The Tamil Month of Purattasi

Kanchi Perundhevi ThayarPurattasi month falls between September 17th and October 17th 2014 . The month is dedicated to Hrishikeshan. This month Saturdays are considered holy and devotees throng Thirumalai for darshan. It is a practise in many families to offer Ma-Villaku for TiruVenkatamudiyan whose Tirunakshatram is Purattasi Tiruvonam. Then we have the nine days of Navarathri culminating in Vijaya Dasami.  Purattasi is all the more holier because of the avatharam of Swami Desikan, Brahmatantra Swathathra  Jeer, Adivan Sathakopan and Tirukudanthai Desikan. The following are the dates to be marked :

  •  17.9.2014- Purattasi masa pirappu.
  • 20.9.2014- Ekadashi
  • 23.9.2014- Sarva Mahalya Amavasya
