The Adipooram festival was celebrated on 11th August 2002 at the Clarinda Primary School hall, Centre Road, Clayton. The ceremony commenced with participation of all Sakthis in joint prayers to Adhiparasakthi &Thiru Adigalar.
On this day the special offering to Adhiparasakthi was the rice pooridge. The pooridge was made in the early hours on festival day in the school premises.
Each Sakthi carried the pot, containing the pooridge on his or her head, around the school premises, to the mandapam for offering. Joint prayers were said, after which the devotees stood in line to partake in the pooridge. This was finally followed by an annadhanam to all devotees.
On this special day the mandram published the Spiritual News Letter in name of 'AUM SAKTHI'. This letter consists of Mandram activities &spiritual articles, Three issues will be published annually.
This year the number of Sakthis who participated in the festival, was almost double that of last year. We earnestly hope that next year there will be a larger number of Sakthis attending the festival. May Annai's blessings be showered on all her devotees.
