Malayappa Swamy charms devotees in Mohini Avataram

On the fifth day of the ongoing Annual Brahmotsavam on Monday morning Saturday, Sri Malayappa Swamy donned as Mohini avatar took celestial ride atop an Ivory palanquin with a golden parrot (Nachiar Thirukkolam) in his hand along the four mada streets along with Sri Krishna Swamy on another pallaki.

The dazzling jewelry and aromatic flowers decked on the vahanam is just a blast from mythology and devotees go agog at the sight of the deity.

Legends say that it was Lord’s message that His devotees should not fall prey to worldly desires and come out of ‘Maya’ by appearing as Mohini. Besides he is also cautioning that the entire universe was a creation of his ‘Maya’ and to overcome the same, everyone should worship Him.
