Ananda Vuerdon

Ananda Vuerdon in Hindu religion, is a festival celebrated in the fall, to participate in which only they are in duty bound who have inherited the usage from their parents, or who have voluntarily taken it upon themselves; for, once begun, it must be repeated yearly. During the festival the participant fasts, and days and nights are spent in prayer, in which time a little food is taken only once. The Brahmins assemble in the house of the participant, and call upon the three great deities Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva — in whose honor the festival is kept — to come down.
