Pesach Sameach – Happy Passover! This festival of liberation and return began April 15, and continues until April 23. We are also at the end of Holy Week in the Christian tradition as we approach Sunday’s Easter celebration of renewal and resurrection. And, this week we are in the midst of Ramadan, the Muslim festival which began on April 1 and continues through May 1. How wonderful it is that this time is a holy period for all three of the world’s Abrahamic faiths.
In addition to the holidays above, the Tamil New Year was celebrated on April 14. According to the Tamil-Hindu calendar, New Year named Subakrith has come in! This is the 36th named year in a cycle of 60 named years. Subakrith (Sanskrit) means “Good Deeds” or “Auspicious Deeds”. Click this link to know more about Subakrith and how it is tradionally celebrated by Hindus of Tamilnadu, India (the state from which Muthu hails).
