Our sastras ordain us to offer some part of the harvest to the Lord. This practice has been mentioned in Srimad Ramayana too. Such action blesses us with prosperity. It removes all the navagraha doshas and infuses positivity in our lives.
This old age ritual was revived in Divya Saketham today ie. on Kanuma.
Containers were arranged in front of the Lord. Devotees brought the new harvest and offered it to the lord. Various slokas were recited from the scriptures and special harathis were offered to the Lord. HH Sri Devanattha Jeeyar Swamiji came a discourse explaining the significance of Sankranthi. The event concluded with thirttha and prasada goshti.
