Sri Sankara Jayanthi Mahotsavam was celebrated at Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam Sri Viswanatha Swamy Devasthanam, Vanjiyur, Karaikal on 4th.
Earlier they built a lotus pond within this place and used 1008 lotus flowers to do archana to adi acharya on the jayanthi day. It is a great delight to our eyes and mind..They have similar plans to do for upcoming Mahaperiyava Jayanthi…..
In fact he was telling me how other places can build a pond like this and use this…Our gurukkal mama says that flowers from our garden used for puja is the best as opposed to buying from outside.
Even if the flowers are not used for puja purposes, people from outside buy them from the temple…I know Govindapuram thapovanam also has a pond with beautiful flowers etc – thanks to Shri Subbini for this…
Thanks to Shri BGS for sharing these lovely photos….
