Swami Koorathazhvaan 1000th Thirunakshatram

Swami Koorathazhvan

Swami Koorathazhvaan Vaibhavam in Short

The ever liberated and liberated sould are always enjoying the supreme Lord Sriman Narayana in Sri Vaikuntam. Although the souls living in this world are also eligible to have this enjoyment, they due to their sinful deeds are unable to have such an experience; as a result, they live in this world. The Lord, with a view to correct the denizens of this world and receive their services, has out of compassion, manifested himself as Sri Rama and Sri Krishna.Even by such an effort, the Lord was unable to correct the human beings. So, he though that they could be brought round and made serviceable only through other human beings. So, he thought that instead of correcting them from this Supreme position as their master, it would be easier for him to this by placing himself in a lower status as a subservient person. He also opined that instead of correcting them from the position of their perceptor, it would be easier to correct them by Himself becoming a disciple and thus practically implementing His own teachings.

Accordingly, Sri Thiruvanantazhvan (Adisesha) manifested as Sri Ramanuja, while the Lord manifested Himself in the village Kooram, as Sri Koorathazhwan in the “Saumya” year in the month of Pushya under the asterism “Hastha”. Swami Koorathazhwan became a foremost disciple of Sri Ramanauja.

Our toungues cannot sing the glory of Sri Koorathazhwan. He brough to light the secret teachings of the Upanishads through his compositions, Panchastavam. Sri Ramanuja felt that he would certainly attain the highest abode, purely by virtue of his association with Azhwan!

    • Swamy,

      Please forgive that I was not able to get the information on Swamy Koorathazhwan’s 1000th year celebration in Sri Rangam. Most of the celebrations will take place in Kooram. But there will definitely be Thirumanjanam & Ghosti in Sri Rangam temple & all other Sri Vaishnava temples for Koorathazhwan’s Thirunakshatram.
