The Aarti for pleasing Goddess Ahoi Bhagwati is:


जय अहोई माता, जय अहोई माता!
तुमको निसदिन ध्यावत हर विष्णु विधाता। टेक।।
ब्राहमणी, रुद्राणी, कमला तू ही है जगमाता।
सूर्य-चंद्रमा ध्यावत नारद ऋषि गाता।। जय।।
माता रूप निरंजन सुख-सम्पत्ति दाता।।
जो कोई तुमको ध्यावत नित मंगल पाता।। जय।।
तू ही पाताल बसंती, तू ही है शुभदाता।
कर्म-प्रभाव प्रकाशक जगनिधि से त्राता।। जय।।
जिस घर थारो वासा वाहि में गुण आता।।
कर न सके सोई कर ले मन नहीं धड़काता।। जय।।
तुम बिन सुख न होवे न कोई पुत्र पाता।
खान-पान का वैभव तुम बिन नहीं आता।। जय।।
शुभ गुण सुंदर युक्ता क्षीर निधि जाता।
रतन चतुर्दश तोकू कोई नहीं पाता।। जय।।
श्री अहोई माँ की आरती जो कोई गाता। 
उर उमंग अति उपजे पाप उतर जाता।। जय।।

  1. Ahoi Ashtami is celebrated eight days prior to Diwali on Krishna Paksha Ashtami. On this day, mothers fast for their children and seek blessings from Goddess Ahoi for their long life and well-being.
  2. In order to keep this fast, women wake up before sunrise and begin the process of worship. For the Puja, any image of Goddess Ahoi which has eight corners can be used as a reference to the fact that the festival falls on the eighth day of Krishna Paksha. 
  3. In the image of Goddess Ahoi, a picture of Sei should also be there. Sei is a spiny mammal that sits close to Goddess Ahoi. 
  4. The process of worship should begin by the evening. After the altar has been purified with Holy Ganga water, sprinkle some wheat flour on the altar. 
  5. Put a Kalash near the image of the Goddess. The edges of the Kalash should be smeared with turmeric powder and the stout should be filled with grass shoots, preferably of Sarai Seenka. Listen to the story of Goddess Ahoi read by the eldest woman of the family followed by offering food and money to the Goddess.
  6. Women break the fast by giving Argha to the stars or the moon, as per their preference. This marks the end of the fast and the festival of Ahoi Ashtami

Feeding the needy, orphans and old-aged people brings out the real essence of this festival and completes its purpose. 

We at AstroSage wish you a joyous Ahoi Ashtami 2016 ! 

May your children receive the choicest blessings of Maa Ahoi Bhagwati and enjoy a long and happy life.

ले वीरा कुड़िये करवाडा
लै सर्व सुहागन करवाडा
