Sri Raamajayam
SrimathE GopAla DEsika MahA DEsikAya Namaha

Dear Bhagavathaas,
Last weekend we were discussing a peculiarity for Munithraya Sampradayam that,
this time Ashtami-Rohini Convergence ends before Chandrodayam on Tuesday and how should
we celebrate it according to Sastras.
After Suryodhayam, Ashtami-Rohini occuring whole day/night
After Chandrodayam, Ashtami-Rohini Convergence
Ashtami-Rohini convergence

AdiyEn discussed the exact timings for Ashtami, Rohini and Chandrodayam, with Sri Poundareekapuram Srimad Andavan Ashram, Sri GopAla Desika MahadEsikan, and Swamin suggested we celebrate on Tuesday(last of the above cases).  As for Sri.Ahobila Mutt and Thenkalai Paramparyam, they would celebrate it on Wednesday.

Please note this is valid for US Bhagavathaas only, and for Singapore & India, I guess Sri.Krishna Jayanthi is on Wednesday(including Madam, Thenkalai Sampradayam in USA) without ambiguity.

If a Bhagavathaa from Munithraya Sampradayam want to cross-check this with their Acharya/other sources, AdiyEn would humbly request, to include the Ashtami, Rohini, Chandrodayam  local timings in their discussions, to get the correct answer.

Apart from all these logistics and calculations, AdiyEn wish you all Happy Celebrations, recollecting/enjoying the birth of our "Kutti Krishna", who stays in our homes/hearts forever.

AdiyEn Sri Raamanuja Daasan,

Sudarsana Dasosmi
