Changing of Sharadus during Pongal

From: Bharadwaj, Jaganath (
Date: Tue Dec 30 1997 - 12:08:13 PST

Just as men are required to change their yagnopavitams during Avani
avittam and some other times, women are also required to change their
Saradus periodically.  One of the times this is done is during Pongal.
At the Lakshmi Hayagrivar sannidhi in Nangalnallur this is an annual
festival that draws a large crowd.  Wearing this pavitra Saradu
sanctified by Lord Hayagrivar Himself, brings spiritual and material
prosperity on the wife and her husband.

Sri Ahobila Muth in conjunction with Lakshmi Hayagriva Perumal Koil in
Nanganallur Chennai, has made arrangements to bring this Saradus to
anyone in the US who is interested in obtaining Sri Hayagriva's
blessings in this fashion.  Interested Asthikas may please send a check
for $20.00 to Sri Ahobila Muth, 1908 Preswood Drive, Hixson, TN 37343.
