Hartalika Teej 2020 Date, Puja Muhurat: Among the many Nepali and Indian festivals that mark the second half of the year, is the Hartalika Teej celebration that is observed during Shukla Paksha Tritiya of the Bhadrapada month. On this day, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are worshipped, and devotees seek prosperity in life, along with marital bliss.
According to Panchang, on this day, devotees make statues of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati with sand and worship them. The world ‘hartalika‘ is made up of two words ‘harat‘ and ‘aalika‘ which means ‘abduction’ and ‘female friend’, respectively. According to Hindu mythology, a friend of Goddess Parvati had taken her to a forest so she could hide from her father who wanted her to marry Lord Vishnu, much against her wish.
This year, Hartalika Teej will be celebrated on August 21, which is a Friday. Panchang mentions that the Pratahkala Hartalika puja muhurat is between 5.54 am and 8.30 am on the day, and the Pradoshkala Hartalika puja muhurat is between 6.54 pm and 9.06 pm. The tritiya tithi begins 2.13 am and ends 11.02 pm on August 21.
Due to coronavirus pandemic, all of the temples are closed in the country for all purposes of the religious activities so this year people are worshiping from their homes only.
