Namaskara.

Today we will learn the significance of the term “Phalguna.”

One of the names for the great warrior Arjuna was “Phalguna.” Let us understand why he is called by this name.

Arjuna was born in the Phalguna masa. As a result he acquired that name. You can argue that many people are born in this masa, why only he is named so. That is because he was the only great warrior who was born in that masa for that year. Additionally, it was the same year in which Shri Krishna Paramatma was also born.

A question might come that there were many great warriors who were born in the Phalguna masa in subsequent years. That year’s Phalguna masa was special because Krishna was also born in that year

Note:

For newcomers, Adhyatma Chintane is a weekly column by my school friend R, where he discusses all things spiritual, in readily understandable tidbits. The purpose is to spread awareness about our culture and tradition, which is increasingly becoming a distant memory. A new issue will be delivered to your inbox/feed reader every Monday morning.
