Arulmigu Sree Maha Mariamman Sri Umayambikai udanurai Swarnalingeswarar Thirukoi is located in Kanchipuram in the state of Tamil Nadu is known for Aadi Ammavasai special pujas and rituals.

According to the temples main priest, “One owes a lot to one’s parents and ancestors. Each ancestor is actually present in the person as a genetic characteristic. In karmik terms, one inherits some karma of one’s parents and ancestors and each ancestor is actually present in the person as a karmik predisposition. The latter approach obviously extends to multiple lives and some karmik predisposition is inherited from the ancestors from a past life too, though they may not be related to one in this life.”

In order to free oneself from many karmic predispositions, one should do offering and rituals of the deceased ancestors. This is done for emancipating and satisfaction. It is to be remembered that “Aadi Amavasya” and “Thai Amavasya” are the two Amavasai’s considered most important by the Hindu community. It is to be remembered that the New Moon is the right time for spiritual progress and contemplation.
