Cheraman Perumal Guru Pooja
Cheraman Perumal Nayanar Guru Pooja 7th Aug 2019.
Soon, the call came from Siva to Sundaramoorthy, to return to Kailash. A white elephant was sent for him, specially for the purpose of his journey. Cheraman came to know that Sundaramoorthy was leaving skywards towards Kailash. He felt very sad that his friend was leaving him, without even telling him. He immediately went to his royal horse, chanted Panchakshara into its ears and sat on the horse. The horse then flew skywards and reached Kailash, even before Sundarmoorthy had arrived. He waited at the entrace and sang the famous Tiru Kailya Jnana Ula, a famous song. Sundramoorthy arrived and Sivaganas were specially sent to the entrance to receive Sundaramoorthy and Cheraman Perumal!
