Significance of Aippasi Month 2023
At dusk, the first celestial body to grace the night sky is Ashvini, which symbolizes the head of Aries in Indian astrology and is considered the foremost of the 27 Nakshatra. In Hindu mythology, Ashvin, which refers to the divine twins, is associated with the gods of Ayurvedic medicine, sunrise and sunset glows, vision, and the prevention of sickness and misfortune. Asawin is the Thai version of Ashvin and denotes a warrior. When translated into English, it is frequently interpreted as “knight”. During the period of twilight, the Ashvins are said to embody the “merging of light and darkness.”
