Sawan 2023: Discover the Significance of Shravan, Rare 19-Year Coincidence, and Sawan Somwar Dates

The festival of Sawan or Shravan is fast approaching, commencing on July 4 and lasting until August 31. This year, Sawan holds special importance due to a rare occurrence happening after 19 long years.

The Significance of Sawan or Shravan

Dedicated to Lord Shiva, the holy month of Sawan, also known as Sravana or Shravan, is highly revered by Hindus, especially Shiva devotees. This auspicious occasion is marked by spiritual devotion, fasting, and celebrations among millions of Hindus in India and around the world. Sawan typically falls during July and August, coinciding with the arrival of the monsoon season in India. The monsoon rain is considered a blessing from Lord Shiva, symbolizing the rejuvenation of life.

When is Shravan or Sawan in 2023?

In 2023, Shravan will commence on July 4 and continue until August 31. This year, the month of Shravan will span 59 days, encompassing eight Sawan Mondays or Somwars instead of the usual four.

The Special Significance of Sawan in 2023

Sawan in 2023 holds exceptional significance due to a rare occurrence - the celebration of Shravan lasting for 59 days. This extended duration has sparked excitement among Hindus, making this year particularly auspicious. Such a prolonged period is a rare phenomenon that last took place 19 years ago. According to astrological calculations and the Hindu calendar, the Adhik Maas or Mal Maas has extended the length of the Sawan month this year.

This ritual involves devotees of Lord Shiva carrying holy water from rivers in small pots called Kanwars. They wear saffron-coloured clothes and embark on foot to sacred places associated with Lord Shiva, symbolizing their unwavering devotion and dedication.

Engaging in Sawan's joyous festivities and rituals provides an opportunity for Hindus to deepen their spiritual connection, seek blessings, and embrace the divine grace of Lord Shiva.
