Dhumavati Jayanti 2017: Date, Tithi Time and Vrat Katha

Dhumavati JayantiDhumavati Jayanti in 2017 is falling on June 2, Friday. It is the day when Goddess Dhumavati is glorified and worshipped. The word ‘Dhumavati’ is made of ‘Dhuma’ meaning ‘Smoke’ and ‘vati’ meaning ‘being that’, the smoky one. She kills the demons by creating or discharging dangerous smokes from her body. She is the seventh goddess of the ten Mahavidyas or the ten great divine mothers. Dhumavati Jayanti falls on ashtami (eighth day) during Shukla Paksha in Jyestha month (June-July). On this day, devotees worship her for relief from distress, frustrations, miseries and mental agonies. She is associated with inauspiciousness such as diseases, poverty, misfortune and the like. Her appearance as mentioned in the scriptures is that of an old woman who is ugly, widow and associated with anything that brings bad luck or is unattractive. It is said that she rides a horseless chariot in a cremation ground.

Story of Dhumati Devi:

A Vedic scripture Shaktisamgama Tantra mentions a legend of Dhumati Devi. When Sati, Shiva’s wife, found out that Her father Daksha hadn’t invited Her husband to a great fire sacrifice, she fell insulted. Despite Shiva’s protests, She went to the assembly where renowned personalities of heaven, sages and saints had come for the sacrifice. Daksha aware of his daughter’s presence didn’t pay attention and offer hospitality to her. Feeling humiliated and furious, She committed suicide by jumping into the Fire of Sacrifice. Moments later a goddess, blacked and burnt, emerged from the Kunda of fire. That goddess is known as Dhumati Devi who is what left of Sati.
