CHHATH PUJA – GREAT FESTIVAL OF BIHAR
Chhath Puja the famous festival of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand starts just after Diwali. This four day rigorous puja is related with God Surya, so we call it Surya Shasthi and Dala Chhath too. It begins two days earlier before Kartik Shasti. To cure varieties of diseases we use sunlight. So we believe worshipping Sun will be helpful to keep us fit and fine especially from skin diseases.
Chhath Â Puja Vidhi (Rituals):
Chhath puja includes holy bath along with nirjala (no water concept) fasting, and two times Surya Aarag (offering prayer in the water in standing position). As per Vedas Goddess Usha the consort of Surya is known as chhathi maiya. We offer our prayer to both of them.
Tradition of Chhath Puja
This festival starts with the tradition Nahay- khaya that includes just bathing and taking food with onion and garlic, then on second day which is the day of Kharna or Lohanda is just prior date of chhath. Third day is considered as the day of Chhat puja and on fourth day we do paarun.
