bhaadarvo maas of the present vedik
calendar year of 2058 is the 11th lunar month. One more month to go to complete
the vikram savant 2058 with navaraatri
and divaali celebrations.
bhaadarvo month is most remembered for its 15-day
SShraaDdh period in the second half of the month. In this period,
vedik peoples offer prayers and pitru-food and gift offerings to propitiate
all those who are called pitru (forefathers)
who reside in pitru-lok. These pitruo
are the ones who assist to sustain welfare of this creation with their
designated roles. There are three classes of pitruo:
aadi-devo, pitru-devo and pitruo.....
bhaadarvo maas also celebrates the birthdays of ganesh,
vaaman avataar which is vishnu-dev's 5th avataar to
uphold dharma, dadhichii-muni.....also
maun-vrat is undertaken in this
month...to observe and further the lifestyle of silence with brhmah...
which is really good for those of us who talk for no reason....
