Adhukh Navami – Aduka Navmi – Men Remember Their Dead Wives

Adhukh Navami is a ritual observed in the Bhadrapad Month. The rituals on the day are dedicated to Goddess Shakti. In some regions, worship is offered to Goddess Gauri. Adhukh Navami 2018 date is October 3. Aduka Navmi is observed on the ninth day during the Shukla Paksha or waxing phase of moon in the Bhadrapad month as per traditional Hindu calendar followed in North India.

Widowers (men who had lost their wives) offer food to the poor – especially to a poor married woman. In some places dry food is offered to the poor people.

Women offer worship to Goddess Shakti for a good and prosperous year for the family.

The day is also known as Avidhava Navami.
