Title: Punar Vasu vaNNam - 9.10.2014
Post by: Subramanian.R on December 09, 2014, 08:36:22 AM
Today is the punarvasu star day, the birth star of Sri Bhagavan, in the Tamizh month of Kartikai. Sri Bhagavan was born
on the punarvasu star day in the month of Margazhi, Dhanus.  The Asramam celebrates every punarvasu day of Tamizh
month with special abhishekam, alankaram and pujas and arti.  The Lingam is adorned with a golden casket and the celebrations
start from 9.45 to 10.30 a.m.  Special feast is served to the devotees and inmates on this day.

Punarvasu is also the star of Sri Rama.  There are many similarities between Sri Rama and Sri Bhagavan.

To remember this auspicious day, I give below a verse from Tiruch Chazhal (Holy Criticizing) from Sri Ramana Sannidhi Murai:

மற்றுவமை இல்லாத மாதவத்தான் வேங்கடவன்
அற்றவரை ஆதரிக்கும் மந்தநிறை காணேடி
அற்றவரை ஆதரிக்கும் மந்தணிறை ஆயிடில் என்
குற்றுயிரா என் நெஞ்சைக் கொன்றான் காண் சாழலோ. (Verse 1541)

The English translation of Prof. K. Swaminathan is as under:

Unique, unequalled, mighty Master,
Venkata, they say, sustains
The poor and helpless. So they  say.
But look, my heart he has pierced
And left me half dead, What is the game?

Arunachala Siva.
