have empowered the yagasala and drawn us close to the inner worlds as only the Sivacharyas can.
Pujas go from morning to night, as the powers of the sun and moon and earth and devas and deities are invoked. One sweet puja was held under the holy Bilva tree next to Kadavul, a tree planted around the time (1984) when Nandi was installed. It has grown large and strong over the years and had its first Sivacharya blessing yesterday afternoon. Today it was full time in the Banyan Mandapam, as our slideshow describes. Tomorrow we are live-streaming the morning events which are the culmination of these three days. One of the charming little things that the priests mentioned is that here,at the Aadheenam, they have access to all the things needed for puja that must be imported when they perform puja elsewhere: bilva leaves, coconuts, durva grass, cow dung and more.
