Vaisakhi (Punjabi: ਵਿਸਾਖੀ) visākhī), also known as Baisakhi, Vaishakhi, or Vasakhi) is a harvest festival of the Punjab region which also marks the Punjabi new year. The festival is especially important for the Sikh community as it marks the establishment of theKhalsa which is also termed Khalsa Sirjana Divas. Vaisakhi falls on Vaisakha Sankranti (the first of the solar month of Vaisakha) which marks the start of the solar new year across many parts of the sub-continent which is important for Hindus.

The festival also coincides with other new year festivals celebrated on the first day of Vaisakh, in some regions of the Indian Subcontinent such as Pohela Boishakh the Bengali New Year, Bohag Bihu of Assam or Puthandu, the Tamil New Year.

Harvest festival and the Punjabi New Year

Vaisakhi is a harvest festival for Punjabis and, according to the Punjabi calendar, the Punjabi New Year based on the solar aspect of the Punjabi calendar which is based on the Bikramicalendar and is used by all communities. Hindus use the Punjabi calendar as their religious calendar too. Fairs are organised on Vaisakhi day in Punjabi villages.

This day is also observed as the thanksgiving day by the farmers whereby the farmers pay their tribute, thanking God for the abundant harvest and also praying for the future prosperity.

Vaisakhi in Hinduism

The first day of Vaisakh marks the solar new year and is celebrated by Hindus by bathing in sacred rivers. This event is distinct from the regional festival of Vaisakhi and is related to the marking of the start of the solar new year by people of the Punjab region and other regions of the sub-continent which is celebrated as Vaisakha Sankranti.
