Chetar Sangrand (Chetra Sankranti)
Chetra Sankranti marks the transition of the Sun from the Pisces zodiac sign to the Aries zodiac sign, which usually falls on or around April 14th every year. This auspicious occasion is celebrated with great enthusiasm and zeal in many parts of India.
In Sikhism, Sankranti or Sangrand do not hold any special significance as such, but they do hold spiritual and cultural importance in the lives of Sikhs. Sankranti aka Sangrand is considered to be an auspicious occasion, and many Sikhs observe these days by offering prayers and performing kirtan.
On this day, people wake up early in the morning, take a holy bath, and offer prayers to the Sun God. It is believed that offering water to the Sun during sunrise on this day brings good health, prosperity, and happiness.
People also prepare and enjoy delicious traditional delicacies with their family and friends. In some parts of India, community fairs and events are organized, showcasing the vibrant culture and traditions of the region.
Chetar Sangrand reminds of the importance of new beginnings and the endless possibilities they bring. It is a time to let go of the past, embrace the present, and look forward to a bright and promising future.
Barah Maha of Chet Month
Chaitra (Chetar, Chet) is 1st Month in Barah Maha Manjh [March-April]
With the dawn of Chaitra, let us call on Govind, the Harbinger of joy.
We are Ushered into His Realms by men of piety.
Call on Him, my tongue,
For, they who Realise Him, their Lord, make purposeful their earthly sojourn,
And denied His Grace, life wastes itself away in void. ‘
For all is He-on lands, in waters, in spaces and stars, and woods and dales.
How painful it is, therefore, to lose His grip?
Fortunate are they who Realise Him in themselves.
Oh, how my soul craves and yearns for His Vision,
In the month of Chaitra!
I take to the Feet of him who Unites me with my Lord.
