Rama Samrajyam in Prema Samrajyam!
….The tradition continues in a great manner with all humility yet blossoming with fresh fragrance of Rama Bakthi and Guru Seva.
VAMSI KULA DHARMA RAMA SEVA..These were not mere expressions but each words came ALIVE here in this event. Even, as we fully believe that it is a futile exercise to describe or to unfold the events, we attempt it with full reverence as in these communication even a failure to bring full details will ultimately be downplayed by Sri Anna Bhaktas, the targeted audience for this narration.
This year Sri Ramanavmi celebration at Senganur provided the bhakths with unique experience of “Re- Living” those moments of very first Grand Ram Navmi at Ayodhya. The entire village turned out to be as Ayodhya as Sri Anna himself conducting every event and spending his valuable time minutely in all arrangements made.
Before we make a plunge in daily events between 26/3 to 30/3 we give brief list of people who were mainly responsible for the grand events. (Please forgive us if we inadvertently omitted some Bhagavathas/Persons)
This list is in addition from Sri Anna’s family members and relatives
Complete bhajan program was lead as usual by Tiruvisanallur, Sri.Ramakrishna Bhagavathar and group. They performed almost Non Stop Sampradaya Bhajans from 26/3 morning 6.00Am to 30/03 morning 6.30Am. Perhaps it is easier to attempt what they have not covered, as the list will be short, than to share all songs. To put it mildly it is BENCHMARK of Sathguru Swamigal’s Sampradaya Bhajans.
To enable our beloved bakthas to visualize these we wish to provide location details of major events.
|Location details||Event details|
|Periavanchan Pillai Maligai||29/3 Diyanamam and Pavvilambu Utsavam|
|Sri Anna’s House||All Bhajans from 26/3 to 29/3 6.30 PM including Sri Ramanavmi-Abishekam/Sahasranama Archnai/Bhagavathal Aradhanai|
|Sri Pandurangan Temple||Panduranga Abhishekam on 29/3 & Unchavarthi-major portion|
|Sri T C Anna’s house||Prasadam Hall|
|New Building (Adjacent to Anna AvataraStalam)||All pravachanam and Bakthas place for stay.|
However we will also bring you the Highlights so that you may all agree after interacting with people who attended that it is a short list and many were untold/Omitted/Uncovered by us. Yet we dare venture into that space with the blessings of Sri Anna.

|12.00Am-Sita Kalyanam||Pravaram lead by Sri Hariji and Sri Rangaji|
|1.30Pm-Bhagavathal Aradhanai lead by Sri Anna|
|1.Sri Rajagopal Hariji||Sri Rama Jananam was the topic and Sri Rajagopal started with Sri Anna’s famous line—Jaya Jaya Dasaratha Raja kumara..Jaya Vijaye Bhava Sri Raghu Veera.The Avathara Sloka was recited by him was thoroughly enjoyed by Sri Anna, just sitting next to him. After that Sri Anna honored with Prasadam|
|2.Smt.Champaka Rangaji||She took it from where Sri.Rajagopal left with Sage Viswamitra entering Sri Dasaratha’s palace to Sri Rama returning back to Ayodya with SITA after marriage.Darling Champaka was so outpouring that she recited more & more slokas with ease and making Sri Anna Smile/Laugh & Clap too.She concluded by saying that after reaching Ayodhya “ Rama with Sita lived with happiness”|
|3.Sri.Rangaji||Sri Rangaji started straightway with Bramha Stuthi after Lanka was won by Rama and concluded with Sri Rama Pattabhishekam|
|On comparing “Pushpaka Vimanam” and Sri Anna’s house, Sri Rangaji made Sri Anna and entire audience into thunderous applause-as if agreeing with his comments that both are capable of expanding as to number of people coming inside-Unlimited space as it is related to owner’s heart
than actual space.
|With humility that is matchless he described that as per Valmiki’s description the Pattabhishekam happened on Rama’s birthday and that is precisely on the same day after 14 years. Hence Stage coincidence that Rama’s banishment andUltimate Crowing happened on Birthday day-on “Pushya star” as narrated by Sri Valmiki.|
|4.Kalasa Stapanam for Pavvilambu-6.15Pm
|“Pandari Bhajan “was reverberating in the entire place with Varkaris started singing & dancing via Sri Pandurangan Temple and concluded at Sri Periavanchan Piilai Trumalaigai.Abhang bhajan was in full throttle and train to Pandarpur departed in Right Time!! With Seenu Mama as the engine Driver—as the people thundered..” Sadhulara Meeru Randi PAndaripuram Poguthuamma & Halu thumi Vata Chala”|
5.Prelude to Pavvilambhu-Sampradaya Bhajans/Divyanaman
8.00PM-29/3 to 3.00AM on 30/3
|Sri.Ramakrishna Bhagavathar unified all bahgavathas who had come there by recognizing them/Involving them by giving appropriate slot according their wish and capability.Sri.Rangaji was totally involved and enjoying all keertanas. Sri Anna was obviously enjoying and Living every moment apart from meeting bakthas who were leaving as well as who are just coming.|
|6.Pavvilambhu||Sri Anna graciously participated as SAKI to Padmavathi (Sri Rajagopala Bhagavathar) and willingly explained their purpose of coming there to the question put forth by Sri.Ramakrishna Bahgavathar. It is beyond our reach to explain as it is ANIRVACHANEEYAM-beyond words.|
|7.Konangee||It is to the great Sri.Surya Narayanan Bhagavathar who acted!, nay, transformed himself as konangee or comical man NOTHWITHSTANDING his physical challenges ( As he could hardly stand without the support of a stick, he is to take lot of efforts even to walk a few steps) to plunge the entire crowd and children especially into laughter with his mannerism and witty replies. Sri Ramakrishna Bhagavathar aptly brought best out of him by his cross questions and Lead questions too.
All the children who were awake for entire night were immersed in laughter. Sri Anna too burst into laughter frequently and enjoyed it to the hilt.
|8.Prasadam by Sri Manni||Finally Sri Manni gave prasadam to each and everyone and took MANGALA AARATHI|
Our Pranams to all Bhagavathas who were there for all 3 days and 3 nights and in spite of their age participated with full vigor and enjoying and living every moment.
The Dadhi Aradhani were so well managed that everything was served with utmost devotion and service round the clock-Yes! It was in PAR or probably exceeded what Sage Bharatwaga gave to Rama Bhaktas.
Kodathu Ramar Ki Jai
