Purattasi is the sixth month of the Tamil calendar, which falls between mid-Sep to mid-Oct every year. This month is one of the auspicious months and is dedicated to Lord Venkateswara (form of Lord Vishnu). The month is named after the star(s) on the Full Moon day Poorattadhi (Purva Phalguni) or Uttrattadhi (Uttra Phalguni). According to sacred texts, Lord vishnu descended to the Earth plane in the form of Venkateswara during the month of Purattasi, to preserve the universe at the end of Kali Yuga.

Fasting for Lord Venkateswara by abstaining from non-vegetarian food, consuming alcohol, smoking and practicing celibacy can elevate your inner self and help attain the lotus feet of the Lord. Scientifically, fasting detoxifies your body and offers peace to your body, mind and soul. Hence, fasting for the divine Lord must not be treated as a burden and is to be followed with true devotion and wholeheartedness, which shall give you immense benefits.

vishnu devotees regard Purattasi month as the ideal period to worship Lord vishnu and gather at vishnu temples for grand rituals and ceremonies. Special Poojas and rituals are offered to Lord Venkateswara and there exists a custom of hoisting flags with Garuda emblem (divine eagle vehicle of Vishnu) at temples.
