Ugadi is an important festival celebrated in the state of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana. It represents the beginning of the New Year or Nav Varsh asper the Hindu panchang. This year the festival will fall on the 2nd of April, coinciding with the Marathi festival of Gudi Padwa.
This festival is celebrated in Chaitra month, as per the Hindu calendar. According to the Gregorian calendar, it occurs during the months of March or April. The festival is known to herald the harvest season in the country and is celebrated with extreme enthusiasm primarily in the state of Karnataka.
The name Ugadi is a confluence of two words, namely, “Yuga” which means era in Sanskrit, and the word “Adi” which stands for beginning both in Kannada and Sanskrit. The festival is also popularly known as Chandramana Ugadi which stands for the new beginning of the New Year according to the Hindu lunar calendar. On the occasion of this auspicious festival, devotees observe religious rituals and shop to their hearts fill. People around the state partake in heavy shopping activities preceding the first month of the Hindu calendar, that is, Chaitra maas.
The festival of Ugadi holds a great deal of significance. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Brahma, who is deemed to be the creator of the world, is said to have created the universe on this day. The word “Ugadi” specifically refers to the era in which the current generation exists which is called Kalyuga. Some scriptures of Hinduism also make references to this day as Chaitra Sddha Paadyami.
The celebrations of Ugadi symbolize the oncoming of the spring season. It also welcomes the harvest season for the farmers of our country. Apart from this, the festival holds so much relevance because it is considered an auspicious day to start any new project. After performing religious rituals ascribed for the day, one can carry out their business transactions to excel and attain luck and prosperity.
The festivities of happy Ugadi are full of cheerful and enthusiastic fervor. People celebrate the day following different rituals. Here are some of the prominent ones:
The day is celebrated by making a special dish that depicts six different flavors, each for the different flavors of life. This special recipe is called Bevu Bella or Ugadi Pachadi. The word “Bevu” stands for bitterness while “Bella” means sweet. Mixing neem leaves with chili, tamarind, mango, jaggery, and salt, this dish is cooked. This dish has great symbolic meaning where each ingredient represents the different essence of life, as enlisted below:
All these different flavors are mixed together to represent life in its entirety, with all its ups and downs.
This festival is celebrated to mark the upcoming New Year. It is celebrated all across the nation, however, its name changes. Here are the different names associated with the Ugadi celebration:
This festival ushers in a celebratory spirit but it also holds a lot of relevance astrologically. According to the Hindu panchang or the lunisolar calendar, this day initiates a new astronomical cycle. The Earth is tilted on its axis and hence, this tilt allows the northern hemisphere to get the maximum amount of the Sun’s light. This period lasts for over 21 days that are set into motion from the day this festival is celebrated. Astrologically, this period is believed to re-energize the Earth and marks a new beginning for nature and its cycle, all thanks to the bountiful energy of the Sun. This festival thus is emblematic of the period when the Earth is getting energized.
It is well-known that Diwali is celebrated on the day that Lord Rama came back to Ayodhya after defeating the evil king, Ravana. However, it was on the day of Chaitra Paadyami, according to the Hindu calendar, that Lord Rama was crowned the king of Ayodhya. His Rajyaabhishek thus coincides with the day that Ugadi celebrations take place. This is why this day is considered so auspicious and is eagerly awaited for initiating all new projects.
