Weekly Pooja Rangolis – ವಾರದ ದೇವರ ಪೂಜೆ ರಂಗೋಲಿಗಳು

Ms. Varsha Belgal, had sent me the rangolis in July 2009. Her mother had sent her the rangolis to be drawn each day of the week. I had asked Varsha to send me the significance of these rangolis. I never heard back from Varsha again. This rangolis were in my draft for more than 3 years now. So, finally decided to post it as is.

Thanks so much, Varsha for the rangolis. Click on the image to see a bigger and better quality picture.

Handbook for performing Festivals

I received an email from a mailing list which I have subscribed, which had links to several books on Hinduism. As I was browsing through the content of the web site which had several important books scanned, I found this simple and very well explained book which has details of all the festivals, the rituals which needs to be followed and so on.. This book is in Kannada. You can read the book online or even download a PDF file, whichever is convenient to you all.

Attached below is the link for the book:

P.S: The details for all the many festivals coming during Shravan Masa starts from page 32 onwards.
