Ramayana Sapthaham




The week long Sapthaham  started as planned, by 10 am with Ma. Lakshmi Didi's opening words. This year for the first time we are having the Ramayana Sapthaham  unlike the usual  Bhagavatha Sapthaham.








Following Didi's words Swamiji Ayyapadas who was the Secretary of Kshetra Samrakshana Samithi, addressed the gathering and highlighted upon the need of the hour to gather, understand and consolidate our samskaras and the perpetual wisdom from our puranas and granthas.







The Sapthaham formally got to a start with Sri. A K B Nair, Yagna Acharayan accepting a copy of the Ramayana from Swamiji  Ayyappadas. 





Aramana Karat Balagangadharan Nair popularly known as  Sri. A. K. B. Nair is a renowned scholar and the first Acharya to introduce the concept of Ramayana Sapthaham. Smt. Anandavally Angepat  wife of Sri. Nair will assist in the rendering of Ramayanam.  Sri O. C. Govindan Nambuthiri  will perform the Puja.



The bronze idols of Sri Rama and Lakshmana were kept at the Ganapathi Temple awaiting the auspicious time when the idols would be carried to the yagna vedi.





Around 12 noon it was time for the agamanam of Sri Rama and Lakshmana to the yagna vedi. With the rendering of nadaswaram in the background and chantings of Hare Rama,  and led by Ma. Lakshmi Didi the small group with lighted diyas and thalam welcomed and accompanied Lord Rama and Lakshmana to the yagna vedi.
