"A Gift of the Magi" from Uma to this blogger

I have been trying to locate a  good high resolution clear picture of Lordess Kamakshi at Mangadu for sometime close to an year now. Interestingly the website of Mangadu Kamakshi temple also seems to have only a low resolution picture of the Lordess.

My sincere thanks to Uma from Pammal who endeavored to help in getting a good high resolution image scanned and shared across.

And as a rarest breed of coincidence the scanned image came up on the Christmas Eve day making it a gift of the magi and a greatest divine blissful shower of blessings.

Perhaps, Mangadu Kamakshi had been penancing to Lord Shiva for several years before tying the knots at Kanchipuram and quite similarly it had been months of wait for Her before I could get behold of Her after a long gap.

Update on 27th December 2011: I also emailed to Sri Mangadu Kamakshi Devasthanams the new picture and with a request to them to see if they can publish the newer image on the website for the benefit of all devotees. Today they replied me with the calendar pic of 2012 where they have another divine picture of Sri Kamakshi. Please find the same below:



Thank you Uma and thank you Kamakshi!

Thanks for the mention Deepak. And just like the saying in Tamil "edho edho eppo nadakanumnu iruko, adhu adhu appo dhaan nadakum". So we got to be patient until then. Have a great year ahead.
