EVENTS AT OM MURUGASRAMAM
Abhishekam with Poojas with Trisati Archanai on Tuesdays, Vishesa Poojas on Krithigai and Shasthis, 108 Tiruppugazh Samarpanam on Ani Moolam and Masi Makham are a few regular activities of the Asramam besides daily poojas. The annual Skanda Shasthi festival is a holy and homely event for devotees. The whole Asramam would wear a festive look with devotees thronging the Ashramam all through the seven days and got immersed in the ocean of Muruga Bhakti thoroughly enjoying the occasion as own family function. The procession of devotees carrying different kavadis and milk pots ( paal kudam) on skanda Shasthi day through the streets of west Mambalam reverberating with bhajans and veda chanting is a colourful and felicitous treat to watch and enjoy. Further the valli kalyanam being performed in the Ashramam, following Tiruppugazh paddhati, on the following occasions – Vaikasi Visakham, Skanda Shasthi and on January first is a distinctive feature of the Ashramam. Dolotsavam to Lord Muruga is being conducted throughout the year without any break.
The systematic procedures and meticulous planning as instituted by Swamiji have been the guiding factors in taking forward the functioning of the Asramam so far.
