TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE : The 15th day of the month of Magha shukla paksha dated 31.01.2018, Wednesday is a total lunar eclipse. In Bharata, on this day, the far eastern states and northeastern states wherein the moonrise occurs at 5.17 p.m., will be the ones to witness the eclipse in its entirety from the onset, progress to the waning.
Sapthami of shukla paksha in the month of Magha is popularly known as Ratha Sapthami. This is a period of transition. It is a day wherein the Sun makes a minor shift in its position. It is also the day of the birth of the Sun. It is on this day that the chill winter ceases and the cozy rays of the Sun begin to percolate across the earth. Since this day invigorates the atmosphere, our ancestors have accorded importance to it.
Under the joint patronage of Paryaya Sri Palimaru Matha, Udupi Jilla Brahmana Parishat and in collaboration with KMC Manipala a free cancer check up camp was organised at Udupi Shri Krishna Matha on 25.11.2018
