HINDU FESTIVAL DATES

Knowing festival dates is essential in planning programmes of study, arranging visits and accommodating student’s individual religious needs.   

The Hindu calendar is lunar-solar and dates vary each year, with up to a month between the earliest and latest possible dates (by our Gregorian calendar). 

Therefore, having an accurate and up-to-date calendar is essential

Please note: 
Hindu festival dates and times differ according to region, denomination and favoured astrological system.  Most dates vary by no more than one day. However, please double check them before organising trips or making other important decisions.   

While making every endeavour to ensure accuracy, we cannot take responsibility for mishaps that occur due to consulting our calendar.

TEACHING IDEAS

Teaching about Hinduism can be challenging and rewarding. The many categories of deities are sometimes confusing but can also be opportunities for profound discussion. Hindu philosophy is extensive, but most suitable for promoting critical, reflective thought. More than anything, Hinduism embraces all the senses, and makes for exciting learning!
