“Utho dev jago dev, Anguriya chatkao dev,
Utho dev, jago dev
Kuaran ke biyah karo”
November is considered as the wedding month for Hindu religion. People throughout India and Hindus living outside celebrate this month as wedding season.
This season starts with the worship of God Vishnu and goddess Laxmi ( wife of Bhagwan Vishnu) annually on Dev Uthani Ekadashi in Kartik Shukla paksha. This day we wake lord Vishnu from a long sleep of four months Ashaad, Saavan, Bhado and Kunwaar. The Kartik month marks the start of auspicious ceremonies in Hindu religion.
This year we are celebrating Dev Uthani Ekadashi on 25th December 2020, Wednesday. We also celebrate tulsi Shaligram vivah on this Ekadashi.
Dev Uthani Ekadashi Rituals
Dev Uthani Ekadashi starts from the morning where we decorate our homes with Rangoli made of Geru and Khadiya. The floral motif designs are made inside of Chauk(square). The legs of animals along with Goddess Laxmi are drawn at gates for their welcome in our homes.
On this day we serve seasonal vegetables such as reddish, carrot, banana, berries, water chestnut and sweet yellow dishes in the form of Prasad. A bundle of sugarcane in 3,5 and 11 in numbers are placed on chauk. Jaggery made of sugarcane is good for health because of its warmth properties to the body. Harvesting of sugarcane at the end of November is a ritual that’s why we worship sugarcane on this day before its harvest.
Dev Uthani Ekadashi is also considered as a chhoti Diwali in India. People wear new clothes and decorate their houses for the welcome of Lord Vishnu and his wife Goddess of gold Laxmi.
