Makar/Teela Sankranti : Its importance

Posted on: Thursday, Sep 11, 2014


15 Janauary 2015 is Makar/Teela Sankranti, Let’s find out what’s its importance .

Makar/Teela Sankranti is loaded with multifarious messages. If one understands its messages, one’s life will certainly be more meaningful.

On Makar/Teela Sankranti day the grace of God is invoked through fervent prayers so that everyone may be blessed with a good and favourable time; a time without excessive heat or cold.

Many virtually seize this golden opportunity to indulge in various practices : Bathing at the confluence of the rivers- Ganga, Yamuna and the invisible Saraswati in Allahabad- as soon as day breaks on Makar/Teela Sankranti. The very use of sesame in savouries is another popular practice. Wearing of new clothes and spending the whole day to visit family members, friends and relatives and even the so-to-say enemies. In Mauritius the ritual is completed by going to the rivers or the sea.

Sankranti is also known as Khichri festival in the North of India. Khichri and sesame as well as sweet meals energise the whole body. Families always remember those who have left the fold and bind new ties with others- within networks of social and economic relation. It’s customary in some regions to offer gifts

to parents, friends and relatives on this auspicious occasion.

In some regions of India, the veneration of cows is a main feature in the celebration of Makar/Teela Sankranti. Bulls and cows are properly washed and their horns painted. Decorated with beautiful and fascinating flower garlands, and tinkling bells, these animals are then taken out into the village.

Kite festival is another feature. The brilliant colours signify hope, its size in relation to the sky symbolises the minuteness of man in front of the “Almighty” and its head reminds us that the rope of our life is being controlled by the Almighty/God. If (He) allows the rope to come down, we will most surely and certainly meet our end. William Shakespeare has also pointed out “As flies to wanton boys-are we to God.

God kills us for his sport.”
It goes without saying that festivals are not just for feasts and worship. They also act as social cement which brings people together in total harmony and strengthens brotherhood, love, peace, harmony, unity, mutual respect and mutual understanding. The very close observance of festivals has always symbolised and epitomised the fundamental values of life.

Vasant Panchami

Posted on: Monday, Sep 8, 2014

Vasant Panchami is on 25th Jan 2015.

Vasant Panchami is a festival full of religious, seasonal and social significance and is celebrated by Hindus all over the world with verve and new sense of optimism.

Vasant Panchami is the festival dedicated to Saraswati, the goddess of learning. (Deepavali is dedicated to Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, and Navaratri   Durga is dedicated primarily to Kali, goddess of strength, might and power.)

Magh Sud 5 (5th day of the bright fortnight of the lunar month of Magh) is the day of Vasant Panchami. Hindus all over the world celebrate this festival with great enthusiasm. This Panchami is also known as Saraswati Day. It is believed that this day is Saraswati’s birthday. Hindu temples are full of activities on this day.

Yellow colour is given special importance on this day. On Vasant Panchami, Saraswati is dressed in yellow garments and worshipped (with Puja, Havan etc.). Men and women try to wear yellow clothes on this day. Sweetmeats of yellowish hues are exchanged with relations and friends

Some people feed Brahmanas on this day. Pitri-Tarpan (ancestor worship) is done on this day. The god of love (Kamdev) is also worshipped on this day.

Children are taught their first words on this day (as an auspicious beginning to learning). Schools, colleges etc., (places of learning) organise special worship of Saraswati. Pandit Madan Mohan Malviya laid the foundations of Kashi Hindu Vishwa Vidyalaya on Vasant Panchami. This has become a world famous top class academic institution.

Hinduism has taken into account special significance of seasons and interwoven that with religious festivals e.g., Makar Sakranti, Vasant Panchami. People generally feel inclined to worship the presiding deity of the family (Ishta Devata or Devi) according to the individual’s faith and desires. Also, people generally tend to accumulate wealth and power. During the Kali Yuga (present age), the pursuit of money (wealth, power, name and fame) is everything to most people. Money is accorded god-like status.

But men of principle (men who can discriminate) worship goddess Saraswati for spiritual enlightenment. In their opinion, there can be no comparison between the king and the learned (spiritually advanced). The king is honoured within his kingdom, whereas the learned is respected (or worshipped) everywhere. Saintly people and people inclined towards spiritual progress attach great importance to the worship of goddess Saraswati.

The vehicle assigned to each of the three goddesses also symbolically represent their special powers. The white swan of Saraswati is symbolising Sattwa Guna (purity and discrimination). The owl of Lakshmi and the lion or tiger of Durga symbolise the other two gunas (Rajas and Tamas).

The first faint signals of the forthcoming festival of Holi manifest at Vasant Panchami. Seasons undergo change. The coming of springtime is heralded. Trees are displaying new shoots. New life is evident in the woods and fields. Nature decorates Mango trees with new blossoms. Wheat and other crops enliven with evidence of new life.

About Mithila

Mithila is an ancient cultural region of South Nepal and North India lying between the lower ranges of the Himalayas and the Ganges River. The Nepal border cuts across the top fringe of this region. The Gandak and Kosi Rivers are rough western and eastern boundaries of Mithila. The Ramayana records a dynastic marriage between Prince Rama of Ayodhya and Sita, the daughter of Raja Janak of Mithila. The town of Janakpur, in the northern Nepali section of Mithila, is believed to be Janak's old capital.
