Celebrate Dhan Teras

DHAN TERAS DATE IN 2013 – Friday, 01st NOVEMBER 2013           

About the Festival – Dhan Triyodashi, Yamdeep Daan, Kuber Puja, Dhanwantri Puja

Dhanteras the festival of wealth and prosperity is celebrated two days before Diwali festival in India. Dhanteras is also known as Dhantrayodashi, and takes place two days before Diwali, in honour of Dhanavantri, the physician of the gods and an incarnation of Vishnu. Dhanteras marks the beginning of Diwali festival. Dhan means “wealth” and Teras denotes “trayodashi”. The festival is observed on the 13th lunar day of dark fortnight (Krishna Paksha) in the month of Kartik.

On this day, the main doors of houses and offices are decorated with flowers lights and rangolis. An extensive pooja is organized in all households where people worship Goddess Laxmi with their purchase of the day (utensil/Jewellery).

Legends Associated with Dhan Teras
Yamadeep Daan
There are two legends associated with this festival. The first is that there was a 16 year old son of King Hima whose horoscope predicted his early death by a snake-bite on the fourth day of his wedding. On that particular fourth day of his marriage, his young wife did not allow him to sleep. She laid all the ornaments and lots of gold and silver coins in a big heap at the entrance of her husband’s boudoir and lighted innumerable lamps all over the place. And she went on telling stories and singing songs. When Yam, the god of death arrived there in the guise of a serpent his eyes got blinded by that dazzle of those brilliant lights and he could not enter the prince’s chamber. So he climbed on top of the heap of the ornaments and coins and sat there whole night listening to the melodious songs. In the morning he quietly went away. Thus the young wife saved her husband from the clutches of death. Since then this day of Dhanteras came to be known as the day of “YAMADEEPDAAN” and lamps are kept burning throughout the night in reverential adoration to Yam, the god of death.

Legend of Samudramanthan or Sea Churning
Another legend of Samudramanthan shows that at the time of sea churning or samudramanthan, Lord Dhanwantri appeared in sea with an urn, hence, there is a tradition of buying utensils of this day. It is believed buying utensils or silver increases their count by 13 times. Also, buying seeds of dried coriander and keeping them in house increases wealth. On the day of Diwali, these seeds are sown in garden or farms. These seeds are the symbol of growth and wealth increment in a person’s life.

What to purchase on Dhanteras
In the past few years, the tradition of purchasing utensils and jewellery has become popular on this day. The real significance of Dhan Teras lies in worshipping Lord Dhanvantri so that good health is bestowed on the worshipper and ultimately “Health is Wealth.” The best way to celebrate Dhan Teras apart from worshipping Maa Lakshmi, Kuber Ji, Lord Yama and Lord Dhanvantri is to give any gift to your family doctor or physician. In addition you can purchase small utensil/s of silver/steel/copper as per your need and budget. Please remember that do not purchase a utensil with holes like tea filter.   You can purchase a copper/silver bowl and after puja you can use it for drinking water. If it is a copper utensil you can dip five mukhi rudraksha in it in night and early morning have this water and it will solve your diabetes and blood pressure problem. Alternatively you can bring home the silver idols of Lakshmi and Ganesha which increases wealth, success and growth at house, offices and business organisation.

Dhanteras Pujan
The worship  on Dhanteras should be done in Subh Muhurat. First of all 13 lamps should be lighted and Lord Kuber in the Locker should be worshipped. Lord Kuber is worshipped and offered flowers and it is said that “I worship you Lord Kuber who sits on the best plane similar to Garudamani, holding Gadha in both the hands and wearing crown on head, dear friend of lord Shiva”. After this worship with incense sticks, lamps, Navedha (sweets) and chant the following mantra

‘यक्षाय कुबेराय वैश्रवणाय धन-धान्य अधिपतये
धन-धान्य समृद्धि मे देहि दापय स्वाहा ।’

Auspicious Muhurat for Puja in the Evening
The time of Pradosh Kal,fixed Lagna from 17:32 to 20:10 (05:32 p.m. to 08:10 p.m.) will be the most auspicious for the Pujan of Dhanteras. Auspicious muhurat for shopping on Dhan Teras is before 9:33 p.m. on Ist November 2013
Method of Deep Daan
In the evening have mitti ka Deepak and fill it with Til oil. Have new cotton in it and lit it. Lit an incense stick also and recite following mantra looking at South Direction:         
‘मृत्युना दण्डपाशाभ्यां कालेन श्यामया सह ।त्रयोदश्यां दीपदानात्‌ सूर्यजः प्रीयतां मम ॥’

Now do deep daan and release diyas into water or leave them at pipal tree.

