Upcoming Karthigai Vrata is on April 27, Thursday, 2017.
Following are the frequently asked questions about Karthigai and its significance.
Karthigai is a star among 27 stars and falls on the day when the Moon crosses the Karthigai constellation of six stars once in a month as per lunar calendar.
Karthigai is the star auspicious for the worship of Lord Muruga as it is only Karthigai nymphs who reared him. There are special prayers and abhishekams in temples in the worship of Lord Muruga on the day.
Lord Muruga was born of the third eye of Lord Shiva and was born as six babies. These six babies were brought up by the six Karthigai nymphs and later, Muruga was transformed into a boy with six faces by his mother, Goddess Parvathi.
