Thursday Oct 23, 2014 Temple will be closed after 12 pm due to SURYA GRAHAN (Solar Eclipse).

Solar Eclipse happens when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. The Moon casts a huge shadow over the Earth as it blocks out the sunlight. For those at the edge of the shadow (the penumbra) the eclipse is partial and observers standing in the centre of the shadow (the umbra) see a spectacular Full solar eclipse.

The grahana kaalam is considered auspicious for manthra paaraayanam. Mantras chanted during this time gets energized (chanting once equals chanting many times). Take a head bath and start reciting the mantra when the eclipse starts and continue it until the eclipse ends. After the eclipse is over, take a head bath again. It is advisable to fast during the

Grahana Kaalam“.

Deepaavali is a Sanskrit term derived as ‘Deepaanaam aavalihi Deepaavalihi’, which means an array of lights.  Deepaavali falls on the last day of the month of Aashvayuja, as per the lunar Calendar. The previous day is called Naraka Chathurdasi.  Naraka asura was killed by Lord Krishna on the Chathurdasi day. The day after the chaturdasi is the amaavaasya day which is celebrated with lights. On this day everyone takes a head bath with oil before sunrise.
