Janaki Jayanti 2022 Date

Janaki Jayanti marks the birth anniversary of Goddess Sita, the consort of Sri Rama. One of the most auspicious festivals in Hindu calendar, Janaki Jayanti occurs annually on Krishna Paksha Ashtami in the month of Phalguna as per North Indian calendar. However, Janaki Jayanti is observed during Magha month as per the Amanta calendar followed in Gujarat, Maharashtra and South Indian states. Janaki Jayanti is observed on the same day in both calendars. In some places, married women observe a fast for the long life and well-being of their husbands. Janaki Jayanti is also known as Sita Ashtami.

Sita Ashtami, or Janaki Janma, is believed to be the day when Mata Sita appeared on earth according to North India Calendar. Mata Sita is considered as the embodiment of purity and devotion and is believed to be an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi. Sita was adopted by King Janaka when he was ploughing the fields and as she became a daughter to King Janaka, Maa Sita came to be known as Janaki. She married to Lord Rama and later was known by the name "Vaidehi". As per Ramayana, Ravana abducted her and later was rescued by Rama, Lakshman, Hanuman and Vanar Sena. Married women keep fast on this day and special pujas and satsangs are arranged in Ram temples.

Janaki Jayanti History

Once the state of Mithila suffered severe drought and King Janak was suggested to perform a Yagna and run a plough on the ground to get rid of the drought problem. When King Janak ploughed the ground, he found Mata Sita in the form of a child. As King Janak had no children, he adopted her as his daughter along with his wife Queen Sunayana and gave child the name Sita. Later, King Janak organised her swayamvar where Goddess Sita chose to marry Sri Rama who was the prince of Ayodhya and they both were blessed with two sons Luv and Kush.

Please note that Maa Sita's birthday or Sita Jayanti is also known as Sita Navami with Hindu communities in Eastern and Western parts of India and Sita Navami or Janaki Navami is observed in the month of Vaishaka(April-May).
