Rishi Panchami is celebrated on the fifth day of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month. If a person has ever committed any mistake unknowingly, then on this day, after seeking forgiveness, fasting is done by law. On this day, all men and women, knowingly or unknowingly, ask for forgiveness from the seven sages and observe a fast. If you donate in the name of your ancestors on Rishi Panchami, then you will get success in your stalled works. This year Rishi Panchami is being celebrated on Saturday, September 11.
Method of fasting
Get up before sunrise, take a bath and wear clean light yellow clothes. Purify the temple area of your house with Ganga water. Burn incense sticks there nearby. Place the photo of the seven sages on a wooden plank and place a kalash filled with water in front of them. Show incense to the Sapta Rishis and offer yellow fruits and flowers and sweets. Now ask the Sapta Rishis for forgiveness of your mistakes and take a pledge to help others. After narrating the fast story to all the people, do aarti and feed prasad to everyone. Take blessings by touching the feet of your elders.
These measures will eliminate the obstacles
Take a bath early in the morning and wear light yellow clothes. Take 11 whole small green cardamoms and place them in a plate in front of Lord Ganesha. Light a lamp of cow’s ghee in front of Lord Ganesha and keep yellow fruits. Now chant the mantra Om Vidya Buddhi Pradaye Namah 108 times with a rosary of red sandalwood or Rudraksh. Ask Lord Ganesha and the Saptarishis for forgiveness for your mistakes. Also ask for the blessings of knowledge and wisdom. By doing this, the obstacle in learning will be removed soon.
Wealth will increase with the blessings of ancestors
If possible, make pudding of cow’s milk after cleaning the kitchen of the house. Keep a photo of ancestors in the south direction in your house and light a lamp of ghee in front of them. Put some kheer on 5 different betel leaves and place a cardamom on it. Chant the mantra ‘Shri Pitra Devaya Namah’ 27 times, after chanting these five betel leaves, offer it to the root of the Peepal tree. Make sure to provide food to the needy people in the name of ancestors.
