Significance of Margazhi / Dhanur Month

Today marks the start of the most auspicious month of Sri Vaishnavas, Marghazhi (Dhanur) Month. Here is a little post on Significance of Margazhi month.

  • Firstly, the month of Margazhi is Morning time for the Devas, who pray to Sriman Narayana in this time (One day for Devas is One year for us).
  • Sri Andal sung the 30 paasurams of Thirupaavai to attain Sriman Narayan during these 30 days and finally attained Sriman Narayana Himself.
  • Lord Krishna Himself said in Gita, “Among the months, I am Margazhi“.
  • The Pagal Pathu & Raa Pathu utsavams, when the Thiruvaimozhi Pasurams are recited, happen in all Divyadesams during this month only. Srirangam Pagal Pathu & Raa pathu Utsavams are very famous.
  • Vaikunta Ekadashi also occurs in this Auspicious month.

On a lighter note, Please do remember that, any month, any moment is auspicious for thinking, talking & reading about Sriman Narayana.

  1. This is Maithili from Penguin Books and work here as a Senior Designer.
    I am currently on one of our Black Classics (in this collection we have all the indian classics
    like the Ramayan, Mahabharat, Rigveda and so on).
    The new books is called Giver of the Worn Garland (Krishnadevaraya’s Amuktamalyada).
    For the same book I was looking for a painting of Goddess Andal and came across it on your blog.
    So wanted to check if this picture used here can be used for our book cover? Do you own this picture or can you let me know where I can source this image from.

    Penguin in India is not as big as it is in UK and the USA and therefore our budgets are very low.
    We usually pay Rs 3000 for all our cover art and credit on the back cover.

    Please let me know. Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Maithili,

      Wish to know if you can give me some contacts of artists who can express the tradition in a contemporary style for a book series on Dharma/religion

      Would be grateful if you could help me locate the right person.

      From Bangalore
