The approach to the subject attempted here in this book is both theoretical and practical. On the theoretical side it tries to give a brief history of the festivals their meaning and symbology. On the practical side it deals with the know-how connected with the conduct of those festivals. A list of some vratas commonly observed with brief descriptions given in chapter 6 it is hoped will enhance the value of the work. The epilogue contains some reflections and suggestions for the organizers of these festivals in public. The appendix will be especially useful to the devotees of the Ramakrishna tradition. Contents: General Introduction Vratas and Utsavas Major Festivals (Major Hindu Festivals) Other Festivals Jayantis or Birthdays A Few Vratas Commonly Observed Epilogue Appendix Index
