Why We Celebrate Hanuman Jayanti
 
Hanuman Jayanti is a Hindu religious festival that celebrates the birth of Shree Hanumanji, who is immensely revered throughout the world where Hindus reside.  According to legends, He was born as a monkey God to serve Shree Ram as the greatest disciple with utter and unflinching devotion. Hanumanji is the symbol of strength and energy, proven by His service and devotion to Shree Ram. He is said to be able to assume any form at will, wield celestial weapons, move mountains, dart through the air, and seize the clouds. Hanumanji is the only deity that cannot be troubled by negative energies.  During Hanuman Jayanti people observe a fast, meditate, practice charity, and recite various devotional hymns and prayers like the Hanuman Chalisa, repeating His glories and adventures!

Holi is the festival of colors. The festival is celebrated with much joy and vigor all over the world, especially in North India. Holi is not simply a festival; it is a tradition that dates back thousands of years that brings out the child in everyone!
 
The colorful festival of Holi spans over two days and marks the beginning of Spring. On the first day, known as day of “Holika Dahan”, fire is lit marking the victory of truth over evil. The second day is “Phag”, when the actual Holi is celebrated with vibrant colors and water. The festival bridges the gap between people of different communities and age group and is celebrated by embracing one another while smearing each other with colorful paint!
 
We wish you a Happy Holi and a wonderful celebration of life and its colors!

The Lohana Cultural Association of Canada was the brainchild of a very committed Community Member, Vinod Sodha. He came to Toronto in December of 1974 from Kisumu, Kenya. Embarrassed by a question from a visiting guest in the following year, who asked how many Lohanas lived in Toronto, he decided to hit the white pages and compile a list of “Lohana sounding names” with the help of Babubhai  Somani.
