Karadaiyan Nombu, Mantras to chant

Here are the mantras to chant on Karadaiyan Nombu – Mantras to chant while wearing sacred thread (Moonjal Saradu muhurtham). Generally prayers are offered to Goddess Gauri Devi and women meditate on Goddess Savithri and wear a yellow thread round their neck.

In 2020, Karadaiyan Nombu date is March 14.

While wearing the Moonjal Saradu, women chant the following sloka…

Throram Krishhnami subhake saharitham
Dharami aham bharthu
Ayushya Sidhartham supreethabhava sarvadha

The following is Mantram is in Tamil…

Urukaddha Venneyum oradhayam naan nootren
Orukkalum en kanavar ennai vittu pririyadhirukka vendum

 The  Karadayan Nolumbu(nombu)  commemorating    the epic story  of Savithri   regaining her husband from Lord Yama   is celebrated   at the last few minutes before the end of Masi(Kumbam) month  and before  the beginning  of  the month of Panguni(Meenam) .Normally   all  unmarried ladies  and married  ladies  with husbands  alive(sumangali)   offer   sweet as as well as  salt  Adai (made of rice harvested in the Kar season-May june ) , butter, banana  fruit   along with Vettilai  Pakku   to the Goddess and a yellow thread   which is offered    in the pooja   is tied by themselves or their mother in case of Unmarried ladies    and tied by the husband in case of Sumangailis   At that time they chant

Dhram gruhnami subhage sahardhraam
Dharami aham bharthu
Ayushya Sidhartham supreethabhava sarvadha

I am taking the thread,Oh pleasant goddess, with affection,

And I am wearing it for long life span of my husband.

Become always pleased with me.

The following Tamil chant is also chanted

Urukaadha Venneyum oradaiyam naan nootren
Orukkalum en kanavar ennai vittu pririyadhirukka vendum

“உருகாத வெண்ணெயும், ஓர் அடையும் நோற்று உனக்குநான் வைத்தேன், எந்நாளும் என் கணவர் எனை விட்டு நீங்காத அருள்தருவாய்” என்று  அம்மனை நோக்கி வேண்டி நமஸ்கரிக்கவும்.

(I have offered  you unmelted butter and One Adai, Please bless me so that my husband  will live with me forever)

Most of those who observe the Nombu do not take food from morning till they do the pooja.

It is a practice in certain homes   to  worship goddess Kamakshi  by calling a priest . Instead  you can also  chant the following Sankalpam and perform the Pooja yourselves

Mama   deerga    saumanglya   avapthyartham  , mama bhartheu   anyonya  preethi ,

Abhivrudhyartham  , Aviyogartham    Sri Kamakshi poojaam karishye

Translation

For  getting the status of Sumangali   for a very long time ,

For increase  of mutual love between me and my husband

For never being ever getting parted with him ,

I am doing the worship of  Goddess  Kamakshi.

And chant the  Dhyanam

Ekambara  nadha   dayithaam   kamakshim  ,

BHuvaneswarim  dhyayami  hrudaye,

DEvim vanchithartha  pradhayinum

Translation

I  meditate  on the wife of Elambara Nadha,

Yamashtakam

Savithri Uvacha:-

Savithri said:-

1.Thapasaa Dharma Rajaya , pushkare  Bhaskare  puraa,

Dharmasam yam sutham prapa Dharmarajam namamyaham.

In the olden times Sun God got Yamuna  and Dharma Raja as children,

And the Son who is the follower of Dharma , was named as king of dharma.

2.Samathaa sarva bhootheshu yasya sarvasya sakshina,

Atho yan nama samanam  ithi tham pranamamyaham.

He  treated every living being as equal and is the witness  of everything,

And thus he was equal to his name  and I salute  him.

3.Yenaa anthascha krutho , viswe sarveshaam jeevinaam param,

Karmo anuroopa kalena , tham kruthantham namamyaham.

He  made  all beings  of the world   die ,

At the proper  time  and I salute him who puts an end.

4.Bbarthi dandam dandachyaa , paapinaam shudhi hethave,

Namami tham Danda dharam , ya saastha sarva karmanam.

He    gave  punishment using his scepter  to the sinners to make them pure,

I salute he who holds the scepter, who is the teacher of all duties.

5.Viswe ya  kavalayathyeva sarvayuschapi santhatham,

Atheeva durnirvarya  cha tham kaalam pranamamyaham.

Since he was swallowing  the world  and he always takes  away all souls,

At highly exceptional circumstances and I salute that Kala.

6.Thapaswi Vaishnavo dharmo , samyami vijithendriya,

Jeevinaam  karma phaladham  tham Yamam pranamamyaham.

An ascetic following the Vaishnava Dharma, one who has won over his senses,

And one who awards the results of Karma to beings is Yama and I salute him.

7.Swa athmaramascha sarvagno mithram punyakruthaam bhaveth,

Paapinam klesadham yasya , puthro mithro namamyaham.

Rejoicing in  his own self , one who knows all , one who is a friend of those  who do good deeds,

And one who troubles sinners  is the son of Sun God and I salute him.

8.Yajjanma Brahmaano vamse jwalantham Brahma thejasaa,

Yo dhyayathi Param brahma Brahma vamsam namamyaham.

He took birth in the clan of Brahma and shined with effulgence of Brahmana,

And he meditates on the divine Brahmam, and I salute the clan of Brahma.

Phala Sruthi

9.Ithyukthwaa  saa cha  Savithri prananama Yamam Mune,

Yamasthaam Vishnu Bhajanam karmapakam uvacha ha.

Oh sage after saying this Savithri saluted that Yama,

And Yama heard  her praise of Lord Vishnu  due to her ripening of her JKarma.

10.Idham Yamastakam nithyam prathar uthaya  padeth,

Yamath thasya bhayam Nasthi  sarva paapath pramuchyathe.

If this octet on Yama is read daily as soon as one gets up in the morning,

He will have no fear of Yama and would get rid of all his sins.

11.Maha Paapi yathi paden nithyam BHakthyaa cha Narada,

Yama karothi tham shudham kaya vyuhena nischitham.

Oh  Narada, if a great sinner reads it daily with devotion,

Yama will make him pure from at the time of his soul seperatring from body.

Ithi Sri Brahma Vaivartha Maha purane prakruthi khande Savithri krutha Sri yamashtakam sampoornam.

Thus ends the octet on Yama composed by Savithri which occurs in the first chapter of Brahma Vaivartha  Maha Purana.
