JANAKPUR:- The worshippers have concluded the Chhath, a grand festival of goodwill and faith by making offerings to the rising sun this morning.
The four-day festival starts from Kartik Shukla Chaturthi by worshipping setting Sun and concludes on Kartik Shukla Saptami as per the lunar calendar by making offerings to rising Sun.
The revelers had made offerings to the Sun with the grains produced in their fields and home-made delicious foods on the banks of different ponds including Sarobar Gangasagar, Argaja and others.
The key message of the Chhath festival is coordination, inclusion and simplicity. The festival is a collective resolution made under the leadership of women for the welfare of society and family. This is an important part of this festival.
The Sun considered as the god of energy and of the life-force, was worshiped during the Chhath festival to promote well-being, prosperity and progress as per the time-honored tradition.
The ritual of Chhath Parba includes taking a holy bath, fasting, standing and worshiping the sun for a long time and offering Prasad and Argha to the ‘Rising and setting Sun”.
The Chhath festival has been observed as a common cultural symbol of Terai.
