Thiruvallikeni Garuda Seva 2010
Sincere thanks to Sri Parthasarathy* for sharing the video recorded through his personal camcorder of Sri Rukmini Sametha Parthasarathy in Thiru-Allikeni. The same has been shared along with this post for the benefit of pilgrims and devotees worldwide.
Interestingly whenever I travel away from Chennai I ensure and my Lord ensures that He travels with forthwith without any delay of any kind and without any demur of any sort. I fondly recall a Pasuram to this effect:
கணிகண்ணன் போகின்றான், காமரு பூங்கச்சி
மணிவண்ணா! நீ கிடக்கவேண்டா! துணிவுடைய
செந்நாப் புலவன் யானும் போகின்றேன் நீயுமுன்றன்
பைந்நாகப் பாய் சுருட்டிக் கொள்!
You can find the incident with the Azhwar that gave rise to this pasuram over here.
* There is something interesting with this mention of Parthasarathy. My friend who recorded this video is also called as Parthasarathy and the Lord's name in Thiruvallikeni is also Sri Parthasarathy. :)
