Vyasa Puja Performed
15 July 2011, Kanchipuram
Every year, Vyasa Puja is performed on the Full Moon Day of the Aashada Month, considered auspicious and holy for worshipping the spiritual preceptors beginning with Sage Vyasa, the avatara of Lord Vishnu, who has done great service to humanity by classifying the Vedas, writing the eighteen puranas, the great epic Mahabharata and Srimad Bhagvata.
Earlier in the day, the Utsava Vigraha of Sri Adi Sankara was taken out in a procession along the four Raja Streets around Sri Kamakshi Amman Temple.
The Guruvandana Nadasamarpanam programme, a two-month long music festival to be held in the evenings during the Chaturmasya Vratam, commenced this evening with saxophone recital by Sri. G. Ramanathan.
