Kaaradayaan Nonbu / Saavitri Pooja

Kaaradayaan Nonmbu is a fasting observed by the Married ladies and unmarried girls. A married lady pray for the well being of her husband and an unmarried girl pray to get a good husband.

This auscpicious day falls on a time when the Tamizh month 'maasi 'ends and the new month 'Panguni' starts.

Women observe fasting, pray to the goddess by lighting a lamp, chanting slokas.

The story behind this fast is given here

On this day, after having headbath, light the lamp and pray to the god chanting slokas.

Sweet and Salt adais are prepared and offered to god along with butter on plaintain leaf / Banyan Leaf, tamboolam (beetel leaves, beetelnut, whole turmeric, the sacred yellow thread, flowers).

After the prayers, the yellow thread is tied to the goddess and also in the neck of the lady who offers the prayers. As per traditional practice the wife seeks the blessings (after god) her husband and then the elders of the family on this day.

Then the fast is broken by eating the prashad (Adais) along with butter. [Adai (sweet as well as salt) Recipes]

Those who could not keep the vrath on time for some reasons may observe it on auspicious time of some other day in the month and seeks the blessings of the goddess.

May the Saavitri maa and the goddess Kamakshi bless you all.

Jai mata di
