However, its popularity has increased over the years, which explains the commemoration of Chhath in various parts of India. Chhath Puja is also known as Surya Sashti in many places.

From the religious point of view, this festival has a great amount of significance. On this day, Chatthi Maiya is also worshipped along with the Sun. At the same time, the tradition of offering Arghya to the Sun is also followed during Chhath Puja. As per the scriptures, Lord Sun has been described as the essence of all creations existing in this Universe.

Who is Chhati Maiya?

As per the colloquial language, Shashthi Mata is known as Chhathi Maiya. According to Vedic scriptures, Shashthi Mata has been described as the Manas Putri (spiritual daughter) of Lord Brahma. The name Katyayani has also been attributed to her and Goddess Katyayani is worshiped on Shashti Tithi during Sharad and Chaitra Navratri. Beliefs state that Goddess Chhathi protects one’s offspring and also grants them longevity, which is why female natives wish for the long lives of their sons and offer their reverence to Goddess Sashti. 

When is Chhath Puja Celebrated?

The Hindu festival Chhath is celebrated six days after the Diwali celebrations. As per the Vedic Panchang, this festival is observed during Kartik month’s Shukla Paksha’s Sashti Tithi. However, the festivities go on for a period of four days. The occasion begins with Kartik Shukla Paksha’s Chaturthi Tithi which ends with the same month and Paksha’s Ashtami Tithi.

Chhath Puja: Rituals and Traditions 

The festivals which find a place in the Hindu Sanatan Dharma are significant in their own ways. The various customs and traditions associated with them give birth to their relevance. In the same vein, there are also some rites and rituals performed on the day of Chhath Puja, which adds to its grandeur and makes it different from the rest. There are four main highlights of this festival which are - Nahay Khay, Kharna, Sandhya Arghya and Usha Arghya.

  • Nahay Khay is the first day of this festival. The word Nahai Khay stands for the practice of keeping your mind and body pious during this Puja. On this day, the practice of cleaning one’s household and courtyard is also observed. One should also keep in mind to take an early bath and consume Sattvik food thereby housing positive thoughts in mind. 
  • The second highlight of this festival is Kharna. It takes place during the second day of Chhath. Natives observe fasts on this day. The nature of this fast is quite strict as natives do not even consume a single drop while undergoing this Vrat. however, when the fast is broken, the ritual of ingesting jaggery pudding, bread(roti) mixed with clarified butter (ghee) and fruits is followed. 
  • On the third day of Chhath Puja (Kartik Shukla Shashthi), Arghya in the form of water is offered to Surya Dev during sunset. This ritual is called Sandhya Arghya. Earlier in the evening before the Arghya is offered, the vessel is decorated with fruits, sweets(ladoos) made of rice and other things in a bamboo basket. After its successful commemoration, natives who have observed the fast and all of their family members make the offering. Meanwhile, the same water is used to worship Chhathi Maiya later. 
  • On the last day of Chhath festival, the tradition of offering Usha (morning) Arghya is followed by natives. On this day, Arghya is offered to the Sun God during the early morning hours. Natives reach the banks of rivers and then offer Arghya to the rising Sun. After this, Chhath Mata is venerated and the longevity of progeny along with the prosperity of the household is sought from the Goddess.

Diwali and Narak Chaturdashi Coincides On The Same Day!

Know Diwali & Narak Chaturdashi Puja Muhurat & attain the blessings of Maa Laxmi & Lord Ganesha.

Diwali is occurring on 27 October this year. This festival is celebrated throughout the country with much pomp and show. All the followers of Hinduism eagerly await this celebration and fill the dark night with the light of lamps (Diyas) and their excitement. Deepavali is another name for this festival, so is Prakash Utsav due to the bright illumination of the night.

Mythology states that on this day, Lord Rama returned to his kingdom Ayodhya after killing Ravana and completing his exile (Vanvas) of 14 years. To commemorate this happiness, people light diyas in and around their homes, reminiscing of the natives of Ayodhaya, who did the same, centuries ago in welcome of Lord Rama, Lady Sita, and Lord Lakshman. Deepavali is the festival of victory of good over evil, a day of positivity. Devotees pay homage to the Gods and Goddesses to remove the negativity from their lives.

Laxmi Puja Muhurat on Diwali

Lakshmi Puja MuhuratFrom 18:44:04 to 20:14:27
Duration1 hour 30 minutes
Pradosh KaalFrom 17:40:34 to 20:14:27
Vrishabha KaalFrom 18:44:04 to 20:39:54

Note: This Muhurta is valid for New Delhi, India.

Diwali According to Hindu Panchang

Diwali falls on the day of Amavasya (New Moon), i.e., when there is no moon in the sky. In the Kartik Month, during the Pradosh Kaal of Amavasya, we celebrate Deepavali and worship Goddess Mahalakshmi. If the Amavasya Tithi continues for two days and Pradosh Kaal occurs only during the second day, Diwali is celebrated on that day. There are many other beliefs associated with the commemoration of Deepavali, but this one is most prevalent. 

Things to Remember During Laxmi Puja

During Diwali, one of the major festivals of Hinduism; devotees worship Goddess Lakshmi. Additionally, we also pay homage to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Saraswati on this day. People clean their houses and places of worship because they believe that the Goddess of Wealth, Lakshmi herself descends to Earth on this day and blesses her devotees. Some important things to remember during Lakshmi Puja are:

  • Like every festival, bathing and meditating early in the morning have high importance, on Diwali as well.
  • Next, you should clean your place of worship at home.
  • Sprinkle Gangajal or Gomutra around your house to cleanse it.
  • Chant the Gayatri Mantra or ‘ऊँ नम: शिवाय/ūm̐ nama: śivāya’ to purify your heart.
  • Draw a beautiful rangoli and place diyas on it.
  • After cleaning your place of worship, spread a red cloth and establish the idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha.
  • Light a diya (lamp) and offer lamp, molly/kalawa (sacred red thread), water, rice, jaggery etc. to the deities.
  • On this day, it is auspicious for the family members to stay together.
  • Distribute prasad after the puja ends and do charity according to your capabilities.

Narak Chaturdashi in 2019

Interestingly, this year, Narak Chaturdashi (Choti Diwali) and Diwali, both are occurring on the same day. This is because the dates, Chaturdashi and Amavasya, according to Hindu Panchang, are coinciding on the same day. While Chaturdashi will continue till 12:25:25 on 27 October 2019, and then Amavasya will begin, which will end at 09:10:52 next morning. Devotees worship Lord Yamraj, the God of Death on this day (Choti Diwali/Narak Chaturdashi), and pray for freedom from the fear of death (Mrityu Bhay) and untimely/premature death.

Narak Chaturdashi Puja: Things to Remember

  • One should begin the day with a clean heart and body.
  • After taking a bath, it is auspicious to massage your body with sesame oil.
  • We pray to Lord Yamraj on this day, while facing the South direction.
  • Light a diya (lamp) on the main door of your home to please Yamraj.
  • Worshipping Lord Krishna, along with Lord Yamraj, fills a person with good qualities and virtues.
  • One should clean their house during the Nishit Kaal (midnight) of Narak Chaturdashi, and throw away unnecessary things.
