So what are we waiting for? Let’s explore what this month has in store for each one of us.
Festival of Colors!
Holashtak: Holashtak begins 8 days prior to Holi and gives a feeling that Holi is on its way. As per the Hindu beliefs, some auspicious activities are not done during the Holashtak days. Preparations of Holika Dahan and Holi starts on Holashtak.
Holika Dahan is celebrated on the evening prior to Holi. Keeping the legend of Prahlad and Holika in mind, huge bonfire is arranged. Images and idols of Holika are burnt and traditional songs are sung.
In 2014, Holika Dahan is on March 16.
Holi welcomes spring and makes the atmosphere go green and beautiful.
In 2014, Ugadi is on March 31. Celebrate the Hindu New year!
Chaitra Navratri (also known as Vasant Navratri) is beginning on March 31, 2014. Again the supreme Goddess is arriving, let’s plan something in her welcome. Read our articles on Navratri and stay tuned for latest articles.
