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

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
