Makar Sankranti 2019 And First Shahi Snan Tomorrow

Shubh muhurat for Shahi snan. This Makar Sankranti, welcome Maa Lakshmi to your home by taking a dip in the river of wealth.

Makar Sankranti is a major festival among Hindus. In India, this is one festival which is celebrated in different forms in different regions. The rituals and names may vary, but the intention of celebrating the hard work of farmers is the same. Makar Sankranti is observed on 14th January, but this year it will fall on 15th. It is the day when Sun starts its journey towards the Northern Hemisphere, thus warming up the days. With this change in movement, Sun transits into Capricorn sign

Though most of the dates of Hindu festivals are calculated on the basis of Panchang, this is one festival which is celebrated as per the movement of the Sun only. With this festival, people bid goodbye to winters and welcome the refreshing spring which is fast approaching. With sweet breeze flowing, days getting longer, people fly kites on this day.

Makar Sankranti Muhurat (New Delhi, India)

Punya Kaal Muhurat

First Shahi Snan of Kumbh begins with Makar Sankranti

As per religious beliefs, the first Shahi Snan of Kumbh begins after the transit of Sun in Capricorn sign. Though Kumbh and Makar Sankranti are two different aspects, first holy bath generally takes place after the transit of Sun in the sign Capricorn. Kumbh Mela is organized every twelve years. In the year 2019, in Prayagraj, Allahabad at Triveni Sangam, the fair called Ardh (half) Kumbh will be organized. Ardh Kumbh is organized every six years. 

Significance of Shahi Snan

Among several religious places in India, there are places where pilgrimage or prayers are considered to be auspicious, particularly during the month of Magh, especially on the day of Makar Sankranti. Kumbh mela and Sabri mela in Kerala are such occasions which are so huge that they become tourist attraction. People take a dip in Narmada river and pray for a prosperous year. It is believed that taking a bath in holy rivers clears your past sins.

Scientific Significance of Makar Sankranti

On the day of Makar Sankranti, it is better if you take a bath after applying til (sesame seeds) oil all over your body. You must, thereafter, donate jaggery, sesame seeds, oil, blankets, fruits, umbrellas, etc. to the poor and needy as per your capacity. Scientifically, this day is significant as the day and night are nearly equal on this day. The days start becoming longer and nights get shorter, which is an indication of the winter season to be over. The weather is warmer and pleasant as Sun starts moving towards North.

While Sun is moving towards the South, the rays do not seem to be good for one’s health but when the direction of movement is towards the North, the rays of Sun become beneficial for health. 

Festivals Associated with Makar Sankranti

During the month of January, farmers start harvesting the rabi crops. The season of Spring is around the corner and the atmosphere is of bliss. This festival of harvesting has different names popular across different states, but the motive is to celebrate the rewards of the hard work farmers put in to receive good yield in their farms. Let’s discuss a few of them:

Pongal: Pongal is primarily the festival of farmers and the harvesting festival of South-India. It is celebrated in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Andhra Pradesh. There is a trend of worshipping cows along with worshipping God and showing gratitude towards them.

Uttarayan: The festival of Uttarayan and International Kite Flying festival has made the state of Gujrat so popular that people recognize it with its festivals. Every year, on 14th or 15th January, Uttarayan is celebrated. In Gujrat, people also keep a fast on this day which is contrary to the tradition of eating Khichdi prevalent in North India.

Lohri: The most renowned festival of Punjab, Lohri is celebrated on 13th of January every year. It is a festival of harvest celebrated by lighting a bonfire, singing and dancing around it, and just like any festival of Punjab is incomplete without food, enjoying traditional dishes. Popcorns, Sesame seeds, jaggery and sweets made from these are popular snacks consumed on Lohri.

Magh/Bhogali Bihu: A festival of Assam which is celebrated thrice a year is Bihu. One of the three Bihus is Bhogali Bihu which is celebrated with pomp and show. Bihu dance is an inseparable part of this celebration, and so are the traditional cuisines. Til (sesame seeds), rice, sugarcane and coconut are the crops popular in this region. Dishes are made from these and served to all the guests.

