Happy Govardhan Puja – The Govardhan Puja, or the worship of the cow, is one of the most important Hindu festivals. It is celebrated on the last day of the dark fortnight (puja paksha) of Ashwin month (October – November) every year. The festival falls on the day of the waxing moon (Gauribidan), and is usually celebrated in households by offering prayers to Lord Krishna and his consort Radha.
This Festivals is the part of 5 day long festivities of Diwali and it is is mark a day after Diwali. Each year Krishna Janamastami is mark as a manager to recall the plot of Gokul which had saved from rains at that time. In fact, it is trusted that the God of Rain, Lord Indra was angered by their decision to worship a hill (Annakut hill / Parbat) instead of him and caused uncontrollable rains during festive to punish them. This is at the time Lord Krishna lifted Govardhan Hill on his pinky finger in order to save people from drowning.
Govardhan Puja, however, falls on the same day and is associated with a tale from Hindu mythology that revolves around Lord Krishna. One of the most important festivals for Vaishnavas and Hindu denominations globally, the festival commemorates the incident where Lord Krishna lifted a hill called Govardhan to protect his devotees from torrential rains that could destroy the village of Vrindavan and its people. It is believed that Lord Indra’s wrath rained on the village and the day also marks the victory of Krishna over Indra. The incident is from the Bhagavata Purana and is considered a symbolic representation of how God will always protect his devotees, come what may. The devotees offer ‘a hill’ of food to the Lord which is a figurative representation of the Govardhan hill.
This day and the offering is also called ‘annakoot’. The festival is celebrated on the first lunar day of the Shukla Paksha of the month of Kartik. Offerings of food are made in large quantities, with families and organizations setting up street-side stalls to offer food in large quantities as a form of charity to everyone and anyone who wishes to have it. Also known as a ‘bhandara’, this offering on the day of Govardhan is done across the country as a form of service to the community and a token of gratitude to Lord Krishna, the protector.
In many communities and geographical locations, especially among the Yadavs of rural Northern India, an anthropomorphic image or creation of the Govardhan hill is done in cow dung in which it is represented as a man with limbs and a face. Devotees gather cow dung for the day and create images, ranging from miniature to life-sized, of the Lord and in the evening, worship it. The procedure involves seven circumambulations of the created image and singing songs of praise for God. In the actual village of Vrindavan, there stands the Govardhan hill around which devotees take a 21-kilometer circumambulation.
While most people associate Diwali with crackers, sweets, Lakshmi Puja, and the homecoming of Lord Rama, there are other aspects to it which people seem to miss. The most rarely talked about festival that is a part of the five days long Diwali celebrations is Govardhan Puja. Also known as ‘Vishwakarman Day’, it celebrates the eponymous God who is considered to be the divine architect, the creator of our world, and is often associated with the term ‘swayambhu’ meaning self-manifested. He is believed to have created great weapons for the Gods and the palace of Indraprastha for the Pandavas. The great city of Dwarka over which Krishna ruled is also believed to have been constructed by him. The self-manifested God is worshipped on this day, especially by workers and craftsmen who directly engage in this field of work.
