Govardhan Puja is a day to pray to Lord Krishna and day to day to remember and renew their faith in taking refuge in God. It is celebrated a day after Diwali or Lakshmi Puja and falls on October 28, Monday, this year. It is believed that villagers in Govardhan would pray to Lord Indra, the god of rain and storms, during the autumn season, but Krishna, desired that they worship Mount Govardhan instead as it provides natural resources to them and was responsible for the natural phenomena Gokul city. On following Krishna's advice, Lord Indra got displeased and initiated storms and torrential rains in the region. To protect them from this wrath, Lord Krishna took the villagers to Mount Govardhan and picked it up with his little finger. He stood there, unmoving, as the villagers took shelter under the Govardhan hill from the heavy rain. After seven days, when Lord Indra accepted his defeat. Govardhan Puja reminds Krishan devotees to keep refuge in the Lord and have unwavering faith in him. Know Govardhan Puja timings, significance, rituals here.
