Swasthani Brata Katha – Story of Swasthani Brata of Nepal

Swasthani Brata Katha, a very famous ritual or brata dedicated to Goddess Swasthani, is observed in Nepal and some other Himalayan regions during Poush month (January – February).

This is a month-long festival during when apart from Goddess Swasthani Puja Swasthani Brat Katha is recited everyday. This festival begins on Poush Purnima and ends on Magh Purnima. The last day of the month-long fast is called ‘Sangay.

Swasthani Brata Katha is a festival of women, celebrated with observing strict fasting. Generally, Goddess Swasthani is portrayed as a four-handed (Chaturbhuja) deity with Charka, Trishul (trident), sword and lotus in each hand sitting at the middle while Ashtamatrika devatas (eight Goddesses of power) – Mahakali, Vaishnavi, Brahmi, Maheshwari, Koumari Devi or Kaumareshwari, Varahi, Indrani or Aindri, and Chamunda painted around her.
