Makara Sankranti - 2015 - 15.01.2015
« on: January 15, 2015, 07:45:24 AM »
Today is the Makara Sankaranti, the first day of Uttaraaynam.  After Margazhi, where there is chanting of Tiruvembavai
and Tiruppaavai, today the chanting ends and there will be special pujas for Ramaneswara Mahalingam for this
beginning of Makara month.  The Sun comes to Makara in the zodiac and then moves northward in the sky today.
Uttaram means north.

I wish all the readers of the Forum a happy Makara Sankranti and in Tamizh we call it Pongal.

Arunachala Siva.
