    Thank you Chithra!

    Hi Chithra,
    Thanks for the write -up. We celebrate it with the traditional kali and kuttu with the offerings made to natarajar. You have given a lot of description about the importance of thiruvadarai and the slokas also.

    FYI my birth star is thiruvadarai :)


    Regards,
    Aishu

    Learning everyday.

    Dear Chitra,

    Apart from knowing a little about about Nataraja, I am not aware of the many things that you have enlightened me with in this posting of your's. This was really informative and interesting. I have only very vague memories of my father telling us the significances of various temples of the South and their stories. With passage of time, I have forgotten them. Enjoyed reading your post. Thank you. After reading, this one song keeps ringing in my ears!.....

    Dear Chithra,
    You are unbelievable. I have no other words to praise.
    The write up is superb. So much information. Five sabhais remind
    me of a song `Kanaka Sabhapathiku namaskaram pannadi penne`
    sung by Sirkali Govindarajan. Thanks a million.

    Dear ChitVish,

    Thanks again for the beautiful and crisp write-up on Thiruvadhirai. It falls on 3rd Jan right? I used to think Nellaiappar Kovil was called Tamarai sabhai, only now I know the correct pronounciation and meaning thanks to you.

    Once again, please keep up the great work in enlightening us. We don't know how we are going to repay you for all the spiritual help.!!

    Thanks
    Vidya

    My dear Vidya !

    Yes, this year, thiruvathirai falls on Wed 3 rd Jan. So do naivedyam with kaLi & kuzambu !
    Why ever think in terms of repayment ? Let us all enjoy this forum together, exchanging one's knowledge with the other, unconditionally !
    Love,
    Chithra.
