Gudhipadwa (Samvatsararambha), that is, Chaitra Shukla Paksha Pratipada is the beginning of the New Year for Hindus. Since this is one of the three and a half Muhurts (Auspicious times) according to Ugadi Tithi Shastra, auspicious deeds are performed on this day or new activities are started. This day is considered auspicious for purchasing new items and starting new activities.
However, the country and the world are going through a transition period. The global pandemic, economic downturn, warlike conditions, etc. are all signs of adverse times. The next two-three years are going to be unfavourable in which the world is at risk of a huge loss of life and finances. Even bread, which is available in the market, could seem a luxury item. Considering this transition period, instead of spending money and time on buying new things or starting new activities on Gudhipadwa it would be better to spend time and money for making advance preparations to save lives keeping in mind the coming wars.
To create a welfare system for the world after these wars, it will be necessary to manifest the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ (Divine Rule) in the form of Ramrajya in India. Therefore, O’ Hindus ! Make a new resolution on this Gudhipadwa to establish the ‘Hindu Rashtra’ (Divine Rule) in India for the welfare in the world.
