Thousands witness 'teerthodbhava'

River Cauvery sprouted out of Brahma Kundike at Talacauvery during the auspicious moment of Meena lagna at 6.07 pm on the day of Tula Sankramana. The cheer of devotees was accompanied by misty weather and drizzling. 

The overwhelmed devotees shouted ‘Jai Jai Matha..Cauvery Matha,’ in praise of Goddess Cauvery, which reverberated along the Brahmagiri Hill range as the priests collected the ‘theertha’ gushing out from Brahma Kundike and sprinkled it over the crowds.

The rituals at Talacauvery began as flowers and silver ornaments from Bhagandeshwara Temple of Bhagamandala were brought as per the tradition. A pooja was offered to the Brahma Kundike by Talacauvery Temple chief priests Narayana Achar and Gopalakrishna Achar.

Devotees thronged Talacauvery in thousands from early morning. Many held rituals on the special day in commemoration of their forefathers by carrying out ‘pindapradanam’ at the Triveni Sangam, the converging point of Cauvery, Sujyothi and Kannika rivers. Many took a holy dip in the Triveni Sangam on the occasion.

Special buses were run from Madikeri and Mysore for devotees. Tight security was arranged by police at Talacauvery. The artistes performed the Kodava traditional band ‘Dudikott Patt’ on the occasion.

Cultural programmes were organised by the department of Kannada and Culture.
