“There is a countless treasure, even surpassing that of Kubera in Ambalam”
as said in Agastya’s Nadi, Chidambaram, Seergazhi, Thanjavur Periya Kovil, Kutralam, Thiruvannamalai, Thiruvarangam, Thiruvanaikka, Rameshwaram, Thiruvaroor, Pazhani, Thiruchendur, Azhagar Kovil, Madurai temples contain treasures which are immeasurable. Somnath temple was invaded 18 times only to take away the wealth.
They won’t allow anyone other than the Maharaja to prostrate (sashtanga namaskara) in the single-legged mandapam in front of Lord Padmanabha Swamy. All the property of those who do that goes to the Lord. Therefore the rights to prostrate have been given only to the King. If someone drops something by mistake in that mandapam, the temple staff will hand it over to the temple authorities which will then get added to the temple hundi.
There are two Urchavams (a religious temple celebration) per year during Aipasi and Panguni Tamil months. There will be a procession by Krishna, Padmanabha, Narasimha moorthis in the evening and night, in different vehicles. The eighth day is called Kanikkai. The King and his family will provide their offering in a golden pot first. Then the rest can offer. The ninth day’s occasion is called Vettai (hunting). Then on the tenth day, Padmanabha, Krishna, and Narasimha are kept in the palanquin, taken to the seaside for Theerthavari (a holy bath) and done abisheka and pooja, which is called Aaratu. They take the moorthi’s along the airport runway route. No part of the world allows a religious procession to be carried out in the runway other than Anantha Sayana. The airport gets closed later in the afternoon with no flights allowed to take off or land.
When a prayer is kept during the Aaratu of these three moorthis, it will get fulfilled sooner. Those who have experienced it won’t miss this darshan.
Here’s a video of the Vettai, the ninth day’s occasion.
Here’s a video where the three moorthis go for Aaratu via the airport runway.
Once it is known that the worlds richest is Lord Padmanabha Swamy, the Government has enforced a number of restrictions around the temple and the town. Armed forces guard the temple where no one is allowed to stay beyond a time.
Those who go to have darshan of Lord Padmanabha better go with only Him in their mind, to only desire to have His darshan. The thought about where the treasure is, where the door begins etc will only give Dosha, says Maha Guru Agastya. The “things” that are there belong to someone else. Just remain with the thought that it is taken care of by Agastya Himself.
The sole purpose of this series is to emphasize the importance of having Agastya (in His Athma Swaroopa Samadhi) or the Lord in their mind, thought and attention.
The series of Agastya’s Anantha Sayana ends here.
