A brief note on Ugadi Festival: Festivals are celebrated every
year in the remembrance of past events. All the major Hindu festivals have
their own purpose and significance, i.e., to show their relevance and
importance in the context of the eternal world cycle of history. India's
rich heritage with its numerous festivals celebrated throughout the year,
provides succour and faith, as each occasion has its own distinct value,
beauty and ritual practice. Amongst the numerous festivals of India, Ugadi
is celebrated with festive fervour in Maharashtra, Karnataka and Andhra
Pradesh. While it is called Ugadi in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, in
Maharashtra it is known as Gudipadava".

Griha Pravesh (i.e. first entry into the newly built house) is also as important aspect of Hindu cutoms After the house is complete in all respects, living in that house is started at some auspicious moment determined on astrological considerations. The first entry in the house at the auspicious moment is called Graha Pravesh ceremony.
When the house is ready to be occupied, a muhurta is selected for grihya pravesha which consists mainly of Ganesha puja (Ganapati), The mandala is drawn to invoke the gods and nine planets, which act as witnesses to the ceremony.
For any newly built house house warming is considered a holistic occasion. This custom is done so as to keep evil forces away from entering new home. Even after land acquisition, a prayer (puja) is performed which is called as "Bhumi Pooja",
CHAITANYA MAHAPRABHU Lord Sri Chaitanya MAhaprabhu was born in Sridhama Mayapura, Navadvipa in Bengal, on the Phalguni purnima of the year 1486. Born as the son of a learned brahmana, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was known as Nimai Pandit in his youth due to his unrivalled mastery of the Sanskrit Language and the Vedic literature. There was opposition to the movement of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu. On the one hand many so-called Hindus objected to the fact that he engaged everyone in chanting the holy name of the Lord without discrimination of caste, religion or social position; on the other hand, the Mohammedans felt that his processions were a threat to their social and political denomination. Inspite of all such obstacles, however, Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu established the fact that there is a universal religion for developing love for the one Supreme Lord who is the supreme controller of everyone and everything. The advent of Chaitanya is marked as the beginning of a new era in Bengal. The birth of the cult and the spirit of the REnaissance, almost synchronized with his arrival. The growth of vernacular literature in Bengal got a new fillip with his appearance. Beyond everything, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was a great lover of humanity. He was a friend of the poor and the wretched. His heart was always full of love and sympathy for them. As a great solac to the suffering soul and a healer to the bereaved, he proved himself strongly anti-communal and a life-long denouncer of untouchability and casteism.
