Mahodhaya Punya Kalam is on 8th February 2016.
‘Arthodhaya Punya Kaalam’ and ‘Mahodhaya Punya Kaalam’ are very rare happenings and comes once in every several decades. ‘Mahodhaya Maha Punniya Kalam’ is a very rare happening and is considered an extremely auspicious day. It occurs on 25th day of Thai Amavasya, Manmadha Varusham (Feb. 8, 2016). ‘Mahodhaya Punya Kaalam’ is a day when the following attributes align together in a single day –
Thithi – Amavasya
Nakshathiram – Thiruvonam
Yogam – Vyathi Patham
Month – Maagam
Vaaram – Soma (Monday)
The alignment of these above attributes is a very rare phenomenon. If the same set of attributes align on Sunday (Vaaram), it is called ‘Arthodhaya Maha Punniya Kalam’. The last occurrence happened several decades back. That shows what a significant day this is.
During this auspicious time, one needs to do Snanam, Shradham, Dhanam, Tharpanam, Puja, and Vratham.
