Chhath Puja: Legend/Katha

As per the legend/Katha of Chhath Puja, Raja Priyavrat had no child, as a result, he would always remain worried and unhappy. Once, Maharishi Kashyap suggested Raja to perform Yagya to be blessed with a child. Agreeing to the advice of the Maharaja, the Yagya was performed, and thus, he was blessed with a child but it was born as dead.    

On this, king, queen, and others went deep into sorrow. All of a sudden, Maa Shashthi appeared in the sky, and the king prayed to her and she introduced herself as the daughter of Brahma and takes care of the children on the earth, and grants children to the childless.   

After this, Devi showers her blessings on the dead child, and all of a sudden, he started breathing. Seeing this, the king got pleased and started worshipping Devi Shashthi. It is believed that the tradition of worshipping Maa Chhathi started from there onwards.
