The Journey to Lord Murugan…

Kavadi bearers undergo intense preparation for weeks before the actual act. During this period, devotees fast by adopting a restricted vegetarian diet, practice celibacy, and meditate on God. 

The act of penance gives strength to the devotees to carry the kavadi without any hurdles, as their thought is only filled with love and devotion to Lord Murugan. #VelVelMuruga
