Govardhan Puja is performed on the next day after Diwali and is associated with the Lord Krishna Incarnation of the Vishnu. The worship of Lord Krishna in his gwala form is of prime importance during this day and the Govardhan Puja itself is deeply rooted in the mythological folklore of the Hindu religion.
According to the Hindu Mythology, once Lord Indra got extremely angry with the people of Gokul and decided to show them his wrath with heavy rains and floods. During that tough time, Lord Krishna saved the people of Gokul by lifting the Govardhan Parvat on his small finger and provided them shelter against heavy rains.
The incident is said to be the reflection how one’s belief in God can protect them from any kind of problem only if they remember to seek refuge under their Lord. On this day, devotees conduct Krishna pujan by offering the mountain of food, which represents Govardhan hill metaphorically. The ritual is also a remembrance of God and helps in renewing faith in the Lord. It helps people not only reinstate their faith but also take refuge in the God when the going gets tough.
Performing Govardhan Puja is said to bring peace and prosperity to the family and also bestows blessings from Lord Krishna.
