There is a rain of joy all around. There are many anecdotes in Indian scriptures in the context of the sixth maiya. According to the Rudra Samhita of the Shiva Purana, a six-faced boy was born with the glory of Lord Shiva, who was nurtured by six kritikas (tapaswini nari), from which he became known as the child Kartikeya. Kritikas were called Kartikeya’s mother. These six Kritikas are called Shashti Mata or the chhath maiya.

According to the Goddess Bhagavata Purana, when the childless son of Swayambhu Manu, Priyabrata, saw a goddess coming from a manned plane, the goddess told that she is the psyche daughter of Brahma ji and the wife of Swami Karthikeya. She was called Shashthi Devi due to originating from the sixth part of the original nature. In this context, the third story is found in the Vanaparva of Mahabharata. When the five Pandavas went to exile after being defeated in treachery, Yudhishthira was advised by the sage Dhauma to worship him with 108 names of Surya to avoid food shortages. After this, Lord Bhaskar appeared and gave him a tamrapatra and said that as long as Maharani Draupadi will not eat food in this vessel, there will be no shortage of food in it.

After the purification of the house, body and consciences, the seekers take sattvik food and call this day in the name of ‘Nahay – Khay’. From this it seems that the folk festival is conveying how important Nahai is before Khay. On the second day, that is, the devotees on Kartik Shukla Panchami, after fasting throughout the day, eat kheer made in sugarcane juice and give their fast to perfection. Hence it is called ‘Kharna’. The seekers also spend this day in pious conduct and worship. The third day, that is, the sixth maiya day. Kartik Shukla Shashthi is the festival day of this festival. At dusk, all the family members walk towards the holy water body with the fasting in the bamboo basket, decorated with various dishes, fruits, flowers and worship items made in the soup.
