Chatur Masam

Chatur Masam is the four holy months in Hindu tradition and the Vrata is followed throughout India by many Vaishnava communities. Chatur Masam begins on July 4, 2017 ends on October 31, 2017. The holy period is for four months and it begins from the Deva Shayani Ekadasi in Ashada month and ends on Utthana Ekadasi in Kartik Month.
Some Hindu communities start the Chatur Masam on July 31 on Ashada Purnima (Guru Purnima).
The four months is of great importance to Sri Hari devotees as this period is believed to be the night time of Vishnu. Srihari Vishnu goes into deep slumber during the period.
The four months occurs during the monsoon season and most of the important festivals in Hinduism take place during this period. Numerous different times of Upvaas and rituals are observed during this period.

Swami Vivekananda – Words to Think

For the world can be good and pure, only if our lives are good and pure.

Everyone has to die, the saint or the sinner, the rich or the poor. The body never remains for anyone. Arise and awake and be perfectly sincere.

Every evil thought or deed or hatred, or any other thought or reaction if it is controlled, will be laid in our favor. It is not that we lose by thus restraining ourselves; we are gaining infinitely more.

Really good and evil are one and the same, and are in our mind. When the mind is tranquil neither good nor evil affects it…We must find we are beyond good and evil.
Swami Vivekananda
