Govatsa Dwadashi History

Govatsa Dwadashi was first observed with fasting, by King Uttānapāda (the son of Svayambhuva Manu) and his wife Suniti. The King and Queen were blessed with a son named Dhruva after their fast and prayers. 

Govatsa Dwadashi Rituals

Cows and calves are bathed, draped in clothes and made to wear flower garlands. Vermilion/ turmeric powder is applied on their foreheads. Wheat products, gram and mung bean sprouts are then given to the cows and calves. People pay their respect to the Holy Cow for their contribution to the sustenance and nourishment of human life. Aartis are also recited for cows. As bulls are used for agriculture, they are also worshipped for their contribution.

Govatsa Dwadashi 2021: Significance

The significance of Govatsa Dwadashi is mentioned in Bhavishya Purana. Govatsa Dwadashi is celebrated to pay tribute to 'Nandini', the divine cow (गौ माता ).  Since ages, Cows are considered holy and sacred animal in the Hindu culture and given the status of holy mother or Gau Mata. Women observe Nandini Vrat on this day for the happiness and long life of their children. It is also believed that any childless couple who worships, feeds a cow on this day and observes a fast is soon blessed with a child. Those who observe fast can consume fruits, sabudana, singhara atta etc. It is also believed that when people see the Dhruva star, their sins are decreased. If possible, people should eat only satvik food on this day. 

Cows represent Kamadhenu and calves symbolise Nandini and are worshipped by Hindu people with utmost devotion. We at www.durganavratri.in wishes a Happy Govatsa Dwadashi 2021, Happy Vagh Baras and Happy Vasu Baras
