Kumbh Mela 2021

Introduction Of Kumbh Mela 2021.

 Kumbha Mela, in Hindu, a religious festival that is celebrated four times over the course of 12 years, the site of the observance rotating between four pilgrimage places on four sacred rivers—at Haridwar on the Ganges River, at Ujjain on the Shipra, at Nashik on the Godawari, and at Prayag (modern Prayagraj) at the confluence of the Ganges, the Jamuna, and the mythical Sarasvati.

About Kumbh Mela.

Each site’s celebration is based on a distinct set of astrological positions of the Sun, the Moon, and Jupiter, the holiest time occurring at the exact moment when these positions are fully occupied. The Kumbh Mela at Prayag, in particular, attracts millions of pilgrims. In addition, a Great Kumbh Mela festival is held every 144 years at Prayag; the 2001 festival attracted some 60 million people.

The Kumbh Mela is held in Prayagraj (at the confluence of Ganga, Yamuna and Saraswati Rivers), Nasik (River Godavari), Ujjain (River Shipra) and Haridwar (River Ganga).

Why Kumbh Mela Celebrated?

A pot (Kumbh) containing Amrita was one of the creative product of the Samudra manthan legend in ancient Hindu texts.

It is believed, the nectar from the pot fell at four locations – Prayagraj, Ujjain, Haridwar, and Nasik during an epic battle between the gods and the demons. At these four places, Kumbh Mela takes place. The Hindu devotees throng these places with a belief that a dip in the waters of the sacred rivers will wash away all their sins.

What is Ardh Kumbh Mela?

The Ardh Kumbh Mela (Half Kumbh Mela) is held every 6 years in two different locations, Allahabad and Haridwar. Ardh means ‘half’ which is interpreted as the half of 12 years.

The Kumbh Mela was started in Haridwar on 14th January, while the first Shahi Snan will take place on 11th March. The last Shahi Snan will take place on 14th April, marking the end of the Haridwar Kumbh Mela.

What is the religious significance of Kumbh Mela for devotees of Hinduism?

Kumbh Mela – a dip in the waters is one of the key rituals.

The Hindu devotees believe that a visit to the auspicious Kumbh Mela and a dip in the river will cleanse them from all their sins.

What are the main attractions of Kumbh Mela?

Kumbh Mela at Haridwar.

The major attractions of the Kumbh Mela are a holy bath in the sacred river that is believed to cleanse one from all their sins; the sacred Aartis on the banks of the river accompanied by the prayers and hymns chanted by the priests, the Pravachan, Kirtan, Mahaprasad and the Naga Sadhus.

Which King Started Kumbh fair?

Harshavardhana king started the organization of the Kumbh fair at Allahabad. The Allahabad Kumbh Mela is a mela held every 12 years at Allahabad, India. The exact date is determined according to Hindu astrology the Mela is held when Jupiter is in Taurus and the sun and the moon are in Capricorn.

When was first Kumbh Mela held?

The 1870 fair at Allahabad is the earliest fair that is described as a “Kumbh Mela” by contemporary sources. The previous Kumbh Mela would have been scheduled in 1858; but that year, no fair was held in Allahabad because of disturbances resulting from the 1857 uprising.

There are a number of food stalls in Kumbh Mela that offers lip-smacking kachori with sabzi and tomato chutney. These kachoris with a delicious filling melt in your mouth and leave you with the desire to ask for more. In some of the stalls, you might also find kachoris fried in desi ghee.

About Naga Sadhu & Aghori

According to various assumptions, there are 4 to 5 million sadhus in India today. Sadhus are widely respected for their holiness.

It is also said that, they also meditate on the corpses which is a symbolic of their rise from ‘Shava’ to ‘Shiva’

The Naga Sadhus usually wander around naked and the Aghori baba normally wears some animal skin clothing or any other cloth to cover their lower part of the body. We see most of the Naga Sadhus in Kumbh Mela or in their Akharas. But Aghori Baba does not seem to be seen anywhere. They only reside in the crematorium. Naga Sadhus take part in Kumbh Mela and then move to the Himalayas. So, Naga Sadhus live in Akharas or Himalayas and usually visit the civilization during the Mahakumbh festival in India to take part in the holy dip.

Nagas are usually known as warrior Sadhus and are ready to fight intellectually or wrestle anytime. But Aghori babas mainly are involved in meditation and dark arts. They are believed to perform Dark Magic. Naga Sadhus and Aghori Baba adhere to the complete Brahmacharya, staying away from the family. Even in the process of becoming a saint, they have to sacrifice their families, that is, they make their own Shraadh also.

Conclusion

The Kumbh Mela in India is as mesmerizing as it is spiritual. This ancient northern Indian festival is a meeting of mystical minds. The largest religious gathering in the world, the Kumbh Mela brings Hindu holy men together to discuss their faith and disseminate information about their religion.

    May you be blessed with good health, wealth, long life, peace, happiness and joy on the auspicious day of Holi.

    Introduction Holi Festival

    About Holi

    An ancient Hindu festival, which later became popular among non-Hindu communities as well, Holi heralds the arrival of spring after winter. It signifies the victory of good over evil and is celebrated as a day of spreading happiness and love. The festival is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.

    Holi Is A Hindu Festival

    Holi is a Hindu festival that takes place every spring. It’s all about new beginnings — Holi welcomes the spring season and celebrates the end of winter. The Holi festival always falls on Purnima or the day of the full moon. It’s a two-day holiday; the day of the March full moon is Holika Dahan.

    Why do we play Colours in Holi?

    It is believed that Lord Krishna used to celebrate Holi with colors and hence popularized the same. He used to play Holi with his friends at Vrindavan and Gokul. They used to play pranks all across the village and thus made this a community event. Holi is a spring festival to say goodbye to winters.

    How did Holi begin?

    The origins of Holi come from a mix of Hindu mythology including the popular legend of Hiranyakashyap – a demon king who wanted to be immortal. He wanted everyone to worship him as a god but his own son, Prahlada, chose to worship Vishnu instead, which offended his father.

    What makes Holi special?

    This is why the first day of Holi is celebrated as Holika Dahan and symbolizes the victory of good over evil. In the region of Braj (where Lord Krishna grew up) in Uttar Pradesh, Holi is celebrated until the day of Rangpanchmi as a huge festival, in memory of the devotional love of Krishna and Radha.

    Is Holi a Hindu holiday?

    Holi is a popular Hindu holiday celebrated most commonly in India that is also known as the Festival of Colors. It celebrates the triumph of good over evil and the changing of the seasons from winter to spring.
