Krishna Pushkarams start on August 12

Tue, Jul 19, 2016, 05:33 PM
Krishna Pushkarams will begin in Telangana at the sunrise of August 12. This is according to the advice of the Commissioner of Endowments given to the Telangana government. A majority of the pandits are of the view that August 12 is the date for the start of the pushkarams.

The Pushkaram are observed for a period of 12 days from the time of entry of Jupiter into Virgo (Kanya rasi). Pushkaram has been an age-old practice in southern states Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Telangana.

The pushkarams occur once in 12 years for the major rivers.

A controversy has arisen over the Krishna Pushkarams in vijayawada where there is a confluence of the Godavari waters in the krishna under the Pattiseema project. As a result the Krishna water mixes with the Godavari waters. So it is not strictly Krishna Pushkarams in Vijayawada.
