Jaya Jaya Shankara Hara Hara Shankara – Thanks to Maha Periyava Puranam for this timely post. Happy Margazhi to all. Ram Ram.
We should not give up this ancient practice of bathing in the early morning and singing the praise of God. Girls in a locality can join together and go round one or two streets everyday singing the Tiruppaavai or the Tiruvembaavai. They can at least cover about ten houses each day. This practice is intended to rouse the latent spiritual powers in each individual. By reviving this practice, we can derive the blessings of God, for our benefit and for the benefit of society as a whole. – Sri Maha Periyava
With Margazhi Maasam (Dhanur Maasam) dawning tomorrow morning, let us listen to what Periyava says about Margazhi and the Mahathuvam of this sacred month.
