punarvasu Star Day - 08.03. 2017:
« on: March 08, 2017, 12:47:54 PM »
Today is the Punarvasu star day, the star on which Bhagavan Ramana was born in the Month of Margazhi.  But today is the Punarvasu day of Masi month.

Every punarvasu day of the month, there will be special pujas for Sri Ramaneswara
Mahalingam with special abhishekam, alankaram and arti.  Today such one is done in
Sri Ramanasramam.

I give below the verse of Muruganar to be remembered for this day:

To remember this auspicious day, I give below the verse from Tiruch Chazhal of Muruganar's 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, unequaled, 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.

Dear Subramanian,

Yes the day was celebrated with alankaram and puja.  Followed by the rendering of Punarvasu Vannam song.  Then followed by prasadam and lunch.
