  1. Namaskaram,
    Rig Veda Upakarma in US is falling on 24th August. Shravana Nakshatra falls on that date. Temples are also conducting event on that day only. Please update.

  2. 24 AUGUST Friday Vara laxmi pooja is correct.

    May I suggest inclusIon of following events..

    14 Angaraka chaturthi.. dhoorva ganapathi vratham.
    Performing pooja with dhoorva (arugam pull) prefered.

    15 naaga/Garuda Panchami

    17 Avani (SIMHA} month begins

    26 Hayagreeva Jayanthi. . Recite Hayagreeva stotram
    Hayagreeva is a form of Lord Vishnu


  3. 25th August is Saturday

  4. All US temple calendars indicate Varalakshmi vradam on 24th. August, but it is on 25th. as per Sage of Kanchi. Pl. confirm which is correct. Thanks.
