1st DAY NIGHT : INDRA'S GIFT

On the stormy turbulent day, when Vrindavan was almost marooned in the anger of Indra, the little insignificant looking fellow called Krishna lifted a huge mountain and protected life , both human and cattle.That eventful day became the coronation of the Lord of the Universe as the Lord of cattle, as the Lord of the common man "GOVINDA PATTABHISEKAM". The children of Gurukulam wanted to gift the Lord something for such an eventful coronation. They wanted to do what Indra had missed. Gift the Lord Indra Vimanam, a cute vehicle for the Lord.

2nd DAY NIGHT : AN IMITATION

While we try imitating our friends, TV personalities, our Lord Srimannarayana does something peculiar. He tries to dress up like SriMahalakshmi and imitate her manners. Though very ambitious a task,nevertheless, he does need credit for trying to imitate Loka-Maata !

3rd DAY MORNING: TO A BHAKTHA'S HOUSE

The third day morning, SriKasturi Rangan and his chirpy youthful entourage decide to move out of the Thiruveedhis to the house of a Bhaktha for Ubhayam. The Lord was received with great excitement by the whole colony!

3rd DAY MORNING

4th DAY NIGHT: ON THE LORD OF THE SKY

It is detailed that when the Lord descended to save SriGajendra from the clutches of the Crocodile, the Lord's anxiety was far more than during the gigantic work of creation. Hair unkempt, ornaments distastefully worn,inelegantly dressed. That was how He looked. And yet, despite forgetting so many essentials, the Lord did not deny Shri Garuda his kainkaryam. Was SriGaruda so indispensable to Perumal? No. Perumal was so indispensable to SriGaruda ! and knowing the heart of the Bhaktha well, the Lord gave him his kainkaryam though other formalities weredispensed with during this emergency. The Lord on SriGaruda.

4th DAY NIGHT

Special Dish for Perumal : Amruthakalasham ( a Jaggery sweet)

5th DAY NIGHT: THE TRUE SCHOLAR

As the son of the most valiant and influential Emperor Dasharatha, Lord Rama knew many men of intellectual excellence and scholarship. But it was on that eventful meeting atop the Rishyamukha parvatham the Lord knew who a true scholar was. Mesmerized by the eloquence of SriHanuman in disguise, the Lord poured praise on the NavaVyakarana Pandithar ( master of 9 grammatical sastras). To SriRama, Hanuman epitomizes a flawless Personality. The Lord on SriHanumantha Vaahanam.

5th DAY NIGHT

Special dish for Perumal : Bananas
