Why are Purattasi Saturdays So Special?

Purattasi is the sixth month of the Tamil year. This month is regarded as extremely auspicious and is dedicated to Lord Vishnu in all of his incarnations. Purattasi is one of the most fortunate months in the Vedic calendar. This month is seen to be the best time to praise Lord Perumal or Balaji for protecting the Universe during the Kali Yuga. This is the month that the Lord is said to have come on Earth. This month, the Lord is worshipped by fasting on Saturdays, which is Lord Vishnu’s favorite day. On all Saturdays of the Purattasi month, devotees practice stringent Vrat and give special prayers and rituals to Lord Vishnu.

During this month, Lord Venkateswara devotees observe a No Onion, No Garlic menu, while non-vegetarian devotees refrain from consuming non-veg cuisine. Purattasi month is highly auspicious for Lord Venkateshwara worship since it is believed that Lord came from Vaikunta to Earth during this month. Every year during this month, elaborate Poojas and huge celebrations are held at the Lord Venkateswara temple in Tirupathi.

Though the entire Purattasi month is ideal for worshipping Lord Venkateshwara, Purattasi Sani is particularly suitable.
