Maagha Snaana Arambha – 05Jan15

Hare Srinivasa,

The auspicious MAAGHA SNAANA starts on 5-Jan-15 Pushya Sukhla Pournami day. It is a very auspicious month and early morning snaana is very important through this sacred month. Early morning snaana before sunrise in this month can cleanse us of grave sins and enhance our merits. It is a golden opportunity not to be missed.

Maagha Snaana Mantra:-

Maagha mase ratanthyaapaha kinchithapudithe ravou |

brahmagnam vaa suraapam vaa kam pathantham puneemahe ||

Let us all get together and perform this holy maagha snaana during arunodaya kala with the sole intention of pleasing the supreme lord Narayana.
