VIJAYA – TELUGU NEW YEAR 2013 – UGADI – GREETINGS: The Celebration of Spring Season.
Vernal Equinox – The Cyclical Flow of Time with alternating seasons In our Journey through Space, the Seasons repeat themselves at expected Time intervals, but our location is constantly changing and we may never arrive at the same location in the Space where we had an earlier experience of a particular Season.

Spring is season of the year between Winter and Summer. In the Northern Hemisphere it extends from the Vernal Equinox( day and night equal in length), March 20 or 21, to the Summer Solstice( year’s longest day ), June 21 or 22. The Seasons come with cyclical frequency at the expected time while planet Earth and the rest of the Solar system partake motion of Sun in the Milky Way Galaxy and their location in Space is never constant and is never the same. THE SPRING SEASON – A REASON FOR HOPE : 

Koel, the Nightingale of India is known because of its melodious call.
Spring Season brings a sense of Joy, uplifts the mood of man. The Joy could be compared to the sweetness of nectar  gathered by butterflies from various Spring Season flowers.

The arrival of Spring Season is a celebration of Joy in numerous cultures and human traditions. The reason for Joy is because of the Season giving a sense of Hope. The reason for Hope is that of rebirth, renewal, regeneration, regrowth, and rejuvenation. In Spring, we witness the plant and animal life getting revitalized. Things in Nature change with Time but Nature remains unchanged. Nature remains constant, immutable, unchanged, or eternal. Nature does not change as mass, energy, and momentum always remain unchanged. The Laws of Conservation stated by classical Physics state that mass and energy can be neither created nor destroyed. Each Law of Conservation signifies that Nature does not change with passage of Time. We have hope as Nature exists without change. There is hope that we can recover and renew and restart a process  broken or worn out. Nature’s ability to support and sustain Life is reflected in the operation of The Laws of Conservation and by  operation of the fundamental Force called Gravitation.

THE LORD OF THE SEASON – MADHAVAM  :    

 
The LORD of Spring Season Lord Madhava and the Spring Season is known as MADHAVAM. He accompanies His consort known as MADHAVI. She is  Personification  of  the Energy/Power/Force known as Compassion/Mercy/Grace.

The other name for Spring Season, known as Vasant or Basant  is MADHAVAM. Indian tradition describes ideas by attaching them to personalities. The person known as LORD MADHAVA is the consort of a person known as Goddess MADHAVI. She derives her name from the word MADHU which describes the nectar gathered by butterflies. Madhu is used to name the taste experience called Sweetness, the sweet substances like honey, sugar, Jaggery  and any alcohol derived by fermentation of sugars. The Sweetness gives Joy and Happiness and man can get easily addicted to its powerful intoxicating effect. The sweetness has to be experienced with a sense of restraint. Man experiences a sweet sensation called MADHURYA when he experiences MADHAVI as a FORCE/POWER/ENERGY called Mercy/Grace/Compassion. Spring Season is celebration called  MADHAVAM as Lord Madhava is the Controller of the FORCE/POWER/ENERGY of Mercy/Grace/Compassion described in Sanskrit language as KRUPA. Man exists at all stages of his life because of God’s Mercy, Grace, and Compassion.
