Thai Amavasya 2014 Tharpanam procedure in Tamil


Tomorrow, Thursday, the 30th of January 2014, is the Thai Amavasya (தை அமாவாசை).  In Sanskrit it is called the Makara Maasa Amavasya (மகர மாஸ அமாவாசை).  As has become the practice, the Thai Amavasya 2014 Tharpanam Procedure in Tamil is given here.

The Thai Amavasya is considered significant as this is the first Amavasya or the New Moon in the Utharayana Punya Kalam or the Northern movement of Sun. 

The traditional belief is that the Dakshinayana Punya Kalam is the ‘day’ for the Pitrus or ancestors and conversely the Utharayana is the ‘night’ time for them. 

It is believed that the ancestors visit the material earth (and us) during their daytime, that is the Dakshinayana period starting sometime around the Mahalaya Paksha period.  With the onset of Utharayana, the Thai Amavasya is considered special - as a sort of grand dinner or a send-off feast for the ancestral spirits.

Here is a snapshot of the relevant Sankalpam for tomorrow’s Thai Amavasya 2014.  The link for the PDF file with the full Amavasya Tharpanam Procedure in Tamil is below the image.

BTW the Amavasya Tharpana Sankalpam Generator 0.2beta has been withdrawn, as it does *not* contain the Sankalpam for Thai Amavasya 2014.

Update:
The current procedure in Tamil  & the Online Amavasya Tharpana Sankalpam Generator (and other current Pooja procedures in Tamil) can be accessed from the link at
