By the grace of srIman nArAyaNan, AzhwArs, AchAryas and varthamAna madhurakavi vAnamAmalai jIyar swamy, the annual thiruppAvai mAnAdu (conference) was celebrated on Jan 4th, 2015 during this auspicious month of mArgazhi. The event is coordinated/conducted by srIvaramangA nAchiyAr bhaktha sabhA every year on the first sunday of January.

Many scholars such as srI u. vE. K B dhEvarAjan swamy (AsthAna vidhwAn of our mutt), srI u. vE. P. dheivanAyakam swamy, srI u.vE. P T sEshAdhri swamy, etc participated in the vidhwath sadhas presided by srI u. vE. vadakarai vijayarAghavan swamy. All vidhwAns were honored by the sabhA.

Over 80 children participated in the thiruppAvai recital competition. While the very young children (upto 7 years old) were asked to just recite the pAsurams, the older children are questioned rigorously from the pAsurams leading them to learn more about thiruppAvai. The children too were very impressive in their knowledge in the understanding of the meanings, concepts, etc from thiruppAvai. Quite a few girls decorated themselves like ANdAL and sung thiruppAvai with melodious tunes. There were also considerable number of children from non-vaishNava background and they were eagerly/devotedly recited the pAsurams. Prizes were distributed to many children in their respective categories (UKG to 2nd std, 3rd to 5th std, etc). Participation certificate and devotional gifts were given to all participants. All Prizes/Gifts were carefully selected to imbibe devotional value/culture in the children by thOthAdhri srInivAsan swamy (srIvaramangA nAchiyAr sabhA) and sampath thOthAthri swamy (thiruvArAdhanam, vAnamAmalai mutt, thiruvallikkENi).
