About Chhath Puja | छठ
Chhath is an ancient Hindu festival dedicated to Surya Dev, the Hindu Sun God, Surya, also known as Surya Shashti.The Chhath Puja is performed in order to thank Surya for sustaining life on earth and to request the granting of certain wishes. The Sun, considered the god of energy and of the life-force, is worshiped during the Chhath fesival to promote well-being, prosperity and progress. In Hindu mythology, Sun worship is believed to help cure a variety of diseases, including leprosy, and helps ensure the longevity and prosperity of family members, friends, and elders.
Chhath Puja dedicated to Lord Surya (the sun god) is a 4-day puja which begins on the fourth day after Diwali in the month of Kartik (October – November) in Sak Samvat calendar. Millions of Hindus who live along Ganga River and Kosi River mainly (chiefly Bihar and eastern Uttar Pradesh) or trace their roots to the region observe Chhath. Worship of Surya – the Sun God – goes back to the Vedic age, where he is the creator and nourisher. Hymns dedicated to Surya are scattered across the Vedas and the most popular being the Gayatri Mantra.
The origin of Chhath Puja is lost in the obscure misty millennia of ages past. Perhaps the worship might have begun the day man realized the value of Sun (Surya) and how his survival is dependent on this massive fireball that appears without fail each morning and disappears in the evening.
There is a popular belief that Chhath worship was started by the great warrior Karna of the Mahabharata. Karna is the son of Lord Surya and Kunti.
Chhath Vrata and Puja find mention in the Mahabharata. It is believed that Draupadi, the wife of the Pandavas, had performed the Chhath Puja. She performed it during the exile period.
Significance of Chhath Puja
The word Chhath refers to the process of consciously obtaining the solar energy through 6 stages involving the methods similar to Hath Yog.
Hath here refers to the austerities like fasting, standing in water, etc.
According to another viewpoint, the word Chhath comes from number 6, which signifies its starting date (6th day of the month of Kartik in the Hindu calendar).
Stages of Chhath (Conscious Photoenergization Process)
The entire process of Chhath is divided into 6 scientific stages of Conscious Cosmic Solar Energy Infusion Technique (Conscious Photoenergization Process).
Stage 1: Fasting and the discipline of cleanliness leads to detoxification of the body and mind. This stage prepares the body and mind of the Vratti (devotee) to receive the cosmic solar energy.
Stage 2: Standing in a water body with half the body (navel deep) in the water minimizes the leak of energy and helps the prana (psychic energy) to move up the sushumna (psychic channel in the spine).
Stage 3: Cosmic Solar Energy enters the Vratti
