Jivitputrika fasting rules
The Jivitputrika festival is mainly observed in the states of Bihar, Jharkhand and Uttar Pradesh. Jitiya fasting is also very popular in the plains of Nepal.
Jivitputrika vrat is an important fasting day in the Hindu religion. On this day, mothers observe the Nirjala fast all day and night for the welfare of their children.
Jitiya vrat rituals
Jivitptrika Vrat is a three-day festival that begins on the seventh day of Krishna Paksha in the month of Ashwin and continues until the ninth day.
The first day is known as Nahai-Khai where mothers only consume food after taking a bath. The second day is known as Khur-Jitiya or Jivitputrika day. It is the day when mothers observe a strict fast without drinking water (Nirjala vrat). The mother also ties ‘Jitiya’ – a red thread and a yellow thread – on their hand. The Jivitptrika Vrat fast ends on the third day with Parana.
On Parana Day, a variety of dishes and a special delicacy called Jhor Bhaat or Curry-Rice, Noni saag and Madua Roti are prepared.
In western Bihar, eastern Uttar Pradesh and Nepal, Parana is made with Noni ka saag, Maruwa roti, and zucchini vegetable stew.
