Mangala Gowri Vrata – ಮಂಗಳ ಗೌರಿ ವ್ರತ Details

Many of you constantly asked for the Mangala Gowri Vrata – ಮಂಗಳ ಗೌರಿ ವ್ರತ pooja details. Having done this pooja myself almost 18 years back, I really do not remember, nor with all the travel we did across the world have the books with me.

However, seeing all your requests I decided to search on the internet the proper way for you all to do this Vrata – ವ್ರತ.

I found out that www.Sumadhwa.Seva has detailed information on how to perform this Vrata. And before you ask, it is in Kannada and English. So, should help anyone performing this Vrata. There is PDF for both languages. so print it out, perform the vrata and get blessings from Mangala Gowri – ಮಂಗಳ ಗೌರಿ.

Attached below the link for the same.

Akshaya Tritiya Mantralaya

Updated Post: Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ ತೃತಿಯಾ – May 1st -2nd 2014

In the USA Akshaya Thritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is celebrated on May 1st 2014 and on May 2nd 2014 in India. Please check with your local calendar to find out about the same.

Akshaya Tritiya ಅಕ್ಷಯ  ತೃತಿಯಾ is the most important day in the hindu calendar.  Akshaya means growth and tritiya is the third day of the month in Vaishaka Masa. They say that in order to perform any major function like marriage, gruhapravesha you don’t even have to check your horoscope for finding a good Muhurtham. Any ritual or religious function performed on this day leads to growth.

The Uttaradi matta panchanga also mentions it is very important to apply gandha ಗಂಧ to the Lord. So, if you have access to the same, please do that as well.

On this day, many ladies give thambula including blouse piece, and other items. Any thing you give or donate they say becomes akshaya. Meaning infinite or one that never diminishes.

So, if you have decided to do anything new this year, this is the right day to get started.
