Dhanurmasam
Dec 15th - Jan 14th 5:30 AM - 7:30 AM
Suprabhatam,Tirupalli Ezhucchi Tirupavai,Archana & Sathumurai (Prasadam)

"Masaanaam margasheershoham" , which means "in all the months, Margasira is the most auspicious", is what Lord Krishna says about this month in Bhagavad-Gita. One year is One day for the Gods and Margasira is the Brahma muhurtam in this , this is the 96 minutes before sunrise and this is the period which increases the godliness in a person. It is also known as Dhanur masa since during this month the sun transits through Dhanur rasi (Sagittarius).Vedas and agamas say mornings in this month are ideal for worship of the Lord.
Andal, one of the twelve Alwars, on the advice of her father, Perialwar, performed pavai nonbu to merge with Sri Ranganatha [Lord Vishnu]. The story of this was sung by Godadevi in the form of Tiruppavai pasuras (meaning Auspicious Songs).She regarded the presiding deity of the temple Sri Vatapatra Sai (Alilla Kanan) as the Lord Krishna, villiputtoor as Vrindavan, the temple as Nanda Gopaís home, her friends as Gopikas and she herself as one Gopika. As a result she found her Sri Ranganatha swamy Lord Vishnu.

About Temple

Hindu Temple of Virginia (HTVA) is a dream project of two priest brothers, They have been in the service of Lord for many long years and are rendering expert priestly services to the Hindu community for the last 20 years. Many of our gurus who believed in ?Sanathana Dharma? had followed the Vedic practices thoroughly. They taught and trained many young disciples in Aagamas and Vedas and thus they passed on the treasure of knowledge to the next generations. It was a gigantic task and they accomplished it with due devotion and dedication. They preferred temples as the main centers for these activities.
