Just at the break of dawn and the end of the brahma mahurat (According to the Vedic system this morning period, one and a half hours before sunrise, is called brahma-muhurta and spiritual activities performed at this time have a greater effect than at any other time of the day.) It is at 6:00am, that the Lord gives His first darsana (audience) of the day with a sanctifying Abhishek and Pooja.
Following the Mangal Abhishek is the Kakad Aarti performed at 6:30 am It is at 7:00am that the auspicious Deities Lord Vithal and His consort Goddess Rukumai give their devotees Darshan , in fresh attire, decorated with beautiful, fresh scented flowers and jewelry. Thus the assembled devotees begin their day with the splendid shubh darshan.
As our beloved Bhagavan rightly puts it “Let your whole life be a spiritual song. Believe that God is everywhere at all times, and derive strength, comfort, and joy by singing His glory in His presence”. The most awaited time of the day begins at 5:30 pm when devotees sing bhajans and devotional songs in praise of the Lord.
The devotional singing comes to an end for the day with the offering of the Dhoop Aarti at sunset. The temple closes at 8:00 pm and the Shej Aarti is performed at night marking and end to the day.
