Peedam founder Kayilai Gnanaguru Dr Sri Muralidhara Swamigal has announced that the Karikolam would be undertaken throughout South India in the interest of world peace, and to pray for rains to provide relief to farmers, and prevent ills and troubles for the people of the world. At the end of the Karikolam, the idol would be installed at the Sakthi maha peedam being established next to the Danvantri Peedam at Walajapet.
Recently, over 6,000 kg of red chilly ‘vethal’ were used in a 12 x 21 feet special homa kundam for a Prathyangara Devi homam conducted for a week. Over 1.5 lakh devotees participated in this yaagam. Sri Muralidhara Swamigal then received a message that a Prathyangara Devi idol should be installed at the site of the yaagam with Ardha Meru, and that it should be known as Maha Peedam.
Accordingly, after discussions with various experts, a bhoomi pooja was held at the site for the proposed Mahai Peedam. At that time, Swamigal received a message that the Maha Peedam should be established after doing a yaagam with 10,000 pomegranates. Devi appeared in a Yagna Roobini form and
suggested that a yaagam should be performed at Her Jwalamukhi shrine in Himachal Pradesh. Thus, Swamigal performed the yaagam at over 30 Sakthi and Siddhar peedams. Water, stones, sand and herbs collected from these peedams were brought to the Walajapet site, and a Trisoolam was established wherein 51 yaaga kundams have been created for 51 Sakthi Peedam yaagams to be conducted from August 14 and 17 at the end of which the Karikolam would begin.
The idol would be installed shortly, after the completion of the Karikolam.
Swamigal has said devotees who wish to perform pooja at their houses or offices, with the Prathyangara Devi idol, can register with the Peedam and make bookings for the same. Those who wish to conduct Danvantri homam in the presence of Danvantri utsavar, Chakkarathaazhwar and Arogya Lakshmi Thayar, at their residences or factories, can also contact the Peedam.
