Lord Shiva’s transformative energy to absolve sins, rejuvenate mind and body, and enjoy a prosperous life is abundantly available during the Tamil month of Karthigai (mid–November to mid–December). According to the scriptures, during this sacred month, Shiva revealed himself as infinite fire. Planet Moon (known as Soma in Sanskrit), who rules Monday, has a special connection with Shiva, also known as Someshwara (the one who wears the crescent Moon on his matted hair). Mondays are always very auspicious for Shiva, and Karthigai Somavaram refers to the four most special Mondays of the year that fall in the month of Karthigai.

ஓரொரு கால் எம்பெருமான் என்றென்றேநம்பெருமான் சீரொருகால் வாய் ஓவாள்சித்தம் களிகூர நீரொருகால் ஓவாநெடுந்தாரை கண்பனிப்ப பாரொருகால் வந்துஅணையாள் விண்ணோரைத் தான் பணியாள்பேரரையற்கு இங்ஙனே பித்தொருவர் ஆமாறும்ஆரொருவர் இவ்வண்ணம் ஆட்கொள்ளும் வித்தகர் தாள்வார் உருவப் பூண்முலையீர் வாயார நாம்பாடிஏர் உருவப்பூம்புனல் பாய்ந்தாடலோர் எம்பாவாய்.

Now and then she utters, "My Lord", thus her mouth never relent in the praise of the glory of Our Lord ! With the mind rejoicing, never stopping long streams of tears wetting the eye, not even once coming to this world, not bowing down to the celestial powers, to the Emperor one becomes mad like this. One who takes slaves like this, that Proficient's foot, Oh girls of ornated breasts, let us sing and swim in the floral stream.


Manikkavachagar’s work ‘Thiruvempavai’, a collection of twenty hymns, in which he has imagined himself as a woman following the ‘Paavai Nonbu’, praising Lord Shiva.

Thiruvempavai songs are part of an ancient tradition amongst unmarried young girls, where they would light lamps in the early mornings of Margazhi, and sing songs in praise of Lord Shiva. The 20 stanzas of Thrivempavai are recited everyday. It is believed that such rituals would bring prosperity and a suitable husband to the girls.

The Thiruvadhirai is one of the eight significant “Vratas” dedicated to Lord Shiva. Thiruvaadhirai is also considered to be the nakshaththram (birth star) of Lord Natarajar and is the longest night of the year. The word “Thiruvathirai” implies a ‘sacred big wave’ that was used during the creation of the universe by Lord Shiva.
