    An ideal husband is one who can understand his wife's moments of happiness .sadness .worry,fear and other emotions.He will stand by her come what may.The word kannavan meaning husband in Tamil is derived from the word kan.
    During karadayan nonbu women invoke the blessings of Gowri devi to attain such a husband for all seven births.
    Unmarried girls pray for a good husband and married women pray for their husband.s long life.
    savithri was the daughterof the King Asrapathi.When her father asked her who she wished to marry she pointed to Sathyavanwho lived in the forest.Despite being warned by Narada that he would die within a year of marriage,she married sathayavan.
    IN the jungle Savithri began to pray for her husband.s life.Her offerings were durwa grass and peepal leaves.She performed neivedhyam with wild rice and toor dal. that is kaara arisi and thuvaram parrupu that is why this vratham is known as karadayan nonbu.
    The pe destined last day of Sathayavan dawaned.Savithri stayed by Sathyavan's side.
    The Lord of death came.But he was pleased with her nonbu he wanted to granted her something excepting her husband,s life.Savitiri expressed her desire to be the mother of100 children.
    Yamadharme realized that in order to grant Savitiri's wish he would have spare Sathyavan's life.So he granted her wish to honor her courage and devotion to her husband.So this karayadan nonbu protected her husband.
    Prayers are offered to GowriDevi and women meditate on Savitiri and wear a yellow thread round their neckas they chant the following sloka
    Throram Krishhnami subhake saharitham
    Dharami aham bharthu
    Ayushya Sidhartham supreethabhava sarvadha
    The following is the tamil chant
    Urukaddha Venneyum oradhayam naan nootren
    Orukkalum en kanavar ennai vittu pririyadhirukka vendum
    which means I offer butter and the rice made out of kaara arisi bless me that i live happily with my husband.
    Neivadhayam is made of betel leaves a adai made out of rice and butter.
    O n this occasion let me wish all the ladies a happy karadayan nonbu.As you all know this one is extra special for me.I will include all my friends in my special prayers tomorrow,. yours kanaka raghavan

    Dear Sanravi, Radha & Vandana,
    Both shlokams, V has given the link for & the one Anjana has mentioned are auspicious to be chanted daily & particularly for nombu.
    Let me ask you something. It is customary to worship Kamakshi Amman today for nombu. If you are interested, I can post a 5 verse Kamakshi Shloka, which I do not find on the net. It is a very powerful shloka for brilliance, auspiciousness , soumangalyam etc.
    Love,
    Chithra.
