Chhath Puja,

Chhath, one of the most important festivals celebrated by the people of India, is just around the corner and the preparations for the festival have already begun. Celebrated primarily by the people of Bihar and the eastern states of India, Chhath Puja is an ancient Hindu festival that celebrates the Sun God and his wife Usha. It is believed that worshipping the Sun God on this day brings good health and prosperity to the family.

Chhath Puja is celebrated every year on the sixth day of the month of Kartik according to the Hindu calendar. This year, Chhath Puja will be celebrated from November 11 to November 13, 2023. On this day, devotees gather at the banks of rivers and lakes to pay homage to the Sun God.

The rituals of Chhath Puja include taking a holy bath in the river, offering prayers to the Sun God and his wife Usha, fasting for the whole day, and cooking traditional dishes, such as puri and laddoos, as offerings. The festival is celebrated with great enthusiasm, and people come from far and wide to participate in the festivities.

The highlight of the festival is the evening aarti, or prayer, which is performed in the presence of the Sun God. People gather around the river banks and light diyas, or lamps, and offer prasad to the Sun God. After the aarti, devotees take the prasad home and share it with family and friends.

Chhath Puja is an important festival for the people of India and marks the beginning of the festive season. It is a time for people to come together and celebrate the spirit of unity and brotherhood. So, mark your calendars for November 11 to November 13, 2023 and get ready to experience the joy and festivities of Chhath Puja.
