Know Which Day Is For Which God
Published on September 6, 2019
In Hindu mythology, every day of the week is dedicated to one particular God. Special rituals, including prayer and fasting, are performed to honour these gods and goddesses. Each day is also associated with particular planets from astrology and has a corresponding gemstone and colour.
In the Hindu calendar, days are named after the seven celestial bodies of the ancient solar system: the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
So, if you want to worship all avatars and forms of God, in particular, here are the details for worshipping the deities based on the day of the week.
Which day is offered prayers to which God?
Monday is the day of Lord Shiva and his consort Goddess Parvati. It is said that Lord Shiva is easily pleased. Therefore many people observe Somvar Vrat on Monday. Hindus believe that by fasting, they will be granted wisdom by Lord Shiva, who will fulfil all their desires. In some places, unmarried women fast to get an ideal husband. The mantra ‘Om Namah Shivaya’ is chanted continuously. Siva devotees also read Shiva Purana.
Tuesday or Mangalvar is dedicated to Lord Hanuman. Hindus fast to honour Hanuman and seek his help in warding off evil and overcoming obstacles placed in their way. People who believe in
astrology observe fast to alleviate the harmful effects associated with the planet mangal or mars. Devotees also listen to Hanuman Chalisa on this day.
Wednesday is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. This day is considered important for everyone as Lord Ganesha removes all sorrow and fulfils all the wishes of devotees.
