GURUPAVANAPURA

 
THE PRAYER SERVICES 

The dinacharya begins quite early as at 3 a.m. To the melodious notes of Nadaswaram the Lord is awakened; this darsan is deemed very auspicious, and it is only after this abhishek starts, followed by malar naivedya. Then the Srikoil is closed for conducting 'Usha Puja'. After this, Shiveli - procession of mineature gold idol of the Lord begins in the inner prakara with 12-lighted lamps in front. Then commences the Ksheerabhishika, Navakabhisheka, followed by naivedyam that marks the close of morning puja. Ucha - Madhyahnika puja, the most important one commences at 11 a.m. and is over with elaborate rituals by 12.30. 

The Sandhyapuja begins at 5.30 p.m. with another Shiveli and blowing of conch shells. Deeparadhana follows. Regular rituals begin at 8 p.m. and again the procession for the third time. Witty burning of Truppuka - incense, the day's routine comes to a close. These elaborate sublime rites' observed everyday are in strict accordance with agamas.
