Significance of Karwa Chauth
The legend goes that first of all Lord Krishna told Draupadi the importance of this fast and then, Lord Shiva to Maa Parvati. This fast is observed on the Chaturthi Tithi in Kartik month during Krishna Paksha. On this day, water is offered to the Moon in an earthen pot, which is termed as Karwa.
Lord Ganesha, Mahadev, also known as the lord of lords, Maa Gauri, and the Moon are worshipped on this very day. The day of Chaturthi is related to Lord Ganesha. So, on this day, Lord Ganesha is devotionally worshipped. With this, the conflicts, misunderstandings, confusions, etc. are washed away from married life.
Moon is considered to be lord of peace, devotion, and tranquility. It is for this very reason that married women pray for their peaceful and comfortable life. In addition to this, Moon is also the lord of longevity and for this very reason, the married woman worships and longs for the healthy and long life of her husband.
This festival is also celebrated for the attainment of beauty. So, the ladies adorn themselves with 16 Shringaar (beauty aids). It is also said that observance of this festival grants beauty and fortune.
Chaturthi Tithi and Dishonour
Chaturthi Tithi is also known as Rikta as any work carried out on this day never meet with success and therefore, any auspicious work is not suggested to be done on this very day. It is said that if Moon is sighted on Chaturthi Tithi, it leads to bring dishonour in one’s life, and therefore, Chandra Darshan is not carried out directly.
But viewing Moon with eyes down after worshipping Lord Ganesha, who is worshipped first in the beginning of any new work, can mitigate disrespect and dishonour. This is the very reason that ladies after worshipping Lord Ganesha see the Moon with the help of a strainer. For worshipping Lord Ganesha, light a lamp/Diya filled with ghee and offer Bhog of Ladoos and pray for a smooth and happy life.
