(Excerpts from Satsang of Pujya Bapuji)
This festival is meant for all those who are ignorant of their True Self
Rishi Panchami is observed on the fifth day after the new moon in the Bhadrapada month (August – September). In 2011, Rishi Panchami is on September 2. Rishi Panchami is of great significance It is also the day to show respect to the Sapta Rishis – the seven sages.
It is told to remember the seven Great Sages Rishis like Kashyap, Atri, Bharadwaj, Vishwamitra, Gautam, Jamadagni and Vashishtha.
The idea behind observance of Vrata on this day is to express respect, gratitude and remembrance of the deeds of those ancient Rishis who devoted their life for the cause of society. If performed by women it is believed, that any ill deeds which they might have committed and the mistakes done, will be washed out by doing this Vrata.
