Sri Maha Lakshmi in ksheerabdi, Sitha Devi in Janakapuri, and Ranga Nayaki Tayar in Sri Rangam are all manifestations of the same divine mother, the personified compassion, the permanent resident of Sri Maha Vishnu’s (Narayana) heart!
Being the birth star of such graceful Sri Maha Lakshmi, this is the ONLY day that Sri Ranganattha Swami comes to Ranganayaki ammavar in Sri Rangam temple and spends time together. This divine union is what every one of us should meditate on and seek protection from. Today is therefore a great celebration! Ramanujacharya reached Sri Rangam temple on this day. Amazed at the festivities and celebration, he composed the beautiful Gadya Trayam:
- From the discourse of Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swami,
- 21st March 2019, Divya Saketham
This Gadya Trayam is till date sung in all 108 Divya Desams. Divya Sakthem also celebrated the event under the divine presence of Sri Chinna Jeeyar Swamiji. Enhancing the joy of Sri Maha Lakshmi’s birth, the entire campus was filled with precious and pious coloured water of turmeric and kunkum.
