Construction of Tank in Mayiladuthurai

Dear Friends,

With the blessings of the Almighty and Cauvery Matha, as laid out in our scriptures, we are planning to celebrate Cauvery Maha Pushkaram in a grand manner at Mayiladuthurai from Tuesday, September 12, 2017 to September 24th 2017. This will be done in a grand manner across the thula kattam of Cauvery banks at Myiladuthurai (a major cultural and traditional town of huge historical significance, about 250 kms south of Chennai) this year.

The Pushkaram of this year is considered as Maha Pushkaram as the particular configuration of stars, etc.,  happens to fall once in 144 years.  This festival, according to our scriptures, is observed to mark the welfare and benefit of every being in the whole Bharatiya society.  It is particularly auspicious to take a dip in the river Cauvery during the specified time period.  It is believed that a holy dip in the Pushkaram river will help to cleanse the inner selves, wash out the evils and open up a path of peaceful living. Pushkara snanams are also believed to have curative properties from chronic ill health. During the period of Pushkaram, Devathas including Brahaspathi, Lord Shiva and Lord Narayana are all eternally present in the theerthas to Bless the humanity

Our cultural belief is that all holy rivers including Ganga Mata perform holy dip in the Cauvery river mouth called Thulakattam situated in Mayiladuthurai on this occasion of Maha Pushkaram.

Pariharam for Specific Rasis : It is advisable to do pariharam/ shanthi for Kanya, Thulam and Vrichiga rasis in the first phase and Mesham, Mithunam and Meena rasis in the second phase.

We have approached Tamil Nadu Ministry and they have also promised us to help us out with this event. We have to organise various activities encompassing several aspects of traditional Bharatiya knowledge base such as Veda Parayanam, Homam, Maha Yengam, cultural activities such as music, traditional dances, spiritual discourses, Cauvery Arthi, Thirumurai (Tamil Vedas) Parayanam, Annadanam, poor feeding, pithru tharpanam, etc.

Support from Government : Tamil Nadu Govt. is kind enough especially our Chief Minister, Nagapattinam Minister and Nagapattinam Collector are fully in support of this function and propose to make all arrangements to celebrate the Cauvery Maha Pushkaram function in a grand maner.  For this purpose, the Tamil Nadu Govt. with the help of the public have come forward to construct a tank in the river at Mayiladuthurai Thulakattam to avoid water scarcity permanently in the Cauvery river in this area in the near future.

Bhoomi Pooja for Tank : With the blessings of both Periyava, all Adheenam’s, Jeers, and Madathiapathigal the boomi Pooja for the construction of the tank in Thulakattam, Mayiladuthurai is planned on 4th June 2017 between 7.30 am to 8.30 am. All are requested to attend this function and get the blessings of Cauvery Matha.

Thanks and Regards

Mahalakshmi Subramanian      .

Apart from Varuna Jabam, Berjayasanthi homam etc on 7th May for more rain, for speedy work for the renovation of Akilandeswari temple we performed Abhishekam to Sri Akilandeswari and Sri Jambukeswarar.
The pattar dressed like Ambal and performed pooja for Jambukeswarar, it is a Kankolla Kakshi – photos are given in the following link. Ambal blessed us by dropping flowers from Her heart. It was amazing to see. Sundarraman (Bombay), Narayana mama (Kumbakonam), Rajalakshmi (Bangalore) and Vekatesan family (Chennai) all were with us and witnessed Ambal blessings.
Veeboothi praharam pictures also is added in the link
It is said that this is the praharam where Siva Peruman came in Siddhar form and gave veeboothi to the workers while constructing the praharam. This Veebhoothi turned into gold according to their work. So Siva peruman Himself constructed this wall. In Mahaperiyava Daivathin kural 6th. book Mahaperiyava mentioned about this Veebhoothi praharam and also said about the advantage of doing parikrama on Pournami days. Till today lot of people are doing parikrama in pournami days. We are very much fortunate to undertake the renovation of Veebhoothi praharam.
Those who want to take part and to have more information and history on this please feel free to contact us.
