Education, which cannot give peace to the soul or cannot give the knowledge of the Self and the inner satisfaction, is not education. Education, which cannot wipe the tears of others, known or unknown, is not education. Education is understanding the situation - leading the life that can make the life, the Life Divine, where the ultimate goal of the life is the God-Realisation.

THREE STAGES OF HUMAN EVOLUTION

- Animal to Man ( Mooladhara to Anahata )
- Man to Man ( Anahata to Ajna )
- Man to Divine ( Ajna to Sahasrara )

GOLDEN AGE / SATYUGAM
During 2012, the Sun, Earth and Karthigai star, will be in alignment resulting in more of the grace light entering the Earth plane. Thereafter, it is predicted that the Karthigai - Lord Murugan energy will be responsible for the transformation of the planet and of the genetic evolution of the human species into Gods and Goddesses status. This energy will allow humans to return to their original blueprint. The most important thing to remember about these new energies is to stay conscious and match our frequency to receieve it through proper worships, rituals, yoga and mystical knowledge according to great siddha masters.

ANCIENT SIDDHA MASTERS
The Siddhas were scientists, particularly in their investigations into chemistry, astronomy, plants, human anatomy and physiology. They applied their extraordinary powers, developed through intensive yogis practices, to research these areas on atomic and universal levels without the use of sophisticated equipment. In the long linege of Siddhas, one does not know when they came into earth's existance. Whether they still exist or are they Ascended masters teaching humanity the various sciences and philosophy, will perhaps, be never known.


SIDDHAS TEACHINGS
In the teachings of the Siddhas the human body is a temple of God. Man is a miniature representation of Paramatma or Supreme Intelligence. The purpose of life is to realize God.To manifest that realization in all planes of existence.

SIDDHAS MEDICINE
Using special salts as well as herbal formulae the Siddhas developed the unique science of rejuvenation, known as "kaya kalpa", which allowed them to prolong their lives until the long term effects of Kriya Kundalini Pranayama and similar yogic practices could complete the process of transformation, bringing about physical immortality.

Siddhas followed the ancient Guru- disciple apprenticeship method. They revealed their secrets to those students whom they felt could be trusted not to misuse the science. The science of Kaya kalpa was limited to those great sages. who were prepared for the uplifting of humanity. Ayurveda came much later as discipline.

SIDDHAS SECRET KNOWLEDGE
The Siddhas had vast knowledge of human anatomy. Their single-minded concentration was unique. It was was achieved with perfection. Their literature on medicine was extensive. The Siddhas were a close-knit community and preferred to preserve their knowledge. They reduced this knowledge to codes and symbols and their literature was steeped in mysticism. Only a Siddha can decode the writings of a Siddha. A beginner could not gain any appreciable knowledge without the Siddha accepting him as a student.

THE SCIENCE OF YOGA
Siddhas such as Thirumoolar, Agastyar, Boganathar, and many more had realized their capacity for experiencing and manifesting the Divine. This was not only limited to the spiritual plane of existence. The Cosmic Spirit would descend into the more lower and gross planes of consciousness, the intellectual, mental, and physical bodies. This for us is a limiting thought as our yogic parasites are not as intense as the Siddha. With progressive surrender of their being , their ego and their very lives the Divine would indeed transform them. With intense practices of various Kriyas, hatha and bhakti yoga, meditation, mantras and Kriya Kundalini Pranayama they merged with the Cosmic Spirit . This was race against time as the natural breakdown of cells, catabolism, had to be reversed to anabolism to prolong the extent of their age. They had to complete the Divine transformation. With Kriya Kundalini yoga and using specific herbal and mineral salts they were able to prolong their youth for the Ultimate transformation.

SIDDHANTHAM
The Universe was created out of a Cosmic Thought . No civilization be it the Inca, Atlantis or Egyptian had such a precise knowledge as the Siddhas. They were proficient in the science of longevity or deathless state, alchemy, medicine and physics.

How Rahu Ketu Transit from 18th August 2017 will Affect your Lives?



How Rahu Ketu Transit into Kadakam - (Cancer) and Makaram - (Capricorn) on 18th August 2017 will Affect your Lives?
- By Vijayakumar Alagappan www.iksacademy.com

In Indian astrology the lunar nodes, known as Rahu and Ketu, have special powers in a chart. Often referred to as our karmic destiny, they indicate our greatest gifts and our darkest issues. In prediction they are where the annual eclipses fall, and indicate the areas of our life that involve the most transformation for that year. When the lunar nodes are combined with another planet they take on the quality of that planet. Each combination will produce very different results.

