Introduction

Nithya Aaradanai Perumal for Srimath Andavan Ashramam is SriVenugopala Perumal along with Sri Rukmini and Sathyabama. This is the perumal supposed to have been in the Ashramam from the days of Srimath Thirukkudanthai Desikan, a revered poorva acharya of our Ashramam who established Munithraya Sampradayam in the 1700s. Sri Venugopalan enjoys Dolothsavam at the residence of various devotees several times in a month. This is done in a beautiful Swarna Dolai specially made. Every one of you also know the beautiful silver mandapam, in which this Perumal is having Nithya aradanam. Both these facilities were made as per the wishes of His Holiness, Srimath Andavan Swamigal.  

With His blessings, Srimath Andavan ordained that Sri Ramanuja Mission have its own Dolai Perumal ( Sri Rukmini Sathyabhama Sametha Sri Venugopalan) here in the United States and blessed us with beautiful moorthis for which a grand prana pratishtapana mahothsavam was performed in 2004. Since then, Dolai Perumal has blessed several devotees travelling across the length and breadth of the country visiting their homes where thirumanjanam and dolais were performed. Also, Thirukalyana uthsavam was performed several times in this span at various locations across the country.  

Srimath Andavan also blessed us with the murthis of Sri Chakrathalwar with Sri Yoga Nrusimhar for which prana pratishtapana was performed in 2006. Since then, Sri Chakrathalwar has visited several houses and blessed devotees. Also, Sri Sudarshana homam has been performed at various places in the United States through which several devotees had the opportunity to participate and get blessed  

We urge the devotees to make use of this rare opportunity and invite Perumal and/or Sri Chakrathalwar to their houses and get blessings of the divine couple.
