Rules and Traditions of Gauri Visarjan

The immersion of Gauri also has a set of traditional customs that are to be followed. There is a special puja of the Goddess and Ganpati before the visarjan, it is called as Uttar Puja. A special naivedya or prasad of cooked puffed rice and curd is offered. A bundle of this prasad is kept in the basket of Gauri during visarjan, it is believed she takes this food on her way back to the divine. People pray one last time, perform aarti, seek her blessings and offer flowers to her. Some women also make an offering to other women which includes the haldi-kumkum, fruits, bangles, flowers, leaves and makeup items. Before taking the idol for visarjan, some even take the idol through their home. It is said that Goddess Gauri gives her blessings to the home. During the visarjan, one must have a clean heart and mind and pray for their early arrival next year. Women also sing some traditional songs to bid a farewell.

The traditions of Uttar Puja for Gauri Ganesha may differ in different households. But overall a good, happy farewell is given to the Goddess and people seek blessings. This year, because of the pandemic, people have been advised to do the immersion process within their homes itself. Have a safe Gauri Visarjan!
