May 2023 Religious Significance

Every month of the year has special significance, and May is no different from that from the perspective of religion. Vaishakh, which is regarded as one of the most auspicious months, will mark the beginning of the month of May, while Jyestha will mark the ending of the May month. Both of these months are considered sacred in Hinduism. Vaishakh is the second month of the Hindu year because it starts on the Purnima Tithi of Chaitra month, according to the Hindu calendar. Vaishakh month in 2023 will begin on April 7, 2023 and end on May 5, 2023 with Buddha Purnima.

From a religious perspective, the month of Vaishakh is very auspicious for taking a bath in the Ganges and for performing charitable deeds, and good deeds performed during this period bring the individual numerous benefits. Vaishakh is referred to as the one which grants freedom from sinful acts in religious scriptures. By the way, there is a rule that requires worship of Shri Hari Vishnu during Vaishakh because this month is also known as Madhav month, which is just one of the names of Lord Vishnu.

But when Mahadev, Tridev, i.e Lord Brahma, is worshiped along with Lord Vishnu at the same time, it turns out to be particularly fruitful. A person gets freedom from every sin during this by offering Arghya to the Sun God each morning using a copper pot. Vaishakh month will end with Buddha Purnima and Jyestha month will begin.

The third month in the Hindu calendar, Jyestha, is regarded as being particularly significant. This month, which comes between May and June on the Gregorian calendar, is also known as Jet apart from Jyeshtha. However, in 2023, Jyestha month will begin on May 6 and end on June 4 with Jyestha Purnima. Let us inform you that each month’s name in Sanatan Dharma is based on the Nakshatra. Similar to this, the full Moon occurs in Jyestha Nakshatra which is why it is known as Jyestha month.

It is extremely hot during this period because the Sun enters Taurus in the month of Jyestha itself and is in a very powerful position. Additionally, it is also known as Jyeshtha due to the Sun’s dominance in this month. The significance of water to people is also explained during this month. Jyestha month is also highly valued in terms of worshiping the Sun God and receiving its benefits. Along with this, it is very lucky to worship Lord Hanuman on Tuesday, which falls in the Jyestha month. 

On the other hand, the Jyeshtha month is special in terms of fasting and celebrations because it coincides with important holidays like Shani Jayanti, Nirjala Ekadashi, and Ganga Dussehra. The festivals that will take place in May 2023 are now listed below, along with their days.

Religious Significance Of Fast And Festivals In May 2023

Mohini Ekadashi Vrat (01 May 2023, Monday): In the Sanatan Dharma, each of the 24 Ekadashis that occur throughout the year has a unique significance, and followers observe fasting on these days. The eleventh day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Vaishakh, when Mohini Ekadashi is observed annually, is regarded in this order as being particularly auspicious and fruitful. The devotee is set free from the bonds of illusion on this day by observing fast and worshiping Lord Vishnu, the world’s protector. Also, there is also an increase in family’s contentment and prosperity.    

Pradosh Vrat (Shukla) (03 May 2023, Wednesday): Every month, Hindus observe a variety of fasts, including the Pradosh Vrat, which is one of them. The Shukla day of every month and the Trayodashi date of Krishna, which is dedicated to Mother Parvati and Lord Shiva, are the days on which Pradosh Vrat is observed, according to the Hindu calendar. Religious texts claim that people who observe this fast are blessed with long life and excellent health. According to myth, devotees who observe Pradosh Vrat with a pure heart receive anything they desire. 

Vaishakh Purnima (05 May 2023, Friday): There are 12 full moon days in a year because according to Sanatana Dharma, there is a full moon every month. Vaishakh Purnima, also known as Buddha Purnima and Satya Vinayak Purnima, is one of these occasions. This full moon occurs during the month of Vaishakh, according to the Panchang, and is regarded as having particular significance for religious and charitable works. Buddhists commemorate Vaishakh Purnima, the day on which Lord Buddha was born, with great fanfare. On the occasion of this full moon, Dharmaraj is worshiped with devotion, and it is believed that by doing so, the people lose their fear of premature death.  

Sankashati Chaturthi  (08 May 2023, Monday): As one of the most well-known Hindu holidays, Sankashti Chaturthi is dedicated to the lord Ganesha, Vighnaharta who is always the first one to be worshiped. According to Sanatan Dharma, Lord Ganesha is regarded as the destroyer of the sufferings and sorrows of the devotees and Sankashti Chaturthi implies that Chaturthi is the destroyer of troubles, so to appease him, devotees observe Sankashati Chaturthi fast on this day. The worshippers fast from dawn to moonrise on this day. 

Apara Ekadashi  (15 May 2023, Monday): Apara Ekadashi, also referred to as Ajla, is regarded as being extremely fortunate and sacred. The Hindu calender states that Apara Ekadashi is observed on the eleventh day of the Shukla Paksha of the Jyestha month. The devotees receive wealth-grains and immense virtue by keeping fast on this Ekadashi. Apara Ekadashi fasting has the same impact as traveling to Kedarnath and Badrinath. According to popular belief, Shri Krishna himself in the Dwapar Yuga gave the Pandavas a description of this Ekadashi.   

Vrishabh Sankranti  (15 May 2023, Monday): Sankranti is the name given to the celebration of the Sun God entering a new zodiac sign. The Sun changes signs a total of 12 times per year. As a result, there are 12 Sankranthi in total per year. The Hindu calendar designates the entry of the Sun from Aries to Taurus as Vrishabha Sankranti. For all religious activities, the day the Sun changes signs is deemed lucky. 

Masik Shivratri (17 May 2023, Wednesday): Both the Mahashivratri event and the Masik Shivratri are devoted to Lord Shiva in the Sanatan Dharma. According to the Hindu calendar, the Masik Shivratri festival is observed on the Chaturdashi date of the Krishna Paksha of every month. It is believed that fasting on Masik Shivratri will help one find solutions to their greatest issues. Lord Shiva is worshiped with rituals on this day. 

Jyeshtha Amavasya: (19 May, 2023, Friday): Amavasya Tithi is believed to be extremely auspicious for acts of kindness, charity, and tarpan, among other things, carried out for the tranquility of ancestors. One of these is Jyeshtha Amavasya, which is named for the month of Jyeshtha in which it occurs. This date is made even more significant by the fact that it is also known as Shani Jayanti on the day of the new moon in the Jyestha month. North Indian women who are fortunate also observe the Vat Savitri Vrat on this day in hopes of their husbands living long lives.  

Nirjala Ekadashi (31 May 2023, Wednesday): All the Ekadashis that fall throughout the year are compared to Nirjala Ekadashi, which is seen to be the most significant one. Bhima observed Nirjala Ekadashi fast under Maharishi Vedvyas’ command, which is why it is also known as Bhimsen Ekadashi.  It is one of the harshest fasts in a year because the Nirjala Ekadashi fast is observed without drinking water from sunrise until the sunrise on Dwadashi Tithi. The person receives the fruits of Ekadashis falls in a year by keeping the Nirjala Ekadashi fast.
