Today post in Kannada prabha Kannada Daily about ಚೂಡಿ ಪೂಜೆ by ಚಿತ್ರಾ ಸಿ.ಆರ್.

ಚೂಡಿ ಪೂಜೆ
First Published: 01 Sep 2013 02:00:00 AM IST

ದಕ್ಷಿಣ ಕರಾವಳಿ ಹಾಗೂ ಕೇರಳದ ಕೊಂಕಣಿ ಭಾಷಿಗರಲ್ಲಿ ಶ್ರಾವಣ ಮಾಸದಲ್ಲಿ ಚೂಡಿ ಪೂಜೆ ಎಂಬ ವಿಶಿಷ್ಟ ಆಚರಣೆ ಇದೆ. ಮುಖ್ಯವಾಗಿ ಗೌಡ ಸಾರಸ್ವತ ಬ್ರಾಹ್ಮಣ, ಮರಾಠಿ ಬ್ರಾಹ್ಮಣರು ಹಾಗೂ ಕೇರಳದ ಕೊಂಕಣಿ ಭಾಷಿಕ ಪ್ರದೇಶಗಳ ವಿವಾಹಿತೆಯರು ಆಚರಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ.
ರಕ್ಕಸ ದೊರೆ ಜಲಂಧರನ ಪತ್ನಿ ವೃಂದಾ ಮಹಾನ್ ಪತಿವ್ರತೆ, ವಿಷ್ಣುವಿನ ಪರಮಭಕ್ತೆ ಕೂಡ. ರಕ್ಕಸ ಜಲಂಧರನಿಂದ ದೇವತೆಗಳನ್ನು ರಕ್ಷಿಸಲು ವಿಷ್ಣು ಅವಕಾಶಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಕಾಯುತ್ತಿರುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಜಲಂಧರ ಸಾಯಬೇಕಾದರೆ ವೃಂದಾಳ ಪಾತಿವ್ರತ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಧಕ್ಕೆಯಾಗಬೇಕು. ಜಲಂಧರ ಯುದ್ಧಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋದ ಸಂದರ್ಭ ಉಪಯೋಗಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವ ವಿಷ್ಣು ಜಲಂಧರನ ವೇಷದಲ್ಲಿ ವೃಂದಾಳ ಬಳಿ ಬರುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಇದನ್ನು ತಿಳಿಯದ ವೃಂದಾ ವಿಷ್ಣುವನ್ನು ತನ್ನ ಗಂಡನೆಂದೇ ತಿಳಿದು ಆತನೊಂದಿಗೆ ಕೂಡುತ್ತಾಳೆ. ಇತ್ತ ಯುದ್ಧಭೂಮಿಗೆ ಹೋಗಿದ್ದ ಜಲಂಧರ ಮರಣ ಹೊಂದುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಪತಿಯ ಸಾವಿನ ಕಾರಣ ಅರಿತ ವೃಂದಾ ತುಂಬಾ ದುಃಖಿತಳಾಗಿ ತನ್ನ ಆರಾಧ್ಯದೈವ ವಿಷ್ಣುವನ್ನು ಸ್ಮರಿಸಿ ತನ್ನನ್ನು ಮತ್ತೆ ಪವಿತ್ರಳನ್ನಾಗಿ ಮಾಡುವಂತೆ ಬೇಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾಳೆ. ಆಗ ವಿಷ್ಣು ಶ್ರಾವಣ ಮಾಸದಲ್ಲಿ 11 ವಿಧದ ಹೂವುಗಳನ್ನು ನಾರಿನಿಂದ ಕಟ್ಟಿ ತುಳಸಿಗೆ ಅರ್ಪಿಸಿ ತುಳಸಿ ದೇವಿಯನ್ನು ಪೂಜಿಸುವಂತೆ ಸಲಹೆ ನೀಡುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಅದರಂತೆ ವೃಂದಾ ತುಳಸಿದೇವಿಯನ್ನು ಪೂಜಿಸಿ ಪವಿತ್ರಳಾಗುತ್ತಾಳೆ. ಇದು ಚೂಡಿಪೂಜೆ ಹಿಂದಿನ ಕತೆ.
