Shamba Dasami 2023 date, wishes, rituals

2023 Samba Dashami date: 1 January 2023

It's Shamba Dasami (Odia: ଶାମ୍ବ ଦଶମୀ or ସାତଘଡ଼ି) and in this day,  we do worship to Lord Sun and offer him different types of fruits, sweets, dishes and the main thing of this festival is, there is no specific item to be offered. We could choose one or more items for one person and it was chosen on the 1st Samba Dasami of the baby and the only rule is you have to offer that same thing every year till his/her death.

According to Hindu mythology, on this day, Shamba, the son of Lord Krishna cured of leprosy, and from that day, mothers used to offer prasad to Lord Sun.
