Kumbiduthandam

This act of divine love has transformed the lives of many yearning devotees, who return year

  • Every three steps, around the temple, pause, pray and bow surrendering the sensual presence to attain spiritual liberation for generations.
  • Hands clasped in deep concentration, women on their knees, pay homage with their heads gently touching the ground. They replicate this with every three steps they take around Her temple. The Forehead, wrists, elbows, knees and heels feel the impulsive gravitational energy that holds their faith close together.