The Moon’s orbit around the Earth intersects the ecliptic at two points. These two points are the nodes of the Moon. The north node of the Moon (Rahu) is where the Moon crosses from south to north, called the ascending node. This symbolizes the birth into the material manifestation. The south node (Ketu) is where the Moon crosses from north to south, called the descending node. This symbolizes our leaving the material plane for the spiritual realm. So Rahu takes us into the physical world and Ketu takes us out of it.

All this represents the cycles of birth and death into and out of this world. Rahu and Ketu are the indicators of destiny and fate, symbolizing our entrapment in this physical plane. These shadow planets control us by our desires. Our desires are our karmas. Our destiny is to release the chains this world has cast upon us. It is like the serpent’s bite. The poisonous venom intoxicates us into this world. Rahu takes us under its spell with the illusions of this world, the promise of happiness, leaving us with a sense of wanting: “If I could only have more of the things that give me pleasure”. But of course, this only leads to insatiable desires. We can never have enough. This is the venomous bite of Rahu. Conversely Ketu strips us of the objects of our desires, revealing that nothing in this world gives us security and permanence. It is essentially the process of enlightenment, when we come to realize that ultimately, it is all an illusion. Nothing of this material world lasts, therefore; it is all an illusion or Maya. Ketu is the bringer of enlightenment through the realization of this truth. Ketu is the release of this world.

Rahu and Ketu, the two Nodes of the Moon, take about 18 months to transit through a sign. Rahu enters in Kadakam -  and Ketu enters in Makaram on 18th August 2017 it will stay there up to 18 months. 

The following is a general prediction based on this transit of the nodes. This is based on your natal moon sign (Rashi) placement. In any case, the specific results are heavily dependent on the basic strength of the natal chart and also the running mahadasha of the individual. A strong natal chart is a blessing from the heavens and minimizes all negativity. Also, as there are seven other planets in Indian astrology, their placements and transits have to be taken into account for an accurate prediction.

know. It is the push and pull of Rahu obsession and Ketu doubt teaches us the lesson of life so that we can liberate from this world and be one/merge with the universe.

Eclipse ( Grahanam ) and Remedies

Eclipses (Grahanam) and How to Do Remedies (Pariharam) During Eclipse - By Vijayakumar Alagappan



The Hindu scriptures, the Purãnam (written by Veda Vyasar), narrate the story of how the eclipse came into existence: Eclipses have fascinated man since time immemorial, but the real scientific cause was known to Siddhas, Yogis, Rishis and Saddhus, even during ancient times. In order to make matters clear to young children, they used to tell the story of how Rahu, the dragon would swallow up the Moon or Sun during eclipse time and release them after some time. The story goes that Rahu sat for a feast disguised as a Deva (though he was an Asura), when Lord Vishnu in His Mohini Avatar distributed nectar to the Devas which was obtained at the time of churning of the Milky Ocean. Lord Surya-Sun along Lord Chandra-Moon  exposed the designs of Rahu and hence, the story goes, Rahu chooses to punish the luminaries for this, as an act of revenge. In India, all scientific truths are imbibed in our routine life, by explaining then through Puranic stories. Through tradition or custom, all scientific truths are brought to the stage of implementation in day to day life. Therein lies the wisdom of our great Siddhas, Yogis, Rishis and Saddhus.




Performing Pariharam-Remedies during Eclipse
Persuing spiritual activities, especially doing Japa of mantras, is recommended during the eclipse period. In order to overcome adverse effects of eclipses, one should bathe in holy waters, offering tarpanam to departed ancestors and do some charities.Those who are running the major or sub periods of Rahu or Ketu should chant Rahu mantra, Nagaraja mantra or Goddess Durga mantra (Hmmm Dum Durgaya Namaha) to get rid of the afflictions.Those facing hurdles in marriage or carrier also should take to worship during eclipse at home (generally temples will be closed during eclipse). After the eclipse is over, take bath again and eat the food, which is prepared fresh after the eclipse.
                       

The most recommended ritual to be done on this day is Tarpanam, the ritual to appease the souls of your ancestors. The gateway to heaven is the Sun and Moon. During eclipse, the gates open and the souls visit the earth plane making it the right time to access their blessings and divine energy.

