Phalaharini Kali Puja 2017 Date - Falharini Kalika Pooja



Falharini Kalika Puja is a highly auspicious day dedicated to Goddess Kali in the Jaishtho month in Bengali Calendar. Phalaharini Kali Puja 2017 date is May 25. The day falls during the Amavasya day in the Jaishto month.

Goddess Kali is worshiped on the day in temples and special pujas and rituals are held on the day.

The most important rituals on the day include Kali Nam Sankirtan, Anjali, Aarti, and Bhog.

The rituals and pujas begin at night on the Amavasya day and continue until next day 3:00 AM. In some regions, goats are sacrificed. Nowadays people cut vegetables instead of animals. Sugarcane and pumpkin are cut and offered to the Goddess. A particular type of pumpkin called Chalkumra (ash gourd) is used for the puja.

Sri Ramakrishna Paramahamsa performed special rituals on the day. He used to invoke Mother Goddess on the day.

It must be also noted here that Phalaharini is a form of Goddess Kali in the Tantric school of teaching. This form of Kali is propitiated for destroying the results of actions - all Karma Phala are removed through her worship. Thus no sins due to actions on earth. She is the destroyer of the effects of bad karma.
