Did You Know? - India Edition
In the Hindu calendar there are six climate seasons.
According to the lunisolar Hindu calendar, there are six seasons or ritus in a year. Since Vedic times, Hindus across India and South Asia have used this calendar to structure their lives around the seasons of the year. The faithful still use it today for important Hindu festivals and religious occasions.
Each season is two months long, and special celebrations and events occur during all of them. According to Hindu scriptures, the six seasons are:
Vasant Ritu: Spring
Grishma Ritu: Summer
Varsha Ritu: Monsoon
Sharad Ritu: Autumn
Hemant Ritu: Pre-winter (this is when the 2021 OC Partner Meeting will take place!!!)
Shishir or Shita Ritu: Winter