Now, after seating yourself on the Kushasan (a small mattress made by the weed called Kusha), you should invoke the Lord and complete the worship as mentioned earlier. After this, you can perform the Mahabhishek (Grand Anointing Ceremony) by Panchamrita etc., and sing the ‘Aarti’ of the Lord with a lighted lamp waving in your hand before the Lord’s idol. Then the oblation of Durba, flowers etc. should be offered to the Lord. After this religiously move around the Lord seven times in anti-clockwise direction and lie with hand and feet fully stretched on the ground with face facing the ground to salute the Lord. This sort of special salutation is called Sashtang Namaskar’. Then 21 Laddoos should be offered as the Lord’s symbolic food or the ‘Prasadam’ which should be distributed to as many devotees as possible. It is said in scriptures that ‘Prasadam’ should be distributed to the greatest number of persons possible with each getting as little of the share as to have it totally absorbed or digested by the eater’s body and there should not be any refuse left out of it after digestion.
Having made the offering, the following ‘Mantra’ (incantation) should be recited:Ganadhipa namasteastu Umaputraghanashana
Ekdantabhaktreti tatha mooshak vahana
Vinayakesha putreti sarva siddhi pradayaka
Kumar gurve tubhyam poojaneeyah prayatnatah

[I bow to the head of Ganas, the Destroyer of all sin, the son of Uma (parvati), who has One Tusk and Elephant-Face and the mouse as His vehicle. Supreme Leader, who grants the boon of son and every desire, whose elder brother is Kumar (Kartikeya)- this way I endeavor to worship you)

Happy Janmashtami 2013

Date of Krishna Janmasthami in 2013 – 28th August 2013

About the Festival

Krishna Janmashtami is the celebration of the birth of Lord Shri Krishna, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who is believed to have been born about five thousand years ago in Mathura in ‘Dwapar Yuga’. Krishna Janmashtami is also known as Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Krishnashtami, Saatam Aatham, Gokulashtami and sometimes simply as Janmashtami.

It is essentially a Hindu festival. The festival is generally observed on Ashtami tithi, the eighth day of the dark half or Krishna Paksha of the month of Bhadrapada in the Hindu calendar, when the Rohini Nakshatra is ascendant. This is usually in the months of August and September in the Gregorian calendar. The festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm and vigor by Hindus all over India and abroad. People observe fast the whole day, sing hymns and conduct prayers at midnight to rejoice the birth of Lord. Raslila, dramatic enactments of the life of Krishna, are a special feature that is showcased in every part of the country, as it re-creates the flirtatious aspects of Krishna’s youthful days. Another interesting aspect of Krishna Janmashtami is the practice of Dahi-Handi. This game portrays the playful and mischievous side of Krishna, where teams of young men form human pyramids to reach a high-hanging pot of butter and break it.

Brief Significance and History of Festival

According to the Puranas Krishna took birth on the 8th lunar day (Ashtami) of the waning moon of the month of Smvana at midnight, upon the moon’s entrance into Rohini asterism. This day is marked as Janmashtami. Krishna is one of the most worshipped Gods in India and belongs to the Hindu Trinity. He is believed to be one of the eight incarnations of Lord Vishnu. The story of birth of Krishna is an intriguing one. The story goes like this: One day Mother Earth was appalled by the number of sins that were being committed on her surface. She went to Brahma that God of the Gods and appealed to him for help. Brahma, after listening to her, appealed to Lord Vishnu who said that He would take birth on earth and His avatar will destroy every kind of sin that was being committed on earth then. During that time, Mathura was in miserable state as Kansa, brother of Devki, had put his father, King Ugrasen in prison and declared himself the new king. To put an end to his evil rule, Lord Vishnu decided to take birth in the human form. As such, at the wedding ceremony of Devki and Vasudev, there was a divine prophecy which proclaimed that Vasudeva’s eighth son would kill Kansa. To protect himself, Kansa rushed to kill his sister but gave up the idea of killing after being assured by Vasudev that he will hand over all his children to Kansa. Kansa put his brother-in-law and sister in prison. Kansa killed all the six infants as soon as they were born. The seventh child (Balram) was saved due to divine intervention, when he was transferred from Devki’s womb to that of Rohini’s (other wife of Vasudev).