ಪುರಾಣದಲ್ಲಿ ಉಲ್ಲೇಖಗೊಂಡಿರುವಂತೆ ಹನ್ನೊಂದು ಹೂವು ಈಗ ಲಭ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಇರುವುದರಿಂದ ಮಹಿಳೆಯರು ಸ್ಥಳೀಯವಾಗಿ ಸಿಗುವ ನಾಲ್ಕರಿಂದ ಐದು ವಿವಿಧ ಹೂವು ಹಾಗೂ ಗರಿಕೆ ಬಳಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಕೆಂಪು ಹಾಗೂ ಹಳದಿ ಬಣ್ಣಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಸಿಗುವ ರತ್ನಗಂಧಿ, ಶಂಖಪುಷ್ಪ, ಗೌರಿಪುಷ್ಪ, ಗರಿಕೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಇನ್ನಿತರ ಹೂಗಳನ್ನೆಲ್ಲ ಸೇರಿಸಿ ನಾರಿನಿಂದ ಕಟ್ಟಿದ ಹೂಗಳ ಗುಚ್ಚವನ್ನೇ 'ಚೂಡಿ' ಎನ್ನಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಇಂಥ 9 ಗುಚ್ಛ ತಯಾರಿಸಿ ಮನೆಯ ಹಾಗೂ ನೆರೆಯ ಮಹಿಳೆಯರ ಜತೆ ವಿನಿಮಯ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾರೆ.
ತುಳಸಿಕಟ್ಟೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಹೊಸ್ತಿಲನ್ನು ಶುಚಿಗೊಳಿಸಿ ರಂಗೋಲಿ, ಹೂಗಳಿಂದ ಅಲಂಕರಿಸಿ ಆರತಿ ಮಾಡುವುದರೊಂದಿಗೆ ಪೂಜೆ ಆರಂಭಗೊಳ್ಳತ್ತದೆ. ಮನೆಯ ಮಹಿಳೆಯರು ತುಳಸಿ ಕಟ್ಟೆ ಮುಂದೆ ಚೂಡಿಯನ್ನಿಟ್ಟು ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಪೂಜೆ ಸಲ್ಲಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಅಂತಿಮವಾಗಿ ದೇವರಕೋಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಸಮೂಹ ಪ್ರಾರ್ಥನೆ ನೆರವೇರಿಸಿ ಚೂಡಿಯನ್ನು ತಲೆಗೆ ಮುಡಿದುಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಶ್ರಾವಣ ಮಾಸದ ಪ್ರತಿ ಶುಕ್ರವಾರ ಹಾಗೂ ಭಾನುವಾರ ಈ ಚೂಡಿ ಪೂಜೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಾರೆ. ನವ ವಿವಾಹಿತೆಯರು ಮೊದಲು ಗಂಡನ ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಚೂಡಿ ಪೂಜೆ ಮಾಡಿ ಬಳಿಕ ತವರು ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪೂಜೆ ನೆರವೇರಿಸುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಈ ಪೂಜೆ ಮಾಡಿದರೆ ವಿವಾಹಿತ ಮಹಿಳೆಯರಿಗೆ ಸಂಪೂರ್ಣ ಪುಣ್ಯ ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ ಎಂಬ ನಂಬಿಕೆ.

