Paryaayaa Fest

There is a town known as Udupi in Karnataka state in southern India. Though not very widely known, this town is of great spiritual significance to Madhwaas. It is privileged to have a legendary Krishnaa temple. This temple deity is served by Heads of Madhwaa Mutts on rotational basis. When the responsibility is handed over from one Head to the other, a splendidly divine festival known as Paryaayaa is held.

Sun Fest

Day before yesterday was an auspicious day for Hindus in some regions of India. It was a day when Soorya Naaraayanaa was worshipped. I'll provide links that can explain the significance of the 3 days fest when I find time.
