Dhan Crafts & Jewels Sreemad Ramayanam were arranged as part of the celebrations. The second phase of upanyasams on Sreemad Ramayanam concluded on April 3 at the same venue. In the discourse, the essence of the subject was conveyed with a touch of humour, giving examples from daily life and events. Upanyasakartha Kalyanaraman inserts necessary examples whenever needed and the method of upanayanam and sandhyavandanam are also detailed. The artiste said that the reason for Lord Mahavishnu`s avatharam

as Vaamana was to remove Mahabali`s ego and protect the gods from Mahabali`s desire for Indrapadavi. The story line depicts the ethical values to be followed by one and all. The message was that one should leave ego and surrender everything to the God. Vaamanavatharam concludes with Lord giving moksham to Mahabali. The story inspires the feel of submissiveness in the minds of devotees. Those, who are interested to participate in spiritual programmes can contact : 9789810947 or 9841092405.
