2017 Aadi Krithigai – Festival dedicated to Lord Muruga

Aadi Krithigai is a significant festival famous in the Tamil month of Adi or Aadi. In 2017, the date of Aadi Krithigai is July 19. The festival is dedicated to Lord Muruga or Subrahamaniya. By the way, the festival is also referred as Aadi Krittika, Kirthigai, Kritika and Krithika. The festival is celebrated with fervor in the Murugan Temples in Tamil Nadu.

Adi Krithigai in some regions is celebrated to symbolize the conquest of good over evil, when Murugan slew the demon Surapadma. After the total destruction of the demon, Muruga blessed devotees with boons.

According to Hindu scriptures, Lord Muruga was born as six dissimilar babies. And he was looked after by the six Krittika stars. Later, Lord Muruga was combined as a single baby with six heads by Goddess Parvati. There are many variations to this legend.

The Krithigai star or Nakshatram is careful highly favorable to worship Muruga. And Aadi Krithigai is more significant because Aadi is the first month in the Dakshinayana punyakalam – when the sun god changes his way from north to south.source:http://www.hindu-blog.com/
