ವಟಸಾವಿತ್ರೀ ಹುಣ್ಣಿಮೆ VataSavithri Hunnime- June 26th 2010

June 26 2010th is ವಟಸಾವಿತ್ರೀ ಹುಣ್ಣಿಮೆ VataSavithri Hunnime or Purnima.  The Madhwa Panchanga has the following sloka and a brief description of what needs to be done on this day.

To quote ” On this day, married woman should perform Pooja to Savithri for a long and happy married life and say the following prayer. The prayer below is in English and Kannada. The English version can be copied and pasted into Baraha to translate into any other regional Indian Language it supports.

The book I have also mentions that married ladies have to perform pooja for vatasavitri and read the story(not sure which story though). For those who don’t have the ritual of performing this pooje, those people can give Haldi ಅರಿಷಿಣ, Kumkum ಕುಂಕುಮ , Betel Leaves, Nuts (ಎಲೆ ಅಡಿಕೆ), Mango ಮಾವಿನ ಹಣ್ಣು to married ladies. Those who perform this ritual will be happily married.

P.S: not sure what the right word is for ಸುಮಂಗಲ್ಯಭಿವೃಧಿ.
