Hindu Festivals

Hinduism almost certainly has a longer list of festivals than any other religious tradition, and there are considerable regional and denominational variations.

Festivals are generally times for celebration and remembrance.Other purposes are:

  • To create a special atmosphere, diverting the mind from worldly concerns and joyfully focusing on spiritual matters.
  • To invoke the soul's natural qualities by creating an environment replete with auspiciousness and the abundant gifts of nature.
  • To give people spiritual impetus and inspiration, which helps them perform their daily duties.
  • To dovetail the natural tendency for celebration with spiritual goals.
  • To forge a healthy sense of belonging by peacefully bringing together individuals, families and communities.
