Without the Sun, this Earth would have been a lifeless ice-coated rock!
That’s why Hindus celebrate Chhath Puja devoted to the Sun God or Suryadev and his wife, Usha. We thank them for supporting and sustaining life on Earth and seek for their blessings and protection.
In Hindu mythology, Sun is the God of Energy and life-force that has healing powers too. In ancient India, it was believed that the Sun God cures diseases and illnesses like leprosy, anaemia, etc. India Imprints ensures that, with their patrons, they thank the Suryadevta every year for prosperity and good health in the day of Kartika Shukla Shashthi that falls on the Karthik month of Hindu calendar.
Who celebrates Chhath Puja?
Anyone who believes in the strength of the Sun can perform the rituals of this festival. However, once a family starts performing this ceremony, it becomes their duty to do it every year and pass it to the future generations.
