Wouldn’t you like to know that Rishi Panchami — is celebrated two days after Hartalika Teej and a day after Ganesh Chaturthi
Rishi Panchami or Bhadrapada is celebrated on the day of Shukla Panchami i.e. two days after Hartalika Teej and one day after Ganesh Chaturthi.
Rishi Panchami is a special fast observed by women to pay respect to the Sapt Rishis (seven sages) and to purify themselves from the impurities caused during women’s menstruation.
Rishi Panchami-Why is Shri Rishi Panchami celebrated:-
Purity is given the highest priority according to Hinduism and there are strict guidelines to maintain the body and soul pure. In Hinduism, women are considered impure during menstruation and hence during this period, women are not allowed to cook in the kitchen or participate in any religious activities. Neglecting these guidelines increases menstrual dysfunction. To get rid of Rajswala Dosha, it is advised to observe Rishi Panchami fast. Rishi Panchami is more popular among Nepalese Hindus. In some places, the three-day Hartalika Teej fast ends on Rishi Panchami.
