Pagans celebrate the Vernal Equinox. In Christianity, the same time is celebrated as Easter. In Judaism this is the time of year to celebrate Passover. In Buddhism, this time of year is celebrated as Higan- passing over the river of existence to nirvana. In Zoroastrianism, it is called “Nowruz” and marks the new year. Baha i and Hinduism also note this time of year. Secular people celebrate Earth Day at this time of year.

The deeper we each go into the roots of our respective faiths, the more we should recognize each other. Our various approaches will create a symphony if we each remember to tune to a common chord.
