Namaskaram!

On behalf of the National Executives of Sangam and the Devasthanam Board, I welcome you all to the Annual 87th 10 Days Thaipoosam Thriunaal Pooja 2013.

Taai is an auspicious month in Tamil, this festiva is celebratedon the full moon day this time when the moon passes through the star ?Poosam or Pusya?. The Hindus all over the world are celebrating this festival in Murugun Temples including the bastions of Lord Murugun (Arupadaiveedu) in Tamil Nadu, Malaysia, Singapore, London, Sydney, Paris and U.S.A. Lord Murugun is the younger Son of Lord Shiva & Parvati. In Tamil Murugun means handsome. The handsome God is represented as Lord of War and he is known as the chief of Dev Army (Dev Senapathy) ?Thaipoosam? is dedicated to the Lord Murugun. Murugun is also known as Karthikeya, (Karthik Swami), Subramanya, Shanmukhan, Shadanan, and Guhan.

It is believed that on this day , Goddess Parvati presented a hance to Lord Murugun to Vanguish the demon army of tarakasura and combat the evil deeds. Therefore Thaipoosam is a celebration of good and evil.

This occasion gives us all every reason to offer our prayers to the almighty to ensure that the year 2013 gives us all prosperity, good health ,peace and protection from evil throughout the globe.

Iwelcome all devotees, friends and Sangam Members to the 2013 ?Thaipoosam? celebration and thank all for donation and support.
