Generally, women fast during Chhath Puja, and preparations for the festival begin after Diwali. Devotees are permitted to consume only Satvik food (no onion or garlic), to prepare meals with the utmost hygiene, and to eat only after taking a bath.

 

Nahay Khay Significance (नहाए खाए का महत्व):

The first day of Chhath Puja begins with a bath. Nahay Khaye refers to taking a bath after eating. On this day, some special customs must be observed. After taking a bath in a river or pond, the fasting person eats rice made of raw rice, chana dal, and pumpkin (gourd or ghee) as prasad. Taking a bath is associated with purity. In this, devotees begin the Chhath fast by becoming sattvik and pure.

Pumpkin vegetable is considered completely sattvik. That’s why Chhath Puja fast is started by eating this. It is believed that by eating it, the communication of positive energy increases. Pumpkin is an easily digestible vegetable in terms of health. This is the reason why Chhath Vratis consume pumpkin.

Chhath puja date:

October 28, Friday – Take a bath (Nahay Khaye)
29 October, Saturday-Kharna
30 October, Sunday – Arghya to the setting sun
October 31, Monday – Arghya to the rising sun
Nahay Khay is the first day of Chhath Puja:
Women and men who fast on this day cleanse their minds by eating only one meal at a time. From this day forward, great care is taken to maintain purity in the home, and the preparation of garlic and onions is prohibited. Fasting women eat gourd vegetable, gramme dal, rice, and radish on the day of bathing.
Fast for the entire day on the second day:
The second day of Chhath Puja is referred to as “Kharna.” On this day, the fasting person fasts for the entire day. Kharna means purification. In the evening of Kharna, the fasting women break their day-long fast after worshipping by making offerings of jaggery kheer.

Important things to keep in mind in Chhath Puja:

1. Do not allow small children to touch any objects of worship.
2. Do not feed prasad to the child until the worship is completed.

3. Never use abusive language with the fast or family members during Chhath Puja.
4. The women who keep the fast of Chhath Maiya, should not sleep on the bed and should sleep on the ground by laying the cloth.
