Happy Ahoi Ashtami 2021! As we just celebrated Durga Puja and Karwa Chauth, we are here with this fasting celebration called Ahoi Ashtami. The day is celebrated every year on the Ashtami date of the Krishna Paksha of Kartik month. This year Ahoi Ashtami will be celebrated on October 28. Along with Ahoi Mata, Lord Shiva and Parvati are worshiped on this fasting celebration. On this day, mothers keep fast throughout the day and break the fast by looking at the stars at night. On this day mothers worship the Ahoi form of Mother Parvati and observe a waterless fast throughout the day for the long life of their children. In the evening, after seeing the stars in the sky and offering Arghya, women break the fast. Know more about the auspicious time of this fast, puja vidhi, vrat katha and bhog.
