Festivals are integral part of any culture. Celebrated throughout the year, the galaxy of Indian Festivals makes the Indian Heritage the richest. Vibrant colours, brightly lit places, traditional cuisines , sweets, dance , music, dresses , ornaments, fasting , feasting, exchanging gifts , good will, prayers , processions, rituals , holidays. To welcome a new season or a new year, the harvest or the rain; on religious occasions or birthdays of God, saints and gurus or to worship the Sun and the Moon...

Regions or reasons may vary and so do the names. But, the festive spirit, concept of universal brotherhood, warm hospitality and enthusiasm appeals people across the globe to be a part of it.

Sun, the most revered natural element is considered the god of energy and the force of life and is venerated to request the request the granting of certain wishes, during the Hindu festival ‘Chhath Pooja’. The Chhath Pooja is performed on Kartik Shukla Shashti, six days after Diwali, in the month of October or November. It is observed most elaborately in North Indian regions like Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh and the areas where migrants from those areas have a presence.

The ritual are rigorous and the ‘Parvaitins’ have a maintain purity during the four days of ‘Chhath Pooja’. These days are ‘Nahakha, ‘Kharna’ and ‘Daala Chhath Vrat’, which include ‘Sanjhiya Aragh followed by Bihaniya Aragh’ the next morning.

A vivid display of colours turns the occasion into a carnival at a riverbank, pond or a common large water body where the entire household accompanies the ‘Parvaitin’ to make the offerings (Aragh) to the setting and then the rising sun in celebrating its glory as the cycle of birth starts with death.

Chhath Pooja’s Yogic or scientific history dates back to Vedic times. It is a beautiful, spiritual experience connecting the modern Indian to his ancient cultural roots.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
