  • 1. Hindu Svayamsevak Sangh , Bruhaspati Shakha,Clarksburg, MDShake 1933 Calendar<br /> Introduction<br />In this calendar, you will find a regular calendar with the dates marked in English and in Devanagari. There are also fabulous pictures and some “articles” written by the Elementary School kids!!! (With some help, support, and encouragement from the parents) The articles tell you in more detail about some of the festivals in the Hindu culture. The calendar not only shows festivals but also when full moon is and when new moon is for each month.<br />The purpose of this calendar that the kids worked so hard on is to let the kids learn and understand about the Hindu festivals and the calendaring system. <br />The Shukla paksha or Shuddha Paksha Calendar<br />There are many calendaring systems in India but the one the kids will be using is called the Shukla paksha calendaring system. The Shukla paksha calendaring system is a system that began long ago, 2067 years ago to be precise. It was started by a king named Shukla paksha. The calendar is moon based. There are 14-15 days when the moon is waxing. This group of days is called Shuddha paksha or Shukla paksha. Then, there are 14-15 days when the moon is waning. This group of days is called Krishna paksha. The calendar starts on Nava Varsha Din. It is named in many ways such as Ugadhi, Gudhi Padava, Ishu.<br />
    • Words to NoteKrishna paksha Shuddha paksha/Shukla pakshaWaning: A time when the moon gets smaller.Waxing: A time when the moon gets bigger.
    Everybody has put a lot of effort into this project. We hope you will enjoy this Calendar (and its convenience) as we all did.<br />चैत्र शके १९३३ Chaitra Shake 1933Vikram Samvat 2067-2068April - May 2011Vasant Rutuसोमवार Mondayमंगळवार Tuesdayबुधवार Wednesdayगुरुवार Thursdayशुक्रवार Fridayशनिवार Saturdayरविवार Sunday१4Ugadhi/Gudhi Padava२5३6४7५8६9७10८11९12Ram Navami१०13११14Tamil New Year/ Varusha Paruppu१२15१३16१४17१५/१18२19३20४21५22६23७24८25९26१०27११28१२29१३30१३1१४2३०3754789654200<br />वैशाख शके १९३३ Vaishakh Shake 1933Vikram Sambat 2067-2068 May-June 2011Vasantसोमवार Mondayमंगळवार Tuesdayबुधवार Wednesdayगुरुवार Thursdayशुक्रवार Fridayशनिवार Saturdayरविवार Sunday१4२5३6Akshay Tritiya४7५8Adi Shankara Jayanti६9७10८11९12१०/११13१२14१३15१४16१५17Buddha Purnima१18२19३20४21५22६23७24८25९26१०27११28१२29१३30१४31३०1190501587500<br />center0Guru PoornimaFor Hindus around the world, Guru Poornima is considered a very special day.

Their names are Yudhisthira, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva.Yudhishthira was very wise and honest, Bheema was exceptionally strong and a good cook, Arjuna was very brave and skilled at archery, Nakula and Sahadeva are always very helpful and obedient, Nakula was very good in Astronomy, these are five expectionally talented brothers whose good nature made their kaurava cousins very jealous. Things only got worse when Duryodhana found that everyone wanted Yudhishthira as king. Duryodhana harboured intense hatred for the five brothers throughout his childhood and youth, and following the vile advice of his maternal uncle Shakuni, often plotted to get rid of them to clear his path to be the king of Hastinapur.Shakuni and Duryodhana gave money to some workers to construct a palace in Varnavata, which was built by incorporating flammable materials and sealing wax (lakha ghray). Duryodhana then successfully convinced this father Dhritarashtra to send Yudhisthira to represent the royal family in Varnavata during the celebrations of Shiva Mahotsava. The plan was to set the palace on fire during the night while Yudhisthira would likely be asleep. As Yudhisthira left for Varnavata, accompanied by his four brothers and mother Kunti, fortunately for the Pandavas, the plan was discovered by their uncle Vidura, who was very loyal to them and an extraordinarily wise man. Vidura arranged for a tunnel to be secretly built for the Pandavs to safely escape the wax palace as it was set afire. After their flee from the wax palace, the five brothers lived in the forests for some time, in the disguise of Brahmins where Bheema killed the bad demon Bakasura who was creating havoc among the kingdom of Ekachakra. Bakasura forced the Raja of the place to send him daily a large quantity of food, which he devoured along with the men who carried the food. Bhima volunteered to take the food for Bakasura and when he reached their for the delivery by not seeing the demon he started eating rice when Bakasura saw him eating his food he got mad and they broke into a big fight in which Bhima killed him.When Dhritarashtra heard that the five brothers were alive, he invited them back to the kingdom, however in their absence, Duryodhana had succeeded in being made the crown prince. Upon the return of the Pandavas, the issue of returning Yudhisthira's crown to him was raised. Dhritarashtra led the subsequent discussions and agreed to a partition of the kingdom "to do justice to both crown princes". He kept Hastinapura for himself and Duryodhana, and gave the barren and hostile lands of Khandavaprastha to the Pandavas. The Pandavas successfully developed their land and built a great and lavish/grand city which was considered comparable to the heavens, and known as Indraprastha.00The Pandavas are the five brave and famous sons of king Pandu, by his two wives Kunti and Madri.

Eventually, Shakuni made plan and invited Pandavas over for a game of dice (gambling). Shakuni was a master at gambling and owned a pair of dice which magically did his bidding and produced numbers desired by him, the terms of which were that the loser would be condemned to 12 years of exile into forests, and a 13th year to be spent incognito, and if the cover be blown during the 13th year, another cycle of 13 years would start. Obeying their uncle's orders, the Pandavas played the round, and again lost to Shakuni's cheating. During the 12 years of exile in the forest, they prepared for war. Arjuna performed penance and won the entire gamut of celestial weapons (Divyasatras) as boons from the Gods. The 13th year was spent masquerading as peasants in the royal family of Virata, the king of Matsya, where Bhima acted as cook, Draupadi was queens maid, Arjuna was an dance teacher to royal princess, nakul and sahadev were stable guards and Yudhisthira was royal adviser of the king. Queen’s brother (Keechaka) was a bad person who was bothering Draupadi, Bhima got mad at his behavior and killed him. When Duryodhana came to know about this he raised war against Virata in which Pandavas helped Virata win the battle.Upon completion of the terms of the last bet, the Pandavas returned and demand their kingdom to be rightfully returned to them. Duryodhana refused to turn Indraprastha over. For the sake of peace, and to avert a disastrous war, Krishna proposed that if the king agrees to give the Pandavas only five villages, they would be satisfied and would make no more demands. Duryodhana refused to part even with land as much as the point of a needle. Thus they declared a war against Pandavas and their supporters, for which the epic of Mahabharata is known most of all. It was their courage and skill that helped the Pandavas princes survive several evil plans of their cousins and their uncle Shakuni, together, the brothers fought and won in a great war against their cousins the Kauravas, which came to be known as the battle of Kurukshetra, where Lord Krishna recited Geeta.00Reeling under the loss of half the lands of his future kingdom, Duryodhana's jealousy and rage were further fueled by the Pandavas' success and prosperity at Indraprastha.
