The significance of the Vedic New Year is explained in detail. It is tradition to celebrate with fruits, nuts, jewelry, flowers, rice, and coconuts.



Celebrating the beginning of a new year has its own importance in most of the traditions around the world. Let us explore the Vedic New Year in detail.


What is the Significance of the Vedic New Year?

In Vedic tradition, the significance of the Vedic New Year is that it marks the first day of the Tamil year. It is on April 14 according to the Gregorian calendar. It is called ‘Tamil Puthaandu’ in Tamil.

The Sun, the supreme of energy, enters the first zodiac sign of Aries on this day. It is the time when the Sun gains its highest power and allows nature to be very powerful as well.

Hence, the Tamil New Year is the ideal time for us to join with nature and receive the energy showered on us and celebrate new beginnings to make our lives blossom.


How is the Vedic New Year Celebrated?

To mark the new beginning, on the day of ‘Tamil Puthaandu,’ it is a traditional practice to  welcome the year by viewing fruits, nuts, gold and silver jewelry, flowers, rice, and coconuts arranged on a silver plate.

It is believed that when we see such energy-filling gifts from nature to begin with, our lives will also be full of fortune and joy.


What is Your Expectation for the Vedic New Year?

In general, we all desire overall prosperity and success in our lives.

Specifically speaking, you might have health ailments, marital / relationship issues, or any other particular kinds of problems in your life, and you might be looking for the appropriate time to welcome fortune, prosperity, abundance in your life.

You may be facing some difficult situations in life due to karma or sins and might be expecting a peace in totality.

The Tamil New Year would be one such occasion during which you can turn the entire year in favor of you.


How You Can Make Your Vedic New Year Successful

There are specific ceremonies and rituals like Fire Labs, poojas for the Gods and Goddesses, coconut smashing, fruits and flowers offering, and ghee lamp lighting at power spots. Some of the important rituals for the new year include:

  • Conducting Fire Labs to invoke specific archetypes and seek their blessings

Dr. Pillai, says, “The Sun is not simply just a celestial object, a star, but he is very much our breath, very much our consciousness, very much our life.

Everything is dependent on how our brain works, and there is an opportunity for the entire month of Aries.”
