Pongal Kolangal


Thai Pongal is a day of thanksgiving or harvest festival celebrated in South India at the end harvest season. Pongal festival marks the beginning of the northward journey of the Sun from its southernmost-limit, a movement traditionally referred to as 'UTTARAYANA'.

Also, there are beliefs that the Thai Pongal is an occasion for family re-unions and get-together. Old enmities, personal animosities and rivalries are insisted to be removed from one's mind. In other words, love and peace are the central theme of Thai Pongal.

Here are the padi kolams which can be drawn on Pongal day.

Koodavaravalli festival Kolam

Here is the kolam dedicated to Lord Krishna on the day of Koodaravalli drawn in the Pooja room of our house.

         Navarathri means nine nights. Darkness is associated with night. What is this darkness? It is the   darkness of ignorance.   The purpose of the Navarathri celebration is to enable man to get rid of  nine types of darkness which have taken hold of him. When a reference is made to Goddess Devi, it  signifies the unified form of three Goddesses Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswathi. The three together represent Shakthi.
         I  have posted nine  kolams  which can be compared to  nine types of devotion (Nava Vidha Bhakthi) and by drawing these kolams infront of bomma kolu can be considered as rendering the Nava-Vidha Bhakthi. I would like to surrender Nava Vidha Bhakthi in the form of these kolams to  Bhagwan  Sri Sathya Sai  Baba(Sai  Matha) for NAVARATHRI.

Each kolam  is  considered   as each  type  of  Devotion.

Kubera  Yantra:

      Why  Kubera  Yantra? Here is the answer :

           Kubera Yanthra is  a positive  energy  device which  is  engraved  with  luck lines  for  each one of us.  Lord  Kubera,  the  God  of  riches  and  material wealth, showers  his  blessings  on  us  through  this  Yantra. Thursdays  and  Friday are  very  auspicious  for Lord Kubera. 

          The specially of this Yantra is the number 72 (7+2=9) should come in all the sides if we add the numbers from each and every side (vertically, horizontally and also diagonally). The Number '9' is very auspicious for Lord Kubera.

          Here  is  the Kubera Pooja Kolam  which  can  be  drawn  on  Thursdays in  our Pooja room.
