Parvathi Parameswara Thirukalyanam
The very special Parvathi Parameswara Thirukalyanam

abishekam and procession of Lord Vishnu, followed by the
grand opening of the Swarga Vasal (heaven doors) through
which the devotees entered to take dharshan of the Lord.
Thank you to Mr. Ravi and his daughter Mrs. Rethika

This month’s special event: Makara Sankaranthi
Makara Sankaranthi, also known as Thai Pongal, is an
auspicious Hindu festival celebrating the Sun God and
agricultural harvest.
This festival is celebrated by praying to God, who has
created the elements of nature on this earth to enable a
good harvest, after several months of hard work by the
farmers. Therefore, the farmers worship the Sun God
and the animals on this day, for giving them a good
harvest.
Furthermore, on the day of Makara Sankaranthi, the
Sun commences its 183 day cycle, of rising in the east
and via traveling in the north direction to set in the west,
called Utharayanam. (See diagram opposite).
Utharayanam is filled with many auspicious and holy
days, during which many celebrations take place.
The auspicious Makara Sankaranthi Pooja will be
performed at Sri Sai Siva Vishnu Temple on 13/01/13.
All are welcome!
