Aadi Krithigai 2021 Date
On Monday, August 2, 2021, Aadi Karthigai will take place. The event will take place in 27 days. Two more prominent days held during Aadi month are Aadi Pooram on August 11th, Wednesday, and Aadi Perukku on August 3rd, Tuesday. Aadi amavasya is observed on August 08, Sunday. Every month, the Karthigai or Karthikai nakshatra appears, and these days are commemorated by special pujas and rites at all Lord Murugan temples. The Karthigai nakshatram of the Aadi month, on the other hand, attracts special attention and is regarded as exceedingly fortunate because the Sun begins its southward trip on Karka Sankranti, or July 16. This marks the end of uttarayana period as well as the beginning of dakshinayana punyakalam.
Aadi Krithigai 2021 – Significance
The Skanda Purana elaborates on the circumstances surrounding Lord Muruga’s birth, claiming that Lord Shiva formed Muruga in the shape of six flames from his Third Eye.
At Saravana poikai, six celestial nymphs or maidens known as ‘Karthigai Pengal’ raised these flames in the form of newborns.
Goddess Parvathi merged Lord Murugan into one of these six children. Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvathi awarded the Karthigai Pengal with immortality as a reward for their selfless service.
Honoring them is also equivalent to worshipping Lord Murugan himself.
By honouring the Karthikai star, one is also honouring Lord Karthikaya. On the day of Aadi Karthigai, all Lord Murugan temples hold special poojas and abhishekams. Palani, Thiruttani, Swamimalai, Thiruparangundram, Tiruchendur, and Palamuthircholai hold elaborate rituals and unique poojas.
Lord Murugan is said to reside in these six temples, which are known as Aaru padai veedu.
During Aadi Karthikai, thousands of devotees flock to these temples.
Pilgrims flock to the Thiruthani Sri Subramanya Swamy shrine to give Lord Murugan Kavadi.
