Two students of SRIMAAN BHATTAR GURUKULAM had not undergone their sacred function of Upanayanam. But the boys were very enthusiastic and were requesting ammangar and swami to perform the orthodoxical etiquette. At a stage they began to importune for the same and ammangar and swami were pleased their eagerness and arranged the upanayanam to be performed at the gurukulam itself.
The upanayanam function was arranged in a grandway on 24th June. All the usual orthodox and customary practices were observed – Goshti, Thadiyaradhana, Udhaka Shanthi, Kumara Bhojanam, Yagnopaveeth Dharanam, etc. Many Acharya purushas, Vidwans and well wishers assembled to bless the vadus. Everyone who came to know about the children’s enthusiasm in learning were surprised and very much pleased.
All children of SRIMAAN BHATTAR GURUKULAM celebrated the function just like their family festival. It was very delightful to see the brightness and pleasure on the faces of innocent kids. After the orthodoxical etiquettes were over a series of upanyasams was performed by the students.

Madhavan on PERIYAZHWAR adding details of THIRUCHERAI DIVYADESAM.
The upanyasams were prepared by the students on their own and it was really unbelievable for the least time they had taken and the best narrations they have performed. If revealed the skills hidden under their innocent faces and everyone appreciated their talents very much. The fervor of the children to learn the etiquettes and to adhere to them is the fruition of the blessings of SriRenganatha and SriRenganachiyar along with the blessings of the Acharyas.
Swami and Ammangar were appreciated of their part to be the impetus for the children and swami dedicated the praises to the teachers of the gurukulam.
Now, the children, after their Upanayanam have begun to importune swami and ammangar to arrange Samashrayanam for them.
Divya Dampathi of Srirangam shall shower torrents of blessings to all of them for a long, peaceful, happy, healthy and content life.
