Vaikasi Matham Tamil Calendar 2023

Vaikasi Month 2023

In the Hindu calendar, the month of Vaisakha occurs in April/May in the Gregorian Calendar. This month is considered the second month of the year in the Indian national calendar, and it is also the first month of many other calendars such as the Vikram Samvat, Odia, Maithili, Punjabi, Assamese, and Bengali calendars. The period between the second half of April and the first half of May falls under this month.

Regional calendars used in India have two types of months – lunar and solar. While lunar months commence with Chaitra, solar months begin with Vaisakha Sankranti. However, different regions celebrate the official new year at different times. For example, Maharashtra begins the official new year with the lunar year, but the solar year is celebrated with Vaisakha Sankranti. On the other hand, regions that start their new year with Vaisakha Sankranti give more importance to the beginning of the lunar year in Chaitra. The Vedic calendar refers to this month as Madhava, while it is called Madhushudana in the Vaishnava calendar.

The festival is typically celebrated with great enthusiasm and devotion, with devotees participating in various rituals and ceremonies to please their deity. This includes offering prayers, reciting hymns, and performing parades with beautifully adorned chariots. The festival is a time for people to come together and celebrate the triumph of good over evil, while also seeking blessings for their own lives.
