Aadi Velli represents the Fridays that occur in the Tamil month of Aadi (July-August). These Fridays are earmarked for the worship of various Hindu Goddesses. Aadi month 2021 is considered to be a very auspicious month. It heralds the advent of the monsoons and is associated with the power of the water or river Goddesses. Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays especially are considered favorable for the worship of all temples that honor female deities. Vedic astrology holds that, in the month of Aadi, the Sun transits into Cancer sign, which is ruled by the Moon. Astronomically, the Sun’s transit marks its journey towards the Southern direction, and this is called Dakshinayanam. This month is very auspicious for worshipping Goddess energy and facilitating spiritual progress. For this reason, weddings and similar functions are never conducted by Hindus during this month.

Importance of Aadi Velli:

Aadi is the fourth month of the Tamil calendar. It is very important for spiritual activities, as the power of Goddess Shakti is greater during this time and helps to overcome undesirable elements. The 10th day is Aadi Pooram. Thirukalyanam, or the divine marriage of Goddess Andal, is conducted on this day, and unmarried girls perform special Poojas to the Goddess. Worshipping Goddess energy in her various forms is said to be auspicious during the month of Aadi.

Puranas behind Aadi Velli:

The Goddess appeared as Pachai Amman (an aspect of Goddess Parvati) to create peace and harmony in the world. Pachai Amman also appeared in many sacred places and infused divine energy into these places. As Thirumullaivaayal, she brought peace and prosperity. Also regarded as the Goddess of marriage and fertility, she bestows blessings on young maidens seeking a good groom.

Celebration and Rituals of Aadi Velli:

 All Aadi Fridays have their own significance, and hence Aadi Velli Pooja is performed with unique offerings.
