Today is Ahoi Ashtami. Women will fast for the long life, happiness and prosperity of their children. According to Acharya Dr. Sushant Raj, the fasting of Ahoi Ashtami for women is as important as Karva Chauth. In Karwa Chauth, women fast for the longevity of the husband, while Ahoi Ashtami prays for the skill of the offspring.

It is also a harsh fast, in which many women do not accept water. This fast is observed after the sighting of stars or the moon. The festival of Ahoi Ashtami is celebrated on the eighth day of the Krishna Paksha of Kartik month. On this day worshiping Ahoi Mata in the auspicious time, the life of the child is filled with happiness.

This is Muhurta:
Ahoi Ashtami Puja Muhurta: 5:30 pm to 6.50 pm
Ashtami Date Start: Sunday at 7.29 am
Ashtami date ends: 6.50 am Monday

On this day, mothers should wear clean clothes and fill water in the clay pot. Meditate on Ahoi Mata by remaining waterless throughout the day. According to the age of the child, put as many silver beads in the thread and keep it in worship.

In the evening, worship Ahoi Mata and offer them to Puri, Halwa, Chana etc. Open the fast after eating the Prasad after seeing the stars in the evening. Remove the bayana and give it to mother-in-law, sister-in-law or sister-in-law. Put the garland of Ahoi Mata in the neck of the child till Diwali.
