Shashti Devi is a Hindu folk goddess who is the protector of children. In Odisha, Shathi Devi is worshiped as the birth Devi. On the 6th day of baby's born in Odisha, people use to worship Sathi Devi at home, which is a little bit different from this Osha.

Sathi Osha Celebration:

  • In the morning of Sathi Osha, people do Somanath Brata for Lord Shiva.
  • Rice, Dal, Fish fry, Chakuli Pitha, and two more veg curry are prepared to offer Maa Sathi.
  • A muller covered with Turmeric Cloth place on the Turmeric and then with the ritual, the mothers do this pooja.
