praana pratishta for home perumal

When we buy vigrahas from the store, do we have to do prana pratishta before worshipping at home. For example, my mother bought a small Krishna vigraham from Dwaraka around 15 years ago and gave it to me. I have been performing aradhanai for Him for around 5 years now. I have not done any prana pratista. Is it ok? Will perumal be in the vigraham or do we have to ask someone to do prana pratishta.

Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha,

 

With Acharya ThiruvAdi Bhalam, adiyen would like to share adiyen’s understanding from Velukkudi Sri Krishnan Swami’s SorPozhivu regarding devareer’s question,

 

There is a story in GuruParamparai,

Once Swami Ramanujar was walking in SriRangam Kaveri karai, and saw some kids playing, basically replicating how the Aagamam is done inside SriRangam Temple. The kids made SriRanganatha Perumal vigraham made of sand, and took some sand as food and offered to Perumal. Then the procedure inside Temple is to give the Perumal prasadham, Theertham, Shatari 1st to a Jeeyar (Swami Ramanujar) by calling as “JEEYOO”. So, when the kids said the same thing “JEEYOO” to another kid to get the Prasadham after offering the sand as food to the Perumal made of sand, then immediately Swami Ramanujar who was watching the kids game from hiding, came out and fell immediately infront of the Perumal made of Sand, and took the Prasadham in Swami’s Kaavi Vastram with tears on Swami’s eyes and Swami walked away. The kids were surprised to see actual JEYOO Swami Ramanuajr itself got this prasadham. Other Shisyas of Swami Ramanuajr asked, why did Devareer took the kids game seriously and fell infront of the sand, it is not Perumal, since NO Praana Prathistai was done. We have actual SriRanaganatha Perumal inside the Temple after proper PRAANA Prathishtai.

 

Then Swami Ramanujar Replied as per Poghai Alwar’s ‘Mudhal Thiruvandhadhi paasuram 44,”. பகவான் இங்கு உள்ளார் என்று அந்த குழதைகள் அன்புடன் நம்பினார்கள், அதனால் பகவான் அங்கு ப்ரத்யக்ஷமாக இருப்பார்  Swami Ramanujar also said, if this is not true, then Poighai Alwar’s paasuram will become a lie. Hence Perumal resides in all Temples where Praana Prathistai is done, and BhagavAn also resides in any place and in any form depending up on one’s own pure Love/Devotion to BhagavAn”.

 

தமர் உகந்தது எவ்வுருவம், அவ்வுருவம் தானே

தமர் உகந்தது எப்பேர் மற்றபேர் – தமர் உகந்தது

எவ்வண்ணம் சிந்தித்து இமையாது இருப்பரே

அவ்வண்ணம் ஆழியானம்.

 

Meaning taken from Acharya.org online website:

ஆழியானம் தமர்.- The devotees (தமர்) of the Lord with Sudarshana Chakra (ஆழியானம் = Sriman NarayanAn),

உகந்தது எவ்வுருவம் – whichever form (எவ்வுருவம்) they like

அவ்வுருவம் தானே – He attains that form;

தமர் உகந்தது எப்பேர் – whatever name His devotees like

மற்ற பேர் – in addition, He takes on that name;

தமர் உகந்தது எவ்வண்ணம் சிந்தித்து – in whatever way His devotees “Like and Think”

இமையாது இருப்பரே – and meditate without break,

அவ்வண்ணம் – He will become that.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

So, considering this incident from Swami Ramanujar’s life history and Swami Ramanujar’s explanation about Poghai Alwar’s Paasuram, and going back to devareer’s question “……….my mother bought a small Krishna vigraham from Dwaraka ……………I have been performing aradhanai for Him for around 5 years now. I have not done any prana pratista. Is it ok? Will perumal be in the vigraham or do we have to ask someone to do prana pratishta.”

ANS: Since, BhagavAn is already residing HAPPILY in devareer’s small Krishna Vigraham due to devareer’s Bhakthi (ThiruAardhani in last 5 years), the necessity of additional Praana Prathishtai on this small Krishna Vigraham doesn’t arise at home.

 

Kurai Irundhaal, Velukkudi SriKrishnan Swami adiyenai kShamikka Praarthikkiraen and correct adiyen,

Nirai Irundhaal, adiyenudaya AcharyAn ThiruvAdi Bhalatthaal.

 

Adiyen Srinivasa (DhoddayAcharyar) Dasan.

Srimathe Rangaramanuja Mahadesikaya Namaha
Srimathe SriVarAha MahAdEsikAya Namaha
Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Swamy Thiruvadigaley Sharanam

Swamy,

As household Perumal does not have Agama vidhi like temple we don’t require prANa prathistA. As per one devoted mama , he says “Perumal comes down during thiruvArAdhanam and goes back” . Athu perumAL is a household member.

He is as close as we are. AgamA vidhi shouldn’t apply . Adiyen have seen some houses with big vigrahams of AmbAl and patAtOpams. Namma Chinna kannanukku adhu AgAdhu.

Our simplicity is his best policy
Pathram pushpam Phalam thoyam
Avlo dhan he expects

He does our prANa prathistA injecting jeevAthma to achit body not vice versa

Who are we to do prANa prathistA?

ஸ்வாமி!
நன்று சொன்னீர்!! பகவான் இல்லாத இடம் ஒன்று உண்டோ?

அடியேன் இராமாநுசதாசன்.

ஸ்ரீமதே ராமாநுஜாய நம: ஸ்ரீ ஸ்ரீரங்க நாராயண ஜீயர் ஸ்வாமிகளே சரணம்

Adiyen recite the following as part of the daily thiruvaradanam invocation phase and it is clearly requesting Perumal with his entourage to come and receive our offerings.  

மாரி மலை முழைஞ்சில் மன்னிக் கிடந்து உறங்கும்
சீரிய சிங்கம் அறிவுற்றுத் தீவிழித்து வேரி
மயிர் பொங்க எப்பாடும் பேர்ந்து உதறி
மூரி நிமிர்ந்து முழங்கிப் புறப்பட்டுப்
போதருமா போலேநீ பூவைப்பூ வண்ணா உன்
கோயில் நின்று இங்ஙனே போந்தருளிக் கோப்புடைய
சீரிய சிங்காசனத்து இருந்து யாம் வந்த
காரியம் ஆராய்ந்து அருளேலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

 

அஸ்ய ஸ்ரீ அகிலாண்ட கோடி பிரம்மாண்ட நாயக ஸ்ரீயும் ஸ்ரீயாய நம: பூம் பூம்யாய நம: நீம் நீலாய நம: சஹஸ்ர பரிவாரிய சஹஸ்ர மங்கள விக்ராகாய ஸ்ரீமத நாராயணாய நம: ஓம் நமோ பகவதே வாசுதேவயா நம: நித்திய ஆராதனம் கிரமம் கர்த்தும் யோக்யதா சித்திம் அனுகிரஹானா.
