I was in Thiruvarur couple of days back and was accompanied by a local person (my friend’s father-in-law), who was kind enough to help me with getting darshan of swami and ambal..When we approached the tank, I went ahead and was about to put my feet into the tank. He stopped me and taught me how to do it in a proper way.
- Do a self-prokshanam
- Do a namaskaram to the holy water
- Take handful of water and pour it on the steps
- Wet your feet by keeping them on top of the water you poured it on the steps
- Finally, put your feet in the water
I am sure many of you know this. As always, sharing whatever I learnt today 🙂
What a fantastic temple it is! It reminded me of Kasi as you can see shivalingams everywhere inside the temple. Temple that is so important for both swami and ambal. Ambal is sitting in a very unique yoga pose.
