8.30 pm Deeparadhanai

POURNAMI VRATAS

Members are aware that our Sabha has been performing Pournami Pooja for many years. Though this was embarked on for greater participation by the members particularly the ladies to take part in the Lalitha Sahasranama Archanai and Devi Pooja, we find the response is not quite encouraging. In order that more members take the opportunity to participate in the Pooja, it has been decided that members can have special sankalpam and pooja for any of their family members’ particularly thos who happen to have their birthday, marriage day etc to fall on the Pournami day. A moderate amount of S$11/- per participant has been fixed for such participation and we hope that members will use this opportunity to take part in greater numbers. Chitra Pournami Pooja this year falls on the nakshathiram "Swathi"

PANGUNI UTHIRAM:

On this day, many temples in south India commence their annual festival. Although Thai Poosam, Masi Makam, Panguni Uthiram are based on Nakshataram (Star), sometimes, they coincide with the Pournami day on the respective months.

3.2  SLOKA CLASSES

As mentioned in the earlier circulars, Sloka classes will be held every second Sunday of the month commencing April ’99 at 3.40 pm at the residence of Sri G. Srinivasan (LS-04), 16 Jalan Tamban,off St Patricks Road, Tel" 346-1850.

The Sabha requests all interested children as well as adults to join the classes and avail of the good opportunity.
