Thila Homam is performed to satisfy the dead souls who have been fallen into ‘Apamrithu’. Not all the souls rest in peace once it leaves body, the one which dies without the fulfillment of their wishes keeps haunting us from generation to generation. We should generally choose pious places to conduct Thila Homam like SethuKarai near Thiruppullani.
Thila Homam is done on Aadi Amavasya days. It is done with ‘Thil’ or ‘Elu’ in the homam. It is done as ‘Prayaschitakarmam’ to get rid of all curses and doshams. Thiruppullani is the best place to weed off Pitru Dosham. The bath in the pious water washes away and absolves us of all our sins.
The Homam will be performed at Sethu Karai which is 10 minutes away from Thirupullani Adi Jagannatha Perumal Temple. Devotees are recommended to come to Thirupullani via Ramanathapuram.
