Sita Kalyanam is an annual event being celeberated at Rikhiadham, Deoghar, Jharkhand the tapobhumi of Parmahamsa Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Usually it is in the months od November and December the dates for the event is announced by Paramhas ji according to the calculation of the Hindu calendar.

Sita Kalyanam is the reminiscence of a sacred event of the distant past, it celebrates the day Sri Ram and Sita entered into matrimony. The original event took place many aeons ago, but is still remembered on the 5th day of the sacred month of Margashirsha as per the Indian lunar calendar.

This even is presided over by Swami Satyananda. In the five days celebrations chanting, satsang, kirtan and yajna (traditional fire ceremony) is done. It is a time of great celebration but also a very sacred and auspicious ceremony which creates and incredible atmosphere for spiritual growth.

The spirit at Sita Kalyanam is to give and share joy, happiness and wealth with our needy and deserving relatives in human society.
