Thai Poosam on January 29/ January 30, 2010


Thai Poosam is a festival dedicated in Honour of Lord Skanda - the Son of Lord Shiva. It is believed that Lord Skanda put an end to the atrocities of the demon Taarakaasura on this day with the Blessings of His Divine Parents - Lord Shiva and Goddess Shakti.


Float-festival is observed in Madurai Meenaakshi -SundarEshwarar temple on this day; all major Muruga temples celebrate this festival in a grand manner.


Recital of mantras like Kanda Shashti kavacham, Kandar Anubhooti, Kandar Kali Vennbaa, Tirumurugaarruppadai, etc. will be very auspicious on this day. Even if you do not know any of these (these are all powerful Tamil Hymns and obviously persons who don't have Tamil as Mother Tongue may not be comfortable with these), you can recite "Om Skanda GuravE namah" "Om kumaaraaya namah" "Om DhandapaanayE namah" "Om satrusamhaaraaya namah" "Om shakti hastaaya namah" etc. that are His powerful names.


If you have inimical activity in your life and are feeling anxious and insecure, you may try worshipping Lord Skanda (lord Muruga) today. Even Saatwik persons may pray for overcoming enemies.....afterall, our greatest enemies are within ourselves - Fear, Pride, Arrogance, Lust, Illusion, etc.


Thai poosam is celebrated on January 30, 2010 in all countries, except for those living in the American continents (North and South America, carribeans, etc.). Those living in the United states should celebrate it on January 29, 2010 itself.


May our members utilize these spiritually significant days for Divine Contemplation and become recipients of Divine Grace which is our Real Wealth and which will NEVER suffer recessionary trends!

Blessed be.

I was able to chant Subramnyam Ashtakam half an hour before the end of Jan 29, the day Thai Poosam is supposed to celebrate here in US.

It must be the divine will of Lord Of Valli who must have made me do it.

Thanks to you too.Stay blessed.

Namaskaar

I have a general doubt.Is it of any use if you hear any sacred mantras during study-Normally I hear some music sometimes.Is it of any benefit hearing Lalitha Sahasranam Stotra,Aditya Hridaya Stotram or Hanuman Chalisa?

Irrespective of anything,I seem to be picking up the slokas subconsciously.I was able to memorize around 10 % of Laitha Sahasranam Stotra without putting any effort?

I was just wondering whether there is any benefit to mind other than easier memorization?
