May this festival of joy bind us together and the New Year bring
prosperity and happiness to all. March 25/26, 2001 is the beginning of the new year Shalivahan Shaka 1923 or Vikram Samvat 2057. The year is known as Vrisha (Vishu) Samvatsara.

Yugadi, The beginning of a New Year, celebrated on the first day of the first month- Chaitra, marks the beginning of spring or Vasant Ritu. The world was conceived and created by Lord Brahma on this day. New leaves and flowers bring the sight and smell; Fragrance of the mallige, sampige, jaji and suragi flower , the mango, and jackfruit in bloom fills the air. Soothing songs of the Kokila bird fills the ears. "Vasant Vishudhdhi" (Spring cleaning) is taken up earnestly by all. Yards and soil-floors are cleaned and plastered with fresh cowdung. Elaborate Rangolis reflect the brightness of the Spring.

How to celebrate Yugadi?

Without rushing to work, take an elaborate an oil bath in the morning; Wearing new clothes, Perform puja of your Ishta Devata; Invite friends and Feast; Exchange Yugadi greetings [ in Kannada, see below]

Dont forget the custom of eating Bevu-Bella (Neem and Jaggery) on this day. It is believed that the neem paset purifies the blood and helps build immunity against diseases and seasonal allergies. It is also symbolic of the dvandva (dual) nature of the life experience which is always mixed with happiness and sorrow, which must take cheerfully. In the words of Kuvempu, "Jeevanavella bevu bella-eradu savivavane kavimalla".
