Significance of Pushya-Arka Yoga – April 26th 2015


The common interpretation of Pushyaarka Yoga is the combination of Pushya Nakshatra and Sunday.This common interpretation is when moon entering Pushya nakshatra on Sunday is PushyArka yoga .

Raghavendra Mutta says “On this Holy day one should Recite or Chant Guru Stotra ( Raghavendra Stotra)s, Singing songs will bring happiness and prosperity in your life.”

The significance of this day is also mentioned in Rayara Stotra – 27th Stanza.

      Morning after taking shower. And in the evening after lighting lamp. And keep reciting his name all day.

  8. Meera as you said, I went to Ragavendra Mutt at Kumbakonam to-day evening, and I got the blessings from Rayuru, I asked the people who performs pooja regularly there, about the significance of Pushya, they said they didn’t aware of this, this might be performed at Mantralayam. As for me, I did Ashothra Aruchani, and chanting about Rayaru to-day morning. Thanks for the information which I never heard before.
