This is regarding an important austerity - Kaaradayaan nOnbu on March 14, 2009. This is to be observed on March 14, 2009 in all places around the globe except in USA ,Canada, Caribbean Isles, and other places in the American continents (they have to observe this at late night on March 13, 2009).


It is an auspicious day for women to pray for the welfare and longevityof their husbands. It is by the power of this observance that the legendary Saavitri got the spiritual power to win back the life of Satyaavaan - her husband who was cursed with a short life. May our women members observe the austerity as per their familytraditions for the welfare of their husbands.



It is customary for ladies to offer Mangala Gowri pooja and then tie the Holy Pooja thread on self praying for husband's longevity, and for happy marital life. The offering is "kaara adai" (a special flour delicacy made with rice flour, jaggery, and kaaraamani - a red colour dried bean), and fresh butter; women pray saying "I am offering this kaara adai and unmelted butter to Thee; please ensure that my husband never separates from me," and then tie the Holy thread on their selves.



This day happens to be Shadsheethi punya kaalam also (This is to be observed on March 14, 2009 throughout the world) - an auspiciousday when any meritorious deed gets manifold positive effects. This is an auspicious day for beginning new japa recitations, for charitable donations (Even if you are donating to secular charities with a good intent, it is still better to donate on this day to reap manifold karmic benefits; I am writing this because I have seen many people donate a portion of their salaries to charities; if this monthly donation can be done on such auspicious days like this shadsheethi punya kaalam, it will be good for them from a karmic point of view).


May our members become recipients of Divine Grace and Dharma Devataa by observing these auspicious spiritual rituals to the extent possible.


Blessed be.

Pandit R.DAKSHINAMOORTHI.
