An Agasthiar Nugget
The Lord of the March of Time
Sri Kaala Bairava is the divine Lord who oversees the march of time.
Thus it's very important that we worship Sri Kaala Bairava on the new year day
and request Him to bless us with happiness, prosperity and spiritual progress
throughout the next twelve months. Perform archana and abishekam ceremonies
for Sri Kaala Bairava on the new year day.
On Pramaadhi New Year day, worship Sri Kaala Bairava in the town of Vairampatti
near Thirupatthoor which is on the Karaikudi-Madurai route.
Chant the Védas in honor of Sri Kaala Bairava.
Worship him with punugu and a garland of cashew nuts;
distribute the cashew nuts to the poor as anna dhaanam.
The results of this worship are relief from losses in business and solutions
to problems in the workplace and in family life.
