SRIRANGAM

UNIQUENESS 

Srirangam - the El Dorado of Vaishnavates, enshrining the celebrated image of Lord Ranganatha, is one of the most hallowed, and largely visited centres of pilgrimage of our sacred Ind, since Tretayuga. As the presiding deity is easily and readily accessible by simple, yet sublime means of bhakti and prapatti and showering boons of infinite variety, besides Sayujya Prapti along with admitting panchamas into the sanctum, this mokshapuri is attracting millions of devotees from all parts of India.

It is a thirtha kshetra of special significance for Vaishnavates; for, it is from here the Vaishnava Sampradaya wafted its potent glory and spread to all corners of the world.  As it is the august citadel of Vaishnavism, the Vaishnavates proclaim loudly on hearing it It is our Sakshatswargam and Ranganatha is our Pratyaksha daivam".  They deem the presiding deity as their life breath; god of gods, the much coveted Chintamani, the inner light, the Kalpavriksha, why, it is the be-all and end-all of their earthly existence.  Practically speaking, there is no Vaishnavate without knowing or uttering this istadaivam, or craving for a visit to this Bhuloka Vaikuntam.
