The beginning of the twelfth month in the Hindu calendar coincides with Pisces Sankranti. It is the last month of the year and on this day the Sun enters the Pisces zodiac. This day is also known as Meen Shankaranam in Southern India. Like all other Sankranti festivals, donating material and receiving blessings on this day is considered auspicious. This day is celebrated in different ways according to the culture and it is said that donating land on this day is considered very important.
It is said that the sixteen Ghats that come after Sankranti are considered auspicious ghats. Many types of holy chanting and worship are performed in families to free themselves from the sins of the past. Bathing in the holy waters of the Ganges, Yamuna, and Saraswati is considered auspicious. Sankranti means the beginning of a new month according to all other Hindu cultures except Bengali and hence it is believed that good works should be done from that day onwards.
In 2021, Meen Sankranti is scheduled to fall on Sunday, March 14.
