సంక్రాంతి పండుగ యొక్క విశిష్టత Importance of Sankranti || Makara Sankranthi Special || By Dr Anantha Lakshmi
History of Sankranti Pongal. Significance of Makara Sankranti Festival (Pedda Panduga) By Dr. Anantha Lakshmi Makara Sankranti is the day when the Sun begins its movement away from the Tropic of Capricorn and towards the northern hemisphere and thus it signifies an event wherein the Sun-God seems to remind their children that ‘Tamaso Ma Jyotirgamaya’—may you go higher and higher, to more and more Light and never to Darkness. To Hindus, the Sun stands for knowledge, spiritual light and wisdom. Makara Sankranti signifies that we should turn away from the darkness of delusion in which we live, and begin to enjoy a new life with bright light within us to shine brighter and brighter. We should gradually begin to grow in purity, wisdom and knowledge even as the Sun does from the Day of Makara Sankranti.
