‘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.

    On command by Sri Bala Periyava and Maha Periyava , Sri Ramanan and his wife visited Vedaranyam and Kodikkarai at the time of the previous Mahodaya Punyakaalam.They were Blessed with a child shortly afterwards.Great Blessings! Maha Periyava’s Words are that Mahodaya PuNyakaalam Snanam at VedaaraNyam will get progeny. As Sri Ramanan says clearly for childless couples, Mahodaya Punyakaalam Snaanam at VedaraNyam or Rameswaram will definitely Bless them with children. Hara Hara Shankara, Jaya Jaya Shankara!
