‘VARADARĀJAM UPĀSMAHĒ’ is a solo thematic presentation based on the ‘Brahmotsavam’ (the grand, ten-day annual temple festival) of Varadaraja Swamy temple situated in Kancheepuram, Tamil Nadu.

This production – by Harinie Jeevitha – has been woven in the solo format from the perspective of a devotee who has immense Bhakti and love for the Lord—the giver of infinite boons. Stringing together poetic works of Azhwars, Sri Vaishnava Acharyas & musical compositions of saint-poets in Sanskrit, Tamil & Telugu, ‘Varadarājam Upāsmahē’ is an attempt to encapsulate the different festivities of the Uthsavam.

Stringing together poetic works of Azhwars, Sri Vaishnava Acharyas & musical compositions of saint-poets in Sanskrit, Tamil & Telugu, ‘Varadarājam Upāsmahē’ is an attempt to encapsulate the different festivities of the Uthsavam in which the Lord visits His devotees in majestic, lightning-like strides seated on different Vahanams; the splendrous sight of the vigorous swinging or ‘Kulukkal’ of the Lord; and legends of the Lord’s benevolence.
