Puttaandu Saarvari 5122 Special Edition

Putthaandu songs recorded by the MTTF for the Tamizh Putthaandu 5122.

The Mauritius Tamil Temples Federation is pleased to publish the official Tamil Calendar for the forthcoming Veeriyezhal (Sarvari) Aandu 5122.

MESSAGE POUR LE TAMIZHE PUTTAANDU
(VARUSHA PIRAPPU) 5122

Alors que le monde vit une crise sans précédent pour les générations vivantes, les Tamouls du monde entier se rappelleront, néanmoins, que le 14 Avril prochain marquera le début de l’année 5122 du calendrier tamoul, VEERIYEZHAL AANDU (SAARVARI AANDU).


Une fois n’est pas coutume, mais force est de constater que cette année il n’y aura rien à célébrer vu les inconvénients et, surtout, les souffrances causées par ce fléau qui frappe indistinctement mettant même les grands de ce monde à genoux et démontre les limites de l’être humain à faire face à certaines situations dont nous sommes, souvent, nous-mêmes les responsables.

KUANTAN: Unlike in previous years, the Tamil New Year, or Puthandu, is being celebrated in a muted way today due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the Movement Control Order (MCO).

Instead of worshippers in colourful attire making early morning visits to temples, celebrations are being held in isolation, at homes nationwide.

Malaysia Hindu Sangam president Datuk RS Mohan Shan said the Tamil community should see the MCO as a blessing in disguise, as it affords an opportunity for them to be at home with their families and loved ones.

“This year is special, as family members have the opportunity to gather under one roof, prepare and observe prayers, before savouring home-cooked vegetarian meals.

“Maybe, in previous years, some might have been busy at work or did not have the chance to celebrate with their family members, as this new year is not a public holiday.

“And since temples are closed, it is best that everyone performs their prayers at home and pray for an end to Covid-19, and that the new year will be a blessing," he said when contacted.

Meanwhile, the management of the Sri Sithi Vinayagar Temple in Petaling Jaya livestreamed its new year prayers on Facebook this morning.

As of 10am, some 600 viewers were following the page as priests conducted prayers in front of statues of deities.

The Tamil New Year, or Varisha Piruppu, or Puthandu, marks the first day of the first month – Chittirai – in the Tamil calendar.

Besides the Tamil New Year, Vishu for the Malayalees and Vaisakhi for the Sikhs are also celebrated today.

Meawhile, Kuantan Sri Mariamman temple president T. Separamaniam said due to the MCO, there will be no special new year poojas (prayers) conducted at the temple.

He said the temple has also called off the annual 12-day Chitra Pournami festival which was scheduled to begin on April 28.

“Due to Covid-19, there will be no prayers related to Chitra Purnami this year and we pray that with God's blessing, the prayers will be grandly celebrated next year," he said.

Chitra Pournami, or Chitirai Purnima, is a Tamil festival observed on the poornima day (full moon day) in the Tamil month of Chitirai .

Kolkata Priests Feel the Pinch as Income Dries up Amid Lockdown
KOLKATA, INDIA, April 12, 2020 (Indian Express): The nationwide lockdown imposed on March 25 to contain the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has left Hindu priests in the city in distress as their earnings have dried up. In normal times, they earn a relatively significant amount of money in March and April, when several religious festivals and weddings are held. However, because of the pandemic, temples have closed, rituals usually organized at home have been cancelled and weddings scheduled in April have been indefinitely postponed.
How Technology and Faith are Helping Hindus in Britain Through Covid-19
UNITED KINGDOM, April 7, 2020 (The Tablet): The social and spiritual connection that members of BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha in the UK, headquartered at its Neasden Temple in London, enjoyed at mandirs (Hindu temples) and centers across the country, is not possible in the same manner as it was previously. The temples provide a sense of belonging for many worshippers -- a place where they can interact with others -- a source of unparalleled spiritual strength and connection with God. However, as part of the collective responsibility to reduce the spread of the global pandemic, BAPS mandirs and centers across the UK closed on 13 March.
