Mahalaya: The final day of presenting tribute to our departed forefathers,
i. e pitripaksha and the start of the devipaksha is referred to as mahalaya.
At the time of the cataclysm, while the earth have become a first-rate
cause-sea, Lord Vishnu laid Anantanag on that sea and fell right into
a deep sleep.
