Chitra Pournami on April 20, 2008

Dear members:

The auspicious Chitra Pournami vrattam falls on April 20, 2008 this year. For those in India who are performing regular Pournami Pooja every month, the monthly Pournami Pooja should be done on April 19, 2008 night while the Chitra Gupta Pooja should be done on April 20, 2008 morning. For those in the US, both fall on the same day, i.e. April 19, 2008. So, they should perform the Chitra Gupta Pooja in the morning of April 19, 2008 and the monthly Pournami pooja on the night of April 19, 2008. Those in the far eastern longitudes (East of India - countries like Australia, New Zealand, etc.) should perform both ChitraGupta Pooja and Chitra Pournami festivals on April 20, 2008.


It is customary to eat curd rice (preferably curd of buffalo!) without salt on that day and to fast without eating anything else. In any case, avoiding salt in food items throughout the day is recommended on that day.

Special worship is done in Honour of Lord ChitraGupta - the Divine Accountant - who keeps an account of our karmas, and appeals for forgiveness for our shortcomings are raised on this day. Those who can afford a visit, should pay a visit to Kanchipuram Chitra Gupta temple -an ancient one which is very ancient and powerful.

Chitra Gupta can be easily pleased by uttering the following names:

"Om Chitraaya namah"
"Om Chitraguptaaya namah"
"Om Karma saakshine namah"
"Om nirdoshaaya namah"
"Om Kaarunya roopine namah"
"Om Dharmaraaja parivaarakaaya namah"

While reciting these names, Chitra Gupta should be meditated upon as a short human form attired in traditional Indian attire with a turban, shining ear rings, and having a bunch of palm leaf scrolls and a pen for writing karmic accounts. His consort if Goddess Karnaambikai.

The day should be spent by giving contributions to charities, doing meritorious deeds as per one's convenience, and spending the day in contemplation and introspection with the firm affirmation to reduce performance of sinful activities in the coming year.

Performance of this Chitra Pournami vrattam is a powerful remedy for afflictions of ketu in the horoscope.
