March 22nd We will be celebrating this year's Shobhana Krtuth Nama Samvatsara UGADI on March 22nd (Wednesday). This day is observed as a New Year by Hindus in many other parts of India. For example, it is called Gudi Padwa in several parts of India.


The day is observed by drawing colorful patterns on floor called Muggulu or Rangoli, mango leaf decorations on doors called toranalu or Torana, buying and giving gifts such as new clothes, giving charity to the poor, special bath followed by oil treatment, preparing and sharing a special food called pachadi, and visiting Hindu temples. The pachadi is a notable festive food that combines all flavors – sweet, sour, salty, bitter. In the Telugu and Kannada Hindu traditions, it is a symbolic reminder that one must expect all flavors of experiences in the coming new year and make the most of them. Ugadi means beginning of an era.


Ugadi Panchanga Shravanam is done on Ugadi. Astrology predictions and yearly horoscopes are told by Pundits on this day.


Program Details:
6.00 PM Maha Lakshmi Abhishekam followed by special Alankaram with new Peetham, Gold Tilak and New Saree (All donated by various sponsors)

The day is the ninth and last day of Chaitra Navaratri. It celebrates the arrival of Vishnu's 7th avatar, god Rama. It is marked by the faithfuls with puja (devotional worship) such as bhajan and kirtan, by fasting and reading passages about Rama's life. Special cities in the Ramayana legends about Rama's life observe major celebrations. These include Ayodhya (Uttar Pradesh), Rameshwaram (Tamil Nadu), Bhadrachalam (Telangana) and Sitamarhi (Bihar). Some locations organize Rath-yatras (chariot processions), while some celebrate it as the wedding anniversary festival (Kalyanotsavam) of Rama and Sita. In our Temple we will be performing Kalyanotsavam (Wedding Ceremony). Ram Navami is symbolically celebrated as Shirdhi Sai Baba’s birthday & Swamy Narayan Jayanthi.
