Gowri Pooja is one of the most revered and celebrated rituals in India, dedicated to Goddess Gowri, who is believed to be the embodiment of power and courage. She is the mother of Lord Ganesha and the wife of Lord Shiva. Women across the country perform this puja to seek the blessings of the goddess and to gain strength and courage to overcome obstacles in life.
Mangala Gowri Puja is an important Vrata observed by married women. It is performed on Tuesdays in the Shravana month, to ensure a happy married life and the long life of their husbands. Women dress up in new or smart clothes and decorate the girls of the family. The ‘sthapana’ of either jalagauri or arishinadagauri is done, which is a symbolic idol of Gowri made of turmeric. Women can also buy painted and decorated clay idols of Gowri from the local market.
To perform this puja, cleanliness and dedication are essential. Women can perform the ritual in their own homes or go to temples or someone else’s house where the puja is performed following set procedures. The goddess’ idol is mounted in a plate with a cereal (rice or wheat) in it. The minimum requirement for performing the puja is five women, who offer kukum and thambulam, which contains five varieties of cut fruits, green sprouts, and thamta (made of rice flour and sesame seeds).
