The Supreme Personality of Godhead , out of HIS causeless mercy appeared as Sri Krishna in Vraj bhoomi during Dwapara yugam to protect the good and destroy the evil.  Sri Krishnavataaram is considered as the poornavataram amongst the innumerable avatarams taken by Mahavishnu.


Lord Krishna appeared as the eighth son to Devaki and Vasudevar but as per HIS instructions, Vasudevar carried the just born little child across Yamuna river and exchanged HIM with a just born girl child who was Yogamaya.


 Sri Krishna was very affectionately brought up by HIS foster parents-Nand Maharaja and Mother Yashodha in Gokulam for the first few years  and then later shifted to Vrindavan where the Lord lived with the gopis till the age of 10.  Gokulam is known as AAyarpaadi.

The Pancha samaskara Vybhavam is enacted under tree very same Maghizam tree where original event took place long long ago every year .


It was during the time , when the news came that  Swamy Alavandar was  sick and desired to meet  Swamy Ramanuja .   Swamy Ramanuja meanwhile had association of the great devotee Swamy  Tirukkachi Nambi  who obtained from Lord Varadaraja the famous ‘ Six Words ‘ and    the six words provided the guidelines for   Swamy Ramanuja  to follow.

( i ) that Lord  Sriman Narayana is the Paramatma.  (ii ) that the individual souls were different from Paramatma.  (iii) that Prapatti is the means to attain salvation.  (iv)  that the last remembrance of the Lord on the part of the departing  soul was not necessary.  (v)   that Moksha can be obtained only on laying off the mortal coils        (Videha Mukti) and   (vi)  Ramanuja   should take refuge at the feet of Periya Nambi.


Accordingly,  when he  met  Periya Nambi at Madurantakam he pleaded to perform Samashranayam without wasting any time . And thus  under the shade of  Vakula tree Periya Nambi performed Pancha Samskara to him.


As he was initiated  into the esoteric of Dvaya Mantra at Madurantakam, the place came to be known as  “Dvayam Vilaindha Tiruppathi
