Celebrating Chitra gupta's birthday-Chitra Pournami

Every human being's good & bad deeds are accounted in the heaven.This is done by the God of  Death Yama.He found the work load increasing due to the growing population.One day ,ashta dighbalar( in charge of eight directions)went to Mount  Kailas to see Lord Siva.God Siva observed that all of them happy except Yama.Then God Siva asked Yama why he was in a sad mood.He complained to Him that he was unable to handle  the accounting work of human beings & wanted to be assisted by someone who should be reliable & keep the records secretly with out disclosing to any one.God Siva agreed to this & told him  soon he will be provided  a suitable assistant.He immediately asked God Brahma the creator to do the needful to Yama.Brahma after certain thinking felt that only Surya Deva could provide such a clever person to assist Yama.He created rainbow before Sun & It became  a beautiful lady &They got married.Soon  a son was born to them with an everlasting accounting leaf (book) & a special pen in the Tamil month of Chithirai ,in the star of Chithirai & on a full moon day(சித்திரா பௌர்ணமி) . 
Photos  given below were from                                                            
As he was born in  in the  star of Chitirai  he is called Chitra putran. Gupta means one who keeps the secrets , So he is called Chitra Guptan.Surya made his  younger son  read all veda sastras  thoroughly.After learning vedas to  test his power gained from vedas,he started creating living beings.This came to the knowledge of God Brahma who in turn brought it to the notice of Surya Deva.Then Surya advised his son to stop creating work.He got him married & sent to his elder son Yama Dharma  to assist him.Yama Dharma gave his younger brother recording of human' s good deeds  & sins ,out of which Yama Dharma would act.                                It is also said that  he is born from a cow.On  Chitra Pournami day it is said that he is visiting every  human being' s house in the earth.So  on that day people observe vradha &  worship him.He is offered   a cooling juice like liquid called " panagam" in Tamil. He is also offered tender co co nut, a palm leaf fan (விசிறி), mango,pulses,rice pongal,(உப்பு  சேர்க்காத பொங்கல்).He is the  Devata for planet Kedhu.worshiping Chitra Gupta would ward of kedhu dhosha in one's horoscope.Worsshiping Vinayaka also ward of this dosha.Chitra Gupta got this post after doing penance towards Lord Siva & got this boon.

    1. Thank you Shankar Saranya.I have posted it to make it public & many may not be aware of such a vradha & worshiping of Chitra Gupta on full moon day of Tamil month Chitirai.My mother followed it & my mother in law also followed it in their family.Celebrating Margazhi Thiruvadhirai(For Lord Nataraja),Vaikunda Ekadasi &Thuvadasi,Vinayaka ,Chadurthi,Navarathri,Sivarathri,Deepavali ,Pongal & Veettu deivam(Sumangali pooja- This is most important for family welfare & Prosperity- This is for Sumangali ladies of their family who have done lot of hard work ,observing vradha,taking care of their children elderly, people, husband &they guide the family till their last breathe.So it is essential that we thank them by doing a pooja during pongal time for them. This is in addition to Family deity( Kula deivam) worship.If we neglect this,our children would be affected.We would also suffer.Don.t worry about manthras.Manicka vasagar told Thiruvasagam in Tamil & Lord Nataraja wrote it.Told by a devotee(man) & recorded by God.Shiva is so much happy to hear Tamil songs(devaram).You have the Interest(sraddha) & from young age onward, if we have this devotional culture,certainly your family as whole would develop.You can make certain options in following the festivals with your parents guidance.Wife & myself tradionally following Saiva religious path.I 'll write about the Chitra gupta vradha & add some maakkolam pictures with videos.
