The New Almanac - Importance and Significance of Dassera

The dawning of the new Golden Age (Satya Yuga) will be accompanied by the gradual adoption of a new almanac, a new calendar. Just as 25th December and Easter are important Christian festival dates in the west and Krishna's birthday and Buddha's birthday are important festivals for the Hindus and Buddhists respectively of the east, so too will certain dates assume greater significance in later times.

One of these dates of new significance will be the birthday of Kalki Avatar (Parama Sadguru Shree Gajánan Maháráj of Akkalkot, India). In 1918, the year of Shree's birth, this day fell on 17th May. May 17 is also the day on which Jesus delivered His sermon on the mount. This date is already assuming some significance in western countries at places where Shree's message of Agnihotra and Fivefold Path are followed. Also, December 25th, traditionally celebrated as Jesus's birthday, was the day in 1941 when Shree's universal mission was revealed to Him by Divine will.

Agnihotra in the Harijan colonies of Kharagpur, West Bengal, India

In February, 2014 Abhay Paranjpe and Sanjay and Manisha Patil (photo right) visited the birthplace of Parama Sadguru Shree Gajanan Maharaj in Kharagpur, West Bengal.

Two families (the families of Gauri Shankar and Subodh Das) maintain the practice of Agnihotra in the Railway Quarter where Sonamata (mother of Parama Sadguru) used to stay with her father when she visited Kharagpur.

This Railway Quarter is quite close to the colony of Harijans (so-called 'Untouchables') in whose houses the great Saint Upasani Baba was residing in the year 1913. Part of His mission was to eradicate the curse of Untouchability which was destroying the fabric of Hindu society. Sonamata used to go with her father to this Harijan colony to feed and care for the poor. It was there at the age of thirteen, that Sonamata met her Guru, Upasani Baba. Five years later on May 17th 1918 she gave birth to the Light of the World.
