PEDHE-PARASHURAMA

The afternoon worship session is the same as usual. After the presentation of the mahanaivedya, meals are served to the priests. In the sabliamandap a special throne-like seat known as the 'makhar’ is erected. This makhar is a miniature pavilion, the chief components of which are the cusped arches and cypress pillars. In the evening the image is brought out of the garbhagriha and placed in this makhar, to preside over the concert that is to follow. For this also, persons well-versed in the art of performing kirtans attend in large numbers. Then at eight the palanquin procession is taken out in great pomp. To round off the day’s proceedings another kirtan takes place.

On the next day the programme is not quite dissimilar to that of the first day. The only difference is that the feast is attended by many more persons than before. In the evening the Janmotsava or birthday celebrations take place. At this time the chief kirtan takes place. The rest of the programme except the evening janmotsava is repeated on the third day also. However, on this day the evening procession is much bigger and more colourful than usual. A huge crowd is present and the palanquin moves around the shrine five times instead of once
