Mahalaya Paksha is the Fortnight (2 weeks period) period in the month of September on Krishna paksha or the waning phase. These 2 weeks are highly significant for performing rituals and offerings for our ancestors. It also relives us from Pitru dosha. When a soul departs, during the rituals, Go-Dhanam is done for the welfare of the departed soul, followed by naimittika karma during Amavasya days.
Performing prescribed rituals during Mahalaya Paksha is also a part of naimittika karma. Among the rituals and practices during Mahalaya Paksha, feeding cows is also a part of it, for the welfare of the entire family and generations to come.
We request you to make use of our Goshala to feed the cows during this Mahalaya Paksha.
Each cow will be fed with the following: – 10 Bunches of grass (Arungam pul & C04 Napier grass) – 2 Bunches of Spinach (Agathi keerai) – 10 Kgs of straw – 2 Kgs of Peanut oil cake (Kadalai Punnakku), corn flour (Chola Maavu) and Paddy Bran (Arisi Thavudu), in the ratio of 1:1:2 – Natural mineral mixture, every time.