As Devki conceived the eighth child, everything around was imbued with benevolence and majestic beauty. Lord Krishna was born in the divine form with lotus like eyes, his palms bearing the signs of a lotus, while his sole has a swastika sign. He was adorned with jewels and was wearing a crown. Just as he was born at midnight, a chain of events astonished Vasudev, when he saw the gates of the cell flow open and all the guards fast asleep. He immediately thought of Nand, his close friend in Gokul and decided to hand over his child to him in order to save him from the clutch of Kansa. Crossing the River Yamuna, Vasudev reached Nand’s residence and exchanged his son with Nand’s daughter. Upon reaching the prison, the door got locked behind him and he was chained again as if nothing happened in between. The guards also woke up and after hearing the cry of the baby, informed Kansa about the birth of the eighth child. Just as Kansa rushed to kill the baby, it slipped out of his hand and flew towards the sky, proclaiming that the annihilator of Kansa was born and was safe.
How to Celebrate Janmasthami
I think the festival is an opportunity for us to thank Him for all that He has given to us. As we enjoy attention and fun on our birthday, so does Lord also enjoys our attention on His appearance day. Worship Him in a way that you can relate yourself with the lord and in this love and devotion you will get immense happiness and satisfaction.

1. First of all you can decorate your home for Lord Krishna. Clean your home thoroughly and invite Lord to come to your house. It would be fun, particularly for children. Encourage them in helping to make garlands, hanging balloons and festoons of leaves, and making the house beautiful for Krishna’s appearance.
2. Listen to Lord Krishna Bhajans and recite Mahamantra of Lord.
3. If you have Radha-Krishna deities, get extra special new outfits for them. Exercise your creativity and pay special attention to decorating their altar. Hold Abhisheka bathing ceremony for your deities. Simply buy different liquids like yogurt, honey, ghee and fruit juices and bathe the deity with them while singing devotional songs.
4. You must cook one special dish for the Lord which should be offered to Lord and then taken as Prasad by you. Imagine that Krishna is actually right near you in your house and you are offering this dish to Him.
5. Meditate as long as possible on this day and you can recite Lord Mahamantra also. Visit any Lord Krishna temple if possible and immerse yourself in the presence of Lord there.
6. You can bring a cake for the lord. It should be an eggless cake. Cut the cake in the midnight at 12 o Clock and have midnight Aarti (worship ceremony) with a kirtan. This is the exact time that Krishna appeared on this planet, so it is most auspicious and spiritually inspiring

7. Krishna has an immense love for cows. On the birthday of Lord Krishna, you must feed cows. You can offer anything like bread, green grass, chapati or any thing which you think would be liked by the cows. This would definitely give you mental peace, satisfaction and happiness and would also improve your planet Venus.

8. I am reproducing Krishna Mahamantra below. Chant this mantra and feel the divine presence. Enjoy each and every bit of His visit. He is here only, today and always. Feel Him, Love Him and Worship Him.

Happy Somvati Amavasya – How to do Somvati Amavasya Vrat


Somvati Amavasi, or Somavati Amavasya, is no moon day that falls on a Monday (Somvar) in traditional Hindu calendar. In 2013, Somvati Amavasya date is July 8.

It is considered a highly auspicious day and millions of people take a holy dip in sacred Rivers like Ganga and Yamuna on the day. Married men and women also perform different pujas and rituals and also undertake Somavara Amavasya Vrat. Though Amavasya occurs every month, Hindus believe it to be most auspicious when it occurs on a Monday. Married women on this day should observe fast on this day for the long life of her husband. Women who want a good match for them should also keep this fast. They should worship Lord Shiva and offer milk and milk mixed water to Shiv Linga. This day is also very auspicious for performing Pitra Tarpan (offering to the ancestors) as it provides peace to their souls. People suffering from Pitra Dosha should also observe this fast as it frees them from this dosha. It is believed that observing this helps us get rid of all the sorrows and problems. People who are suffering problems in their life as well as profession should observe this fast. If they cannot fast at least they should do the things advised below for getting happiness in their life.

The significance of Somvati Amavasya was narrated to Yudhisthira by Bhishma Pitamaha in the epic Mahabharata. It is believed that we can bring peace to our ancestor’s soul by taking a Holy Dip on this day in the sacred River Ganga. Also, the Holy Dip wears away all our sorrows and helps us progress and prosper. The Peepal tree is considered as a sacred tree as per the Indian traditions and on the auspicious day of Somvati Amavasya women tie a sacred thread around its trunk for 108 times. Parikrama around the tree is performed for 108 times and it is offered with milk, sandal paste, flowers and vermillion. Devotees sit under the Peepal tree and chant Mantras to please the Almighty.

Legend associated with Somvati Amavasya

Once upon a time there lived a money lender who had seven sons and one daughter. He married all his sons but could not find a suitable match for his daughter. A monk visited their house regularly and blessed the money lender’s daughters-in-law but never blessed the daughter. The daughter told her mother about this and she confronted the monk with this question. The monk did reply and left quietly. This really worried the mother and she called a Pandit.

