Aadi is the divine month when Gods and Goddesses decide to enhance the lives of their graceful creations i.e.humans. The Tamil month of Aadi falls during the second half of the year known as Dakshinayanam when the Sun transits from the northern hemisphere to the Southern during July. The transition from the Southern to the Northern hemisphere in the month of January is known as Uthirayanam. From time immemorial, both these periods have been considered auspicious for the worship of the Gods and Goddesses. Aadi Krithigai and Thai Poosam are important festivals for Lord Subramaniya. Aadi Krithigai is a day auspicious for Lord Muruga , the second son of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathi.
