    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2015!

    Hi This is Gayathri Rajaraman from Coimbatore.We have been celebrating golu at our home for past 15 years in a grand manner.Our golu is usually mix of dolls which have been accumulated over the past 50 to 60 years from my mother in law along with the modern dolls accumulated by me over the recent past. We have the traditional marapachi which is 50 years old followed by ceramic dolls Ram Laxman Bharath and shatrughan which are close to 40 years old. This year our theme includes the various avatars of Lord Vishnu eg: Narasimha Avatar , Rama Avatar and Krishna Avatar. In order to finish it in grand manner we have kept in display of the very sacred " GO Darshan" which happens at Uppiliappan Temple in Thanjavur every morning as the lord is woken up by the acharyas in the face of cow and aptly followed by the Brahmotsav and Thirunageswaram which is close by also in display.We looked for Mountain in the bazaar as the saying goes " Necessity is the mother of Invention" we have made a 3X2 feet long mountainous region made of plaster of paris depicting ravanas country of srilanka.All the pics are added with this.Thankyou for ur efforts

    Re: Penmai's Navarathri Golu Contest 2015!

    Hello, We feel immense pleasure to share our 15th year of celebrating golu to you. apart from tradional golu we used have thematic golu every year. This time our theme is "KAMADHENU". We have displayed entire depiction of 3 murthis relation to kamadhenu. Lord brahma's creation- Aghalya wedding, lord Shiva- patteeshwar,lord Krishna- govindan name. The theme was to emphasize the significance of holy cow in hinduism and ended with a social message that creating awareness as farming lands are sold as plots. we cordially invite you to visit our house and feel the divine.

    Thanks and regards

    Navrathri Kolu contest - Malathi Vasudevan

    The theme of this kolu is Sthala Puranam of temples, Ramayana

    and Mahabharata.

    This kolu is split as three rows. The left row steps are described

    in Kolu Step#1, 2, 3. The Kolu steps # 4, 5 and 6 are

    representing the right row. The middle row is represented as

    “Middle single step”.

    KOLU STEP# 1

    VILAKKOLI PERUMAL TEMPLE @ THOOPUL

    VilakkoliPerumal temple at Thoopul in Kancheepuram is one

    among the 108 DivyaDesas of Lord Vishnu. Perumal granted

    darshan to Mother Saraswathi in this temple. This is the birth

    place of noted Vaishnava Acharya Sri Vedanta MahaDesika.

    Lord Brahmma was sad that he had no temple in Earth and

    conducted a yajna dedicated to Lord Shiva. He failed to invite

    His own consort Mother Saraswathi. Angry Saraswathi cursed

    that there should be no light to conduct the yajna. Brahmma

    fell at the feet of Lord Vishnu for light. Perumal granted

    darshan to Brahmma in the form of jyoti-light and helped him.

    As Perumal gave light – VilakkuOli in Tamil- He is called

    VilakkoliPerumal and DeepaPrakasar in Sanskrit.

    VEDANTA DESIKAN

    Swami desika was a poet, philosopher, logician and he took the

    task of upholding the concepts preached by Sri.Ramanuja. He

    has been blessed by Garuda and Hayagreeva after he

    meditated upon them for days without food and water. Lord

    Hayagreeva appeared before desika and blessed him with the

    nector flowing from HIS mouth.Desikan has composed 28

    Devotional stotras and various other Granthas.

    The event of Lord VaradarajaPerumal granting Darshan on His

    Garuda vahanam to Saint Vedanta MahaDesikan in Vaikasi is

    grandly celebrated in May-June.

    KOLU STEP# 2

    SRIVILLIPUTHUR ANDAL

    Andal was adopted by the Alvar saint, Periyazhlwar, who found

    her as a baby lying under a tulasi plant in the temple garden of

    Srivilliputhur.

    Andal used to dress herself as a bride, look in a mirror, and

    wear flower garlands. Periyalvar, busy in his daily preparations

    to go to the temple, took that same flower garland to the

    temple. This flower garland used to be offered to the Lord

    Vishnu.

