About Sri Go:da: Rangana:tha Kalyanam:

Our beloved Mother Sri Go:da: De:vi (A:nda:l) performed a vratham in the devotional service to Lord Sri Rangana;tha of Srirangam.  On behalf of all of us she prayed to Lord Rangana:tha to bless us to fulfill all our desires. These prayers were sung in the form of 30 ecstatic pasurams called “Thiruppa:vai”.

Appearing in a Thulasi garden to Her father Vishnu Chitta (Periya:lwa:r) in Sra:vana ma:sam, pu:rva phalguni nakshathram, more than 5000 years ago in Srivilliputthur. She is an incarnation of Sri Bhu:de:vi (the eternal consort of Lord Na:ra:yana). Her devotion and pure love towards Lord Rangana:tha knew no bounds. It was Go:da: de:vi’s pure desire to get married to Lord Rangana:tha. She always felt that she belonged to none other than Sri Rangana:tha. To the extent that she wore the garlands that Periya:lwar used to prepare to be taken for Lord Rangana:tha.  To fulfill this pure desire of our mother, Lord Rangana:tha asked Periyalwar to bring Go:da: de:v:i to Srirangam from Srivilliputtur. Once she entered the sanctum where Sri Rangana:tha resides, due to his mercy she attained mo:ksham in front of all the devotees. Periya:lwa:r pleaded Sri Rangana:tha for his daughter. To this Lord Rangana:tha asked Periya:lwa:r to go back to Srivilliputthur to find her.

When Periya:lwa:r arrived back home to Srivilliputthur he saw Sri:manna:ra:yana on His Garuda along with Go:da: De:vi. To this day we can have their divine darshan in this holy place of Srivilliputthur.
