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.

The full moon of the shravan, a pious Hindu Monsoon month, falls in August, known as ‘Shravani Poornima’, the day is celebrated for different reasons.

‘Raksha Bandhan’ means the bond of protection and unconditional love between brothers and sisters. Sisters tie Rakhi a sacred thread on their brother’s wrist and bestow him with gifts and blessings while the brothers promise to stand by sisters through good and bad times. Rakhi is a pledge to be kind to all through one’s actions, speech, and behaviour. The essence of Rakhi suggests universal brotherhood.

For Brahmins, ‘Balev’, the day to take the pledge of Brahmanik rites and change the sacred thread (‘Janeu’ or ‘Yagnopavit’). Amongst all the 16 Sanskars of Hinduism, ‘Upanayan’, the sacred thread initiation, is regarded as supreme. A Brahmin by birth becomes a Brahmin by Karma only after wearing the thread and performing the ceremony.

For fishermen, ‘Narali Pournima’ is the beginning of a new fishing season. The fishing business stops between June and August. Only after offering tender coconuts and receiving blessings of ‘Dariya Raja’, the sea Lord and the rain God Varun, Fisher-folks can celebrate ‘Raksha Bandhan’ and resume fishing activities. Gala processions, traditional Koli attires (Thhaat), Koli-dance. Beats of drums, trumpets and the cries of enjoyment are the trademarks of the festivity.

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.
