This is regarding an important austerity - Kaaradayaan nOnbu on March 14, 2013 (Thursday). This is to be observed between 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. IST on March 14, 2013 by those living in India. Others living around the world must observe the vratam at the time corresponding to the above given time (i.e. at 4:30 p.m. IST what would be your local time at your place; observe the vrata at that time). This is because, this is one vrata that is to be observed at the time when Sun is about to leave sidereal Aquarius and enters sidereal Pisces (the vrata should begin at the time when Sun is still in sidereal Aquarius). So, it is to be observed at the same moment throughout the world (so the times will be different based on the local time zone - still it is at the same instant everywhere unlike other festivals that will be celebrated on different times based on local astronomical variables).

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 family traditions 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.

Unmarried women can also observe this vrata praying for the boon of good marital life and speedy settlement of marriage with a good spouse.




Blessed be.

Thank you for the information. My MIL mentioned that the sastrigal who gave the nombu saradu did not mention the time. Another thing is since my husband will be out of town, she had advised me to do it today itself. But from your writings, I think I should not do it at any time, but the prescribed time. Will do it tomorrow and also is it ok if I tried the saradu on myself. Can you please tell me if I can do so?

Pandit R. DAKSHINA MOORTHI said...

Dear Ms. Subha:

Yes, you can tie the saradu yourself or let your MIL or other elder ladies to tie it and bless you. You can talk over phone to your husband just before tying the saradu and get his consent/ blessings as if he is in person - if that is feasible.

If that is not feasible, it is very much okay, to tie the saradu yourself during the auspicious time mentioned at the junction of Maasi and Panguni.

Hope this helps.

Blessed be.
