Spirit Soul People's Party

Already in the gray past oervolkeren knew the festivities which continued for days, with religious ceremonies, played a key role. As time progressed and more people understanding and thus more control over nature, were also changed the character of many parties, which in greater or lesser extent been secularised, until they ultimately were folklorisch.
The evolution was also going through some major Indian festivals, which also Surinamese still be held in honor, namely: Holi, Divali, Rasksha Bandhan, Ramlila etc. Although of historical and religious origin, these festivals by a long tradition no longer purely religious celebrations, but typical festivals become.

This development is the celebration of these festivals is not the celebration of religion is limited, but the entire neighborhood participates. The strong folk lori technical nature of these parties is evident from the fact that many facets of Hindu culture are incorporated herein.

The Holi-holiday known as the dialectical name 'Paghuna' is, is a New Year party. For a good understanding of some knowledge is necessary. As with most religious calendars, it is also in the Indian calendar included with the lunar year, however, always with the solar year were brought into line.

Since the lunar year 354 days, 8 hours, 48 minutes and 34 seconds, while the length of the solar year civil year or 365 days, 5 hours, 49 minutes, create an annual deficit of almost 11 days.

It is run by approximately 2.5 years after an additional month or schrikkelmaand (adhikmas, malmas or laund) to welding. The Hindu calendar is thus a lunar month (mas) with synodische month, this is the time between two full manen.Hoewel the month synodische really 29 days, 12 hours, 44 minutes, 3 seconds, is for practical reasons the month up to 30 days. Each month begins with the first day after the full moon (pariva or Ekam) and ends with the day of the full moon (Purnima) and is divided into two halves, with the day of the new moon (Amavasya) boundary, namely the period of decreasing moon (dark Monday krishnapaksh or half) the period of the waxing moon (shukla-Paks or light half Monday).
The year ends with the full phalgum Monday of the month (February-March) and begins with the first day after the full moon of the month chaitra (March-April).

By Monday (tithi) and not the solar day (divas) the basis of the time is taken, and the tithi at any time of the divas can begin, it is often that a tithi extends over two divas, so there is a difference with the civil calendar is created.

Unity Festival

The New Year as the first day of a new year is not adopted, but has a deeper meaning and is an expression of Hindu unity philosophy. It is Holi, the festival is not a purely religious party, but has both a philosophical and a religious basis. Besides, in the Hindu culture has - in contrast to the western - never any fundamental conflict between the various manifestations of the spiritual life (religion, philosophy, science, art, mysticism) exist.

Since the beginning of their history, the Hindus an intense spiritual desire cherished. Thousands of years ago they came to the realization of the underlying inner unity behind the appalling variety of the latest phenomena. This unit is bright and ready sense expressed in the oldest literary work in the world, the Rig Veda, in which the creation hymn of Ekam Sad Ekam tasmaddhanyanna Parah (one outside which no other exists) and elsewhere of Ekam Sad vipra bahudha vadanti '(The real is One, the Wise Men call it by different names) is spoken.


It is therefore fully in line with this world - and human consideration, in which a man feels with nature, that the new year at the beginning of spring, and the Holifeest well Vasant-Utsav (spring festival) is called . Officially adopted, that the strength of the winter the fifth of the month Maghe (January-February) is uitgewoed. This day therefore the theoretical beginning of spring and is Vasant-Panchami aangeduid.Het on this day that Holika is planted, that the preparations for the feast began.

The principle of life is heat, cold is the symbol of death. If the new vibrant life out occurs, the bare trees with green leaves zipper lumbar beauty display, it is time for people to come ready to make with nature celebration. Indeed, the nature around man in deepest essence perfectly in harmony with his own inner nature, as so aptly expressed in the famous formula of the identity chhangdogya-Upanishads: 'Tat TVAM asi (That thou art).

Victory Day

Holi imagine making the death of winter (the cold and gloomy season) and the birth of spring (the flowers and warm season). The symbol of the victory of the warm and vibrant life on the cold forces of death. This is powerful cycle of sleeping and waking, of creation and decay, of death and live again, as a basis for time served. Disappear, for then rejuvenated and alive to return. The new year begins at a time when the nature of all its roads dormant life forces again demonstrated in the form of various colors and scents of leaves and flowers. And with nature celebrates the human party.
