Hindu Festivals and Sacred Days
Hindu Festivals and Sacred Days
Description

From the back of the Book

Swami Harshananda who approaches the topic in this book provides a brief history, meaning and symbology of each festival in a very simple way. In the 'vrata' or religious vow, the emphasis is on austerities (fasting and observance of silence.)

Swami Harshananda explains the significance of Yama Navami, Krishna Janmashtami, Vinayaka (Ganesha) Chathurthi, Vijayadasami forming part of Navarathri, Deepavali (Diwali), Holi and Sivarathri. He has presented the vratas or festivals in the order in which they occur as per the lunar days (thithis). The vows on Ekadasi and Dwadasi are of much relevance to all men. Upakarma is yet another event of great import when men recall the guidance given by the ancient wisdom. There are men who scrupulously adhere to the divine command of submission to the departed, on the Amavasya days. A detailed account of all vratas has been explained by the author and a perusal of this small volume will enlighten the reader about the need to carry the vratas and celebrate the festivals with greater devotion. In the epilogue, the Swami refers to the recent unhealthy trend among dome sections to indulge in irreverent acts. The dignity and solemnity should be maintained, he urges.

Contents:

 

    Preface         Key to Transliteration and Pronunciation     1.  General Introduction    2.  Vratas and Utsavas    3.  Major Festivals    4.  Other Festivals    5.  Jayantis or Birthdays    6.  A Few Vratas Commonly Observed     7.  Epilogue        Appendix        Index

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
