This is regarding an important austerity - Kaaradayaan nOnbu on March 14, 2010. This is to be observed on March 14, 2010 in all places around the globe except in Far East countries, Australia,New Zealand and Fiji where they have to be observe it on March 15, 2010 - during Brahma Muhurtha.

The best time to observe this nonbu is between 8:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. Indian Standard time for those living in India. Please note that as this is to be observed at the junction of sidereal solar months of Aquarius and Pisces, it is to be observed just 2 hours prior to actual entry of Sun into sidereal Pisces i.e. at 10:30 p.m. IST - which is 5:30 hours East time from GMT on March 14, 2010 (you may calculate the respective local time at your place based on this, and calculate the time when this is to be observed at your place).

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, again excepting Far East countries, Australia, New Zealand, and Fiji - where this should be observed on March 15, 2010) - an auspicious day 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.
