The fast of Karwa Chauth is observed today, October 24e. Women observe this fast for the long life of their husbands. Fasting is observed to maintain a healthy and happy married life. Karwa Chauth is fast Nirjala, which means that one cannot even have water during the fast. The fast is observed throughout the day and in the evening after observing the moon, the fast ends with the worship of the moon.
Although this time observing the moon seems difficult, the moon may not be visible easily, but these things can be done in order to conclude the fast with all the benefits.
Follow these remedies to fully enjoy fasting without seeing the moon:
- Women observing the fast should have the darshan of the moon sitting on the head of Lord Shiva and worship the moon and apologize. After that, end the fast by worshiping your husband.
- Summon the moon and worship it by law. After that, meditate on the goddess Lakshmi and end the fast by worshiping your husband.
- Pregnant, elderly and sick women should not be concerned if the moon is not visible and they can end the fast without seeing the moon.
- If you are skeptical about concluding your Karwa Chauth fast, you can conclude it the next day at sunrise.
- You can also reproduce a moon on a plate with rice and worship it to conclude your fast.
The scheduled time for moonrise was 8:15 p.m.
