Puratasi Masam is of great importance, as it is believed that Lord Venkateswara (Balaji) appeared on the earth in this month. This month is also special for Sun and Sani worship. Visiting Paruthiyur Perumal is considered very auspicious for those horoscopes with sun-shani mutual aspects. During the nine nights and ten days of Puratasi Sharada Navaratri, all forms of female divinities are worshiped.
