Furthermore, Gudi Padwa, also known as Sanvsar Padwo, is a Hindu holiday celebrated by Marathi and Konkani Hindus. For Marathi and Konkani Hindus, this event is extremely important.

The religious significance of Gudi Padwa in Hindu Mythology:


Gudi Padwa celebrates the arrival of spring and the gathering of crops. It is a Hindu festival with a significant role in Hindu mythology. It has Hindu mythology connections that the Hindu people cannot overlook. According to legend, Lord Brahma created time and the universe on this day.

This day celebrates the epic of the Ramayana, especially when Lord Rama returns to his birthplace Ayodhya after defeating Ravana in a massive war. It is also a marker of the start of the Shalivahan calendar. Moreover, Gudi Padwa is linked with Lord Shiva's dance form in Maharashtra's rural areas.

The time of dusk just before morning, according to Hindu mythology and sacred Hindu literature, is extremely prosperous. This period is abundant with goodness and wonderful energy. As a result, anybody who prays to the Lord Sun at sunrise receives both strength and wealth. Also, those who pray to God for wealth, love, and long life.


Gudi Padwa customs and festivities:


People get up in the morning to sweep their courtyards clean in preparation for the celebration. The worship area is then covered in fresh cow dung.

Spring cleaning is another term for this. Later, women and men use various colors to create magnificent Rangoli patterns on the entrances. The brilliant hues of the Rangoli add to the allure of the houses. It's also referred to as the process of preparing for the arrival of spring.

Preparing traditional food offerings for the Gudi Padwa ceremony is also part of the celebrations. Gud chikki, jaggery, and pacchadi are among the foods. Because the sweets contribute flavor to the dish and neem adds health benefits, the neem leaves are an essential part of the offering.
