February 14th 2008 - Krithigai Vratham & Bheemashtami

Vrathas are called "Upavasas" which literally means "Living near God". The devotee voluntarily imposes on himself food restrictions and emotional restrictions.

Krithigai Vratham:

For which God?
Lord Murugan or Subramanya

Significance of Krithigai vratham:
For oneness in the family

The eighth day of the Shukla Paksha of the Magha month is known as Bheemashtami. It was on this day when Bheesma Pitamah passed away.
