Budhaastami Wrata


Budhaastami brings several dimensions and devotion, Lord Shiva and Parwati are especially worshiped and prayed on this day, and people observe fasting and visit temples. According to the Sanatan legend, it is believed that one who observes this day of Budhaastami, never goes to hell, after death. Observers also seek divine blessings with prosperity for wellbeing in their lives.

Devotees also worship Budha Graha (Planet Mercury) and ask for his blessings. People with Budha doshas in their planetary locations are strongly prescribed to fast and worship this day. Special Naivedya is prepared and offered to Lord Buddha on this day, devotees worship Lord Budhha's idol inscribed in silver or on the gold coin, water-filled Kalash and green unpeeled coconut is placed atop, several rituals are performed to appease Lord Buddha. The observer of this Vrata is believed to gain freedom from his/her sins and also escapes from going to hell.

Happy Budhaastami.

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
