Kushmanda Navami - This Navami is also known as Kushmanda Navami as Srimannarayana is believed to have vanquished daithya named Kushmanda and thus helping dharma sthapana. Kooshmaanda daana to be given - Kooshmanda daana, (pumpkin-booda gumbalakai) given on this day will releave garbhadhosha and we will have satsantaanapraapthi. As Dwidala Vratha is observed during the period instead of Boodagumbala Vegetable, we can give Coconut daana also which is also of the same effect that of Kooshmaanda. However, even you can give kooshmanda (booda gumbalakai), but the person who is the receiver, if he is observing Dwidala Vratha, can utilise once the vratha is over after Uttana Dwadashi.
