Vishu Kani - First Auspicious Glimpse for a Happy and Prosperous new year ahead.

Today is Vishu, new year festival of Kerala which is celebrated generally on 14th or 15th April.  I started  celebrating Vishu after marriage, I love this festival and traditional ritual of setting  Vishu Kani. It is a beautiful spread of  many auspicious items, harvest produce around Lord Krishna statue/ picture. All family members watch the glimpse  of  Vishu Kani  as soon as they wake up early morning on the Vishu Day. Family members  straight walk towards Vishu Kani with closed eyes and open to witness the auspicious Vishu Kani sight. It is believed that this first divine glimpse will bring good fortune in the new year.   Viewing Vishu Kani  is a very beautiful and happy  experience. Vishu is not complete without Vishu Sadya, a delicious  vegetarian feast, I will share it  in another post.  These images of Vishu Kani are from  last year Vishu celebration.

On this very auspicious  occasion of Vishu, I wish  all my readers and visitors a very  healthy,  peaceful and prosperous new year.
