🌹 What to do on Makar Sankranti..?
🌹 Makar Sankranti – 15 January 2023
🔸 Punyakal: From sunrise to sunset
🌹 Makar Sankranti or Uttarayan is a festival of charity. Charity, charity, chanting and penance done on this day gives infinite results.
🌹 On this day food donation, like sesame and jaggery should be donated to the poor. In this, sesame or sesame laddoos or food made from sesame should be donated. Many people also donate money.
🌹 The one who uses sesame seeds in these six ways in Makar Sankranti gets the desired fruit in this world and the other world – boiling of sesame seeds, bathing with sesame water, arghya with sesame water, sesame home, sesame donation and sesame food. But keep in mind – eating things made of sesame and its oil is prohibited at night.
🌹 Chanting these names of Lord Suryanarayan on the day of Uttarayan is especially beneficial.
Om Mitraya Namah. Om Ravaye Namah.
Om Suryaya Namah. Om Bhanve Namah.
Om Khagaya Namah. Om Pushne Namah.
Om Hiranyagarbhaya Namah. Om Marichaye Namah.
Om Adityaya Namah. Om Savitre Namah.
Om Arkay Namah. Om Bhaskaray Namah.
Om Savitri Suryanarayanay Namah.
🌹 Om Hran Hrin Sah Suryaya Namah. Worship Suryanarayan with this mantra, meditate on him and bow down. Suryanarayan will be pleased with this, will give health and also protect from evil.
🌹 If it is not possible to go to the river bank, then take a bath with water mixed with sesame in a water vessel facing east in the bathroom of your house. Along with remembering all the holy rivers and pilgrimages, meditate on Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra and Bhagwan Bhaskar.
