The third Vishnupathi auspicious time period of the Viya year occurs on late night November 15 and continues into the morning of November 16, 2006. Observe this occasion according to the Siddha worship procedures described in the September, October and November 2006 issues of Sri Agasthia Vijayam, the Ashram monthly magazine.
The temple of honor during this Vishnupathi is the Sundara Mahalakshmi temple in Arasar Koil. The covers of the September 2006 issue of issues of Sri Agasthia Vijayam, the Ashram monthly magazine, give you a glimpse of this temple and the divinities therein. These covers are reproduced below.
Mother Sundara Mahalakshmi and Lord Kamala Varadaraja are the divinities of honor during this Vishnuapthi.
Our Ashram book on Mother Sri Sundara Maha Lakshmi and Kamala Varadaraja Mahima contains a great amount of detail on the Siddha secrets concerning this temple and the deities here. You can get this book at our Ashram store.
The Arasar Koil Temple of Mother Sundara MahaLakshmi and Her Divine Consort Lord Kamala Varadaraja Perumal was yet another dilapidated temple till Sathguru Venkataraman revealed his Siddha secrets about this temple in his monthly magazine and Tamil blog in the 2005-2006 timeframe.
It is these writings that introduced this ancient temple to the modern world. Ever since, there has been quite a bit of interest in this important temple.
At the insistence of the local townspeople and many others, Sathguru Venkataraman published his original Siddha revelations on Mother Sundara MahaLakshmi and the Arasar Koil Temple in a book in 2006.

The nine hour period from 0130 hours to 1030 hours IST on November 16, 2006 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 September, October and November
2006 issues 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 September, October and November 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 these issues of the magazine.
