Karthikai deepam in December 2011


Dear Members:

Tiruvannamalai Deepam is observed on December 8, 2011 and sarvaalaya Deepam is observed on December 10, 2011.


Those who wish to observe the Deepam on December 10, 2011 due to traditions associated with their family (i.e. instead of Tiruvannamalai Deepam) must light the lamps in the period between 5:45 p.m. and 6:15 p.m., IST i.e. before the beginning of lunar eclipse on December 10, 2011.

Lighting deepam praying for wisdom in our life, good fortune and prosperity in the family, and peace of souls is auspicious on this occasion - since it marks the day when our Lord appeared as a Huge Pillar of Light of a magnitude that even Lord Vishnu and Lord Brahma could not Fathom the extent of His Form completely. To commemorate that "Adi Mudi kaana perunthOtram" - The Form with Unfathomable Beginning and End- every year a grand jyothi is lit atop the Holy Arunaachala Hills.

Lord Muruga (also called Kartikeya, Skanda, etc.) is also to be venerated on this day since this day marks the day when His six Forms were united into a single body and six-heads by the Embrace of Goddess Shakti. This is symbolic of Focussing of our 5 indriyaas and the sixth faculty of Reasoning by God's Grace to make ourselves fit for accomplishment of tasks (just as Lord Muruga's six forms united into Shanmugha Form with which He annihilated demons - the purpose of His Genesis straight from Lord Shiva's Third Eye).

May the Light of Wisdom dawn on all of us by Divine Grace.
