The festival of Dahi Handi is celebrated with online puja
The Shri Krishna Janmashtami marks the auspicious celebrations of the birth of Lord Shri Krishna. People celebrate this day with a lot of enthusiasm and grandeur throughout the country, especially in the Western state of Maharashtra. A famous sportive event is also conducted on this day, known as Dahi Handi, with online puja
Janmashtami falls during the late month of July or early August, the Bhadra month, on the Ashtami of Krishna Paksha, also known as the 8th day or the dark fortnight. It is said that on this occasion, Gopal had taken the powerful and influential incarnation of Lord Vishnu, in the form of a human being. He grew up in the town of Gokula and his parents were Yasoda and Nanda.
How Is the Festival Celebrated?
Dahi Handi refers to a vessel or pot made of clay which is filled with curd. It is a propitious Hindu festival, celebrated with Indian puja items in which daring and passionate young boys form a large and tall human pyramid consisting of several layers and forming a rigid structure. The aim is to break the pot of curd which has been hanged from a rope tied at a great height (usually away from the normal human reach). The rope is tied at both ends and attempts are taken to break the vessel by climbing the pyramid structure. The Dahi Handi festival is also known by the name of Govinda or Gopalkala festival. People enjoy on this day after buying from pooja samagri store.
This event takes its inspiration from the childhood days of Bal Gopal who used to steal curd from under his mothers’ eyes in his house in Vrindavan. Those people who form the human pyramid are called Govinda. This festival has celebrated over a thousand years and in general, only the males of the family participate in this Dahi breaking ceremony. They also buy premium puja kits online.
The height of the H
The festival is celebrated with great zeal by people of all cultures and ethnicities with puja products bought from the pooja samagri store in India. The Dahi Handi is also done as a competition in which the team of Govindas which break the handi first and in less time is awarded a lump sum cash prize. The more is the height of the handi, the more attractive prize is given. After this ritual, people enjoy sweets and drinks and dance to the groove of religious songs.
