Vrischika Sankranti – Worshipping the Sun God

Vrischika Sankranti is the festival to offer prayers to and worship Surya, the sun god. The name Vrischika Sankranti is a combination of two Sanskrit words “Vrischika” and “Sankranti”. “Vrischika” means “Scorpio zodiac sign” and “Sankranti” means “transmigration of the sun from one zodiac sign to the next”. Hence, it is the festival which marks the movement of sun from Libra zodiac sign to Scorpio zodiac sign. It is believed that such transition helps the sun to regain its energy.

Rituals

People celebrating Vrischika Sankranti are supposed to wake up early in the morning, take bath and wear neat and clean clothes. They offer water to the sun during sunrise. While doing so special mantras are to be chanted by the devotee. The day is considered as very auspicious to perform rituals for the ancestors and forefathers. Donations and charities are also regarded as very important on this day as it is believed that such great deeds pleases Surya and he blesses his devotees with great joy and happiness. The most ardent followers of Surya read Hindu religious scriptures and books especially VishnuVishnuVishnu

Sahasranama and Aditya Hrudayam as this is believed to bring warmth and harmony among people.

Significance

Vrischika Sankranti is regarded as the day when the people pray and thank Surya for his blessings and all the benefits which living beings are provided with. Sun is the ultimate source of energy for earth and it is considered as our duty to thank the deity and show respect by performing some simple rituals. The festival signifies the engendering of great changes in our life.
