Puratasi Sani Meals

Standard

Puratasi Sani: Purattasi Month falls from the middle of September till the middle of October. I love our (TAMIL) cultures, since it’s related with the healthiness of human beings. It is believed that Lord Venkatachalapathy is born on his month and special prayers made on all the Venkatachalapathy Temples. Worshipping Sani Bhagavan on this day is also an important one because during this time it is believed that Sani Bhagavan (Saturn) losses its malefic powers, and therefore we fetch more benefits. So people under fasting and pray to god on Saturdays.
