Aadi Month Calender 2013 Important Festivals of Aadi
Tamil month Aadi or Aadi Masam begins on July 17, 2013. This is the fourth month in Tamil Calendar and many of them believe that this is an inauspicious month. This is because they believe that the night time of Gods Dakshinayana Punyakalam begins in this month of Aadi. Though the above myth is believed some consider this as an important month because of the special Tamil rituals and festivals.
The tamil month Aadi is dedicated to the worship of the Goddess and Varalakshmi Pooja is celebrated in this month. The Aadi Amavasi is dedicated to worship the dead ancestors. They believe that poojas performed on this day will go to the ancestors and all the generations will be blessed by them.
Aadi Krithigai, Aadi 18 Peerukku and Aadi Pooram are other important festivals. All the Tuesdays and Fridays in the month are considered as auspicious and dedicated to Mother Goddess. On these days the young unmarried women and those who suffer from Naga dosham or Kalasarpa dosham go to the temples which have snake puthus and offer the snake egg and milk. They worship the snake as God. If you are interested find Tamilnadu festival recipes here.
