Introduction

 

The Hindu festivals, fasts, rituals, holy baths and the observance of sacred days are part and parcel of the great cultural heritage. They are religious and social and a great source of spiritual and moral enrichment. They also lend zest, variety, colour and grandeur to an otherwise insipid, routine and care-worn day-to–day human existence. The Hindu festivals are more than what they appear to be. They are essentially a way of living and thinking in the course of existence, and as such bring their whole right to bear on the individual and the society.

 

Unlike the deities of the Hindu pantheon, the festivals are numerous and frequent, but basically religious, psychological and intimately connected with the changes of seasons, though many of them have lost the history of their origin in the mists of hoary past. With passage of time they have undergone a process of transformation and evolution and many new festivals have been grafted upon the old ones.

 

A Hindu festival is, in fact, something more than a ‘festival’. It is cathartic in nature, and as a means of purification strengthens the spirit within. Their goal is to find enjoyment through renunciation and self-denial. They are more of an exploration of the colourful things of life, without being bound to or obsessed by them.

 

Navaratri

From Thursday, 7 October to Thursday, 14 October 2021

(Please note according to UK local time Maha Ashtami will be on Wednesday, 13 October 2021)

 

Navaratri is a nine-day festival in which nine forms of Goddess Durga are worshipped. It is one of the most significant festivals celebrated by Hindus all across the world with greatest fervour. There are a total of four Navaratris in a year, but only two – Chaitra Navaratri and Sharad Navaratri are celebrated widely. People in different part of the world celebrate this same festival differently, though they worship the same deity, performing different rituals.

‘Navaratri’ in Sanskrit means ‘nine nights’. On these nine nights, people observe fast and offer special prayers to the ‘Nine Forms of Maa Durga’. Goddess Durga is an incarnation of Goddess Parvati. She took the avatar of Devi Durga to destroy Mahishasur.

 

Very important note:

Please do not starve, even if you are observing a fast, it is important to take care of your health and not starve yourself.

Drink enough water, unless you are observing Nirjal Vrat. You can also have fresh juices without preservatives to keep yourself hydrated.

 

The nine forms of Maa Durga are worshipped and here are the nine forms.

Dashera

Thursday, 14 October 2021 (Vijay Muhurat 14:36 to 15:19)

Dashera or Vijay Dashmi is a very popular Hindu Festival.

Dashera in Sanskrit also means taking away the ten sins.

Ahankara (Ego)

Amanavta (Cruelty)

Anyaaya (Injustice)

Kama vasana (Lust)

Krodha (Anger)

Lobha (Greed)

Mada (Over Pride)

Matsara (Jealousy)

Moha (Attachment)

Swartha (Selfishness)

Hence, also known as *'Vijaydashami'* signifying *”Vijay”* over these ten bad qualities.

According to the great Hindu scripture, the Ramayan, Lord Ram performed chandi-puja (holy prayer).

This was carried out in order to invoke the blessings of Durga Maa for the killing of Ravan, the ten-headed demon king of Sri Lanka who had abducted Seeta, wife of Lord Ram.

Durga Maa divulged the secret to Ram on how he could slay the great Ravan. Hence upon vanquishing the demon Ravan, Lord Ram with Seeta and younger brother Laxman, returned victorious to his kingdom of Ayodhya on the day, which is called 'Diwali'.

Dashera celebrates the victory of good over evil. Enormous effigies of Lord Ravan stuffed with firecrackers are lit with flaming arrows.

LIST OF IMPORTANT HINDU FESTIVALS & VRATS FOR U.K.
From 05-11-2021 TO 25-10-2022 - V.S. 2078
(Prepared according to local UK Time).

 

Important Note:

The Hindu festivals are generally based on a certain Tithi (roughly translated as the lunar phase) or the Nakshatra (Position of Asterisms with respect to the moon and the earth) in a given month or the transition of other heavenly bodies. When the time and place differ a lot from the place for which the Panchang (Religious Almanac) is computed the occurrence of the festival on a given day could change. To correctly compute the time and date of a festival, one must compute the Tithi, Nakshatra etc. for that place in terms of the local time of that place. The festival celebration times and days/dates listed here are calculated according to local UK times and these may differ from other places in the world (e.g. India, USA).
