Brusha Sankranti

Devotees in Odisha (Orissa) celebrate the day as Brusha Sankranti. The day begins by taking of ritualistic bath in rivers and sea. The special bath is known as Sankraman Snana which is undertaken as a mark of respect to the ancestors in the family and also as a mark of respect to the Sun God. Special prayers are offered by devotees of Lord Vishnu to appease him and seek his blessings for the family.

Devotees throng the bathing ghats in holy city of Puri, Odisha. Brusha Sankranti Snana is performed with full religious fervor in Puri and devotees seek blessings from Sun God on this religious occasion. The devotees also visit the Jagannath temple to seek blessings from Lord Vishnu.

Vrushabha Sankranti

Vrishabha Sankranti is commonly referred to as Vrushabha Sankraman in some parts of the country. Vrushabha is referred to as bull in Sanskrit. Lord Shiva’s carrier Nandi is also a bull and religious scriptures indicate a relation between the two of these.

While lord of Gods, Brahma is the creator of the world, God Vishnu (the ‘Paalak’) is responsible for taking care of entire universe and Lord Shiva (also known as Mahesh) is responsible for perishing it. Thereby equilibrium is maintained in the universe and a continuous cycle of living, existing, perishing and then again the re-birth keeps occurring.

Vrishabha Sankranti has great religious significance for the devotees and they make the day special by seeking the blessings of Lord Vishnu. People pray and plead that they live a better life without getting entrapped in ‘moh’ and ‘maya’ so that they are free from taking re birth and attain ‘moksha’ (salvation), on Vrishabha Sankranti.
