GURUPAVANAPURA

 

UNIQUENESS 

Guruvayur, a household shrine in Kerala, and a sublime haven for Narayanopasana is a popular Punya Kshetra of global significance. No pilgrimage centre, be it Saiva, or Vaishnava, or Sakteya can be placed on par with this divyadhama, nor the claimant for priority ever wins, with regard to the ministration of a great variety of spiritual services covering every segment of human life. The wide range of multitudenous religious ceremonies conducted in the august presence of Sri Krishna for blissful life by warding off evils confronting, or that may likely emerge in the course of every venture, together with offering of grateful thanks, on successful fulfillment of desires, lure devout humans in millions to this mokshapuri throughout the year. 

No wonder the strangers are awestruck at the offering of an infinite number of rituals - nithya and naimithika, encompassing every phase of the entire span of devotees' existence, beginning with namakarna - christening; annaprasana first rice feeding; aksharabhayasa - initiating into studies; Vyapararambha - inaugurating avocation; vivaha Subhakarya solemnising marriage; shastyabdipurti - celebrating sixtieth birth day etc., in addition to several rituals connected with giving tulabharam, donation of articles, making endowments and the like, when relieved from life-taking ailments, or on crossing unaffordable obstacles in the ocean of life. Here is a shrine with a difference! And there lies its uniqueness!! That accounts for its popularity!!!
