Puratasi Masam Special


Purattasi Month is the sixth month in a traditional Tamil calendar. It is a highly auspicious month and is dedicated to Lord Venkateswara (Lord Vishnu). The Navaratri festival is also held in this month. Puratassi Month 2011 is from September 18 to October 17. Special pujas and prayers are observed on Saturdays in Puratassi month to please Shani Bhagavan.
Navratri festival begins on September 28.
Ekadasi dates in Puratassi Masam are on September 24 and October 7.
Shiva Pradosham dates are on September 25 and October 9.
Pillayar Sankatahara Chaturthi is on October 15 (Ganesh Sankashti Chaturthi)
Purattasi Ammavasai is on September 27.
Muruga Sashti Fasting is on October 2.
Puratassi Pournami is on September 11 and 12.
Special prayers are offered at the Srirangam Ranganathaswamy Temple in Purattasi Month.
Another legend suggests that Lord Saneswara (Shani) loses his powers in Puratasi month and so it is easy to escape his malefic influences.
Devotees of Lord Venkateswara take only a meal on Puratasi Saturdays. Some devotees only eat vegetarian food during the month
