Visvakarma Puja

Dedicated to Visvakarma, the patron god of all Hindu artisans, the Festival of Tools is a workers' holiday in India dedicated to each individual's most important tool or instrument. A pitcher representing the god is set in a place of honor in every home and shop, and before it the people lay their most important tool. Sometimes incense is burned or scented water is sprinkled over the tool. Workers give thanks for their tools and implore Visvakarma's help in plying their trade. After this ceremony is over, people gather in parks or public places and spend the rest of the day with games and feasting. More...

Vishwakarma Jayanti, also known as Vishwakarma Puja, marks the birth of the Hindu god, Vishwakarma, who is believed to be the creator of the world, and is referred to as the divine architect. Vishwakarma, the son of Lord Brahma, is believed to have created the holy city of Dwarka, Lord Krishna’s ruling kingdom and also the Maya Sabha for the Pandavas, other than having created several palaces and weapons for several Hindu gods. He was called the divine carpenter as well as swayambhu, which means self-existent or to be created by one’s own accord. The festival takes place every year in September or October on the day when the sun god leaves the Simha rashi (Leo) and enters Kanya rashi (Virgo), hence the day is also known as Kanya Sankranti Diwas. According to the Hindu Solar Calendar, the day falls on the last day of the month of Bhadra, which is why it is also referred to as Bhadra Sankranti. This year, Vishwakarma Puja falls on September 16. This day is celebrated with much gusto by architects, engineers, as well as skilled labourers including, mechanics, factory workers, smiths, welders, industrial workers and craftsmen. Often one can find pictures of Lord Vishwakarma adorning the walls of factories, industries and offices of such workers as he is considered auspicious by their respective working communities.

Visvakarma Puja

Dia Dedicado a Visvakarma, o deus patrono de todos os artesãos hindus, o Festival de Ferramentas é um feriado para os trabalhadores na Índia dedicado à ferramenta ou instrumento mais importante de cada indivíduo. Um jarro representando o deus é colocado em um lugar de honra em cada casa e loja, e diante dele as pessoas colocam sua ferramenta mais importante. Às vezes, incenso é queimado ou água perfumada é borrifada sobre a ferramenta. Os trabalhadores agradecem por suas ferramentas e imploram a ajuda de Visvakarma no desempenho de seu comércio. Após o término da cerimônia, as pessoas se reúnem em parques ou locais públicos e passam o resto do dia com jogos e festas.
