Chhath Puja 2023

After Diwali, people especially ‘poorvanchalis’ start preparing for the four-day-long festival, Chhath Puja. It is mainly celebrated in Bihar, Jharkhand, and eastern Uttar Pradesh in India and Nepal. Chhath Puja holds special significance as it revolves around the source of energy, the sun god. It is performed to seek blessings from the Sun God for a healthy, happy, and prosperous life.

Chhath Pooja will be celebrated from November 17-20 this year.

First Day: On the first day, also known as Kaddu Bhaat or Nahai Khai, the partition (the main worshiper who observes fast) cooks the Satvik Kaddu Bhaat along with pulse and serves it as ‘bhog’ to the deity in the afternoon.

Second Day: On the second day, also known as Kharana, the parvaitin cooks roti and rice kheer and serves it as ‘bhog’ to the ‘Chandradevta’ (Moon God).

Third-Day: A full-day fast without water is observed on the third main day of Chhath Puja. The main ritual of the day is to offer Arghya to the setting Sun.

Fourth Day: On the final day of Chhath, Dusri Arghya is given to the rising Sun and it is known as Usha Arghya. The 36-hour-long fast is broken after giving Arghya to the Sun.
