Kanda Sasti Annadānam
Annadānam at Tiruchendur Kanda Sasti
Muttu Irulaayi Ammaiyar of Manamadurai is a exceptionally dedicated adiyaar of Lord Senthil Andavar and Goddess Mari Amman. She met her guru, a Brahmin employed as a cook in his native Ramanathapuram, twenty years ago at Tiruchendur. With sheer determination, her guru would collect donations so he could cook and serve annadanam to hundreds of poor devotees at Tiruchendur during Kanda Sasti.
Along with a growing band of devotees who serve hundreds of devotees daily tiffin, lunch, and dinner, Muttu Irulaayi Ammaiyar and her followers, who are all from humble backgrounds, serve the poorest and humblest of Lord Senthil Andavar’s devotees annually at Tiruchendur. Yet despite months of fund-raising annually, they find it more and more difficult to find the funds needed to purchase rice, vegetables, oil, and other provisions needed to serve so many devotees.
Murugan Bhakti encourages devotees to feed the Lord’s poor devotees during Kanda Sasti (many of whom will take this one meal per day only during Sasti). Muttu Irulāyi Ammaiyar and her devotees serve Lord Senthil Andavar as His bhaktars, so your donation brings the maximum value in a cost-effective way with the added essential ingredient of love for the Lord and all His devotees.
Note: Annadanam at Tiruchendur can be arranged during Kanda Sasti festival only.
“I endorse Muttu Irulaayi Ammaiyar and the Senthil Andavar Annadhana Sabhai, having been fully satisfied with the quality of nourishing hot and cold foods offered and partaken on the wet and rainy days of Kanda Sasti days of long ago. I found it highly satisfying.”—Patrick Harrigan, Murugan Bhakti Editor and Publisher
