Jay Swaminarayan! Hinduism is a religion with most spectacular and fascinating festivals in the world. Festivals are the heart of Hinduism. The numerous and varied festivals of Hinduism are a unique way of establishing intimate relationship with God. The rites and rituals are intriguing with much more deeper meanings for a peaceful life. Hinduism is a religion with numerous utsavs.
In Sanskrit utsav means the removal of darkness. Numerous festivals and utsavs in ancient India removed the darkness from people's life. The ancient Indian Vedic Knowledge lucidly describes the importance of festivals in our mundane lives. The ancient Indian Vedic knowledge is comprised of spiritual, mundane and ritualistic knowledge. The Vedic Knowledge contains timeless revelations and is organized in a systematic structure with a precisely defined goal. Following the same trend, Almighty Lord Swaminarayan organized numerous festivals and utsavs during his era. However, the problem in this modern era is that there are so many festivals that it is difficult to keep track of it. We tend to forget when the next ekadashi, Hari Jayanti, etc. comes.
Hence, here we have presented the information about the Vikram Samvat calendar. Our goal is to present information about the Indian Calendar relevant to the diverse needs and interests of the Hindu community, devotees and anyone else interested. Jay Swaminarayan!
