Thiruvadi of Sri Vishnu

Thiruvadi of Sri Vishnu

Sriman Narayanan
As stated in Bhagavad Gita, in this kali yugam, the entire world will be surrounded by evil thoughts and bad actions. Inspite of these evil activities, to attain a good stage, the only way is to catch hold of the divine feet of Sriman Narayanan. There is a great slogan in Tamil, which states:

"Adi Udhavuvathu Pol
Annan Thambi Uthava maattar"

Lots of people misunderstand this slogan. The actual meaning of this is even in critical situation our brothers (annan thambi) will leave us without offering any help to us. But, even at that time, the adi - the thiruvadi of Sriman Narayanan will help us. This is the actual meaning of this. Likewise, in this article we can how the greatness of the thiruvadi of Sriman Narayanan.

1. Vamana Avathar:

In Vamana (Dwarf) avathar, Sriman Narayanan incarnates as a small Dwarf Brahman and by asking the 3 feets of the Earth, the Perumal reduces the head weight of Bali Chakravarthy. The first feet measured this entire earth and the second feet - the sky and the Perumal asked for the final and the 3rd feet Mahabali could not offered the final feet and finally he surrendered his head as the 3rd feet. As a result, the head weight of Mahabali is reduced and his head was stamped by the divine feet of Sriman Narayanan.

2. Rama Avathar:

Sri Rama Avathaar Sri Rama Avathar is considered to be one among the great incarnations taken by Sriman Narayanan. Sri Rama and Lakshmana went along with the Great Muni Vishwamitra to help him and to protect the Yagam from the Asuras. During that, Rama and Lakshmana killed two dreadful Arakkas Thatakai and Tharakasuran. The Yagam was done in a very good way and Sri Rama and Lakshmana killed lots of Asurars. After helping Vishwamitra, Rama came towards the Palace of King Janakar where Swayamvaram for Sita Piratti was held while walking towards the palace, a stone which was which was found of the side of road was struck by the divine feet of Sri Ramar and the next moment, the stone turned up into a beautiful women. She was nothing but the Agalikai, wife of Gouthama muni. She was turned to a stone as the Sabham given by Gouthama Muni. After the divine foot was struck, she got the Sabha Vimochanam and thanked Sri Rama and Lakshmana.

3. Krishna Avathar:

Sri Krishna Avathaar Like how, Sri Rama avathar is said to be great one, Krishna Avathar is also said to be an equivalent one. In Krishnavathar also, lots of interesting issues are said and explained through the feet of Sri Krishnar.

Kaliyuga Varadhan, Sri Srinivasan who is found in Nindra Thirukkolam is standing for his sorrow and accepting their dedications.

There are lots of things to say about his divine feet. But, one must be very clear that if we strongly catch hold of his feet, all of our sorrow will decrease and that is the only way to attain Mukthi.

The only way to get out of sorrow is catch hold of the divine feet of Sriman Narayanan.
