Dear devotee,                                                                                                                                                September 01, 2017

It is believed that at auspicious timings, the “chaithanyam” gets multiplied and hence the one who takes darshan of the murthi during festivals  get more benefited. Temples protect our culture, through the dharmic and spiritual activities. This is how moral values for next generation is passed.

To give something to God is an extremely elevated activity – whether you give some of your time to hear and chant,  your energy,  your money or ultimately  your love. In whatever way you offer to HIM, HE will reciprocate in manifold ways. If you can therefore give a little to please the Lord, it is also for your own benefit. A devotee offers everything – his words, his actions and his thoughts. This is, of course, an elevated platform, but as laid down in the Vedas that if you cannot do this, then give at least a part of the fruits of your activities and you will gain  to a spiritual platform.

 The 74th edition of the Annual Festival of the famous Tattamangalam village start with Maha Ganapathi Homam on 21st December (Thursday) and culiminates with Aarattu coupled with end of the year on 31st December 2017.  During the 11days, various religious and cultural events are planned as detailed below.

ANNADHAANAM

ANNA DHAANAM

 

Annadhaanam is a unique scheme among all donations. Nothing predominates it. By donating to Annadhaanam,  people get moksha. ‘Annam Para Brahma Swarupam’. Food only can support the body to attain Dharma, Artha, Kama, Moksha. The person, who participate in this sacred Annadhaanam, by giving generous donations will be blessed by divine Gods.

 

 

Creatures cannot live without food, hence “giving donations to Annadhaanam will serve as Pranadanam” to the people who are in hungry. Annadhaanam is a sacred activity. It is said that the sacred works done by the people with the energy acquired by food bestows half of its effect to the donor of food and the rest is to that person. Many positive results like this can acquire from the Annadhaanam. You may donate, to feed at least 100 people, by cash or in kinds like vegetables, cereals, oil, rice and other provisions.  The Annadhaanam festival starts from 22nd till the end of utsavam on 31st December, 2017.
