Why do we celebrate festivals?
« on: January 19, 2010, 10:05:34 AM »
Some of us don\'t even know why we celebrate festivals in general. Just think whether we would go and pay our respect to elders if there is no celebration? First of all will we ever visit them at all!

But, above all there is some more special relevance for the celebration in India!

We give alms to poor people. We distribute edibles and sweets to neighbors and relatives.

We forget previous grudges with others and mingle which would pave a new path of relationship!

Without our knowledge we do a lot of remedies!

Do you know how?

We distribute sweets: in general it is Guru (Jupiter) preethi (remedy!)

Among sweets…

Laddus indicate Guru (Jupiter) preethi ! You know how?

•  round shape is that of Guru (Jupiter)
•  yellow color is that of Guru (Jupiter)
•  the besan (channa dhal ) with which it is made -is that of Guru (Jupiter)
•  the ghee which is the main ingredient as well as medium of cooking-is that of Guru (Jupiter)
•  sweet taste-is that of Guru (Jupiter)

In the same way Jangiri indicate Rahu preeti! How?

Urad dhal is the main cereal of Rahu preethi !

Every taste and every cereal indicate one planet or other! If we distribute or gift dresses/clothes- every color indicates a planet!

•  red is remedy of sun
•  white is remedy of moon
•  Orange/pink is remedy of mars /Kuja/ chevvai/ mangal.
•  green is remedy of Budha (Mercury)
•  yellow/cream color is remedy of Guru (Jupiter)
•  bright white is remedy of Venus (Sukra)
•  black is remedy of sani (Saturn)
•  blue is remedy of Rahu
•  Multicolor is remedy of Kethu!

In case you are gifting jewel to some one means…

•  Ruby is remedy of sun
•  white pears are remedy of moon
•  orange coral is remedy of moon
•  emerald/jade is remedy of Budha (Mercury)
•  yellow sapphire/gold is remedy of Guru (Jupiter)
•  diamond/American diamond/zircon is remedy of Venus (Sukra)
•  blue stone /iron is remedy of sani (Saturn)
•  Gomethagam is remedy of Rahu
•  Cat\'s eye is remedy of Kethu!

The remedies do not end with this!

When we wear best dresses we do Venus (Sukra) remedy!
When we wear gold jewel we do remedy of Guru (Jupiter)
When we eat best food we do Venus (Sukra) remedy!
When we use perfumes we do Venus (Sukra) remedy!
When we gift an umbrella or sandals (footwear) we do remedy of sani (Saturn)
When we give/gift books we do remedy of Budha (Mercury)
When we offer milk/milk sweet to others we do remedy of moon/Chandra!

There are many other remedies in day -to -day life, which we do or neglect to do without our knowledge!

Thus, give, give and give! Who knows? It may be a great remedy without your knowledge! Let us celebrate this Diwali though giving and by charity!

hindu festivals are formed to keep up human race\'s health both physically and mentally
the food they prepare for different festivals prove that point.
Also the order in which festivals come are indication of how a soul will travel (kundalini through 7 chakras) to achieve god

according to me we celebrate festivals to keep our mind occupied with some hurry/work/mind engagement with some happy though work activity ..... it\'s all a way to avoid in eradicate depression  ..... example in America only December is the month joy and lights are seen happiness is felt ... due to Christmas... full year it is dull  but in India full year lots of festival events to keep us being happy while we r busy ..... not much of way for depression .... so festivals are for joy environment
