We wish you all a Happy Tamil (Vilambi) New Year. இனிய தமிழ் புத்தாண்டு வாழ்த்துகள்.
Varusha Paruppu or Puthandu or Chittirai Vishu is the Tamil New Year celebrated all around the world by Tamil People. It is believed that Chittirai Vishu is the day during which Lord Brahma started the 'Creation'.
Akshaya Tritiya falling on 18th April and ‘Shankara Jayanthi’ falling on 20th April are significant events in Chitthirai month.
'Akshaya' means the one that keeps growing; on the Thritheeya day of the Chitirai month, Goddess Mahalakshmi blesses everyone with unlimited grace. Hence it is celebrated as "Akshaya Thritheeya". It is believed that with the blessings of the Lord Shiva and grace of the Goddess Mahalakshmi, Khubera himself became the lord for wealth on this day. Our dharma shastra advises that on this day, we can receive His grace by giving away alms to less abled people.
Shankara Jayanti is the celebration of the birth of Adi Shankaracharya who was a great Indian sage and philiosopher. Adi Shankaracharya combined the Advaita Vedanta Philospohy and revived it at a time when Hindu culture was on the decline.
