Mythology related to Govardhan Puja
The festival of Govardhan Puja is celebrated on the fourth day of the five-day Diwali celebrations. On this day, Hindus worship Govardhan, a mountain in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The mountain is considered to be a symbol of strength and stability.
The mythology behind the Govardhan Puja is that, during the time of the Mahabharata war, the Pandavas were in exile and living in the forests. One day, they came across a huge mountain. They were unable to climb it, so they asked Lord Krishna for help. Krishna lifted the mountain on his little finger and placed it on top of the Pandavas’ heads. The Pandavas were amazed and grateful for Krishna’s strength and power.
Since then, Hindus have been celebrating Govardhan Puja as a way to thank Krishna for his help. On this day, they build small mountains out of cow dung and worship them. This is done to remember Krishna’s act of lifting the Govardhan mountain.
