Significance of Putrada Ekadashi: Why a male child not Female?

yamuna chhath

On this day, people observe strict fast and end (Parana) it at sunrise on the day of Chhath (Monday, March 27, 2023). Yamuna River is deeply connected with the divine Lord Krishna who spent His childhood pastimes on its bank along with His friends. In the Puranas and the Mahabharata, she has been described as the most sacred river that sanctifies even the most sinned.

In the Vamana Purana, it is mentioned that when Sati kills Herself, Her husband Shiva madly traveled thought the world and higher planets, ended up being calm and detached from the worldly or domestic affairs. Lord Kamadeva shot an arrow of love at Shiva who was overcome by a love desire. He plunged into Yamuna River to subdue His sexual urge. As a result the waters became black. Later the dark River became home to Kaliya, a giant demonic serpent who was killed by Lord Krishna. After Kaliya’s death, the River with the touch of Lord Krishna’s lotus feet regained Her beauty.

How to Celebrate Yamuna Chhath Puja: What to do?

On the auspicious day one should get up before sunrise and bathe in the Yamuna River. If it is not possible, one can add little Yamuna Jal (water) to the bath water and take bath.  Chant the following mantra while bathing.

      "Ganga Cha Yamuna Chaiva Godavari Saraswati, Narmada Sindhu Kaveri Jalesmin Sannidhim Kuru"

"In this water, I invoke the presence of divine waters from the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, Godavari, Saraswati, Narmada, Sindhu and Kaveri.”

  • Yamuna is closely related to Lord Krishna. One can offer prayers to Lord Krishna. Chant this mantra: ‘Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya’. This powerful mantra was given by Sage Narada to Dhruva Maharaja as described in the Bhagavat Purana (4.8.54).
  • You can chant Hare Krishna mantra on the Tulasi bead.
