Prayers For Vikram
People & Organisations Across India Are Praying and Hoping That Isro Will Re-establish Contact With the Lander
SEEKING the Moon god Chandran's blessings for Indian space agency establishing communication links with the Chandrayaan-2 moon lander Vikram, special ‘abhishekam’ was held at the Chandranaar Temple in Tamil Nadu's Thanjavur district, a temple official said.

“In the morning we had special abhishekam for the blessings of Chandran so that communication link can be established with Vikram,” V. Kannan, Manager at the Sri Kailasanathar Temple or Chandranaar Temple said. He said it was unfortunate that Vikram had some problems.

According to him, Monday is a special day for Chandran God. Chandran is also known as ‘Thingal’ in Tamil and Monday in Tamil is ‘Thingal’.

Early on September 7, Vikram while on its descent to soft land on the lunar's south polar region apparently lost control and crash landed on the lunar surface snapping communication links.
