Hi , I am Sivapriya from Canada . I am very passionate about our traditions and have been keeping golu from childhood. After getting married in 2015 I continued the same . I have been keeping golu for the past six years in Canada since we moved in 2016 . This year our golu theme is Nachiyar Thirukolam . We have depicted the story of how Srirangam Namperumal comes as thayar to gain Parasura bhatter's bhakthi . So every year the day before vaikunda ekadasi , namperumal is dressped as thayar in Mohini thirukolam/ Nachiyar thirukolam .We also depicted the arayar sevai that takes place during the vaikunda ekadasi utsavam . The recital of 4000 divya prabhandham on those 21 days , on the first 10 days they recite divya prabhandham during the day - Pagal pathu and after ekadasi they recite in the evening which is known as Raa pathu .We have also kept the 12 Alwars and a vaishnava gurukulam . The top being Srirangam Ranganathar . Followed by namperumal rathangi sevai . We have also prepared Nachiyar thirukolam from scratch like the utsavar in Srirangam and have decorated as in a oonjal sevai.
On the other end we have our traditional 5 step golu with kalasam ,Bramotsavam , kamatchi , Namakal anjeneyar ,dasavatharam ,ashtalakshmi chettiyar chettichi , kalyanam set , village set and cricket set . In addition to all we have also kept Mysore dussera celebration as a new set .
