THE GODDESS WHO HAS PERIODS

The udayada, after the occurrence, is available for sale to the public. Though the rate fixed by the Devaswom is only Rs. 10/- due to its being a rarity it is grabbed by devotees by paying hundreds of rupees, booking it well in advance. Among the dignitaries who bought this, We are told, are the late Sir C. P. Ramaswami Aiyar and ex-President Shri V. V. Giri.

The sanctum is kept closed for three days when t Goddess gets menses. During this period a small vigraha is installed in a secluded room on the northwest come; of the nalambalam and pujas are conducted there. On the fourth day, the bathing ceremony- Triputtu arattu-is conducted  by taking the image in procession on a female elephant to the nearby Pampa river. Innumerable devotees, especially women with thalapoli (holding lamps), accompany this.
