Around the year 1832 another Rama bhakta Toomu Narsimha Dasu and his friend Varada Ramadasu, both have continued and established regular sevas, uthsavas and festival celebrations and standardised the same by giving the hukums (guidelines) as to how each celebration has to be conducted which is being followed even today by the temple authorities.
One of the important festivals is conducted on the day of birth star of Sri SeethaRamachandra Swamy i.e, on every Punarvasu when the nakshatra has incarnated in the form of human being, born to Dasaratha and Kousalya.
Punarvasu being the birth star of Sri Seetha Ramachandra Swamy… (Read More), every month on the day of Punarvasu apart from the regular sevas(Melukolupu, Abhishekam, Kalyanam and others) the deities are taken to Punarvasu Mandapam on the banks of Godavari river for carrying out sevas like Veda, Bhajans and Swasthi. This Punarvasu appears once in 27 days and as such in a year, there will be about 13 Punarvasu poojas being conducted in the temple. The HUKUM of 1832 under item 13 contains a direction that 10 days PAGAL PATTU Utsavams are to be conducted in Punarvasu Mandapam at the bank of Godavari river. So much importance was given to Punarvasu pooja by Toomu Narsimhadasu.
On the occasion of Punarvasu pooja, Alivelu Manga Sarvaiah Charitable Trust conducts devotional music programmes wherein devotees with musical background are given an opportunity to sing classical songs composed by Ramadasu, Thyagaraja, Annamayya and other Vaggeyakaras. To facilitate the participation in the above festival, the trust has arranged free accommodation and food and also provides accompaniments like Mrudangam and Violin so that the programme is carried out in a serene atmosphere in the service of Lord Sri Seetha Rama Chandra Swamy.
There will be two intervals (One and a half hour each) available at the disposal of the trust to organise the above programmes
(1) Morning between 7-30 to 9-00 A.M. after Abhishekham and
(2) Evening between 3-00 to 5-30 P.M.
Artists and traditional bhajan groups participating in the above festival are honoured with special Darshanam by temple authorities and distribution of prasadam by the Trust. It is well known that on Punarvasu falling in the first month of Telugu new year in the Vasantha Ruthuvu Chaitra Shuddha Navami Sri Seetha Ramachandra Swamy Kalyanam is celebrated throughout the Country and Abroad.
