In addition to human life on earth, the influence of the sun and moon on other living things and plants is always seen. This is due to the movement of the sun creating seasons. The influence of this season is evident in the economic, social and health of human beings.
When we say that man is happy with two leaves, people say that spring has come in his life. And when there is a shortage of material from a human being, people say that autumn is sitting in his life. Thus, the meaning of spring has long been associated with prosperity. Therefore, the day of Maha Sud Pancham i.e. Vasant Panchami is celebrated as a holy day for attaining happiness and progress.
This year the day of Vasant Panchami is Maha Sud Pancham on Tuesday, Ta. It is on 16-09-2021.
There is a clear idea in all cultures of the world that the ups and downs of human life, animal life and flora on earth are directly related to nature. Our ancestors made special efforts to understand these principles of nature. Which also had good success.
Astronomy is the study of the different positions of the Sun and Moon relative to the Earth. Astrology is the study of the effects of different types of motion of the Sun and Moon on the human life, fauna and flora of the earth.
In Indian culture, the holy day of Sud Pancham of Maha Mas is the festival of Vasant Panchami. In Indian culture, Vasant Panchami is of special importance for the worship of theology, astronomy, astrology, spirituality, art, education and learning. We have got the name of the twelve lunar months from Nakshatra. Shrimad Bhagavad Gita says that I am spring in seasons. The fifth date in the calendar is the full date.
Kartak from Kritika Nakshatra, Magshar from Mrigashirsha, Magh from Magha Nakshatra, Chaitra from Chitra, Vaishakh from Vaishakha, Shravan from Shravan are the names of twelve months based on Nakshatra. Maha name is prevalent in the folk language to show the importance of the month of Magh. In astrology, the day of Vasant Panchami is considered more auspicious. However, when Jupiter and Venus disappear, there are no moments of marriage, Vastu and Janoi. The moon is always in Pisces on the day of Vasant Panchami.
According to the Kalikapurana, Brahma created Kamadeva to break Mahadev’s penance. Cupid demanded an assistant. Brahmaji sighed. From this breath Vasantdev was born. Thus, Vasant Panchami means the birthday of Cupid’s assistant Vasantdev. Cupid was burnt while trying to break Mahadev’s cannon. With the prayers of Kamadeva’s wife Rati and the gods, Mahadev revived Kamadeva, but without any limbs – as ‘Anang’
There is a saying among the farmers that it is a good thing to have ‘Maha Melo and Chaitra Chokhko’. That is, having a cloud in the Great Mass is a good sign. This cloud indicates a cloudburst and the fact that Chaitra Mass is clear – cloudless – is welcome for the coming monsoon.
According to the seasons, Vasant Panchami is the day of the arrival of spring. In spring the ground water rejuvenates the vegetation.
Various fairs are held in Punjab on the day of Vasant Panchami. Kamadahan is celebrated in Shiva temples in Tamil Nadu. Kamadahan festival is not practiced in Gujarat. In Vaishnava temples, Lalji is dressed as ‘Vasanti’ Wagha. Along with Lalji, Cupid, Rati and Vasant are worshiped.
