Chhath Puja Rituals

In the year 2021, the Chhath festival is starting on Nov 8. ‘Thekuva’ is a type of prasad made specifically for this festival. Apart from this, seasonal fruits are offered too.

‘Sattvikta’ is of great importance in Chhath fasting. For this reason, complete cleanliness is done before this festival. This four-day-long festival begins on the Chaturthi Tithi of Kartik Shukla and ends on Saptami. 

On the first day of the fast, bottle gourd and rice are consumed. ‘Kharna’ is held on the second day and Kheer Prasad is consumed in the evening. On the third day, Arghya or worshipping to the sun is done to the rising sun, and on the fourth, to the setting sun. After this, the four-day fast comes to an end.
