Significance of Festivals

Without festivals, the world would turn into a swamp where we would all lead the same boring lives. In India, holidays are substantially greater than practically any other event. They are the highlight of the year, and we eagerly anticipate them. People of various ages and socio-economic backgrounds find enjoyable family activities and methods to honor the divinities. In actuality, Indian festivals serve just as symbols of happiness and harmony. Every religious celebration in India has a history. The majority of festivals promote harmony and the triumph of virtue over evil. Reunited families enjoy a few fun days before returning to their routine life. They anxiously await the arrival of the Holy Festivals each year with the hope of seeing their loved ones again. InstaAstro presents you with a list of all the major holidays in the coming year.

Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga, Vara, and Karana are the five components of the Hindu calendar. They have a special meaning in astrology. The Moon moves farther away from the Sun by 12 degrees during one Tithi. Simply put, a Tithi is a lunar day, and the Hindu lunar calendar is related to the Tithi calendar. Although the duration of each lunar day varies, 30 tithis spanning Krishna Paksha (waning phase) Pratipada and Shukla Paksha (waxing phase) Purnima. The length of a Tithi may range from 21.5 to 26 hours.

In Hindu tradition, mahurat, or auspicious hours, are determined using tithis. There are fortunate and unlucky tithis, and each is considered more advantageous for particular goals than others. Knowing the difference between Nakshatra and Tithi is crucial when selecting a Muhurta since both impact our mental state. Venus represents one's mental condition, whether they are excited, tired, terrified, apprehensive, annoyed, or tranquil. Saturn and the air element Vayu Tattvaor rule the nakshatra. It foretells whether the experience the mind will have will be joyful or painful.
