We planned that instead of having in cities it is better to perform our function in the temple so that it will be like thanksgiving to almighty who has guiding us in our life.
The place one of remote place and from Chennai we have to travel for 8hrs by bus. We hire a bus to take us and we started our holy journey from Chennai at 6.00 AM, and arrangements were made for intermittent tiffin and coffee break.We reached the Thirukadaiyoor by 3.00PM and we lunch.
At about 5.00 Pm RudraEkadasi Japam was Started. It is chanting of rudram 11 times by 11 Vedics, equivalent to chanting of one lakh namas of shiva, the protector of human life. Elderly people were present for blessing this occasion.
