Yugaadi

What is Yugadi?-

Yuga + aadi  = Yugadi – Meaning starting day  of yuga.   i.e.,  Yuga  = era,      Aadi = beginning.

It is the starting day of Kaliyuga.

Kali Yuga began on Feb 20, midnight 3102 BC.   Kaliyuga started the day when Sri Krishna paramathma  finished his avatara of dusta jana bhanjana at Dwaraka and at the same time Duryodhana breathed his last.

There are 4 yugadees.

  1. Vaishaka Shukla Triteeya – Tretayuga
  2. Bhadrapada Krishna Trayodashi – Kaliyuga
  3. Kartika Shukla Navami – Krutayuga
  4. Maga Shukla pournami – Dwaparayuga

(Brahma did the srusti of this world in suryodaya kaala on Chaitra Shukla Paadya – that is why it is termed Yugadi)

Yugadi as per Kaliyuga starta from Chaitra Shudda Paadya (Vasanta Rutu) “Samvatsara” means varsha, i.e., year.  As per Hindu tradition, there are 60 samvatsaraas, each has different names. As per pouranika belief, we are in the 51st year of Chaturmukha Brahma.   One day of Chaturmukha brahma =   chaturyuga sahasraani brahmaNO dinamuchyatE – 4 Yugachakras to be rotated 1000 times.    One time rotation of yugachakra would be 4320000 years.  In Brahma’s one morning, there will be 14 manvantaraas.  Now, we are in the seventh manvantara, the Vaivasvata Manvantara.  Out of 432000 years, only 5115 years have been completed and we are in the 5116th year.  We are in the 1937 Shaalivaahana Shaka.  That is a shaka based on the date of founding of the empire by Shalivahana,   The initiation of the era known as Shalivahana Saka to celebrate his victory against the Sakas in the year 78AD.

On this day, we have to get up at Arunodayakala itself (daily we have to get up at Arunodaya kaala) with bhagavannamasmarane – we have to take abhyanjana snaana.    We have to get the idols of Srihari with Abhyanjana snaana  using Oil and seegepudi (sheekakai).    After doing the same the remaining portion of oil and seegepudi to be used for our oil bath.

We must have the smarane of sapta chiranjeevigalu –

ashwathaamaa balirvyaasa: hanUmaanscha vibhIShaNa: |

अश्वत्तामा बलिर्व्यास: हनूमांश्च विभीषण: । कृप: परशुरामश्च सप्तैते चिरंजीविन: ।

After this, we have to do the vishesha pooja Then we must have the panchangashravana brahmana mukhena.

If in the morning it is not possible, then we can do the same in the evening also.  We will get the punya of Gangasnaanadhi punya with the panchanga shravana

Bevu bella  Samarpane –    During Naivedya we must do the samarpana of Bevu-bella (nimbaka dala) and after samarpana to Srihari, Lakshmidevaru, Mukyapraanadigalu, we have to take that Bevu – bella by chanting the following mantra

shataayurvajradEhaaya sarvasampatkaraaya cha |
sarvaariShTavinaashaaya nimbakadaLabhakShaNam |

शतायुर्वज्रदेहाय सर्वसंपत्कराय च । सर्वारिष्टविनाशाय निंबकदळभक्षणम् ।

ಶತಾಯುರ್ವಜ್ರದೇಹಾಯ ಸರ್ವಸಂಪತ್ಕರಾಯ ಚ | ಸರ್ವಾರಿಷ್ಟವಿನಾಶಾಯ ನಿಂಬಕದಳಭಕ್ಷಣಮ್ |

Meaning – With the bhakshana of Nimbaka dala (bevu-bella, Our body will be fit and strong as a Diamond and it is sarvaarista naashaka.  It raises our ayassu.)

Ingredients required – Jaggery, Bevu (neem), water,

How to prepare? – We have to clean the neem leaves, grind with a bit of water and mix jiggery into it,   Bevu-bella mixture is ready.   This we have to take after taking Theertha on the Yugadi Day.

Bevu or Neem leaf preparation symbolically represents the different facets of life – sweet and bitter experiences of life.  Bevu Bella is just a simple mixture of fresh neem leaves and unprocessed broken jaggery.  It ls symbolic to  welcome the new year by first taking a mixture of neem flowers (Bevu) and jaggery  (bella),  which represents that we treat the bitterness and sweetness of life alike. Its significance is that life is a mixture of joys and sorrows and we should accept both in the right spirit.

Why is  Panchanga shravana required?

ಪಂಚಾಂಗ ಶ್ರವಣ ಫಲ

Panchanga = 5 angaas = tithi (day)+ Vaara (week) + Nakshatra (star) + Yogaa + Karana.
By knowing the Tithi for the day - We will get wealth (shriya)
By knowing the "Week" for the day - We will have vruddhi in ayushya
By knowing the "Nakshatra" - Our sins will be destroyed
By knowing the "Yogas" -  "Rogaas (diseases) will be removed"
By knowing the "Karana" - Karyasiddi
In this way the panchanga shravana brings us good to every one who hears/reads
