Nagapanchami Pooja

Astrology envisages that each Thidhi constitutes its own divine concept. The great Naga deities are the godly embodiments of the Rahu as it is believed. Hence the Suklapaksha Panchami of 'Karkadaka' month is more suited to Naga worship. On this day Abhishekam of milk, honey, ghee, tender coconut, gingelly oil, turmeric powder, panchamrutham, etc are done. Moreover Mavilakku, garlanding of Paruthimala etc also are carried out as part of the penance of the devotees. For those who are under the clutches of the Rahu dosha or under that of the Sarpadosha can get rid of all its ill effects by the said Abhisheka or Mavilakku and Paruthimala offerings. Several devotees enjoy the blessings of Nagaraja-it is experienced.
