May 2024 Religious Significance 

We are all aware that each month holds special religious significance. Here we will discuss the month of May, so first we will look at the May calendar. According to the Hindu calendar, Vaishakh is the second month of the Hindu New Year, starting after Chaitra. Let us inform you that the month of Vaishakh will begin in May 2024 and end in Jyeshtha. According to the Gregorian calendar, it falls in April or May. This month is also considered to be particularly significant from a religious standpoint. In 2024, the month of Vaishakh will begin on April 24 and end on May 22. 

Many major religious festivals, such as Akshaya Tritiya, Varuthini Ekadashi, Sita Navami, and Vrishabha Sankranti, take place during the month of Vaishakh. On the day of Akshaya Tritiya in Vaishakh, Lord Vishnu took various incarnations, including Nar-Narayan, Parashuram, Narasimha, and Hayagriva. In addition, during the Navami Ashtami of Shukla Paksha this month, Goddess Lakshmi manifested on Earth as Mother Sita. Aside from that, it is believed that Treta Yuga began in the month of Vaishakh. Because of the holiness of this month, the dates of Vaishakh are associated in folk traditions with the opening of temples to various gods and goddesses, as well as festival celebrations.

Not only that, but the doors of Badrinath Dham, one of the four Dhams in Hinduism, are opened on Vaishakh’s Akshaya Tritiya. Rath Yatra is held in Jagannath Puri on the second day of Shukla Paksha this month. There is also a practice of worshiping Dev Vriksha Vat on the new moon day of the Krishna Paksha in Vaishakh.

Now let us go on to the Jyeshtha month. Jyeshtha is the third month of the Hindu year. This year, Jyeshtha will begin on May 22nd, 2024 and end on June 22nd. Jyestha is the hottest month since the Sun shines so brightly. This explains why individuals in Jyeshtha appear to be suffering from the scorching heat. Jyeshtha is the name given to this month because of the Jyeshtha of the Sun. During this time, Sun and Varun Dev are highly revered. Bathing, charitable and religious activities, and so forth are considered auspicious in Jyeshtha.

Jyeshtha month has a major significance in science as well.

Furthermore, protection from heat-related problems is required, and consuming green vegetables, sattu, and juicy fruits can be beneficial at this time. 

Note: The names of each month in the Hindu calendar are based on the constellation of stars. Every month changes according to the lunar cycle, and the constellation in which the moon appears on the full moon day is named after that constellation. Thus, on the full Moon day of Vaishakh month, the Moon is in Vishakha Nakshatra, which is why this month is termed as Vaishakh.
