Vasant Panchami: Day of the celebration of nature
In Vasant Panchami, the sun is Uttarayan, which gives the message that we should be as serious and sharp as the sun. In all the seasons, spring is the season in which the fertility of the earth increases compared to all the seasons. During this time the crop ripens. New plants grow in trees.
Vasanti color is considered auspicious in Hinduism. Vasanti color (yellow) is pure and reflective of sattvic tendency. It is also a symbol of simplicity and cleanliness. It is also believed about Vasant Panchami that on this day Shiva agreed to marry Parvatiji. Shiva's passion was on this day.
This festival of worship of Veenavadini Maa Saraswati brings the message of the flow of cool-cool air, the communication of new enthusiasm with the yellow chunari of nature. Maa Saraswati likes white color and rice symbolizes positive energy. That is why rice is offered to Maa Saraswati on this day.
On this day, wearing yellow clothes, yellow rice, yellow raita, vasanti puris, yellow laddus, and saffron kheer are made along with wearing yellow clothes.
The influence of Venus is highest during the spring season. From the point of view of astrologers, Venus is a factor of work and beauty. Hence this period is considered as Rati-Kama Festival. It is believed that during this season, Kamdev travels the earth with his wife Rati. Vasant Kamadev is a dear friend of Madan and Kamadev awakens the spirit of people on earth.
Vasant is called Rituraja i.e. the king of all seasons. Vasant Panchami means the day of celebration of nature. This day's Muhurta is considered an Abuja Muhurta. Abuja is a Saavah, that is, there is no need to get a Muhurta out of a Pandit for marriage. This day is considered to be special in itself and the auspicious work done on this day provides auspiciousness throughout life, that is why many couples get tied up in the knot.