Holy Dips and Items Recommended for Charity during Eclipse

It is believed that during an eclipse all the water becomes as pure as the water of the holy river Ganga. Any surging water (say, waterfall or a fountain) or water in the lakes, river and the seas is regarded as a good omen, its auspiciousness increasing in the above sequence. The more pious may go to some sacred place or to the nearest seashore for taking a holy bath. There is a strong belief that any donation given during the eclipse hours is most auspicious and valuables such as money, clothes, cows, horses, land and gold are to be gifted away.

Charity of ten items is recommended, to ward off inauspicious effects arising out of eclipse are as follows:
- Cow : (people who cannot afford to give a cow, which is expensive, can substitute this by giving a coconut)
- Sesame
- Land (since land is expensive Sandal Stick is given as a substitute for land)
- Gold (one gram piece of gold are available in shops and they are fit to be donated)
- Ghee
- Clothes
- Grain
- Jaggery
- Silver Vessel
- Salt

Charity of five items is recommended are as follows:
- Lamp
- Book
- Bell
- Cloth
- Vessel

All Hindu Temples remain closed during Surya Grahanam. Temples open only after proper rituals are performed to get rid of the ill effects of the Surya Grahanam. However, some Lord Shiva temples remain open during Surya Grahanam as Lord Shiva Himself is an embodiment of darkness.

Why mantras should be chanted during eclipse times?
During eclipse, the sound vibrations get intensified. As a result, the person who recites a mantra gets manifold benefits than while it on a normal day. There is a second version to this also. When there is an eclipse, both the Sun and Moon are afflicted by Rahu or Ketu. So a person's mind will not function well. If he takes a decision at that time, it will prove wrong, because mind is affected at that time. To prevent him from working at that time, the mind should be diverted to something else. So it is ordained that some spiritual karma like chanting of mantras should be done, at the time of eclipse. Aditya Hridayam, Gayatri Mantra or Vishnu Gayathri mantra are also gives beneficial effects when chanted at the time of eclipse.
                                         
Preservation of Food Items
It is also said food items get contaminated, when the rays emanating during the time of eclipse pervade the atmosphere. Herein lies the utility and value of Darbha grass. Darbha / Kusha grass grows freely in hot and dry places. It is said that if we put a single Darbha grass on food items, that enough to protect it harmful efforts of eclipse. Darbha grass is also used in many religious functions. It has even been proved scientifically that even X-ray radiation can be absorbed by Darbha grass. This grass should be freely used to protect foodstuffs during times of eclipse.

Do's and Dont's during Grahanam
- avoid performing any important work or deal
- bath before and after grahanam; taking a dip in rivers, water falls or lakes is highly auspicious
- avoid eating during and the food which is cooked before grahanam
- take the food which is cooked after grahanam
- do not sleep during the grahanam
- do not go outside during Grahanam

Lighting of Lemon Ghee lamps during the eclipse time will also be very useful in weakening the negative effects of Rahu. Those belonging to Jyesta (Kettai) & Moola stars should avoid looking/getting exposed to the Eclipse. Specific prayers to Goddess Durga (for Rahu), Lord Sri Krishna and Lord Shiva (For Moon), Lord Hanuman, Moon God are required to be made during eclipse. For those under the constellation of Moola whose star lord is Ketu it is suggested to pray Lord Ganapathi also during eclipse time.

Understanding the Nodes - Rahu and Ketu

Understanding Rahu and Ketu
by Vijayakumar Alagappan




Rahu and Ketu, the North and South Nodes of the Moon, are the most interesting and mysterious planets in Indian Astrology. In the group of planets referred to in Indian astrology, rahu and Ketu are considered as the only two planet is not worshipped as a god in Indian mythology. They do not own any signs, but they do own nakshatras.


In Indian astrology the lunar nodes, known as Rahu and Ketu, have special powers in a chart. Often referred to as our karmic destiny, they indicate our greatest gifts and our darkest issues. In prediction they are where the annual eclipses fall, and indicate the areas of our life that involve the most transformation for that year. When the lunar nodes are combined with another planet they take on the quality of that planet. Each combination will produce very different results.

The Moon’s orbit around the Earth intersects the ecliptic at two points. These two points are the nodes of the Moon. The north node of the Moon (Rahu) is where the Moon crosses from south to north, called the ascending node. This symbolizes the birth into the material manifestation. The south node (Ketu) is where the Moon crosses from north to south, called the descending node. This symbolizes our leaving the material plane for the spiritual realm. So Rahu takes us into the physical world and Ketu takes us out of it.

Actually in reality, the so called North Node Rahu and South Node Ketu are the North and South Poles of our Earth only, respectively. We are all the inhabitants of the planets Rahu and Ketu only.

