Jammi & Palapitta symbols of luck

Vanni_maram_branchDasara is the top festival for Telugus and with the traditional
flower-decked ‘Bathukammalu’ the festival is celebrated with pomp and splendor for nine days culminating with Vijaya Dasami celebrations. The highlight of the festivities is worship of ‘Jammi Tree’ ( Shami ), which the Pandavas of Maha Bharatam fame did before beginning their 13th year incognito and they were successful. They were said to have deposited their missiles on the said tree and none could spot them, according to Puranas. Thereafter, Hindus started worshipping the sacred Jammi to claim luck and blessings of the Goddess Durgamatha as
Pandavas were also victorious in their battle against the Kauravas in the Kurukshetra great war. Whoever begins a new project on Dasara will be successful, according to a legend. Besides, as per tradition, devotees also try to visit the bird Kingfisher ( Palapitta ) as did by
the blessed Pandavas after they emerged successful as none could spot them during the stipulated 13th year. In TS much significance and importance is attached to this mythical bird which brings fortune to the believers.
