May Festivals

The fifth month of the Gregorian Calendar, May, is a month of many Indian Festivals, including Akshaya Tritiya and Sita Navami. Let’s see what else it has to offer to our Festival Calendar. Akshay Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, this glorious day is considered favourable for new beginnings and activities in India. It is said that buying new furniture, vehicles, or things and starting a new venture on this day increases prosperity in life. For those planning to buy Gold, wait till Akshaya Tritiya and purchase on this holy day. Then there is Sita Navami. Sita Navami is celebrated as the birthday of Sitadevi, the embodiment of Goddess Lakshmi and wife of Lord Rama. May also brings Buddha Purnima, the birth anniversary of Gautam Buddha. Buddha Jayanti is recalled as the voyage of Lord Buddha’s birth, attainment of Nirvana, and demise. Hence, this day is a colossal festival among the followers of Buddhism across India.