All this represents the cycles of birth and death into and out of this world. Rahu and Ketu are the indicators of destiny and fate, symbolizing our entrapment in this physical plane. These shadow planets control us by our desires. Our desires are our karmas. Our destiny is to release the chains this world has cast upon us. It is like the serpent’s bite. The poisonous venom intoxicates us into this world. Rahu takes us under its spell with the illusions of this world, the promise of happiness, leaving us with a sense of wanting: “If I could only have more of the things that give me pleasure”. But of course, this only leads to insatiable desires. We can never have enough. This is the venomous bite of Rahu. Conversely Ketu strips us of the objects of our desires, revealing that nothing in this world gives us security and permanence. It is essentially the process of enlightenment, when we come to realize that ultimately, it is all an illusion. Nothing of this material world lasts, therefore; it is all an illusion or Maya. Ketu is the bringer of enlightenment through the realization of this truth. Ketu is the release of this world.
 
The strength of Rahu and Ketu when compared to other planets is very high by 1000000 times or more.

If Rahu is well-placed in a horoscope, it will bring power and material success. If it is not well-disposed, it can cause alot of problems. One may expect professional setbacks, loss of work and friends, and the possible break-up of a marriage during its major and sub-periods. Rahu is said to give similar effects as Saturnn. If Ketu well-placed, it will works towards providing knowledge and moksha, the final liberation from cycle of birth and death. A poorly disposed Ketu can also create total chaos. There may be monetary setbacks,personal unhappiness  or a feeling of alienation, which can even result in withdrawal from materialistic life. It is said to produce the same effects as Mars.

Rahu and Ketu from Scientific View
The nodal points of the Moon, what we call Rahu and Ketu, are infact, clubs of magnetic and 
gravitational forces of two celestial bodies, the Moon and Earth and hence are very influential upon 
the life of mankind. These points Affect our central nervous system as well as sympathetic and para 
sympathetic nervous system, which work on the principles of electromagnetic systems. Consequently, they have direct impacts on the generation of signals of information in neurons and 
neurotransmitters and thier movement from brain to various parts of our body and back to the brain. 
In this way, these nodal points (Rahu and Ketu) are psychosomatic, which govern not only stress 
level of our mind, but also the activities of hormones, blood circulation and function of the heart.

Rahu and Ketu from Spiritual View
Rahu is the immature child with in us, he want everything which he like. He is our deepest subconscious material desire. Rahu is obsession over the things that we need to learn a soul lesson in this life, so that eventually we are free of them, but usually through many painful mistakes and subconscious imagined fears, hypnotic attachments. Ketu is the inner parents who knows everything. Ketu 
is our past life experience which we already know. This is why Ketu brings doubt and sharp criticism to the areas of life where he sitting in the birth chart. He is eternally unsatisfied, he only observe what missing. Both Nodes are the illusion of what we don't know and what we know. It is the push and 
pull of Rahu obsession and Ketu doubt teaches us the lesson of life so that we can liberate from this world and be one/merge with universes. 

What is Naga Dosha caused by Rahu and Ketu?

Naga Chaturthi & Naga Panchami - (26th July & 27th July 2017)


Appease the Snake Planets to Live a Successfull Life

Naga Chaturthi and Panchami comes on the fourth and fifth day after Adi month Ammavasai in the 
month of Adi. Naga Chathurti if for Ketu and Naga Panchami is for Rahu. Rahu and Ketu are the 
indicators of destiny and fate, symbolizing our entrapment in this physical plane. These shadow planets control us by our desires. Our desires are our karmas. Our destiny is to release the chains this world has cast upon us. It is like the serpent’s bite. The poisonous venom intoxicates us into this world. 
Rahu takes us under its spell with the illusions of this world, the promise of happiness, leaving us 
with a sense of wanting: “If I could only have more of the things that give me pleasure”. But of 
course, this only leads to insatiable desires. We can never have enough. This is the venomous bite of Rahu. Conversely Ketu strips us of the objects of our desires, revealing that nothing in this world gives us security and permanence. It is essentially the process of enlightenment, when we come to realize that ultimately, it is all an illusion. Nothing of this material world lasts, therefore; it is all an illusion 
or Maya. Ketu is the bringer of enlightenment through the realization of this truth. Ketu is the release of this world. 

If you feel that you lag behind in career, facing marital trouble or financial difficulties then Rahu and Ketu of your Birth Chart might be the reason behind it. Rahu and Ketu are the snake planets that 
represent the north and south nodes of the moon. 

