Chhath Puja is an ancient festival celebrated on the sixth day after Diwali. Chhath puja is performed on the Shashti Tithi of Shukla Paksha of Kartik month. This puja is organized simultaneously throughout the year of India. Chhath Puja is also addressed by the name of Surya Chhath or Dala Chhath. Chhath Puja is celebrated in various metros of the country including Bihar, Jharkhand, Eastern Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh. Although people worship the rising sun, Chhath Puja is a unique festival that begins with the worship of the setting sun.
In this worship dedicated to Lord Surya, the sun is worshiped. In worship, the body and mind have to be fully cultivated, so this festival is also called Hatha Yoga.
Importance of Chhath Puja
The fast of Chhath Puja is associated with happiness, prosperity and health of the family. The main purpose of this fast is to wish for the health of all family members including husband, wife, son, grandson. The practice of Chhath also provides mental peace. The regular pranic flow of air during Chhath helps to reduce anger, jealousy and other negative emotions.
There are many famous folk rituals of Surya worship in our country which are celebrated in different provinces with different customs. In many other foreign islands including Mauritius, Trinidad, Sumatra, Java, residents of Indian origin celebrate Chhath festival with great faith and pomp.
It is seen that women not only wish for the welfare of the entire family with a lot of distress, but are ahead of the men in making various efforts for it. This can be seen by adding to the feeling of renunciation of women.
There is also popular belief that worshiping the Sun God also eliminates diseases like leprosy and ensures family longevity and prosperity. It is done with strict discipline, purity and highest respect. And once a family starts roof worship, it becomes their duty to pass on the traditions to generations.

Chhath Puja Shayari In Hindi
” आत्मा तो प्रकृती (पंचभूत) के
स्पर्श में होता ही है ।
आज आत्मा को प्रकृती का
स्पर्श कराते हैं ।
आज छठ का पावन पर्व मनाते हैं ।।”
हैप्पी छठ पूजा सभी को
उगते सूरज जग में,माना की रोशनी लाता है
हमारे यहाँ पर डूबते सूरज को भी पूजा जाता है
नदी किनारे शाम ओ सुबह मेला सा लग जाता है
छठी मईया को अर्घ देने जब व्रती घाट पर आता है
“This is Chhath festival,
In this Mai loves her children
The sixth Maya shows so much love to the devotee,
Devotees remain uninterested for 48 hours.
Chhath means to make the great memories of happiness, the box of memories, to wait for next year.
