Abishekam referrs to the Divine Lord taking bath, generally called as “ThiruManjanam” by Sri Vaishnavites. The Alwars considered Lord as their child, have sung Pasurams to bathe HIM. Mother YashodhA had Lord Krishna as her child. They poured their devotion and love upon him while bathing him and dress HIM with beautiful clothes, jewels.
