Ahoi Ashtami is usually celebrated before 8 days of Diwali during the Krishna Paksha in the Kartik month as per the Hindu calendar. It is very similar to Karva Chauth festival but it is specifically meant for mother having sons. The mothers worship Mata Ahoi (a form of Durga Maa) and do fasting for the long life and prosperity of their children.

अहोई अष्टमी हिन्दी में भी उपलब्ध

हिंदू कैलेंडर के अनुसार कार्तिक माह में कृष्ण पक्ष के दौरान दीवाली से 8 दिन पहले अहोई अष्टमी मनाई जाती है।

Rituals of Ahoi Ashtami

On this day, the mother wakes and takes a bath in the early morning before the sunrise for the puja preparations. A picture of Ahoi Mata is drawn with the red ink on the house wall. A container of water made up of mud ( Kora Karawa) is also kept near the image. The names of depicted all seven sons and moon/sun are drawn in the wall of the house.

The fast practices are mainly performed for the wellbeing of the child. A mother cannot consume a single drop of water and food throughout the day until the moon or star appear in the sky. During the evening, fruits and sweet dishes are offered to Mata Ahoi along with the prayers. When the star has been shown, a pure water stored in Karawa is offered to them.

After the star appears, the mother drinks water from the hands of the child to end the fast. Thus, Ahoi Ashtami is not as popular as Karva Chauth but truly defines the power and love of the mother for their children.
