Festival of love


In our scriptures, different names have been allotted to different parts of kaam deva’s body. The eyes of Kaamdev have been termed as arrows whereas the eyebrows are beautifully described as bows. The best part is that they look peaceful and one can express his gestures easily through indications. The duration from 'Basant Panchami to Holi is termed as Ratikaam Mahotsav.

As Sun enters Aquarius zodiac sign, huge celebration of Ratikaam Mahotsav takes place. The celebration is beautifully described in Tamil as 'Sangam Sahitya'. The Sangam Literature was written in year 1st BC. Not only this, this festival is an indication of arrival of spring. During spring, the planet Venus highlights the intellect and its benefits. Venus also rules sex and beauty. Hence, Rati Kaam festival is considered high time for boosting fertility. Rati was the daughter of Daksh Prajapati and the wife of Kaamdev. Rati was born as a result of sweating of Daksha Prajapati. Our holy scriptures call her most beautiful women on earth. The husband of Rati- Shri Kaamdev is the lord of love and high sexual powers. He is called as the most handsome, young and attractive creature on earth. Basant is a very close friend of Kaamdev. Hence, his bow is made up of flowers. When arrow is released from this bow, it doesn't make any sound. This means whenever any person forms sexual bonding, he should carry it gracefully. Arrow is the most significant weapon. This weapon has three corners in three different directions which symbolises three different lokas. One of its corners is under the influence of Lord Brahma who is accountable for regeneration and birth of creatures. Second corner is under the influence of Shri Hari Vishnu who is responsible for 'Omkaar' or fulfilling the stomach requirements. This corner teaches us that we should perform our karmas. The third corner of Kaamdev is under the influence of Lord Shankar or Mahesh which symbolises 'Moksha'. The aim of the bow of Lord Kaamdev works in opposite direction as a result of which the whole creation runs. The living creatures are trapped in the jugglery of Lord Kaamdev and hence the universe is managed. In our holy scriptures, different parts of Lord Kaamdev's body have different names. The eyes of Kaamdev are termed as arrows whereas the eyebrows are described as bows. They look peaceful and one can express his gesture through indications. They do not require any support from any other body part. The duration from 'Basant Panchami' to Holi is termed as 'Ratikaam Mahotsav'. His forehead is like bow which offers instructions. Elephant and parrot are his vehicles. On the day of Anang Trayodshi, people worship the idols of Kaamdev and Rati and decorate them with flowers and five arrows in hands. It is celebrated as 'Anang Trayodshi' or 'Rati Kaam festival'.
