Pavithra Utsavam is derived from the combination of two words “Pavithra” (Holy) and “Utsavam” (Festival).
Pavithrothsavam is celebrated for the purpose of rectifying any omissions on the “Aagama” injunction in the matter of conducting festivals and poojas during the entire year. The utsavam is celebrated to redeem from the failure to follow the prescribed rules.
