Let's know Festivals of India
Let's know Festivals of India
Description
From the Back of the Book

Indian calendar is one long procession of festivals and fairs. These are as varied in origin as they are large in number. They reflect India's culture, civilization and history. They are a celebration of life itself and a cementing force of Indian society. Most of the festivals like Janmashtami, Ram Navami, Christmas, Buddha Purima, Durga puja and Gurpurabs celebrate religious occasions and birthdays of gods and guru and are marked by traditional ceremonies, ritual practices, worship, prayer and solemnity. Other festivals like Basant Panchami, Bihu, Lohri, Holi, Baisakhi, which mark of seasons of the year and harvesting of crops, are occasions for fun, frolic, feasts, music and dance. Karwa Chauth and Raksha Bandhan are festivals which are unique. Mohurram is not a festival but a martyrdom anniversary of Imam Hussein, the grandson of prophet Mohammad, which is marked by observance of 10 day mourning.

A number of festivals have evolved from ancient legends and celebrate the victory of good over evil. A number of them are common to most parts of India, sometimes, under different names. If one can be in the right place at the right time, it is possible to witness a festival each day. The festivals of India are so numerous that they run almost all the year round.

Indian festivals are thus a mosaic of myriad practices which, though diverse, are not divisive. In fact, whatever be the denomination of the festival, there is an emotional, if not physical, participation in the celebrations by members of all communities regardless of caste, creed and faith. This is what has kept India going strong for ages.

Testimonials

Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
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.
Bernd, Spain