They are together seen as the cause behind most of the psychological disorders, attraction to the 
darker side of life, health ailments, and other unfavorable events. These planets lie on the extreme ends. When perfectly pitched they bring about success and happiness in volumes; when unstably placed 
they affect the happiness and success factors of life.


Worshiping Rahu and Ketu on their special day will liberate you from misfortunes, negative forces and other perils of your life. Naga Panchami is that special occasion for you to transform your life for the better. On the day of Naga Panchami, your prayers will appease Rahu and Ketu; they in turn will heal your relationship problems, career disturbances and gift you with a hassle free life.

                                             
                  A large serpent was used to churn the ocean to produce ambrosia (Samudra Mathana)

A snake-bill (sacred mud) is powerful as a temple  
                                   
What to do on Naga Panchami Day?

- Donate a small Silver snake to a priest at Lord Muruga or Nagaraja temple with some money. This will reduce the affliction of Naga dosha
- Nagaraja is the deity bestowing progeny and family welfare. Perform Nagaraja pooja in your home by some learned priests.
- Visit Rameshwaram, Devipattinam or the Navagraha temples around Kumbakonam with your 
spouse and offer prayers to the devatas.
- Observe fasting on Naga-Panchami day and recite Nagamatha mantra 108 times ‘ Hmmm / (Om) Nageswariyai Namaha
- Visit Nageswary temple and do milk abishegam ritual

Adi Masam Velli - Significance of Goddess worships during Adi Month Fridays


[180px-Tridevi.png]

Rise of Goddess Consciousness
The Sanskrit term 'Shakti' means 'power'. There is a supreme power behind this universe that is expressed in many varied ways. Heat, light, lightning - all these are expressions of just that power.

Shakti is the creator of the universe. The universe is her form. She is the foundation of the world and forms of the body. Shakti is the form of all things that live and move in the world. Goddess energy or Shakti is the ever present dynamic force which activates this world. It is immanent in every being and the Universe. Goddesses are revered and celebrated so that they bless us with both material and spiritual abundance.

This year Adi Month start from 17 July to 16 August 2016

Not many people have the grace to perform true Shakti worship. The month Adi is special for Goddess worships since in this month , the Sun will be in the sign Kadakam which is ruling by planet Moon (Moon is belongs to Goddess). Shakti has manifested in various forms like Durga, Kali, Lakshmi, Saraswati and so on. Shakti represents 3 potencies and they are Itcha Shakti, Kriya Shakti and Jnana Shakti.

As the whole world is under the influences of these energies, every human possesses these 3 Shaktis or powers:
1. Itcha Shakti is the will power, the desire or motivation which relates to the Mind.
2. Kriya Shakti is the power of action, the ability to act for the fulfillment of the desire that relates to physical body
3. Jnana Shakti is the power of knowledge, the capacity to know and recognize, which relates to the soul (Atma)

These 3 powers esoterically manifest in yourself as follows. There is the one you think you are (physical body), the one others think you are (mind) and the one you really are (principle of the soul or 'atma'). Everyone is essentially divine, but is unable to understand this by the very nature of being human.

Every year during Adi month (Mid July to Mid August) period the Sun moves towards the South and hence it is called the Dhakshinayana (Dhakshin: South; ayana: Travel).

The Tamil month of Adi (Mid July to Mid August) has a great significance for Shakti worship especially the Fridays that falls during this month. In this month the Sun Changes the direction of his chariot from north to south and the entire six months from Adi month is basically considered inauspicious since Sun moves towards debilitation. Hence starting from Adi month, it became a practice to indulge in increased religious practices to propitiate the deities, since the positive energy that is received fron Sun is lessening gradually.

The Fridays of Adi month are very auspicious for establishing your connection with the Goddess. The Siddhas brought the Goddess over to the earth plane to certain energy spots and enshrined them through esoteric processes. The Goddess stays in the form of a rock or statue that retains Her energy. It is important to visit those shrines and 'bond' with this creative Shakti energy.

