Phala Gowri Festival

This festival is celebrated on the Shravana Amavasya day i.e. before Swarna gowri. This festival is celebrated by the married for the wellbeing of their children.

Phala Gowri Vratha

They make Arishinadagauri(a idol of Gowri made of turmeric) for the Puja. These days ready-made beautifully painted and decorated clay idols of Goddess Gowri can be bought at the market. A Mantapa is generally decorated with mango leaves and flowers. The Arishinadagauri is decorated with vastra(11 alle gejje vastra), flower garlands. A silver Kalasha is decorated with turmeric and kumkuma. The vessel filled with water has kumkum, turmeric, akshathe coin added to it.

The inner rim of Kalasha is decorated with betel leaves. A coconut is smeared with turmeric and kumkum on the mouth of the pot. Rangoli is drawn before placing the Kalasha on a plate or tray which has uncooked rice spread on it. In this festival we need to prepare cradle with the help of gun powder(Mixture of Roasted Chana, Sugar and mixture is mixed with ghee and milk and make in form of cradle and small baby inside that cradle). In this festival sprouts is kept for offering god .The goddess arishinadagauri is mounted in a plate decorated with flowers, and ladies get their Phalagauridaara(a sacred thread with 11 knots ) tied to their right wrists, as blessings of Gowri and as part of the vratha. As it is customary, we first worship the Ganesha idol before any other pooja. For goddess Gowri, we start with Gowri ashtotra and Sahasarnama do the Mangalrathri and take the blessings of goddess Gowri. The next day need to tell visarjane manthra and then take the kalsha believing that god is no more in that kalasha. After taking that prepare some sweet in that coconut used for Kalasha.

Phala Gowri Baginna

At least 2 baaginas are prepared as part of the vratha. Each baagina usually contains a packet of arshina (turmeric), kumkuma(vermilion), bangles, black beads (used in the mangalsutra), a comb, a small mirror, bale bicchole, coconut, blouse piece, 5 types of fruits, 5 types of vegetables.
