Vasant stands for Spring season in Sanskrit and is the fifth day of Shukla Paksh, on fortnight of the waxing moon in the Hindu month of Magh/Maha, (January–February). This marks the end of the winter season.
In the Shreemad Bhagwat Gita 10.35, Lord Shree Krishna says that He is the Brhat Sama of the Sama Veda, and the Gayatri amongst all poetry, Maghshirsh amongst all months and Vasant amongst all seasons.
