Significance of Jitiya 2020

Jitiya celebration is all about mothers vigilantly fasting to protect their children and ask the almighty for their long and happy life. According to folklore, on this day, King Jimuti successfully freed his subjects from dangerous flesh-eating demons. This road to victory was filled with hurdles, however, mothers of those taken began to offer their prayers to the Gods and asked for the safe return of their children. This historic tale, of how the vigilant fasting of a loving mother can save a child from death’s arm is retold during the celebration of Jitiya.

Jivitputrika Vrat is said to be one of the most difficult fasts in Hinduism as you need to refrain from any food or liquids for 24 hours. Women who observe this fast reiterate the story of King Jimuti, the history of this festival and what it means. They also tie the sacred Jivitputrika thread (which is red in colour) on the wrist of their child. Many women also believe that visiting the banks of the holy river of Ganges on this day, and bathing in the holy water will further strengthen their prayers. The celebration of this festival is sure to be home-borne but equally challenging this year. Here’s wishing that you and your family have a safe Jitiya celebration!
