Manabasa Gurubara Puja

Manabasa Gurubara (Odia: ମାଣବସା ଗୁରୁବାର) is a festival of cultivation. In this festival, people used to worship Maa Laxmi. It is believed by the people that the goddess herself comes to every household and removes pain and sorrow. It is held on every Gurubara (Thursday) in the month of Margasira (The 8th month of Odia Year). This festival is celebrating in the month of November- December according to the English calendar. In this festival, the woman (Mainly the eldest woman) in a family worships Maa Laxmi.

Manabasa Gurubara Osha had started after the Kartika Purnima in some places of Odisha and after Margasira Sankranti in some other places. So, it's the 4th pali Gurubara in some cases. We had collected some photographs on the 4th Pali of Manabasa Gurubara.
