Greetings for Makarsankranti 2015










Alok Banerjee




Makar Sankranti is a major harvest festival celebrated in various parts of India. According to the lunar calendar, when the sun moves from the Tropic of Cancer to the Tropic of Capricorn or from Dakshinayana to Uttarayana, in the month of Poush in mid-January, it commemorates the beginning of the harvest season and cessation of the northeast monsoon in South India. The movement of the earth from one zodiac sign into another is called Sankranti and as the Sun moves into the Capricorn zodiac known as Makar in Hindi, this occasion is named as Makar Sankranti in the Indian context. It is one of the few Hindu Indian festivals which are celebrated on a fixed date i.e. 14th January every year.

Makar Sankranti, apart from a harvest festival is also regarded as the beginning of an auspicious phase in Indian culture. It is said as the ‘holy phase of transition’. It marks the end of an inauspicious phase which according to the Hindu calendar begins around mid-December. It is believed that any auspicious and sacred ritual can be sanctified in any Hindu family, this day onwards. Scientifically, this day marks the beginning of warmer and longer days compared to the nights. In other words, Sankranti marks the termination of winter season and beginning of a new harvest or spring season.

To Hindus, the Sun stands for knowledge, spiritual light and wisdom. Makar Sankranti signifies that we should turn away from the darkness of delusion in which we live, and begin to enjoy a new life with bright light within us to shine brighter.

PS, This year due to change in the sighting of the sun, the festival is being observed on 15th January.

Dear All,

I have to inform you that this year the festival of MAKAR SANKRANTI will be celebrated on 15th January ’15, and not on 14th January’15 as has been printed in our calender. This has been confirmed by Shri Mayapati Shastriji today.


The inconvenience is regretted.

Hospital report : 1 sep – 18 nov 2014


Dear All,

I have pleasure to share with you an update on the activities of our Charitable Hospital, which is attached  herewith .

 You can see that all efforts are being undertaken to give emphasis on the charitable aspect through free eye operations , increased out reach programmes and free medical camps. But you will appreciate that all these activities needs financial support by one and all , as you know that our Hospital is largely dependent on donations from our members.

I therefore urge upon you to please come forward to support this big effort to serve the suffering humanity who need our help . This will go a long way to move forward on the spiritual path shown by Shree Babaji and followed by Shree Munirajji.
