Today is Aadi Amavasya (the new moon day in the month of Karkatakam)Members,
Today is an important day. Aadi Amavasya (in Tamil) is the new moon day in the month of Aadi (15th July - 15th August). The new moon day falling in between these days is a fitting day to remember and offer our prayers to our ancestors (Passed away Father, Mother, Grand Father, Grand Mother, Great Grand Father, Great Grand Mother etc) . Generally, we choose to perform such rituals near a water body like sea-shores, river banks, lakes and ponds.
1.What do you do on this special day?
2.Do you take leave from your office to perform the rituals?
2.Where do you go to perform the rituals?
3.Do you know the names of your ancestors like GF,GM,GGF,GGM (to tell the purohit who would ask for it)
