On the third day of the Aradhana, Swamy Namadevanandji delivered pravachan between 11-00A.M.-12-30.P.M.
Combining with the Aradhana celebrations, there will be a lecture series on Tiruppavai of Andal, sponsored by Tirumala Tirupathi Temple, from 16th Dec to 14th Janm2012 by. Sri B.Sreerama Murthy. Andal is a woman-saint, who lived about 1500 years back in Villiputtur, a town near Madurai of Tamilnadu. Andal, a little girl who wanted to marry only the Lord Vishnu, finally succeeded to attain Him. Her work, Tiruppavai, in Tamil is a highly inspiring collection of devotional poems which prompts other women to participate in the pooja that is being performed during the month of Margashira;and sung all over Tamilnadu and it is fast spreading all over south India. The lecture series was inaugurated by Sri Swamiji. The special feature of the Chintamani Mandir is, the kannada people sing Marathi Abhangs on Shri Maharaj, and now many women chant the Tamil "Tiruppavai"!
Later, in the evening Sri Dattatreya Velankar gave a ricital of Hindustani music.
