Srimathe Raamanujaya namaha, Pranaams to HH Sri Jeeyar Swamiji,
I request you to kindly clarify on the same. adiyEn is pasting the question again herewith. Someone trying to answer said that those thithis went to lord and complained that they are not being recognised by people and hence to promote those thithis, Lord was born in those 2 thithis.
But here too i have a doubt..Even after Lord Rama and Krishna were born in Navami and Ashtami respectively, people do not recognise those thithis. So adiyen was not convinced about that answer. adiyEn is waiting for Swamiji’s answer which i think will be the apt one.
WE DID NOT HEAR THE STORY OF THITHIES GOING TO LORD ETC……LORD RAMA BORN ON NAVAMI, LORD KRISHNA BORN ON ASHTAMI. THERE IS A PURPOSE BEHIND CHOOSING THOSE DATES BY THEM.
1) LORD RAMA, A PU:RNA MA:NAVA AVATHA:RAM. HE NEVER SAID THAT HE WAS GOD. INSPITE OF DEVATHAS SAYING SO, HE DENIED THAT. THAT PU:RNATHWAM IS SHOWN BY THITTHI ” 9 “. NINE AS EVERYBODY KNOWS, IS A PU:RNA SAMKHYA.
INDESTRUCTIBLE NUMBER IT IS. MANUSHYA SHOULD LIVE LIKE THAT IN THE HISTORY, BY PRACTISING HUMANE QUALITIES, LIKE THAT OF LORD RAMA.
2) LORD KRISHNA, IS THE INCORNATION OF LORD HIMSELF DIRECTLY ON THIS EARTH. HE IS NOT A MAN LIKE SRI RAMA. WHILE LOOKING AT LORD KRISHNA, ONE SHOULD NOT THINIK OF MAN AT ALL. HE IS GOD-HIMSELF. ACCORDING TO THE
VEDAS, GOD WILL BE REVEALED THOUGH A MANTHRA THAT IS ” 8 ” SYLLABLES, CALLED ASHTA:KSHARI MAHA MANTHRA. THAT IS WHY HE CHOSE TO BE THE EIGHTTH BORN TO DE:VAKI DE:VI, AND 8TH THITTHI ALSO.
ACCORDING TO THE JYOTHISHA, THOSE ARE NOT BE TAKEN AS GOOD DAYS TO START SOME NEW ACTIVITY AND THAT IS SA;STHRA, WHICH NEED TO BE OBSERVED. BECAUSE SA:STHRA IS ALSO THE ORDINACE OF GOD-HIMSELF. HENSE, FOLLOWING THAT IS RESPECTING HIM ONLY.
