Update: Pushya Nakshatra and Thursday – July 4th 2019

Update: Rayaru today at Mantralaya – July 4th 2019.


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

July 4th 2019 is Pushya Nakshatra and Thursday.

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.

Anyone who recites this holy Sri Raghavendra Stotram 108 times with intense devotion, on the occasion of solar/lunar eclipse or the combination of Sunday with the star Pushya, will be relieved of all evil influence, e.g., haunting etc. (27)

    Meera avare, pushyaarka is pushya nakshatra on Sunday only, and not on Thursday or Sunday as I’ve heard. Even in mutt link that you have sent, it says it pushya nakshatra on Sunday only. It doesn’t mention on Thursday or Sunday. Please clarify 🙏🙏🙏

      If Pushya Nakshatra comes on a Thursday, it is called as Guru Pushya Nakshatra and if its falls on Sunday, it is called as Ravi Pushya Nakshatra. Both days are important.
