Darshan of Kumbabaiaheakam is a blessing and the dharshan of kumbaabishekam of a sacred Ishwaram like Koneswaram is indeed a greater blessing. The divine energy of the shrine is sanctified by the ceremony and the chanting of the manthras to radiate for the well being of humanity.
We, the Hindus, not only of Trincomalee and Sri Lanka but also of the whole world, are highly indebted to the Trustees of Koneswaram Paripalana Sabhai not only for the conduct of the Kumbaabishekam but much more than that for the dedication with which they conduct the affairs of this ancient holy shrine in adherence with the precepts of Saivaite rituals and restore its pristine glory.
Om Shanthy! Om Shnathy! Om Shanthy!
