Har Chhath 2019: Date, Time, And Significance of Balaram Jayanti Vrat
Boldsky | 21st Aug, 2019 11:10 AM

In Hinduism, every festival has its own significance and importance. It gives ways to come together as a family and celebrate the day joyfully. Meanwhile, when festivals like Raksha Bandhan and Varalakshmi Vratam has ended with memories in the previous week, there are several other great occasions waiting to be celebrated yet. Balaram Jayanti Vrat, also known as Halachhath or Har Chhath is one among them.

Balaram Jayanti Vrat comes 6 days after Shravan Purnima, or say 6 days after Raksha Bandhan. After Purnima, the Krishna Paksha begins and so, it is observed on the 6th day of Shashti marked by the waning moon. This day is important as per the Hindu calendar because on this day Lord Balaram was born, who is also an elder brother of Lord Krishna. To mention, Balaram was an incarnation of Sheshanaga (the serpent) who was born in Dwaparyuga just days before Lord Krishna, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu.
