Kartik Puja takes place on the 11th day of the month of Kartik, mainly on the Ganges River in Varanasi. This same month also commemorates the extraterrestrial marriage of Saligram Shila with Tulsi. This same puja is mainly done at Ekadashi in Shukla paksha in the month of Kartik. Held on the banks of the Ganges River in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. This day of Ekadashi is also known as Utthana Ekadasi, Prabhodini Ekadashi, Dev Utthana Ekadashi or Bhodini Ekadasi. Tulsi Vishnu Vivah will also be held on the same day.
On Kartik Puja's day, women are known to perform some unique rituals. This same day, Kartik Snan is considered very successful. Akash deep, Deepdaan and annadaan are also performed at Shukla paksha Ekadashi. Many women believe that killing Tulsi will bring happiness to the couple. They wish their husband's long life and good health. According to Hindu mythology, the marriage of Saligram Shila and Tulsi is said to be the most important event. For Hindus, Tulsi is a sacred plant, and the leaves of this plant are an essential requirement for Vishnu puja. Saligram Shila is a sacred stone for Hindus and its origins are in the Puranic era. Hindu mythology states that Devi Lakshmi and Vishnu once fought and eventually cursed each other.
Due to the curse of Devi Saraswati, Devi Lakshmi is transformed into a tulsi plant and is destined to live forever on Earth. But eventually, Vishnu came up with a solution that told him that he was on the riverbank in the form of a stone image and that he would be known as a saligram. It is even believed that Devi Lakshmi returns with her husband when the curse is removed. Marriage is therefore considered an encounter between Mr. Vishnu and Devi Lakshmi, which takes place on the day of Kartic Purnima.
Kartik Puja Vidhi:
The Kartik month in the Hindu calendar is considered the most auspicious month of the year. This is probably due to the fact that it is the only temple dedicated to both Shiva and Vishnu. This month it is considered appropriate to take a dip in the sacred Ganges River. This diving ritual generally begins with Sharad Purnima and ends with Kartik Purnima, known as Kartik Snan.
Tripurasura was a powerful devil and asked that no one could harm him by praying to Brahma. But over time, the devil leaked and the devil began to bother others. According to Kartik Puja Vidhi, Lord Shiva was asked to kill the devil, and that day he did so immediately. Tripurasura was killed and Devtas sighed for relief.
Another legend associated with this day is the legend of Matsya Avatar that Vishnu had to take to save the wise manu from the flood. This avatar is considered Vishnu's first avatar and is believed to have taken Mother Earth from the sea. As a result, believers will cast Satyanarayana Katha on this day to defend strict fasting. On this day, people play Rudra Abhishek for God Shiva.
On this day, followers observe fasting from dawn to dusk. Fasting ends only when you finally complete Shiva puja or Vishnu. According to Kartik Puja Vidhi, those who take it quickly refrain from consuming even a drop of water. However, you can observe mild things and drink milk, water, and soft fruits during fasting.
There are a few basic rituals to follow when doing Kartik Puja Vidhi. First, you must clear the tender range and place an idol of Vishnu or Shiva there. You can decorate the area with flowers, turmeric paste, vermilion and agarbati or loop. Turn on the lamp and agarbati and spray the entire area with water. Also, water the idol and sing “Achyutaya Namah” or “Govindaya Namah”.
While offering flowers, singing the name of God Shiva or Vishnu. You should also make a Shadopchar Puja or give 16 kinds of offerings to God. When done, run Arti and quit Kartik Puja Vidhi in prayer for happiness and prosperity. You can donate containers, clothes, food, and money to the poor. At night, you dedicate Arghya to the moon and pray with your hands together.
The Day of Kartic Purnima has a religious and spiritual meaning. It is believed that worshiping Vishnu on this day will be a huge asset. Kartik Purnima is also celebrated as the birthday of the Tulsi plant. The day of Kartik Purnima is auspicious, and all religious activities carried out on this day bring great benefits. Running a puja, Daan or Snan with Kartik Purnima is equivalent to creating 100 Ashvamedha Yagya. Kartik Purnima is said to provide Artha, Dharma, Karma, and Salvation.
Festivals play a significant role in our day to day lives. We worship different Gods and accordingly there are different festivals that we celebrate to mark the occasion. Festivals provide us with an opportunity to spend quality time with our family, friends and relatives. There are so many rituals attached to the festivals and this makes the entire concept of celebration of festivals even more colorful & exciting.
