  • Chaiti Chhath Mahaparva is starting with Nahai Khay
  • On 19th April, the festival will end by offering to the Sun
  • During this, the rule is to keep fast for about 36 hours
New Delhi: By the way, the Chhath festival is specially celebrated in Bihar and eastern UP. But now this festival has become so famous that it is being celebrated not only in India but also abroad. Chhath is known as Mahaparva, the festival of worship of the sun (Worshipping sun god). Many people will not know that the festival of Chhath is also celebrated twice a year. Most people only know about the Chhath festival which comes six days after Diwali in the month of October-November. But like Navratri, Chhath is celebrated twice (Chhath is celebrated twice). Once in the month of Chaitra and other times in the month of Kartik.

Sixth Mayya is the sister of Sun God

On the Chaturthi Tithi of Shukla Paksha in the month of Chaitra, Chhath Mahaparva starts for four days with Nahay Khay. Due to falling in Chaitra month, it is known as Chaiti Chhath. This year, Chaiti Chhath Mahaparva starts on Friday, April 16. The sixth Mayya, according to mythological beliefs, is the sister of Suryadev. This is the reason why worshipping the Sun God during Chhath also pleases the Sixth Maya. It is believed that offering to the sun during the Chhath festival brings happiness, peace, and financial prosperity to the house.

Chaiti Chhath festival

Nahay-Khay on 16th April: On this day, after cleaning the house properly, bathing with the clean water of holy rivers or ponds, a fast is resolved. On this day Vrati, which holds Chaiti Chhath, eats rice, gram lentils, and gourd vegetable.
Kharna on 17th April: Kharna (Kharna) takes place on the next day of Nahai Khay. On this day, fasting is to be observed from morning till evening. In the evening, they make kheer made of milk and jaggery on an earthen stove and eat it by offering it to God. They drink water till the moon is seen and then followed by a 36-hour long fast begins.

Evening Argh on 18th April: Archaya is offered to Asthachalagami i.e., the setting sun on 18 April Sunday. On this day, they go to the ghat situated on the bank of a river or pond and offer arghya to the sun. But due to restrictions of Corona, people will not be able to visit the ghat this year.
Chaiti Chhath Closing on 19th April: Chaiti Chhath will be concluded by giving arghya to the rising sun on the morning of the seventh day of Chaitra Navratri on 19th April.
