  • Procedure to follow on the day of Ratha Saptami :

    Helpful Tips on Sanatana Dharma / Hindu Principles - 62
    It is traditional to take bath with 7 Arka leaves (called Erukku in tamil, Jilledu in Telugu, Ekka in Kannada, and Bowstring hemp in English) on the body. The placement is 1 leaf on the head, two on the shoulders (one on each shoulder), two on the knees, and two on the feet, and then pouring water on oneself. You should keep some akshada (raw rice grains mixed with turmeric) on the leaves while placing them on your body and then take the bath.

    Mantra to be recited called Snana mantra :

    "Om Yadyadjanma krutham paapam mayaa saptaasu janmasu
    Thanme Rhogancha Sokancha maakari hantu Saptamii"
    Yetatjanmakrutham paapam yathaa janmaantaraarjitam
    Mano Vaak kaayajam yaccha gnaathaaghnaathancha yath punah"
    Iti saptavidham paapam snaanam ME saptha SapthakE
    Saptavyaadhi samaayuktham hara maakari Sapthami"

    (This is basically a prayer that declares how sins accrue to us and follow us over births, and request the Saptami thithi Deity (Sun God and the thithi Nithya Devi who is subtly invoked in this mantra) to absolve us of all the sins, and hence the karmic effects of those like diseases and sorrow in life). Those who are unable to follow the transliteration of this mantra may just pray for removal of sins asking for pardon for all sins committed knowingly/ unknowingly, and hence relief from all troubles in life.

    At the end of this ritual bath, we should offer "Arghyam" to Sun God and Saptami Devi with the following mantra called Soorya Arghya Mantra :

    "Saptha Sapthi vaha preetha Saptha Lokha pradeepana
    Sapthamii sahito Deva gruhaanaarghyam Diwaakara"

    (offer pure water three times facing the Sun in the morning saying this mantra).

    Kooshmaanda Daana : On this day, we have to give daana of Kooshmaanda (pumpkin). By giving the kooshmandadana, we will be free from any garbha dosha and will have santaanaphala.

    Gupta Kooshmanda daana : It is a powerful dhaana that can be done today (gemstones - especially Ruby, gold, and silver are concealed inside a pumpkin and donated to a vedic Brahmin. You should not reveal what/ how much is concealed inside the pumpkin to them. That is why it is called Gupta Dhaana! It is difficult to get a good Brahmin to accept this daana because this is a powerful remedy that involves "transfer of karma from the giver to the receiver"; no amount of money in the world will impel a vedic brahmin to accept this! On the other hand, gifting it to a person who is just a brahmin by birth but without vedic knowledge or ritual purity, is useless; so, if you are suffering from great troubles, request an elderly or mature vedantic brahmin to accept the charity to alleviate your pains. They may consent to this out of piety, and then use that amount for charitable purposes like yagnas, temple renovation, feeding poor, etc..