The Pandit told her that her daughter was destined to become a widow. The girl’s mother asked the Pandit for a solution to the problem. He told them that there was a washerwoman who lived on the island of Singhal. If that woman agrees to apply vermilion (Sindoor) on the forehead of the girl, her fate will change. The Pandit also told them that observing fast of Somvati Amavasya will also be instrumental in reversing her fate.

The mother sent her daughter and her youngest son to that island. On their way to the island they came across sea shore and wondered how to cross it. Sitting under a tree they saw a vulture’s nest. A male and female vulture lived there with their babies. One day when both vultures had gone out of their nest to fetch some food, a snake entered their nest and attacked the babies. All this was being witnessed by the girl who was sitting there. She immediately jumped to help the vulture babies and saved them from the attack.

When the vultures returned they were really pleased to know what had just happened. As a token of their gratitude they helped the girl to reach the washer woman’s house. After reaching her destination she started living with the washer woman. After a few months the woman was really pleased with the girl and applied vermilion (Sindoor) on her forehead. While returning back to her house she also observed Somvati Amavasya. This reversed her fate and then she lived a happy married life with her husband.

Special Importance of Somvati Amavasya for Pitra Dosha

Somvati Amavasya is a special day for getting rid of Pitra dosha in your horoscope. I would advise you to consult a good astrologer for knowing specific remedies pertaining to their horoscope. Until then you can do the following remedy for solution of Pitra Dosha.

Crows and the ‘Peepal tree’ are the symbols of forefather. So, you must offer water to the “Peepal tree” on this day. You can offer sweet water, sweets (white) or kheer and Janeu to the Peepal tree on this day and recite the Mantra `OM NAMOH BHAGWATE VASUDEWAY’. Circumambulate the Peepal tree 108 times and then apologize to God for your known and unknown sins.Giving bread to the crows also gives a lot of benefit on this day.

According to the “Shastra” our forefathers come to our house on “Amavasya”, so every person must donate according to his or her capability. Keeping food under the “Babool tree” makes our Forefathers happy.

On every Amavasya we must give five fruits to the cow. No matter what religion you are following, after preparing food you must offer the first bite to a cow in the name of our forefather, so that the family could be blessed by them.

What to do on Somvati Amavasya/Spiritual Significance of this day

Apart from above remedies for Pitra Dosha you can also do the following on Somvati Amavasya:

  1. You can donate food to poor kids.
  2. Fast on this day and worship Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu
  3. Doing Maun (remaining silent) is considered to be very fruitful on this day.
  4. Devotees observing Somvati Vrat must revolve around 108 times around Peepal tree in the morning.
  5. You should chant Lord Shani Mantra “Om Nilaanjana Samaabhasam, Ravi Putram Yamagrajam. Chaya Martanda Samhubhutam, Tama Namami Shanescharam.”
  6. Worship of both Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu on this day would eliminate all your sufferings.
  7. Taking bath in the holy rivers (Like Ganga and Triveni) on Somvati Amavasya is considered to bring prosperity, make you free from diseases, grief and sorrow and help the ancestors to attain salvation.
  8. You can also do parikrama (circumbalate) Basil tree (Tulsi tree) 108 times. It results in elimination of poverty.
  9. You can offer 11 (Eleven) Abhimantrit Gomti Chakra on Shiv Linga on this day to grab favorable opportunities in profession. For getting Abhimantrit and Energised Gomti Chakra, you can contact Lal Kitab Astro Centre (LKAC).

I wish all of you a very happy Somvati Amavasya 2013

Good Remedy for Saving Children from Evil Eye

Many a times we have seen that children, especially small children get affected due to evil eye of people surrounding them. It is also known as Nazar Dosha which affect health and development of such children.
I am giving here a good remedy for saving your children from such Nazar Dosha or bad eye of others.

In the evening take some milk in a bowl or preferably in a mud container. Move it anticlockwise 21 times from the child who you think is affected by evil eye. Now serve this milk to any street dog or any other dog you may find near your house. It will remove evil eye and your child would feel good.

Apart from the above remedy, in the night around 9-10 p.m. you can keep a mud bowl or container below the bed of your child. keep it over night and in the morning serve this milk to a dog. If you can find a black color dog it would be better.

You should do this remedy on any Saturday, Tuesday or on Amavasya to get more favorable results.

Finally I would advise that if you are facing problem of evil eye or any other similar problem, you should consult a good astrologer so that remedy could be suggested based on your child horoscope and transit conditions. I have seen many people who tend to look for easy shortcuts and do not want to spend money on getting a good consultation for them or their children. This proves to be disadvantageous for them in future.
