Hindu Festivals - Origin, Sentiments and Rituals presents two different facets of festivals. The first is on 'Hindu Festivals', for all followers of Sanatan Dharma. It depicts how the seasonal cycle of festivals and parvas blend with the daily life of Hindus, and how they inextricably link nature, dharma and vocation. The second facet, 'BAPS Swaminarayan Festivals', informs how some of these festivals are celebrated by BAPS followers, and yet still retain and bring back the flavour of old established traditions of Hindu festivals. This book conveys the purpose of festivals and the associated devotional rituals concerning puja of Paramatma and the deities related to festivals. It inspires Hindus to imbibe principles of dharma and bhakti latent in the festivals and consolidates their self-esteem and culture identity, spiritual strength and above all, faith in Parmatma.
