Hindu Festivals- Celebrating Life

Significance of Hindu Festivals

Hinduism teaches that life is a constant state of celebration. Being the most ancient religion of the world, Hinduism promotes celebrating every act and event of creation that links us to our past.

When Hindus celebrate a festival they are basically praying and participating in rituals and traditions for removing misery from their lives. Most of the prominent festivals in Hinduism carry a historic tale of the gods defeating the demons which is supposed to motivate mankind to introspect and overpower the tamasic tendencies by their sattvic tendencies.

The english word “festival” translates as “Utsava” in Sanskirt. Utsava is formed from ‘ut’ meaning ‘removal’ and ‘sava’ meaning ‘misery’.
