Simple South Indian Festive Thali, that I prepared during this Sravana Pournami. Which is the 15th day of the month of SHRAAVAN as per Hindu Calendar. Mostly, falls during the month of August as per English calendar.
I prepared the above simple platter / bhojanam as an offering to the Gods & Goddesses on the occasion of this festival.
Importance of ‘Shravana Pournami’:
Though the entire month is considered auspicious, but this particular day is the best of all, because of more than one occasions falling on.
- First and foremost is, the boys of the Hindu Brahmin Community start seeking their vedic studies from a Guru, at his Gurukul.
- Men and Boys who have already got their upanayanam (traditional sacred thread ceremony) done, do replace the thread with a new one.
- Raksha bandhan, the most happening festival, in North India, also falls on this day. Now-a-days this festive spirit spread to the South as well. On this day, sisters tie a sacred thread to the wrist, to each & every brother of their family. Which signifies a promise made, to love, care and support each other.
- And personally, it’s our marriage anniversary on this day. And so it makes us feel even more special for a celebration.
