A note on Karadayan nonbu on 14-3-2020 Saturday

A note  on Karadayan nonbu   on  14-3-2020 Saturday  

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

தோரம் க்ருஹ்ணாமி சுபகே ஸஹாரித்ரம் தராம்யஹம்
பர்துஹு ஆயுஷ்ய ஸித்யர்த்தம் சுப்ரீதா பவ ஸர்வதா

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 11.51  AM  IST( 14thmarch) and learned Vadhyars   suggest  that this pooja should be done  between   10.45 Am to 11-30 AM  .
The corresponding time   for  this interval   in different   countries  is given below:-

Dubai 9.15 to 10 AM (Saturday)
Singapore   1.15 PM -2 PM (Saturday)
Kulalampur  1.15  PM-2 PM (Saturday)  
Frankfurt and Paris  6.15 AM-7 AM (Saturday)  
London 5.15   -6 AM (Saturday )
USA  eastern time   1.15 AM-2.00 AM(Saturday)*
USA central time     0.15 AM -1.00AM (Saturday)*
Western time   10.15 PM -11 PM (Saturday)
Sydney   4.15 PM -5.00PM  (Saturday)
Tokyo   2.15 PM t0 3 PM (Saturday) 

*I understand  when it is very late  at night like this    , the  pooja is done before going to bed.

          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

மம பர்த்துச்ச அன்யோன்யப்ரீதி
அபிவ்ருத்தியர்த்தம் அவியோகார்த்தம் 
ஸ்ரீ காமாக்ஷி பூஜாம் கரிஷ்யே

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

ஏகாம்பர நாத தயிதாம் காமாக்ஷீம் 
புவனேஸ்வரீம் த்யாயாமி ஹ்ருதயே 
தேவீம் வாஞ்சிதார்த்த ப்ரதாயிநீம்
காமாக்ஷீம் ஆவாஹயாமி.

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.( http://stotrarathna.blogspot.in/2013/03/yamashtakam.html
