3 Moons to Honor Your Ancestors with Lord KaruppasamyFebruary 5, 2013
Are you in trouble, being slandered, sued, cheated or cursed and looking for immediate help? Karuppasamy, the Performer God who puts a quick end to all the evils, is on your side. He gives you protection from evil eye, curses, black magic or even evil plotting. He is the One who drives away the dark forces of lies, trickery and deceit with his own special brand of justice. He is the storm that washes your world clean. The divine combination of Kala Bhairava, Narasimha, Veerabhadra and Rudra gives birth to Karuppasamy.
Anybody can reach out to Karuppasamy without an intermediary. Put up an altar for him in your home. Since He visits the earth plane every day at 8:20 pm, remember to call on him at this time. You can give him whatever offering you like and state your problems for him to solve. We perform regular services for Karuppasamy at the AstroVed Homa Center. Send in your prayer requests for solving your problems and we will perform a ceremony to Karuppasamy on your behalf.
Ancestors Worship – New Moon: Thai Amavasya
The blessings of your deceased ancestors, both maternal as well as paternal, are a major reason why you succeed or do not succeed in life. If your ancestors are not resting peacefully, they will cause hardship in your life. Every aspect of your life is affected by your relationship with your ancestors, the very thoughts you think come from your ancestors. Which is why it is so important for you and for everybody; kings, lay people, even yogis, to honor them regularly.
The departed souls of your ancestors come to the earth plane every New Moon but there are 3 New Moons every year that are particularly strong and you can really connect and influence your ancestors. This coming New Moon is one of them.
3 Special Ancestor Moons
1. Thai Amavasya – The 1st New Moon after the Sun starts moving North (February 9th – 10th IST). Thai Amavasya is the only New Moon for Ancestors while the Sun is in its Northern ‘renewal’ phase.
2. Adi Amavasya The 1st New Moon after the Sun starts moving South (August 6th IST)
3. Mahalaya Amavasya– the New Moon in the Tamil month of Purattasi (Mahalaya Fortnight: September 20 – October 4 IST)
The most powerful way of honoring your ancestors is by performing the Tarpanam ritual. The word “Tarpanam” means “satisfying” or “satiating”. Tarpanam involves making special offerings to thank your ancestors for their contribution to your life, and pray for peace to their souls. The best way to connect with your ancestors is to perform Tarpanam on New Moon days especially Thai Amavasya.
AstroVed Tarpanam Specialists
Our Vedic specialists have been trained for years in communicating and feeding departed ancestors. They are very particular about performing Tarpanam on specific date and time. They conduct the ritual using sacred ‘food’ items, chanting prescribed mantras and vocalizing sounds to positively influence your departed ancestors.
Did You Know?
Performing Tarpanam for your ancestors, shows your respect towards them and supports the unity of your family and family lineage. Ancestors have more wisdom and spiritual power than they did during life and have the ability to positively affect your life.
