Govatsa Dwadsahi: The Festival Of Holy Cows

Govatsa Dwadashi, the day of worshipping cow and her calf falls on Dwadashi Krishna Paksha of Karthika Masam. As the day is in reference with the cow Nandhini and her calves; therefore, is also known as Nandhini Vrata. 

Govatsa Dwadashi ritual

As the day is dedicated to the worship of cows, intake of cow milk, curd and ghee are prohibited on this day.

In North India, it is known as “Vagh” which refers to repaying of financial debts. On this day, people clear their account books and do not enter any new transaction in it. In Andhra, it is observed as Guru Dwadashi.

How To Observe Govatsa Dwadashi Vrat:


  • Individuals observing the fast, get up early in the morning, take bath, wear clean clothes and take resolution for the fast.
  • After that, cow and her calf are given bath and adorned with turmeric, sandalwood, flowers, rice, kumkum, water and incenses.
  • The cow is fed with food items made from Urad Dal.
  • Govatsa story is listened and fast for the whole day is observed.
  • Puja is performed in the evening and food is taken after that. Only one meal is taken on this day.

Cultural Beliefs


  • According to legends, this fast was started by a King who was childless. After his wife observed this fast, they were blessed with a son. Childless couples should observe this fast to be blessed with the pleasure of having a child. 
  • People observing this fast should adopt Brahmachari and must sleep on the floor. They should worship Lord Vishnu and Shiva. 

Spiritual importance of Govatsa Dwadashi:


On this day, the manifest frequencies of Lord Vishnu are absorbed in the cow. As a result, there is emission of the Chaitanya-filled frequencies into the Universe in the form of a cover. Thus, the person worshipping a cow on this day attains the benefits of these frequencies.

Principles Of All Deities Reside In The Cow


Lord Sri Krishna is fond of cows. Also, Dattatreya is accompanied by a cow. It is believed that all Deities reside in the cow. The products obtained from the cow like, ghee, milk, cow-dung, ghee or cow urine, all have the Principle of Deities in them.

Nakshatra Calculator: Know The Star That Makes You Shine

Nakshatra or birth star which is called constellation in english plays a very important role in Hindu astrology. They are divided into 27 nakshatras depending on various important aspects. Read on to know more and also find out which is your nakshatra. 

Magical stars

Nakshatra or janma nakshatra plays a very important role in hindu astrology. With the help of ones janma nakshatra, one can predict the natives life pattern, character and personality. According to Indian astrology the zodiac is an imaginary belt of 360 degrees. It is this 360 belt which is divided into 27 parts or 27 nakshatras which play a major role in Astrological nakshatra calculations. There is also a 28th star called Abhijith, but many astrologers prefer using only the first 27 nakshatras for their calculations. 

When the 360 degree constellation belt is divided into 27 parts, each nakshatra is of 13 degree 20 minutes. These 27 parts are further divided into four parts called padas, which is quarters of 3 degrees and 27 minutes. Further, each one of these nakshatras are further divided into four quarters or in astrological terms, four padas. So, now we can say that…
one rashi = 9 padas. 

For example, lets take the first rashi Mesha (Aries) which has 30 degrees = four padas of first nakshatra ashwini + four padas of second nakshatra Bharani + one pada of the third nakshatra Krittika. 

Now, apart for calculative classification, these Nakshatras are broadly classified into three groups Deva(divine), Nara(human), Rakshasa(demonic). They are further divided into gender (male or female) and Varna (cast). Each nakshatra is ruled by its respective planet and also has its respective deity. 

The study of stars in astrology is called “Stellar astrology”, some examples for stellar astrology are KP system and Dhruva Nadi.

To help you know which nakshatra you belong to, we bring you our nakshatra calculator.

Legend Behind The Formation Of Nakshatras.


The 27 nakshatras or constellations were the daughters of King Dakshan who were married to Moon. Though Moon was married to 27 nakshatras his one true love was Rohini nakshatra which is also Moon’s exaltation point. This made the other nakshatras sad and they sought out the help of their father King Daksha. Who then, requested Moon to care for all of his daughters, even after repeated warnings from the King, Moon continued to still spend time only with Rohini. This act of Moon angered Daksha and resulted in cursing the Moon, causing it to wane in size. With this arrived many consequences, as such the devas intervened and requested the King to forgive Moon. As Moon has learnt his lesson and assured Daksha that he would visit all of his daughters, the king decided to forgive. But since the curse can’t be lifted off completely, it was modified to Moon regaining his strength for half a month.

Surya Namaskar: A Salutation to Surya

Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutation, is done in devotion of the centre of the universe, the Sun. Surya Namaskar is a way of salutation to this most powerful celestial body which provides heat and light to other planets. 

Surya Namaskar is experienced on three levels: mind, body and intellect. It is a sort of training to the mind and soul. We must know that only 35-40% of our muscles are involved in our daily activities and rest all remain inactive. Our body gets prone to diseases when there is imbalance of Kapha, Waat and Pitta. To remain active throughout our life, we must practice Surya Namaskar which involves the working of almost 95% to 97% of our muscles.

The breathing exercise, Pranayama, involved in Surya Namaskar provides more oxygen to the lungs making the rhythm of breathing heavy with vitality.

The Chakras (vital points) get charged and the Surya-Tej of these Chakras are enlightened with the sight and thought of Surya Devta (Sun God).
