THE PRESIDING GODDESS OF TIRUPPUTKUZHI
THAYAR is compassionate incarnate.
Thayar breathes love and infinite compassion.
The cool radiance of grace that adorns her most expressive visage fills the loving heart of any worshipper to the brim.
- Thayar bestows children for those barren women, who fervently pray to her.
Women who were denied of a child for long time, reverentially take a holy dip in the Gridhra Pushkarini (the sacred tank) and after taking a vow in Her presence, lie prostrate throughout the night with a pack of fried 'green gram' tied around the apron.
- If the "fried green gram" germinates by next early morning, the worshipper is immensely happy that her prayer is granted.
Till this day this remains as a testimony of faith. Miracles do happen.
Thayar's thirunakshathram is UTHIRAM.
There is a very large mandapam in the front courtyard of Thayar Shrine. As a practice, all FRIDAYS are special in her shrine.
