AHOI VRAT (THE FAST OF MOTHER’S BELIEF)

Ahoi Ashtami is a sacred fast observed by mothers for the well being and long age of their son. It is celebrated on 8th tithi (Lunar Day) of Krishna Paksha (waning phase) of Kartik month. It comes on approximately 4th days after Karwa Chauth and 8 days earlier to Diwali.

Ahomi Vrat Procedure (अहोई व्रत विधि )  

Mothers observe the fast whole day. In the evening, they do worship of Ahoi Mata and discuss the story and offerings (नैवेद्य/वायना) to Ahoi Mata (which include food comprising of Poori/pude, Halwa, boiled Chana etc) and lamp (दिया).

Before starting the worship, clean the place properly for Ahoi Mata with Ganga jal. Paint her picture is on wall on Tuesday. Now-a-days, we have printed posters/calendars of Ahoi Mata available in the market that can be used for the purpose of pooja. Put syahu (स्याहू ) at the picture. Also, a Saree can be offer to Ahoi Mata as well.

Now at pooja time, Prepare Satiya (सतिया) and put some grain on that. Place a bowl of water in front of her. An untwisted red colored thread (कलावा) is wrapped around the bowl of water and the edges should be touched with turmeric powder (हल्दी). Prepare a satiya on that bowl as well. Place the bowl to left of Ahoi Mata.

Put some grains and money in a plate and place it in the center of the picture.

Elder lady may start the story of Ahoi Mata and rest of the ladies can listen that. During the story, ladies should have 5 wheat pieces in their hand. Once story is complete, the sweets, food and money are distributed among children, other family members and neighbor. At few places, people follow tradition of making a garland with silver coins. They adds to this garland when a child is born (or in their son’s marriage occasion) in the family. Every year, the Ahoi Mata picture is adorned with this. After the story, water and wheat (which is placed in hand) need to offer to Moon/Stars. And then give the offerings (Saree, Puri/Pude etc) to mother in law and take her blessings.

At the end they break the fast after seeing the stars (At few places, ladies open their fast by seeing moon, but quite often Moon-rise is too late on this festival). It is good to offer Petha (पेठा) to brahmin on this auspicious occasion.

Ahomi Vrat Story (होई व्रतकथा)

एक साहुकार के सात बेटे, सात बहुएँ तथा एक बेटी थी दीवाली से पहले कार्तिक बदी अष्टमी को सांतो बहुएँ अपनी ननद के साथ जंगल में मिट्टी खोद रही थी । मिट्टी खोदते समय ननद के हाथ से सेई (स्याहू) का बच्चा मर गया। स्याहु माता बोली कि मै तेरी कोख बाँधूगीं। तब ननद अपनी सातो भाभियो से बोली कि तुम मेरे बदले कोख बधवालो । सबने इन्कार कर दिया, परन्तु छोटी भाभी सोचने लगी कि यदि मैं कोख नही बँधवाऊँगी तो सासू नाराज होगी ऐसा विचार कर ननद के बदले छोटी भाभी ने अपनी कोख बँधवा ली। इसके बाद जब उससे जो लडका होता तो सात दिन बार मर जाता । एक दिन उसने पंडित को बुलाकर पूछा कि मेरी संतान सातवे दिन क्यो मर जाती है? तब पंडित ने कहा कि तुम सुरही गाय की पुजा करो सुरही गाय स्याहु माता की भायली है। तेरी कोख तब बच्चा जियेगा । इसके बाद से वह प्रातः काल उठकर चुपचाप सुरही गाय के नीचे सफाई आदि कर जाती है। गौ माता उससे बोली मैं तेरी सेवा से प्रसन्न हूँ। इच्छानुसार जो चाहे माँग लो। तब साहूकर की बहू बोली  कि स्याऊ माता तुम्हारी भायली है और उसने मेरी कोख बाँध रखी है सो मेरी कोख खुलवा दो। गौ माता ने कहा अच्छा, अब तो गौ माता समुंद्र पार अपनी भायली के पास उसको लेकर चली । रास्ते में कडी धूप थी सो वो दोनो एक पेड के नीचे गरूड पंखानी(पक्षी) का बच्चा था। साँप उसको डसने लगा तब साहुकार की बहू ने साँप मारकर ढाल के नीचे दबा दिया और बच्चो का बचा लिया थोडी देर मे गरूड पंखनी आई जो वहा खून पडा देखकर साहूकार की बहू को चोच मारने लगी। तब साहूकारनी बोली कि मैने तेरे बच्चो को नही मारा बल्कि साँप तेरे बच्चे को डसने को आया था मैने तो उससे तेरे बच्चे की रक्षा की है। यह सुनकर गरूड पंखनी बोली कि माँग तू क्या माँगती है? वह बोली सात समुद्र पार स्याऊ माता के पास पहुचा दे। गरूड पंखनी ने दोनो को अपनी पीठ पर बैठाकर स्याऊ माता के पास पहुचा दिया। स्याऊ माता उन्हे देखकर बोली कि बहन बहुत दिनो मे आई, फिर कहने लगी कि बहन मेरे सिर में जूँ पड गई। तब सुरही के कहने पर साहुकार की बहु ने सलाई  से उनकी जुएँ निकाल दी। इस पर स्याऊ माता प्रसन्न हो बोली कि तुने मेरे सिर मे बहुत सलाई डाली है इसलिये सात बेटे और बहु होगी। वह बोली मेरे तो एक भी बेटा नही है सात बेटा कहाँ से होगे। स्याऊ माता बोली- वचन दिया, वचन से फिरूँ तो धोबी कुण्ड पर कंकरी होऊँ। जब साहुकार की बहु बोली मेरी  कोख तो तुम्हारे पास बन्द पडी है यह सुनकर स्याऊ माता बोली कि तुने मुझे बहुत ठग लिया, मै तेरी कोख खोलती नही परन्तु अब खोलनी पडेगी।

जा तेरे घर तुझे सात बेटे और सात बहुए मिलेगी तू जाकर उजमन करियो। सात अहोई बनाकर सात कढाई करियो। वह लौटकर घर आई तो देखा सात बेटे सात बहुए बैठी है वह खुश होगई। उसने सात अहोई बनाई, साज उजमन किए तथा सात कढाई की। रात्रि के समय जेठानियाँ आपस मे कहने लगी कि जल्दी जल्दी नहाकर पूजा कर लो, कही छोटी बच्चो को याद करके रोने लग। थोडी देर में उन्होने अपने बच्चो से कहा- अपनी चाची के घर जाकर देख आओ कि वह आज अभी तक रोई क्यो नही। बच्चो ने जाकर कहा कि चाची तो कुछ माडँ रही है खूब उजमन हो रहा है। यह सूनते ही जेठानियो दौडी-दौडी उसके घर आई और जाकर कहने लगी कि तूने कोख कैसे छुडाई? वह बोली तुमने तो कोख बधाई नही सो मैने कोख खोल दी है। स्याऊ माता ने कृपा करके मेरी कोख खोली उसी प्रकार हमारी भी खोलियो। कहने वाले तथा सुनने वाले की तथा सब परिवार की कोख खोलियो।

As per my interactions with Akash bhaiya, I have found him to be a blessed astrologer, extremely talented technically and more than that a great human being. I have known in him for more than a decade (10+ years) now. The best way is that you can disucss astrology very logically with him. He tell you the reason and potential solutions. He is very transparent and all those who have not tried taking his consultancy services, pl go with faith and belief. I'm sure, you will get best solution.
