March 16th – What is so special about this day?
March 16th 2016 happens to be the most auspicious “AYUSHMAN BHAVAH SAUMYA” day. Is that what is so special about March 16th? It is an auspicious day – no doubt. Yet, the English Calendar date and year for “AYUSHMAN BHAVAH SAUMYA” would keep varying according to the astrological calculations. March 16th 2016 happens to be one of those auspicious days.
What else is so special about March 16th? Before we think further, let us refresh our memory on what “AYUSHMAN BHAVAH SAUMYA” means…
According to our Panchangam, “Of the twenty-seven Yogas, one is named Ayushman. Of the eleven Karanas, one is the called the Bhava. Among the week days, the Saumya Vaasaram refers to a Wednesday. When the Ayushman Yoga and the Bhava Karana occur together on the Sowmya Vaasaram (Wednesday), that day is said to be Shlagya (Very Auspicious Day).” It is said in Sastras that any sankalpam made on a Ayushman Yoga, Bhava Karana and a Saumya Vaara shall get answered divinely!! That is why, when people bless someone they always say “DHIRGHA AYUSHMAN BHAVAH SAUMYA” ! The “Thathparyam” behind this blessing is – “When Ayushman Yogam, Bhava Karanam, Saumya Vaasaram all three occur together, whatever good Phala would be gotten, I bless that you may get all those fruits…”.
Coming back to where we started : March 16th – What is so special about this day?
“God expresses Himself in many inexplicable forms and exposes His presence in many mysterious ways!“ – Sri MahaPeriyava
Thinking deeply, it makes us realize what HE said applies to HIM! This is evident from HIS Omnipresence across the globe every single day!!! It was on March 16th 1959, Our Periyava, Our Umachi Thatha, Our Nadamaadum Deivam gave the so called “Farewell Message” which is actually a “Welfare message” for all of us!
What else can mark March 16th as special or as auspicious than this?
Let us listen to HIS Farewell Message (Welfare Message per se) that HE gave us exactly 57 years ago.
His Heap of Humility in this farewell message shatters the ego that we all exhibit one time or the other…
It is very soothing to hear in God’s own voice: “Neenga Vera, Naan Vera Ella, Neenga Yelarum Sendhu Dhan Naan”. What other blessings can we seek than these words from HIM on the “AYUSHMAN BHAVAH SAUMYA” day ?
Let’s pay our Obeisance to Him who bestows happiness to all people in all ways and at all times!
