The Vaishaka Utsavam and Arattu of Thirukachamkurissi Perumal was held between 12th and 21st May 2022, after a gap of two years, due to the pandemic.
As a result of this break in tradition, Prayaschithams – as directed by the Tantris – preceded the Utsavam.
A Festival Committee was tasked with conducting the Prayaschithams and the Utsavam – an onerous mission, considering the finances of the temple had suffered greatly due to consistent Covid curbs in the area.
A host of special packages were created to tide over this crisis, and it was the hope of the Committee that the devotees of Perumal would, as always, generously offer sponsorship for the various events, and thus play an axial role in the 10 day event.
The Committee was especially happy to receive smaller contributions from devotees, for it was precisely the abundance of such interest that heightened the energies of the festival and flooded it with joy – inspite of the thoroughly inclement weather!
