Sundararaja Perumal – About God Soundararaja Perumal

Sundararaja Perumal is a form of Lord Vishnu and is worshipped in Vaishnava Temples in Tamil Nadu. As Soundararaja Perumal, Lord Vishnu is the handsome groom. Usually in this form, he marries Goddess Lakshmi, Bhudevi, Sridevi, or Andal.

Perumal simply means ‘god’. Sundaraja means the most handsome.
The divine beauty of Vishnu in this form is beyond comparison.

In Sundararaja Perumal temples, the most important festival is the wedding of Lord Vishnu with his consort.
The murti of Sundararaja Perumal is usually four armed. He is kind and benevolent. Two hands will be blessing posture. The other two hands usually hold conch, lotus or chakra.

Hutashana Yog in Hindu Astrology - Hutashani Tithi

Hutashana Yog in Hindu astrology is considered bad. Auspicious activities are avoided in this yog. The yoga is the result of a combination of certain days and tithi.

Following are the Hutasahan Yog Tithis

Monday – Sashti (sixth day of fortnight) Tuesday – Saptami (seventh day of a fortnight) Wednesday – Ashtami (eighth day of a fortnight) Thursday – Navami (ninth day of a fortnight) Friday – Dasami (tenth day of a fortnight) Saturday – Ekadasi (ninth day of a fortnight) Sunday – Dwadashi (12th day of fortnight)

All forms of travels should be discarded when Hutashana Yog is present.

Silence creates an inner sweetness – Swami Sukhabodhananda

Worry is absence of silence. Worry is like a rocking chair that keeps you busy and leads you nowhere.

If one learns the art of being in peace with ‘what is,’ then one experiences silence.

Silence creates an inner sweetness, an inner freshness. You feel specious inside. In this state, you start living from moment to moment. The bitterness of the past and the anxiety of the future just disappear into the divine present.

One of the greatest paradoxes of life is happiness is within but we never delve ‘within’ and continue to be beggars of happiness.
Existence unfolds the truth that joy is within and without effort, it exists.
