GODDESS SHINES IN SURYANARAYANAMURTHY AVATAR
TIRUCHANOOR, DEC 5:
Suryaprabha Radhavistham! Tatvaika Gunanischalam!
Bhaktanandaprada Purnam! Padmaam Devi Maham Bhaje!
On the seventh day morning, the golden Surya Prabhavahanam on which Goddess Sri Padmavathi Devi took celestial ride blessing devotees, emanated vibrant bright rays as soon as the rays of the Sun touched the vehicle much to the amusement of the devotees.
Goddess donned in guise of Lord Suryanarayanamurthy, wearing the huge garland of exotic Ixora flowers, She blessed her devotees over the finely decorated Suryaprabha Vahanam which glittered all through the procession.
The importance of ‘Surya Prabha’ can be traced back to ‘Venkatachala Mahatmyam’, wherein Lord Venkateswara himself acknowledges the sense of devotion of Sun God to Goddess Padmavathi. The lord performed penance at Tiruchanur, to which the Suryanarayana shrine here stands testimony, according to temple legend.