ಕೆಲಸಾ ಕೆಲಸಾ ಕೆಲಸಾ is this the only destination that v have to achieve

Is employment is the final Destiny of Life.

Earning 6 digit Salary is the utmost goal of the life

There is no other ways to achieve our goal

After you complete certain Age in My Case its 23 Years u will get to know  who are all real cousins and friends

One after the other so called Relative try to humiliate us by stating our parents  "ನನ್ನ ಮಗನ ಗೆ ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲಸಾ ಸಿಕ್ತು ಅವನಿಗೆ ಇಸ್ತ್  ಸಂಬಳ ನಿಮ್ ಮಗನಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲಿ ಕೆಲಸ ಸಿಕಿದೆ ಇನ್ ಎಸ್ಟ್ ವರ್ಷ ಓದ್ತನಂತೆ "

Are  these are the only things in life to make others happy and to lead our life to wins and fancies of others 

These are all cheap things to lead our life only because other does that we have to do like that then where is the actual identity u r searching in ur child. It will be same old rubber stamp copy paste things.

Ya I know we have to earn. But another thing is that we have work based on our willingness and not because of other pressure.

If they go on pressurise us like this then one day they have to see good old workaholic days.

Getting job in a reputed company and earning salary is not only the criteria in life their r so many other things which we have to develop our self first v have to lead our life is a respectable way then have to work towards satisfaction.

Till 25 Years of Age v have all rights to fight against these Evil thing of Pressurise from the neighbours and so called relatives and cousins. So dont care about other sayings. Just have faith on God Concentrate on u r Goal and Achieve it. Then see the changes. U will change u r personality and as well as will grow up as a Good Human Being.

Surnames of GSB and its origin


The Goud saraswat Brahmins wherever they migrated mingled with the local people, but kept their identity by their Surnames even today. The most popular surname among GSBs is Kamath Those in agriculture were called Kamathi. Mathi means soil and Kama is work, that is working in soil ( Kama + Mathi). Later this became Kamath.

The surnames of GSBs are mainly two types.

1. The village names of Gomantak where they settled originally or migrated. This practice is prevalent among Rajapur saraswats. They have surnames like Salkar, Asgaonkar, Bandivadekar, Madkaikar, Borkar, Sakhalkar, Sawerdekar, Haldwanekar, Chimbalkar, Navelkar, Marathe, Lotlikar, Salwankar, Karlekar, Burake, Bhagav,Bhatkar, Tendulkar, Patkar, Juvale, Dhonde, Shinkar, Shendre, Shetye, Bokade, Takur, Gawade, Potkar, Askekar, Shenai, Gavalkar, Shembekar, Lanjolkar etc. which are the original local village names of Gomantak. The word 'Kar" means "From" or citizen of. Thus kakodkar means person from village kakod. Kar is also a surname of viswabrahmins of bengal. This enabled one to identify the profession and the domicile.

2.

  1. Surnames indicating the profession adopted by the Saraswats like Pai, Purohit, Nayak etc.
  • Shenoy- Originally for the Shenvis in Goa. Since most of them took up Administrative jobs they were called Shanbhags (clerks) which later became Shenoy.
  • Pai- Pai in Konkani language means foot or leg. The common person who had not amassed wealth or power was known as Pai.Their job was menial in maintaining ledgers and doing odd jobs. The Pai who was mainly ledger keepers.
  • Kamat - Those in agriculture were called Kamathi. Mathi means soil and Kama is work, that is working in soil ( Kama + Mathi). Later this became Kamat.
  • Keni, Kini- Those who cultivated herbs were Kinvis, presently called Kini or Keni.
  • Vaidya- Those who prepared the concoction was prepared and dispensed it
  • Hegde- The animals required for tilling, transportation and other works were under Haya- Gade (actually Horse tenderer), modernized to Hegde.
  • Nayak, Rao- Those worked as Army commandants were called Nayaks. Some Nayaks who were honoured by the King with titles like Ravubahadur adopted Rao as their Surname
  • Baliga - The daily requirements of every family for survival, presentations, etc. were the responsibility of the Ballo. There is another theory that the foot soldier with a spear was called Ballo. The soldier Ballo (Baliga) was under the command of Nayak.
  • Prabhu - Feudal lords called themselves Prabhu. He lived in a palatial home called mahal, and the caretaker was known as Mahalyar, presently modernized to Mallya.
  • AcharyaBhat and Vadhyar- The poojas in the big temple and its rituals were under Acharya, and in small temples conducted by Bhat. Every family had exclusive priest to perform the rites, and he was the family Purohit and was called Vadhyar.
  • Mahajan- The temples were administered by Mahajans
  • Bhandarkar- Stores and godown keepers were called Bhandari or Bhandarkar.
  • Nadkarni, Kulkarni- A person maintaining statistics was called Karni. Land was called Nadu, and the person maintaining land records was known as Nadkarni, and Kulkarni maintained census, and social register.
  • Bhakta - Doing odd jobs in temples and poojas.
In Karnataka, the village of refuge was used as a prefix to call oneself Padbidri Mohandas Prabhu, or Kinnigoli Ramanath Kamath. The kerala civilization induced the name of the house or the exact area rather than the village, and in some places, the present profession was also added to the name. So we have today, Thayyil Muralidhar Kamath (Thayyil means tailoring house), or Kannaparambil Gopalakrishna Pai (Parambil means garden or farm belonging to kannan).
Today the name has no links with the profession. However the GSBs still retain their Surnames down the generations.[4][5]