How to invoke Goddesses energy that residing within you especially during Aadi month through mantras for true knowledge, health, material wealth and spiritual evolution?
1.Focus on your naval and recite 'Aim' for 1 minute to invoke Goddess Saraswathy for knowledge
2.Focus on your heart and recite 'Shreem' for 1 minute to invoke Goddess Lakshmy for health
3.Focus on your eye brow centre and recite 'Kleem' for 1 minute to invoke Goddess Parvathy for wealth
4.Focus on your crown head and recite 'Hreem' for 1 minute to invoke Goddess Durga for spiritual power.
Sound is only an expression of energy - shakti. By invoking these sounds with pure bhakti and your Guru's blessings, the Goddess will be attracted towards you to give Her immeasurable blessings.
Health will come with the right Knowledge and Wealth will come with the right Health. Once when you attain Wealth with true Knowledge and Health, the spiritual Wisdom (Guru) will come to you as a by product. Wait for your Guru and ask Him to initiate you into the secret path of Shakti. Universes itself the expression of Goddess Shakti (Sound/Natham).

Some important festivals celebrated in this month are as follows:
1. Aadi Pirappu : 
The first day of this month, usually falling on July 16 is celebrated as Aadi Pandigai or Aadi Pirappu, which is an important festival to most Tamils, especially newly-weds. The first of the month is marked with a special puja, followed by a feast with ‘payasam’ prepared with coconut milk, ‘puran poli’ and vadai. Traditionally, the family of a ‘pudhu maappillai’ 
(new son-in law) is invited to the girl’s house, where the couple is gifted new clothes and other
presents.

2.  Aadi Amavasai :  
New moon day in Aadi month dedicated to offering Tarpananam to departed ancestors. Once the Offering tharpanam on Aadi Amavasai day will give tremendous energy to your departed ancestors to shift to higher world. The souls of our ancestors that have been released, they are able to take their place as an elder in the spirit world and if they choose, they can become 
as a guardian spirit for their descendants. These are the ones who protect and guide us, the ones 
to whom we can appeal for divine intervention for our problems. In return we need to appease them 
through ancestral rituals like tharpanam. 

3. Aadi Pooram : This month is the birth (Avathara) month of Sri Andal (one among 12 great Alwars of 
Sri Vaishnavism). Legend has it that Vishnu Chitha (called as Periazhwar) was a sincere devotee of 
Lord Ranganatha of Srivilliputhur. He was childless for a very long time. His prayers were answered 
and on Aadi Pooram day, when the devotee was collecting flowers for his puja in his garden, he 
found a girl child. The child was named Kothai who grew up with devotion to Lord.

From Aadi month onwards untill Margazli month the Goddesses and Lord Murugan will take charge from the other Gods to protect and bless our Earth planet . So worshiping Lord Murugan and Goddesses during this month will give tremendous access to their energies and blessings.

Everyday, Vishnu Chitha made a garland of Thulasi leaves to offer to the deity at the temple. Kothai 
used to wear that before offering to the Lord. One day, the devotee happened to see her wearing this 
garland and so he replaced with another one. However, the Lord refused to accept the new one and 
said that He would only wear the garland worn by Kothai. Vishnu Chitha realized that his daughter is 
Goddess Maha Lakshmi herself. Andal then came to be known as Choodi Kodutha Sudarkodi, 
meaning ‘garland offered after being worn’. The 10th day is celebrated as Aadi Pooram day where 
Thirukalyanam (divine marriage of the God and the Goddess) is conducted. Special poojas are also 
conducted on this day. It is believed that if unmarried girls worship Goddess Andal on the 10th day ofAdi Pooram festvial, they will get married soon.
In the Saiva temples, this day is celebrated as the Valaikappu festival for Ambal, when glass bangles 
are offered to Ambal & then distributed to the devotees. These bangles are said to provide 
offsprings and generally protect us from all evils. (Valaikaappu is a festival when a pregnant woman wears glass bangles, the sound of which is said to protect her and the child from evil forces).



4. Varalakshmi Puja :
Worship of Goddess Lakshmi.
The Friday before the Full Moon, or Pournami day, of Tamil Month Aadi is chosen to perform Varalakshmi Puja. The corresponding month in the Kannada, Marathi and Telugu Calendar is the Shravan month. 
Worshipping Goddess Lakshmi on Varalakshmi Vrata day is equivalent to worshipping Ashtalaksmi – the eight goddesses of Wealth, Earth, Learning, Love, Fame, Peace, Pleasure, and Strength. The 
importance of Varalakshmi Puja is mentioned in the Skanda Purana. It is believed that importance of 
Varalakshmi Puja was narrated to Goddess Parvati by Lord Shiva. Goddess Parvati wanted to know about a Vrata that is highly beneficial to a woman, which will help her lead a happy and prosperous life on earth. 
Lord Shiva then mentioned about the Varamahalakshmi Vratam.
