About Govardhan Puja
Govardhan Puja is the fourth festival in the line of the five days festivity of Diwali. It is celebrated to worship nature in the form of Mount Govardhan by the people of Brij but now done by all the regions. It is celebrated on the first lunar day of the bright phase of the Moon in the month of Kartik one day after Diwali. This is also, the first day of the Hindu Calendar called the Vikram Samvat. This festival is also called Annakut as on this day a mountain of foods is offered to Lord Krishna as a gratitude for saving the lives of the people of Brij from the wrath of Indra.
Why Govardhan Puja?
Govardhan Puja is done according to one incident inscribed in Bhagwat Purana. Lord Krishna spent most of his childhood in Brij. The shepherds living near Mount Govardhan used to worship Indra, the god of rain, once in a year. Lord Krishna did not approve of his worshipping and prohibited the dwellers from doing this. According to Krishna, it was Mount Govardhan that provided them with resources and not Indra. That year no offerings were given to Indra, that annoyed him. He thought of punishing the villagers. The angered Indra initiated rain and storm. The villagers were panicked. Lord Krishna came forward to help the villagers. He picked up the Mount Govardhan on his little finger and told all the villagers to come under its shelter. All the people with their cattle took the shelter of the umbrella of Mount Govardhan. It continuously rained for six days but no harm was caused to the people and cattle. Eventually, Indra bowed to the powers of Lord Krishna and Mount Govardhan. From that year Lord Krishna started the ritual of worshipping Govardhan for the natural resources it provided to the people of Braj.
This was the beginning of acknowledging the importance of our natural resources and giving them the status of Gods for their contribution to sustaining life.
Rituals on Govardhan puja and Annakut
People prepare a small mountain of cow dung and worship it as Govardhan Giri. They offer vast varieties of vegetarian foods to Govardhan for sustaining their lives. Chhappan Bhog or fifty-six types of food is prepared and is offered to Govardhan of cow dung. People go round the Govardhan Giri, this is called Parikrama. Food is arranged in front of the deities and puja is done. Later the food is fed to the worshippers. This food is called Annakut.
Some craftsmen also worship their tools to pay their reverence to Lord Vishwakarma, the divine craftsman and architect.

This puja has helped me in fighting with my fears. I was in India for Diwali and my family was very upset with my frightening dreams which had made me snubbed and weak. They consulted many astrologers and were asked to do many costly pujas and other rituals. My friend suggested me to consult Askganesha. It was one day before Govardhan Puja when I consulted and immediately booked Govardhan Puja on their recommendation. Great results
