Karva Chauth Puja / Katha
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
5:00 PM – 7:15 PM
The term 'Chauth' means the 'fourth day' (a reference to the fact that the festival falls on the
fourth day of the dark-fortnight, or krishna paksh) and 'Karva' is an earthen pot with a spout
- a symbol of peace and prosperity - that is necessary for the rituals. Hence the name 'Karva
Chauth'. ‘Karva Chauth’ is a ritual of fasting observed by married Hindu women seeking the
longevity, well-being and prosperity of their husbands. It is popular amongst married women
in the northern and western parts of India. The Karva Chauth Puja will be held at the
Livermore Temple on Tuesday, October 18, 2016.
