December Festivals

Before we celebrate the biggest festival in the world, Christmas, the month of December will set off with Gita Jayanti. The Bhagavad Gita is the most sacred and significant Hindu script influencing many people, and Gita Jayanti is Bhagavad Gita’s birthday. Gita Jayanti is celebrated by reading The Bhagavad Gita and talking about how it has benefited humanity even today with educated priests and scholars. Lord Krishna’s followers also fast on Ekadashi, and many songs of dedication are sung as they dance together. The important Hindu festival of Dattatreya Jayanti is celebrated on the Full Moon Night (Purnamasi) of the Margashirsha (Agrahayana) month. It is also known as Datta Jayanti. As per the scriptures, Lord Dattatreya symbolises the fusion of the three Gods of the Hindu male trinity (Trimurti), namely Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the nurturer) and Mahesh (Lord Shiva, the destroyer).
