Prana Pradishta of Idols at home

Aneka Koti Namaskaarams Swamy,

We have two idols made of wood at our home for Pooja, the Perumal and Thayaar in Adiyen’s profile picture.

Adiyen’s father is dooing Pooja since he was 5 years old and he is 63 now.

Thayaar’s one hand is slightly broken and Adiyen’s father advised to make new one. Adiyen suggested to make Thayaar from stone this time. Adiyen have below questions considering that both idols have been prayed for more than 58 years and are really living with us.

1. When Perumal idol is made of wood, can we have Thayaar idol made of stone? Perumal made of wood is actually 150 years old and is still fine even after every Friday Abishekams.

2. Agama Sastras prescribes the way to transfer the Sakthi to another idol in temples. What is the procedure to do this at home?

3. After installation of new idol, can Adiyen keep the old idol at home despite not doing any poojas to old one. Adiyen is sentimentally attached to present Thayaar.

We have a miniature of Tirupathi at home and all daily sevas right from Suprabhatam to Ekantaseva, annual Brahmotsavams etc are done as such in Tirumala and Tiruchanoor. Adiyen have to continue all those after Adiyen’s father and handover to next generation.

So, Adiyen is very concerned about doing a proper installation now.

Adiyen request Swamy to help Adiyen and Adiyen’s father with answers to above questions. Many people may face same situation with home idols and will surely help all.

Dear Bhagavata,

Meantime adiyen will share from upanyasams.

This is a delicate situation. Most Sri Vaishnavaites do THirumanjanam on “Salagrama” Perumal after Acharya initiation. Doing THirumanjanam to vigrahams/idols requires proper Acharam/Anushtanam, Theetu to be followed at home, and all strict rules as in temples, which is very difficult. So, Perumal makes himself in available simplest Salagrama form (round pebble stone) to avoid any Mana Ulaitchal if something happens to idols at home. Bhakta also need to consult with Bhaktas own Acharya GuruParamparai, as this is a specific situation pertaining to Bhaktas family tradition.

Swami says in Enpani 671 “what is Salagrama”

En PaNi 651-700

Thank you Baktha. Adiyen is Madhva. But poojas are done as in Tirumala, Srivaishnava Sampardayam. Adiyen cannot consult Adiyen’s Guru Paramparai in this regard.

Further, these idols are with us and accepting Pooja past 58 years. They have proven many times that they live with us and happy with our poojas. We do have Saligramams (13 numbers), obtained from various sources but can be arranged and shaped similar to Lord Venkateswara. If one has more than 12 Saligramams, it is a Kshetram. However, idols staying with us for past 58 years can’t be disposed. Adiyen will not live in this world without them. If required, our family members shall improve on Madi and Acharam. That’s only way.

So, I kindly request a solution for present situation instead of advises to avoid such idols, which should have been considered 58 years back.

Adiyen have purchased Agama Sastras (12 Volumes). Adiyen also have Tantra Sara Sangraha, based on Pancharatra Agama given by Adiyen’s Purvacharyar Madhvacharyar, based on Veda Vyasar’s work.

It will take time for Adiyen to read and understand. So, Adiyen sought a ready advise from Swamy.

However, if Swamy is not willing to give a response, Adiyen will read Agamas and proceed and leave the rest to Lord and Lordess themselves. However, Adiyen is so attached with idols and can’t leave them.

Anyway, thank you very much Baktha, for referring to Enpani audio and quoting Swamy’s advise, thereby giving a response.

Sarvam Shri Govindhaarpanam!

Dear Bhagavata,

Adiyen feel BhagavAtas Perumal-Thayar at residence is so intimate to Bhakta’s family.

Adiyen will also pray on Sri Velukkudi Swami’s ThiruvAdi, Acharyas/Alwars ThiruvAdi and Thayar-Perumal ThiruvAdi for an ultimate Ugappaana Solution for Bhakta’s present situation.

As Swami says Mahalakshmi Thayar is ‘Suddha Satvam’ with No Rajas/Tamas, and SHE is the one and only Jagath Maatha for all HER children ‘JeevAthmas’ and Karunai ullam, SHE will not leave us stranded in any such situations.

During any such times (ikkattaana soozhnilai), adiyen chant the below NamAlwar Thiruvaimozhi paasuram 6.10 about Piratti remembering the arthams from Swami’s pravachanam, and there will be a superb solution in such a way that we wouldnot have even expected. Now, this has become a regular daily practice. So adiyen will share the same, if it helps BhagavAta.

(Swami says Meaning in short as,

பத்மாவதி அலர்மேல் மங்கை தாயார் அவர்களை, தன் திரு மாரபில் கொண்டு இருக்கும் திருவேங்கடத்தவனே,

உலகத்துக்கு எல்லாம் அதிபதி ஆன பகவானே, என்னையும் எப்போதும் ஈசனாக இருந்து ஆளக்கூடிய எம்பெருமானே ,

உனக்கு சமமாக புகழ் படைத்தவன் வேறு யாரு, உனக்கு சமமானவனும்  இல்லை, மேன்  பட்டவனும் இல்லை, தேவர்கள் ரிஷிகள் ஆகிய அனைவராலும் போற்றும், எல்லாராலும் ஆச்ரயிக்க படும் திருவேங்கடத்தானே,

எந்த புகழும் இல்லாத அடியேன், உன் திருக்கடி தாமரைக்கு கீழ அமர்ந்து, உன் திருவடியை அடைந்து, பத்மாவதி தாயாருக்கும் உனக்கும் கைகர்யம் செய்தெனே.
