Sri Nandhana Varusha Pirappu Wishes to our readers


Happy New Year “Nandana” ( நந்தன , नन्दन )

May we all have the divine shower of Perumal, Thayar and Acharyas in this Sri Nandhana Varusha Pirappu!

Wishing all readers a Happy Nandhana New year wishes. We will be shortly adding panchangam for this new year.

Here is an articles in tamil describing about Chithirai month (Apr-May) and its significance.

Nandana which is placed 26th in our 60-year cycle. Nandana is among the diverse characteristic names (नामानि गौणानि) 

of the Lord ~~ आनन्दो नन्दनो  नन्द: सत्यधर्मा त्रिविक्रम: ।

The auspicious number 26 signifies Lord who animates the twenty-five “tattva” (தத்வம், तत्त्वम्) and is the primary source and substance (प्रधानम् / निदानम्) and shelter  (परं निधानम्) of all being.  प्रधानपुरुषेश्वर: (Sahasra-naamam), त्वमस्य विश्वस्य परं निधानम् (Srimad Bhagavad-Geetaa), गुणा: प्रधानम् पुरुष: परंपदम्  — ते विभूतय: (श्री यामुनार्य – ஆளவந்தார்).
The New Year Day is known as “vishuva punya-kaalam” (विषुव पुण्यकालम् ~ same as बिहु in Assam), and carries this year the asterism of poorva-aashaadham (பூராடம், पूर्वाषाढम् ) on Friday of month Chitra / mesham, and corresponds to the Gregorian April 13 2012.   The New Year brings the promise of the earth being unceasingly, richly, fruitful ~ आनन्ददा धरा/जस्रं प्रजाभ्य: फलसंचयै:।

Time is identified with Sriman Narayana, and the Padma Puraanam declares that the twelve months go by the Lord’s twelve names beginning Keshava.   The five strands (पञ्चाङ्गम् ) of the day’s span are, each, marked out as Vishnu ~~ 

तिथिर्विष्णुस्तथा वारो नक्षत्रं विष्णुरेव च । योगश्च करणं चैव सर्वं विष्णुमयं जगत् ।।

(திதி விஷ்ணுவாகும்.    கிழமையும், நக்ஷத்ரமும்  விஷ்ணுவே.   யோகமும் கரணமும் , அவ்வாறே அனைத்துலகும், விஷ்ணுமயமானதே.)
