On the seventh day evening of the Saalakatla Brahmotsavams, Lord Malayappa delighted his thousands of devotees by riding on the Chandra Prabha Vahanam on Friday evening under the moonlight.
According to legendary, Chandra or the moon stands for promoting medicinal values among living beings including plants. The puranic scripts of “Purushottam Praptiyagam” describe Chandra as Lord Vishnu as an invisible architect who had evolved solutions for all ills of the society.The Saint exponent Geeta Charya says “Nakshatrana Aham Shashi”(I am a spot on the moon) indicating the presence of moon as an integral part of the celestial system.
It was a delightful sight to watch the Lord Malayappa Swamy glide along four mada streets on the pleasant Chandra Prabha Vahanam which has given a chill-thrill experience to devotees.
TTD EO Sri Anil Kumar Singhal, JEOs Sri KS Sreenivasa Raju, Sri Pola Bhaskar, CVSO Sri Ake Ravikrishna, Temple DyEO Sri Rama Rao and others took part.
