Thula Maasam

Published November 2, 2014 by Bingo's Mom

Tamil month Aippasi is called as Thula (is it a Malayalam word??) maasam and it considered to be auspicious to take bath in river Cauvery during this month. The month started on October 18 and ends at november 16. During this month, in Srirangam, they will take water from the river and do first abishekam for Ranganathar with this water. Kollidam river serves the same purpose for the rest of the year. It’s Andal’s duty to take water (in a golden pot) for Ranganathar. My in-laws house is located near cauvery river where Andal used to take water. Every day they will go to the main road to take Andal’s darshan 🙂 My MIL says whoever accompanying Andal used to run behind her unable to cope up with her speed 🙂
