On Chhath Puja, ladies play out the morning puja by remaining in a water body and offering water to the Sun and Chhathi Maiyya, accepted to be the Sun’s sister.
The promising four-day celebration of Chhath Puja is commended with extraordinary excitement in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and West Bengal. This year, the celebration will start on November 17 and close on November 20. The blessed celebration is committed to the Sun God, a definitive wellspring of energy and life. On this day, ladies play out the morning puja by remaining in a water body and offering water to the Sun and Chhathi Maiyya, accepted to be the Sun’s sister.
As indicated by the Hindu schedule, Chhath festivities start with Nahay Khay (washing and devouring) the principal day, trailed by Kharna on the subsequent day, then, at that point, Chhath Puja on the third day, and Usha Arghya on Saptami Tithi, which is the fourth and the last day. To play out the four-day-long puja one would require numerous things. Hence, it’s vital that one accumulates every one of the things ahead of time as missing even a solitary thing in Chhath Puja is viewed as unpropitious.
