SIKH THEOLOGICAL NOTES
From today that is the ਮਾਘੀ ਦੀ ਸੰਗਰਾਂਦ ( first day of the month Maagh) till ਹੋਲਾ ਮਹਲਾ (Sikh festival displaying martial skills), Sikhs will celebrate the season of Basant or Spring. This is the month of healing of body, mind and spirit ( ਤੀਨੇ ਤਾਪ ਨਿਵਾਰਣਹਾਰਾ ). A special prayer called Basant Kee Vaar has been recited for blessings of all-around health by the 5th Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Arjan Dev ji.
Sikh Gurus prepare a Sikh for the new year which will start at the beginning of ਚੇਤ Chet by giving him or her refreshing blessings of health of body, mind and soul in the month of ਮਾਘ Maagh.
At the beginning of ਚੇਤ Chet and at the time when the threshold of the spring season has already blessed the world, Sikhs will begin their new year !! Further spiritual messages at Chet further enrich the Sikhs.
