Gowri Habba - Know Importance, Method & Story

Sawan is considered to be the month of worship of Shiva and Bhadrapada month is considered to be the month of worship of Lord Krishna due to Janmashtami. But in the Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month, there are some festivals of worship of the Shiva family.

Ganesh Chaturthi which is celebrated on Shukla Chaturthi of this month is prominent. The festival of worship of Lord Ganesha lasts for ten days, but the day before Ganesh Chaturthi i.e. Shukla Tritiya is celebrated as Gauri Habba, the festival of worship of Goddess Parvati, this day is also celebrated as Hartalika Teej.

Gauri Habba festival worship method

On this day, along with keeping Gauri fast, Goddess Parvati is also worshiped. Mata Parvati is also considered to be the incarnation of Adishakti. In this puja, Goddess Parvati is worshiped and the grain is set on a stool (tank).

The roof or say pandal is made on top of this statue with mango or banana leaves. After this, Goddess Parvati is worshiped. It is believed that Lord Ganesha must visit thereafter worshiping with the law and with due devotion and gives blessings of happiness, peace, wealth, and prosperity in the house.

Gauri Habba means Gauri festival

Bhadrapada Shukla Tritiya is celebrated as Hartalika Teej in some areas and in some areas, it is celebrated as the Gauri Habba festival. The belief behind this is that on this day, Mother Parvati gives a boon to Suhagin women on this day, while on the other hand, she gives a boon to unmarried girls to get the desired boon.

On the Chaturthi date, Goddess Parvati had killed the body of Lord Shri Ganesha by the impregnation on her body (in some mythology from the scum of the body and in some with the soil). That is why Gauri Habba, the festival of worship of Goddess Parvati is celebrated on the first day before Ganesh Chaturthi.

Story of Gauri Ganesh

The story of Gauri Ganesh is also found in different mythological texts. But the origin of all the stories is that Goddess Parvati created Ganesha and enlivened him and ordered him to guard the gate before bathing and not let anyone come in.

Even Lord Shiva was ignorant of Ganesha till that time. When Lord Shiva returned after a tour, Ganesha stopped him from entering. Lord Shiva became angry with this adventurousness of a boy beheaded her, but when she came to know the whole story and Mata Parvati started mourning, she put a newborn gajmukh and revived her life in it. There are also different stories about Ganesh being considered as Gajmukh.

In some, the first thing is said to bring the face of any creature or creature to the cub, while in some it is the mother of the sleeping mother who is alienated from her infant. Ultimately, only the head of Hathni’s child is handed over to Lord Shiva.
