Not only do we worship the rising Sun, but we also celebrate and offer our puja to the setting sun. We celebrate the famous “Chhat Puja” every year from the ancient times.
The ritual of the ‘Chhat’ is performed rigorously over a period of four days. In ‘Chhat Puja’, we perform holy bathing, fasting and abstaining from even drinking water, standing for long durations in pious water of the holy river, lake, pond, or even self-constructed water pools and offer their our prayers to both rising and setting Sun.
आदिदेव नमस्तुभ्यं प्रसीदमम् भास्कर।
दिवाकर नमस्तुभ्यं प्रभाकर नमोऽस्तु ते।।
जयति जय, जय, जय परशुराम, जय भास्कर !!
