O Hindus, celebrate New Year on Chaitra Shukla Pratipada !

“When I read the Bhagavad-Gita and reflected about how God created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.” – Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein’s quote is very significant for everyone, especially, Hindus. He was neither born a Hindu nor did he practice Hinduism; still he could understand the essence of Hindu Dharma. Like him, there are many other famous people who have realised that Hindu Dharma offers much more than any other religion.

In any Scripture of Hinduism, neither December 31 nor January 1 has been mentioned as the day when this universe was created. In ancient times (a few thousand years ago), December 31 or January 1 did not exist. No one celebrated these days as the New Year. In recent years, due to the influence of Christianity, December 31 and January 1 came into existence, followed by its celebration as the New Year.

In contrast, Sages from Hindu Dharma have studied the creation of universe deeply and with their Divine abilities, they have precisely identified the day when the universe was created. They have also calculated the total time span that has passed by, and when the complete dissolution of universe will occur.

Therefore, as a follower of Hindu Dharma, celebrating December 31 and January 1 as New Year’s Eve and New Year Day respectively is like celebrating a birthday on any random day than on the correct birth day.

Forum for Hindu Awakening urges all Hindus not to celebrate New Year’s Eve on December 31 and New Year Day on January 1; because it is not only incorrect but it has a spiritually harmful impact on people and the environment.

Be proud of your Hindu Dharma; celebrate New Year on Chaitra Shukla Pratipada, when this universe was actually created.

Practical tips

  1. We may come across situations where our non-Hindu friends or colleagues may ask us why we are not celebrating New Years eve; we can proudly tell them about the creation of the universe and spiritually adverse impact on December 31 and January 1. If it is not possible to explain it, we can simply tell them that our New Year falls in March-April, similar to Chinese New Year.
  2. If the non-Hindu friends or colleagues are interested, they can be invited to celebrate the New Year on Chaitra Shukla Pratipada.
  1. New Year celebrations
  2. Creation of the Universe
  3. Harmful incidences during the New Year celebrations
  4. Celebrate New Year in spiritually beneficial ways
  5. Spiritual impact on December 31
  6. Westernisation and celebrating New Year on January 1 resulting in loss of Hindu identity
