Hindu Festivals and Sacred Days
Description

From the back of the Book

Swami Harshananda who approaches the topic in this book provides a brief history, meaning and symbology of each festival in a very simple way. In the 'vrata' or religious vow, the emphasis is on austerities (fasting and observance of silence.)

Swami Harshananda explains the significance of Yama Navami, Krishna Janmashtami, Vinayaka (Ganesha) Chathurthi, Vijayadasami forming part of Navarathri, Deepavali (Diwali), Holi and Sivarathri. He has presented the vratas or festivals in the order in which they occur as per the lunar days (thithis). The vows on Ekadasi and Dwadasi are of much relevance to all men. Upakarma is yet another event of great import when men recall the guidance given by the ancient wisdom. There are men who scrupulously adhere to the divine command of submission to the departed, on the Amavasya days. A detailed account of all vratas has been explained by the author and a perusal of this small volume will enlighten the reader about the need to carry the vratas and celebrate the festivals with greater devotion. In the epilogue, the Swami refers to the recent unhealthy trend among dome sections to indulge in irreverent acts. The dignity and solemnity should be maintained, he urges.

Contents:

 

    Preface         Key to Transliteration and Pronunciation     1.  General Introduction    2.  Vratas and Utsavas    3.  Major Festivals    4.  Other Festivals    5.  Jayantis or Birthdays    6.  A Few Vratas Commonly Observed     7.  Epilogue        Appendix        Index

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
