About “CHHATH PUJA:

 

The Sun, considered as the god of energy and of the life-force, is worshiped during the Chhath festival to promote well-being, riches and evolvement. Chhath is an ancient Hindu festival of Bihar and of Indian origin people living in Mithila region of Nepal. It is the only Vedic Festival dedicated to the Hindu Sun God, Surya and Chhathi Maiya (ancient Vedic Goddess Usha). The Chhath Puja is so old that it even predates the ancient Vedic texts, and the Rigveda contains hymns revering the Sun god and describing the same rituals practised in Chhath. This is the only parva which values both the rising sun as well as setting sun!

 

The word ‘Chhath’ means the ‘sixth’ and here this means the sixth day from Diwali i.e. the day when Lord Ram’s and his wife Sita were celebrated for returning successfully back to their home city of Ayodhaya. It is said that it was just after six days during their coronation that both Ram and Sita as a couple offered prayers to the Sun god in Shukla Paksh phase…and since then, Chhath is an active ritual practised in today’s modern times.

 

Chhath Puja is performed on Kartika Shukla Shashthi, which is the sixth day of the month of Kartika in the Hindu calendar (Vikram Sambat). This falls typically in the month of October or November in the Gregorian English Calendar. Even though the festival is observed most elaborately in Indian states of Bihar, Jharkhand and eastern UP, it is also more prevalent in areas where migrants from those areas have a presence like northeast region of India, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Chandigarh, Gujarat, Mumbai, and in foreign countries like in Mauritius, Fiji, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Suriname and Jamaica.

 

Chhath in Devanagari is written and called as छठ, छठी, छठ पर्व, छठ पुजा, डाला छठ, डाला पुजा, and सुर्य षष्ठी. The Chhath Puja is performed in order to thank Surya for sustaining life on Earth and appealing the grant of valued wishes. The rituals of the festival are rigorous and are observed over a period of four days and includes holy bathing, fasting and abstaining from drinking water (Vratta), standing in water for long periods of time, and offering prashad (prayer offerings) and arghya to the setting and rising sun. This is also the only holy festival which has no involvement of any pandit (priest) throughout its performance. As part of Hindu festival, this Sun pray is believed to help cure a variety of diseases, including leprosy, and helps ensure the longevity and prosperity of family members, friends, and elders.
