Prayers, celebrations on Dev Uthani Gyaras

Staff Reporter, Bhopal

The Dev Uthani Gyaras was celebrated with religious zeal and enthusiasm in the city on Tuesday and various rituals were organized. Mandaps decorated with sugarcanes were set up in the city temples and in the evening large number of devotees thronged the temples to offer worship to Lord Vishnu.

The ritual marriage of the Tulsi plant was performed with god Vishnu, in the form of the holy black coloured Shaligram stone, which is regarded as the husband of Tulsi, in its twenty four permutations. This ritual marriage is known as Tulsi Vivah.

During evening time people prepared floor designs with rangoli and lit diya at the threshold of their houses and burst firecrackers. Lakshmi pujan and Vishnu pujan was observed at evening time with sugarcane, rice, dried red chillies, etc.

Auspicious works will begin with Dev Uthani Gyaras, but the ‘muhurat’ (auspicious dates) for marriages will be after 18 days that is marriage season will start from November 19. Many devotees offered ‘bhog’ of amla, ber, radish, custard apple, guava, singhara etc to Lord Vishnu after offering worship.
