Festivals

Welcome to the festivals part of our website. Below are a list of all of the major festivals that the Hindu religion celebrate during the year along with full descriptions of each festival and a list of key dates for our festivals this year.

| Janmashtami |
Maha Shivratri | Navratri | Diwali |

  Janmasami
Janmashtami, the birthday of Shri Krishna, is celebrated with great splendour. Rows of lights are lit everywhere, Kirtans and Bhajans are sung, sermons are delivered and Krishna is worshipped in his infant form.
Krishna is Lord Vishnu's eighth avatar (incarnation) on earth. He is considered to be the Lord's most glorious incarnations. Even saying and remembering His name brings joy because Krishna himself was a manifestation of joy at all levels and in all walks of life. No other God in the Hindu pantheon, or for that matter in any other religion, is associated with so many romantic tales and so fully radiating with all the divine attributes as Krishna

Since Krishna lived in luxury throughout his life, Krishna Jayanti is celebrated with pomp and splendor. Plenty of sweets are made. Among these are laddus , chakli, cheedai, kheer, and so on. In addition, plenty of milk products especially butter, which was Krishna’s favourite childhood food, are given in offerings. A wide variety of fruits are also offered. The most common sweets made laddus and kheer.
 
  Maha Shivratri Top >>
Maha Shivratri falls on the fourteenth day of the dark fortnight of the Hindu calendar month of Magh. (Around January/ February each year. Shivratri is celebrated every month. Mahashivratri once a year on the above date.

MahaShivratri translated in English means the Great night of Shiva. It is on this night that he is believed to have performed a special dance. The dancing form of Shiva is called Natraja. In this dance he destroys the Old World so that a New World can be born. It is not the birthday of Lord Shiva. Shiva has no birth or death, like any mortal.
As a Natraja he has four arms. In one hand he holds a drum known as damru. (That is why we sing “dam dam dam damru bajaye”). The drum represents the first sound of creation \ (aum). In his second hand he holds a burning flame.

The fire represents the end of the world. The second right hand shows a gesture of protection, “abhaya-hasta-mudra” meaning the absence of fear. The second left hand points to the raised left foot which shows the path of Moksha. With his right foot he dances on the demon of ignorance (apasmara).

His whole body is surrounded by a “torana”, an arch of flames. This circle of flames represents the destruction and re-creation of the universe.

 Navratri
This festival is essentially religious in nature. It is celebrated with true devotion in the various temples dedicated to the Mother, or Mataji, as she is familiarly called. In some homes, images of the Mother are worshipped in accordance with accepted practice. This is also true of the temples, which usually have a constant stream of visitors from morning to night
Navratri or the Festival of Nine Nights from Ashvin Sud 1 to 9 is devoted to the propitiation of Shakti or Divine Mother. She represents prakriti, counterpart of purusha jointly making possible the creation of the world according to the religious ideology of Goddess worship. Such worships were prevalent in India even before the advent of the Aryans, who adopted it as a religious practice. References in vedas and puranas confirm this opinion. The main temples of mother goddess that are visited by multitude of devotees during Navratri are the shaktipithas, of which there are three in Gujarat. It is believed that Lord Vishnu had to cut the body of Sati into pieces to stop the destruction by Shiva who was perturbed by her death. At fifty-two places these pieces fell, the three in Gujarat being; Ambaji in Banaskantha,
Bahucharaji in Chunaval and Kalika on Pavagadh hill in Panchmahals.Banaskantha, Bahucharaji in Chunaval and Kalika on Pavagadh hill in Panchmahals.

 Diwali
This Diwali which leads us into Truth and Light is celebrated on a nation-wide scale on Amavasya - the 15th day of the dark fortnight of the Hindu month of Ashwin (October/November) every year. It symbolises that age-old culture of our country which teaches us to vanquish ignorance that subdues humanity and to drive away darkness that engulfs the light of knowledge. Diwali, the festival of lights even to-day in this modern world projects the rich and glorious past of our country and teaches us to uphold the true values of life.
The word "Diwali" is the corruption of the Sanskrit word "Deepavali" - Deepa meaning light and Avali, meaning a row. It means a row of lights and indeed illumination forms its main attraction. Every home - lowly or mightly - the hut of the poor or the mansion of the rich - is alit with the orange glow of twinkling diyas-small earthen lamps - to welcome Lakshmi, Goddess of wealth and prosperity. Multi-coloured Rangoli designs, floral decorations and fireworks lend picturesness and grandeur to this festival which heralds joy, mirth and happiness in the ensuring year.
