Purattasi month or Purattasi Masam is the auspicious month (generally falls on September-October), dedicated to Lord Venkateshwara (Lord Vishnu) in the Tamil community. Especially in the Purattasi month Saturdays (gravely first, third, fifth Saturday), Vishnu devotees observe fasting and perform Purattasi Saturday Pooja to honor Lord Vishnu and his numerous incarnations for saving the universe for ages.
As Saturday is the favorite day of Lord Venkateshwara or Tirupati, believers observe a strict Saturday fasting, offer Purattasi Saturday Pooja and eat only vegetarian meals during the Purattasi month. As a result, Vishnu diminishes the devotee’s Shani Dosha (Saturn affliction) and bestows with extravagant life plus business success. By worshipping Vishnu during Puratasi month will access your path towards salvation.
Many people perform Arogya Pashupatam Homam on the 4th Saturday of Purattasi Masam, wishing for healthy living life. Arogya Pashupatam Homam benefits as eliminating health ailments and undesired disturbances, stress and provide a relaxed, peaceful mind and body. This Vedic ritual has been the witness of emphatic changes in human life.
You should consider lighting Maavilakku– the rice flour ghee lamp on each Saturday of Purattasi month and praise Lord Venkateshwara or Vishnu by chanting Vishnu mantras or Lord Venkateswara mantra. As per belief, the ray of Maavilakku will destroy all your surrounding evil energies and brighten your life.
