A note  on Karadayan nonbu   on  14-3-2018

Compiled by

     The  Karadayan Nolumbu(nombu)  commemorating    the epic story  of Savithri   regaining her husband from Lord Yama   is celebrated   at the last few minutes before the end of Masi(Kumbam) month  and before  the beginning  of  the month of Panguni(Meenam) .Normally   all  unmarried ladies  and married  ladies  with husbands  alive(sumangali)   offer   sweet as as well as  salt  Adai (made of rice harvested in the Kar season-May june ) , butter, banana  fruit   along with Vettilai  Pakku   to the Goddess and a yellow thread   which is offered    in the pooja   is tied by themselves or their mother in case of Unmarried ladies    and tied by the husband in case of Sumangailis   At that time they chant

Dhram gruhnami subhage sahardhraam
Dharami aham bharthu
Ayushya Sidhartham supreethabhava sarvadha

I am taking the thread ,Oh pleasant goddess, with affection ,
And I am wearing  it   for long life   span of my husband.
Become always   pleased with me.

The following   Tamil chant  is also chanted

Urukaadha Venneyum oradaiyam naan nootren
Orukkalum en kanavar ennai vittu pririyadhirukka vendum

"உருகாத வெண்ணெயும் ,ஓர் அடையும் நோற்று உனக்குநான்  வைத்தேன் ,எந்நாளும் என் கணவர் எனை விட்டு நீங்காத அருள்தருவாய்என்று  அம்மனை நோக்கி வேண்டி நமஸ்கரிக்கவும்.

(I have offered  you unmelted butter    and One Adai  ,PLeae bless me so that my husband  will live with me forever)

Most of those    who observe the Nombu   do not take    food   from morning till   they   do the pooja 

   This year the month  starts   at 11.41 PM ISTand learned Vadhyars   suggest  that this pooja should be done  between 9 pm-10 pm  and before the month beginning, . THerefor  all cooking and preperations can be done before 9.00PM

The corresponding time  in different   countries  is given below:-

India  11.41   Pm
Dubai 10.11 Pm (Their local time)
Singapore   2.11  AM  Thursday
Kulalampur  2.11  AM THursday
Frankfurt and Paris  7.11 PM   thursday (Their local time)
London 6.11 PM Wednesday (Local time)
USA  eastern time   1.11  PM  Wednesday (Local time)
USA central time     12,11  PM Wednesday  (local time)
Western time  10.11  AM  Wednesday  (Local time)
Sydney   5.11 AM  Thursday (local time  )
Tokyo   3.11 AM Thursday (Local time)
          It is a practice in certain homes   to  worship goddess Kamakshi  by calling a priest . Instead  you can also  chant the following Sankalpam and perform the Pooja yourselves

Mama   deerga    saumanglya   avapthyartham  , mama bhartheu   anyonya  preethi ,
Abhivrudhyartham  , Aviyogartham    Sri Kamakshi poojaam karishye

For  getting the status of Sumangali   for a very long time ,
For increase  of mutual love between me and my husband
For never being ever getting parted with him ,
I am doing the worship of  Goddess  Kamakshi.

And chant the  Dhyanam

Ekambara  nadha   dayithaam   kamakshim  ,
BHuvaneswarim  dhyayami  hrudaye,
DEvim vanchithartha  pradhayinum

I  meditate  on the wife of Elambara Nadha,
Who is the goddess  of the universe in my mind ,
So that  the goddess   fulfill my mind’s desires.

and worship the goddess  by offering her flowers

. It would be great if you can chant the Yamashtakam   chanted by Savithri  to  get back her husband.(
