Hare Srinivasa,

The auspicious HEMALABI – the year our great Acharyaru Sriman Madhwacharyaru choose for his avatara, has just begun and the excitement is all around. The first festival of the year Sri Rama Navami is on 05th April. Let us make use of this sacred day to kick start our sadhane in the new year. As you know we have 2 Grahana events in this year and the first one – Chandra Grahana is on Aug 7th (Shravana masa Pournami day). On account of this there is a change in Upakarma dates in Hemalambi samvatsara.

Please note the Upakarma dates given below:

Rig Veda (Nuthana and Nithya Upakarma)    – 28-Jul-17(Fri)
Yajur Veda (Nuthana and Nithya Upakarma) – 06-Sep-17(Wed)
