Life History Of Ramanujar
Sri Kesavasomayaji and Srimathi Kanthimathiammal were living in Sriperumbuthur. They did not have any offspring. Sri Kesavasomayaji then visits Thiruvallikkeni dhivyadhesam and performs a Puthrakameshtiyagam (praying to Lord Vishnu for a Puthrabaghyam) and worships Sri Venkatakrishnan Emperuman. Emperuman promises to him that he himself will appear as his son. Soon after, Kanthimathiammal gives birth to a beautiful boy child at Sriperumbuthur and he gets named as Ilayazhwar by his maternal uncle Periya Thirumalai Nambi.
The Uthsavar archaavigraham of Emperumanar present here is known as Than Vugantha (cherished by himself) thirumeni (vigraham/form). When Emperumanar was 120 years old, his disciples gets an archaavigraham which exactly resembles Emperumanar at that ripe age and presents the same to Emperumanar. Emperumanar embraces that vigraham and blesses that vigraham to his sishyas. He orders that vigraham to be installed at Sriperumbuthur.
The mulavar and uthsavar of Emperumanar’s share the same Thridhandam (3 sticks carried by Sannyasis). When uthsavar is in the garbhagraham (main sanctum), the Thridhandam is with the mulavar and when the uthsavar goes out, the Thridhandam is with the uthsavar.
