Ganesh Chaturthi festival commemorating the birth of Sri Ganesha which is marked with the installation of His clay idol. Observances include chanting of Vedic hymns and Hindu texts and prayers and the vrata (fasting). Offerings and prasada from the daily prayers, that are distributed to the community, include sweets such as modak as it is believed to be a favourite of Ganesha.
Akshaya Tritiya is considered auspicious in many regions of India and Nepal for new ventures, marriages, expensive investments such as gold or other real estate, and all new beginnings. It is also a day of remembrance for deceased relatives. This day is also significant for women who pray for the well-being of their husbands if they are married, or for their future husbands if they are not married.
On the festival of Ram Navami, we commemorate the birth of Lord Rama. The Vedic scriptures testify that Lord Vishnu assumed his most beautiful and attractive form as Lord Ramachandra to perform his divine play of setting new foundations to the virtues of culture, heroism, integrity, morality, good governance, humility and renunciation.
