Aadiperukku (Pathinettam perukku)/ How do we celebrate Aadiperukku?
AadiPerukku falls on 2nd or 3rd of August every year. Hence “Padinettam perukku” – Padinettu signifies eighteen, and Perukku denotes rising. This festival is observed predominately by women in Tamil Nadu. The Aadiperukku, as a water-ritual, celebrated by women is said to honour Nature. In this auspicious day, Goddess Parvathi Devi is worshipped by offer of different rice dishes. Offerings of flowers, Akshata and rice offerings are done into sacred rivers like Cauveri. As per Purana, Parvathi devi meditated upon Lord Siva to see the divine vision and Lord Siva appeared as Shanka-Naraya swami. The avatar of Shri Bhooma devi also is believed to have taken place during this month.
Usually the water will be released from the reservoirs well before the start of Adi perukku, the water will be available in all the rivers and branches. People take holy dip in the water and they perform the poojas at the bathing ghats along the river. After the pooja, they will have the ‘Kalandha Sadham’ (Variety rices) along with the family in the river bank.
This time Aadiperukku falls on 3rd of August.
