Basant Panchami 2018: Basant Panchami is one of the most auspicious festivals for the Hindus which marks the onset of spring. The festival falls on the fifth day (Panchami) of the fortnight (Shukla Paksha) of the lunar month of Magh. This year the festival will be on January 22, 2018. During this time of the year, people in the fields enjoy the abundance of their crops including ripened mustard flowers, giving it a beautiful yellow glow which marks the arrival of Vasant Panchami. All over the country, people celebrate this festival by performing Saraswati Puja– Goddess of knowledge, music, art, wisdom, learning, philosophy, creativity and nature. According to Drikpanchang, the Panchami Tithi begins at 3:33 pm on January 21 and will end at 4:24 pm on January 22, 2018. The celebration of Vasant Panchami can be traced back to Dwapara Yuga. As per the authority of scriptures like Srimad Bhagwatam and other Vaishnava scriptures, the transcendental Vasant ras lila took place on this night on the Govardhan hill. The place came to be known as Chandra Sarovar. It is also mentioned that Lord Chandradev stood still for one night of Brahma to take darshan of this divine dance of Sri Krishna and his beloved gopis, headed by Srimati Radharani, as per IE.
