According to legendary, the deities wake up early in the morning during
this holy month of Dhanurmasa and perform special prayers to Sri Maha
Vishnu during the auspicious period of “Brahm Muhurta”, which is one and
half hours before sunrise.
Keeping the legacy forward, during this month, devotees offer prayers to
the Lord very early in the morning. The month of Dhanurmasa is
considered a very special month for performing Puja of Vishnu.
Worshiping Vishnu who is believed to be none other than Lord
Venkateswara in Kaliyuga, on a single day during this auspicious period
is equal to worshiping Vishnu with devotion for 1000 years.
Andal Sri Goda Devi is considered to be one among the 12 Akwars. The
Tiruppavai is a collection of thirty stanzas (paasurams) written by
Andal also know as Nachiyar, in praise of the Lord Sri Venkateswara. It
is a part of Alwar Divya Prabandha and is important in Tamil
Literature. Goda Devi performed a wonderful vratham or prayer called
Dhanurmasa Vrahram to tell us that, by practcing this vratham, one can
attain all materialistic happiness along with the enternal bliss. The
period, from when the sun moves into the constellation of Dhanurrasi or
Sagittarius and until it moves out to the constellation of Makara or
Capricorn is know as Dhanurmasam. This month is said to be holiest for
observing penance, worship, vartas and other spiritual programmes etc,
to attain salvation.
