Hindu festival Chhath holds special significance in states of Bihar, Jharkhand, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, and Odisha. It is celebrated on the sixth day of the month of Kartik in the Vikram Samvat. The four-day festival starts exactly after 4 days of Diwali. The Chhath Puja is dedicated to the sun and his wife Usha in order to thank them for providing life on earth. The festival involves fasting and offering prayers to the Sun. It also involves holy bathing, standing in water for long hours and offering prasad to the setting and rising sun.
Chhath Puja History:
According to the Vedic texts, Draupadi and the Pandavas performed the Chhath puja on the suggestion of noble sage Dhaumya. It is said that worshipping the Sun, helped Draupadi solve her problems and also helped the Pandavas regain their lost kingdom.
It is also believed that the Rishis in ancient times were able to survive without the intake of food as they got energy directly from the sun rays.
According to another historic belief, Lord Rama and her wife Sita had fasted and offered prayers to Lord Sun in Shukla Paksh in the month of Kartik after they returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile.
