A four-day festival which begins on the sixth day after Diwali also known as Dala Chhath or Surya Shashti. This ancient festival is dedicated to the Sun God and Chhathi Maiya, ancient Vedic Goddess Usha – wife of Sun God and people worship to the Sun God for sustaining life on the earth.

1) The first day of the Chhath Puja is known as “Nahai Khai” or “nahan khan.”..( A Day for A #HOLYDIP & devotees takes meal for once )

2)The second day is known as “lohanda.” Worshippers keep fast for the whole day and break their fast after sunset after worshipping the Sun God and devotees again go on a fast for the next 36 hours during which they neither eat anything nor drink even a sip of water.

3)On the third day, which is known as the day of Chhath, devotees prepare Prasad and offer the Sandhya Arghya at the ghat of a river bank or pond. Devotees worship the Sun God and Chhath Maiya. At night, the event of Kosi is celebrated where clay diyas are lighted under the covering of five sugarcane sticks. The five sugarcane sticks symbolize the Pancha Tattva (earth, water, fire, space, and air) that constitute the human body. 🌱🌋🌧️🍃🌌 4)On the fourth day, devotees offer “Usha Arghya” to the rising sun at the bank of the river or pond. After performing puja, devotees break their fast finally and distribute MahaPrasada.

நரிகழு வதுகள்க ளிக்கச் சோரிகள்
ரணகள முழுதுமி குத்துக் கூளிகள்
நடமிட அசுரர்கு லத்துக் காலனை - நிகராகி

நனிகடல் கதறபொ ருப்புத் தூளெழ
நணுகிய இமையவ ருக்குச் சீருற
நணுகலர் மடியதொ லைத்துப் பேர்பேறு - பெருமாளே

To the elation of foxes and eagles in the warfield, which was filled with blood, while the devils were dancing, you arrived as the god of Death (Yama Raja) to the clan of demons (Asuras)
You made the seven seas scream aloud, You shattered the mountains, You granted refuge to those who surrendered to you and destroyed the asuras to earn great fame ! oh Lord !
