About Karva Chauth


Karva Chauth is a holy festival celebrated by Hindu women in North India in which married women fast from sunrise to moonrise just for the safety, longevity, well-being and prosperity of their husbands. Moreover, many a times, unmarried women observe the fast for their fiancés or desired husbands during this day. The fast is traditionally observed in the states of Rajasthan, parts of Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, and Punjab.

Karva is a Hindi word that literally means 'pot' (a small earthen pot of water or lantern) and chauth means 'fourth' in Hindi referring that the festival falls on the fourth day of the dark-fortnight also called as krishna paksh, of the month of Kartik i.e. the fourth day after the full moon, in the Hindu lunisolar calendar month of Kartik.

On the day of Karwa Chauth, married women keep a strict fast and do not take even a drop of water. It is the most important and difficult fast observed by married Hindu women. It begins before sunrise and ends only after offering prayers and worshiping the moon at night. No food or water can be taken even after sunrise. The wait for the moon rise begins after sunset, and as soon as the moon is sighted, prayers are offered to the moon. The fasting women first observe the moon and their respective husbands through a sieve and then break their fast once rituals of the day have been performed. Women break their fast after offering water to the moon. The first sip of water and the first morsel of food is offered by the husband himself.

Benefits of Karva Chauth practice: Fasting is not only a part of worship, but a great instrument for self-discipline too. It is a training of the mind and the body to endure and harden up against all hardships, to endure under difficulties and not give up. The ancient Indian medical system of Ayurveda sees the basic cause of many diseases as the accumulation of toxic materials in the digestive system. Regular cleansing of toxic materials keeps one healthy. By fasting, the digestive organs get rest and all body mechanisms are cleansed and corrected.

Other Hindu practices that have similar meaning and significance as Karva Chauth but, may fall on different dates of the year are: Vat-Savitri Puja, Teej, Mahashivratri, Gangaur, Varalakshmi Vratham, and Karadaiyan Nombu and they suggest personalised values belonging various regional areas of India.
