Hare Srinivasa, 

We are in the auspicious Chaturmasa parva kala and about to complete the Dhadhivratha. The Third month in the Chaturmasa is known as the Ksheera Vratha. This Vratha needs to be observed from Bhadrapada Shukla Ekadashi to Ashwayuja (Ashvija) Shukla Dashami.

Surya Shashti – 07Sep16

Hare Srinivasa,

The 6th day in the lunar month of Bhadrapada Masa (Shasti thithi) is known as Surya Shashti. This month it is observed on 07-Sep-16(Wednesday). It is highly meritorious to take bath early in the morning on this day, worship the Sun God and take Panchagavya (a mix of five items related to the sacred Cow). It is also advised to worship Lord Subramanya on this Shashti. This is supposed to give merits equivalent to Ashwamedha.


In Shashtras, it has been mentioned that that if a devotee performs the daily rituals to Sun God, the miseries of life vanishes and he/she attains good health, healthy mind and salvation. After Snaana and Surya Puja, Pancha Gavya praashana should be done to qualify for the Phala or the Punya of executing Ashwamedha Yagna. On this very day of Surya Shashti, darshan of Kumara Swami would bestow relief for Brahma Hatya too.

DHARMA SINDHU – 64 SAYS:

SUKLAE BHAATHRAPATHEY SASHTIYAM SNAANAM BHASKARA POOJANAM |

PRAASANAM PANCHA KAVYASYA ASWAMEDHA PHALAADHIKAM. ||

Mantra for Sun God worship:-

Japa Kusuma Samkaasham Kaashya-peyam Mahaa-dyutim |

Tamorim Sarva-papaghnam Pranatosmin Divakaram ||

Sun (Soorya-Ravi) I pray to the Sun, the day-maker, destroyer of all sins, the enemy of darkness, of great brilliance, the descendent of Kaashyapa, the one who shines like the japaa flower.
