SitaRam Festival


Another festival in August and September is called either Coya, Quya Raymi or Situa. It is celebrated to ward off sicknesses that were common at that time of year.

During Coya people dressed for battle, went out into the streets and hoped to leave or get rid of evil spirits.

As part of their celebration, they smeared llama blood and porridge over their faces.

नित्य. It is eternal. There is no beginning and no end. Dharma based civilization resurfaces, time to time at different places of our Earth, based on locals urge to live perfect life (विजिगीषु वृति).

For example, there are striking similarities observed in archeological surveys across world with common denominator as ‘Bharatiya Samskruti’. The similarity in the word usages & customs of distant regions and of remote ages amuse researchers at peak. Affinity of language among people geographically and chronologically remote from each other is vital indicator of नित्य धर्म संस्कृति (Eternal Dharma based civilization).

Hindu culture, civilization, custom and belief also dominated ancient America to some extent. Ancient Americans believed in legendary cataclysm, rebirth, four yugas and the concept of two planets like Rahu and Ketu causing solar eclipse. A festival called Sita-Ram (Situa-Raimi) was celebrated in Mexico during Nav-Ratri or Dussehra period which has been described on page 5867 in the book ‘Hamsworth History of the World’.
