Sri Agasthiar The Second Vishnupathi of the Viya Year - August 17, 2006 - Lord Lakshmi Narasimha of Avaniyapuram

The second Vishnupathi auspicious time period of the Viya year occurs on late night August 16 and continues into the morning of August 17, 2006. Observe this occasion according to the Siddha worship procedures described in the August 2006 issue of Sri Agasthia Vijayam, the Ashram monthly magazine.

The Lord of Honor during this Vishnuapthi is Lord Lakshmi Narasimha of Avaniyapuram.

Lakshmi Narasimha Temple, Abaniyapuram - Vishnupathi August 2006

The nine hour period from 0130 hours to 1030 hours IST on August 17 is of great spiritual importance. As we have pointed out elsewhere in AUMzine (articles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8), spiritual aspirants can make great spiritual progress by following specific worship procedures revealed by the Siddhas for this particular time period. The Sathguru, Guru Mangala Gandharva Venkataraman, has been revealing these Siddha procedures for many years now. We hope that Vaishnavites and Narayana devotees everywhere will make it a point to observe this most important Vishnupathi worship procedure as revealed to us by the Siddhas.

The Vishnupathi time period occurs once in three months. Thus there are four Vishnupathi time periods in each varusham (year). Since each varusham repeats once in 60 years, each of these Vishnupathi periods occurs once only in 60 years. In other words, if you miss celebrating the First Vishnupathi of the Viya varusham (year), you'll have to wait 60 years for the next one! Hence seize the moment and celebrate each Vishnupathi in accordance with Siddha procedures.

The Vishnupathi auspicious time period marks that time in a different era during which Lord Narayana performed miracles for the sake of His devotees. Each of these auspicious Vishnupathi time periods should be observed by devotees using a specific set of Siddha worship procedures.

For August 17, 2ØØ6, these pooja procedures have been described in the August 2006 issue of Sri Agasthia Vijayam, the Ashram monthly magazine. Please refer to this issue for details and do the Vishnupathi pooja as described therein. As with all poojas, the Lord blesses the devotee with both spiritual and material wealth.

The August 2006 issue of the Ashram monthly magazine also describes the great spiritual events that happened during the Viya Avani maasa (i.e., second) Vishnupathi during various yugas. So make sure you read this issue of the magazine.
