Happy New Year ~ heralding the birth of "Vijaya Varusham- 2013-14"

இனிய விஜய வருஷ தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு நல்வாழ்த்துக்கள்

A very happy Good Morning to all of you on this glorious ‘Tamil New Year Day’.  Today, 13th April 2013 marks the beginning of a new “Vijaya Varusham”

As most of you would know, Tamil years have beautiful names and are sixty in number…….. it is “Vijaya Varusham” now.  The previous five were : Sarvadhari, Virodhi, Vikruthi, Kara, Nandana [Nandana was the preceding year and in that order] ~ the 10 years that are to follow are : “Jaya, Manmatha, Dhunmukhi, He Vilambi, Vilambi, Vihari, Saarvari, Pilava, Suba Kruthu, Sobha kruthu”…… For the few of my friends, who may not readily know the tamil months ~ “Chithirai, Vaikasi, Aani,  Aadi, Aavani, Purattasi,  Aippasi, Karthigai, Margazhi,  Thai, Masi & Panguni’

On this day, all of us should visit Temples and pray for the benefit of all dear to us. Visit elders, fall at their feet  and get their blessings, greet all known people ‘Happy Tamil New Year” and do good things that would please others and be of help to society. 

Very many centuries ago, descended on this earth, the Greatest Maryada Purush, the Man broad chested as a lion, with long hands, who can handle Bow and arrow with great ease and precision, highly valorous still extremely conscientious, a great Scholar,  champion of self-righteousness; protector of His people and a Man who lived to show ‘How life should be lived in its purest manner, respecting elders, adherence to the thoughts of parents without any thought, never uttering unwanted words, keeping promises all the time ~ and that was the Greatest “Lord Sri Rama”

Sri Rama Navami Uthsavam is on…. Today, is the third day of the Uthsavam and at Thiruvallikkeni divyadesam Sri Ramar had purappadu on Garuda vahanam. Sri Ramanavami is on Friday, 19th April 2013.

with regards – Adiyen Srinivasa dhasan.

PS :  Today is 31st day of Panguni and 1st day of Chithirai is tomorrow; ~ still
today is celebrated as the start of “Vijaya Varusham”.
