March isn't just for college basketball showdowns; it's for celebrating self-awareness, devotion, and the feminist spirit!

Shivaratri: A Night of Divine Vigil

 Shivaratri, or the Night of Shiva, honors the Hindu god, Shiva, the god of destruction and regeneration. People fast, meditate, and stay awake throughout the night, immersed in prayers and chants, seeking blessings and spiritual rejuvenation.

This Shivaratri, let's appreciate the feminine aspect of Shiva, known as Shakti. Just as Lord Shiva represents the masculine energy, Shakti embodies the feminine force. Together, they form a cosmic balance, reminding us of the equality and interdependence of the genders.  Learn more here

Holi: Splash, Laugh, Repeat!

Holi, the festival of colors, is a riotous celebration of life, love, and the triumph of good over evil. One of the most beloved Hindu stories about Holi is about little Prahalad, the son of a power hungry king who refused to worship his father, just like he demanded everyone.  Instead Prahalad chose to worship Vishnu, the kind god who believed in fairness and good choices. 

Holi also kicks off spring and what better way to celebrate spring then with splashing each other with color!    

Women's History Month: Celebrating Herstory

March isn't just about vibrant and meaningful Hindu celebrations; it's also the time to honor the incredible contributions of women throughout history. Women's History Month serves as a reminder to celebrate, acknowledge, and uplift the achievements of women who have shaped our world.

This Women's History Month, let's celebrate the unsung heroines who challenged norms, shattered glass ceilings, and paved the way for generations to come. From activists to scientists, artists to warriors, the stories of women are woven into the fabric of history.  Ancient Hindu teachings honor the goddesses and gods equally- why shouldn't mere mortals?
