May 17th 2024

Vasavi Jayanti is an annual Hindu festival celebrated in honor of the birth anniversary of Vasavi Mata, also known as Vasavi Kanyaka Parameshwari. This festival typically falls on the third day of the bright fortnight (Shukla Paksha) in the Hindu lunar month of Chaitra, which usually occurs in March or April according to the Gregorian calendar.

Vasavi Mata is revered as a symbol of virtue, sacrifice, and compassion. She is believed to be an incarnation of Adi Parashakti, the primordial cosmic energy, and is worshipped by devotees seeking blessings for prosperity, harmony, and protection from adversities.

On Vasavi Jayanti, devotees observe fasts, perform special prayers, and visit temples dedicated to Vasavi Mata. They offer prayers, light lamps, and chant hymns in praise of the goddess, seeking her divine grace and blessings.

The festival is marked by various rituals and ceremonies conducted at temples, including abhishekam (sacred bathing) of the deity, alankaram (decorating the idol), and bhajans (devotional songs).

Vasavi Jayanti serves as a reminder of the divine virtues embodied by Vasavi Mata and inspires devotees to emulate her noble qualities in their lives. It is a time for spiritual reflection, devotion, and seeking the blessings of the goddess for the well-being of oneself and others.