The festival of Lohri celebrates the harvesting season. It symbolizes abundance, prosperity, fertility and good yield.

The festival holds great significance for Sikh community but is also celebrated in Haryana, Delhi, Himachal Pradesh and nearby regions. Since this festival is more about merry-making, it has nowadays gained popularity and is celebrated everywhere in the world. People of Punjab are known for their love of food and this occasion is a celebration for the same. It is like a thanksgiving day when everyone shows their gratitude to the almighty for blessing us with a good yield.

Purpose behind celebrating Lohri

As per Hindu Calendar, the festival of Lohri is linked with Makar Sankranti and season of harvest. It is technically the new year for the farmers as their hard work is rewarded and the granaries soon become full, hereby giving them financial stability. Lohri, is thus, a festival of agrarian India and is celebrated in a grand manner. The transit of Sun from Sagittarius to Capricorn suggests a change in weather as Sun moves to the Northern Hemisphere. With warmer days replacing the cold ones, the farmers harvest the crop of Rabi.

Folk Music and the festival of Lohri

Folk music, especially when it is from the state of Punjab, is something that people all over the world are big fans of. The music popular in Punjab is full of energy, high-beats and fast. Just listening to it fills us with enthusiasm and happiness. Bhangra and Gidda, the traditional dance forms, compliment the folk music and are a means of showing joy. Along with showing the happiness of receiving good yield, these songs are also used to honour Dulla Bhatti Wala, the Robinhood of Punjab. Most of the songs revolve around him and crops. Bonfire is an integral part of Lohri celebrations, where people gather around, sing and dance to show their joy and spread happiness around.

Dulla Bhatti and Lohri

The mythological fable popular along with this festival is that of Dulla Bhatti. It could be history, an anecdote or just a story but as per the belief, during the Mughal reign, While Akbar was on the throne, there was a man named Dulla Bhatti who was in strong opposition of the kind of trade that was prevalent. Young girls were being traded for goods. Dulla Bhatti saved those girls from the cruel merchants and arranged for their marriage. He became the hero and the role model for many after this noble deed. From that very day, by singing the song “sunder mundriye”, he is remembered and thanked. 

Rituals involved in Lohri Celebrations

Though this festival is primarily celebrated by Sikh community and people of Punjab, same enthusiasm is shown by everyone around the globe. It is a way of farmers to show gratitude towards God and thank him for blessing us with a good yield. 

  • Children go around visiting their neighbours and ask them for treats. They sing folk songs and make collections for Lohri.
  • It is believed that on this day, nobody should return a kid empty-handed, so they are offered sweets, jaggery, groundnuts and other such stuff to eat. Monetary rewards are also given.
  • At night, people gather around the place where Lohri (bonfire) is lit. They bring along food items like gajak, groundnuts, popcorn, etc. 
  • People sing and dance around the bonfire and greet each other.
  • The most important food item that is cooked for the day of Lohri is Makki di roti and Sarso da Saag, which is a traditional cuisine served to the guests and family members.
  • At some places, people also fly kites on this day.

Bonfire and Lohri

Since burning the pile of logs is an inevitable part of Lohri celebrations, there’s something more than just fire and warmth which makes it so important. Many people believe that this is done in the memory of Goddess Sati, the daughter of Daksh Prajapati. As per mythology, She was the first wife of Lord Shiva. When her father organized a maha-yagya (great yajna), he invited every Devta (Lord) but not her husband Shiva. Angered by such an insult of her husband, she went to her father’s home and asked her father the reason behind. Her father spoke ill about Lord Shiva due to which she sat in the fire of yajna, to be burnt alive. She sacrificed her body for the sake of her husband’s honour.

Another belief is that the last night of the month of Paush and the first morning of the month of Magh are extremely cold. To give warmth and comfort, this bonfire is lit.

Other States celebrating Lohri

Lohri is a festival of harvesting season, so is Makar Sankranti, Pongal and Bihu. In Andhra Pradesh, Lohri is celebrated as Bhogi. On this day, people replace the old stuff of their house with new ones and use the same for lighting up a bonfire. This could include old furniture or wooden items, but objects made of metal are never offered to fire.