    Seeing Andal’s extraordinary bhakti, pure love and devotion,

    Periazhlwar wanted her to marry only Lord Vishnu. He took her

    to Srirangam, where Andal merged into Sri Ranganathar.

    Andal composed Thiruppavai and NachiyarThirumozhi, that are

    still recited by devotees during the winter festival season of

    Margazhi.

    KOLU STEP# 3

    GLIMPSES FROM RAMAYANA

    1. SITA’S ABDUCTION

    Prince Rama goes into the forest chasing the golden

    deer, when Ravana, dressed as a beggar tricks Sita and

    abducts her.

    2. HANUMAN MEETS SITA

    Hanuman spots Sita in Ashokavanam and hands over

    Rama’s ring to Sita as a mark of his identification.

    3. LAKSHMANA’S REVIVAL

    When Lakshmana was injured in the battle, sanjeevani

    herb was needed as his medication. Hanuman came to

    his aid by carrying the entire sanjeevani mountain.

    4. RAMA’S PATTABISHEKAM

    Rama is crowned the king of Ayodhya when he returns

    after 14 years of vanavaasam.

    KOLU STEP# 4

    ARDHANAREESWARAR TEMPLE

    The famous Ardhanareeswarar temple is situated in

    Tiruchengode. It is also famous for ChenkottuVelavar

    (Lord Muruga) Temple. The Ardhanareeswarar (man-woman)

    manifestation of Shiva represents the unity of Shiva and

    Parvati.

    In the SkandaPurana, Parvati requests Shiva to allow her to

    reside with him, embracing "limb-to-limb", and so

    Ardhanarishvara is formed. It also tells that when the

    demon Andhaka wanted to seize Parvati and make her his wife,

    Vishnu rescued her and brought her to his abode. When the

    demon followed her there, Parvati revealed her

    Ardhanarishvara form to him. Seeing the half-male, half-female

    form, the demon lost interest in her and left.

    KOLU STEP# 5

    ULAGALANDA PERUMAL OF THIRUKOVILUR

    Lord Vishnu, in His Vamanavatara-Trivikrama Avatara was to

    teach that wealth of even great kings should not land them

    pride and arrogance. He took the Vishwaroopa, measured the

    space with His right Leg and the Earth with the left. The two

    fingers on his left hand stretch out referring to the two steps he

    took to measure the two worlds and the stretched finger on his

    right hand indicating the question to Mahabali as to where he

    could place his third step.

    This is the holy place where the first three Azhwars-

    PoigaiAzhwar, Boodhathazhwar and Peyazhwar- met together

    incidentally by the grace of Lord.

    It is noteworthy that the holy scriptures Nalayira Divya

    Prabandam containing 4000 verses in praise of Lord Vishnu

    sung by 12 Alzhwars from time to time at various places, began

    from Tirukovilur.

    KOLU STEP# 6

    VISWAROOPA DARISANAM

    In the climactic war in the Mahabharata, the Pandava prince

    Arjuna and his brothers fight against their cousins, the Kauravas

    with Krishna as his charioteer. Faced with moral dilemma that

    whether or not to fight, Krishna discourses him about life and

    death by means of Bhagawath Gita and reveals his

    Vishwaroopa.

    Vishwaroopa is considered the supreme form of Vishnu, where

    the whole universe is described as contained in him and

    originating from him.

    VISHNU SAHASRANAMAM

    Once the Mahabharata war ended, Pandavas were victorious.

    Yudishtra the eldest of the Pandavas became the King of

    Hasthinapura and went to Bheeshma the great who was

    grievously wounded in the battlefield and was lying in a bed of

    arrows. Yudhishtra asks Bheeshma many questions and as an

    answer to the question what is the best possible stotra,

    Bheeshma answers that it is the Vishnu SahasraNama and

    teaches it to Yudishtra.
