II Govardhan Puja / Katha II

The day after Diwali is celebrated as Goverdhan Puja when Goverdhan Parbat or Mount Goverdhan, near Mathura, is worshipped. The origin of this day goes back to the Dwapara Yuga, and to Lord Krishna. According to legends, he lifted mount Goverdhan on this day and hence the day is dedicated to the worshiping the mountain. Goverdhan puja is offered as a tribute to Krishna's heroic feat. In parts of north India, people make cow dung replicas of the fabled mound, decorate it with flower petals and offer prayers
