Govardhan Puja

Govardhan Puja or Annakut puja (meaning a heap of grain), is celebrated across India on account of Lord Krishna defeating Lord Indra by lifting the Govardhan hill. The puja is performed on the fourth day of the Hindu festival Diwali by worshiping the heap of grain that symbolizes the Govardhan mountain. Govardhan puja is celebrated to cherish the victory of Lord Krishna over the arrogant Lord Indra. Lord Krishna taught the people of Vrindavan to worship nature. Annakut pooja is performed with immense gratitude, passion and eagerness. It is one of the most important rituals followed across various states of India such as Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Mathura, Vrindavan and Bihar.

Significance Of Govardhan Puja: By offering the Annakoota people show their gratitude towards the Lord. This meal is also known as the Chappan bhog. The puja is also significant as it spreads the message of conserving the natural resources. Worshipping the mother nature has always been an integral practice in Hinduism. The main purpose behind the mountain worship has always been conservation and protection of the vulnerable and precious natural resources.
