Rishi Panchami on 20th September 2023 is an important festival in the Hindu calendar. It is celebrated on the fifth day of the Shukl Paksha of the month of Bhadrapada. On this day, the Saptarishis (seven sages) are worshipped.
The Saptarishis are said to be the ancestors of the human race. They are believed to be the source of knowledge and wisdom. Worshipping the Saptarishis is believed to bring peace, prosperity, and good fortune.
In addition to worshipping the Saptarishis, Rishi Panchami is also a day for women to atone for any religious mistakes they may have made during menstruation. Women who observe the Rishi Panchami fast are believed to be cleansed of their sins and to be blessed with a happy and prosperous life
The benefit of Worship is definitely Obtained. The most important aspect of any worship is the name and lineage. Your identity is determined by your name and lineage, regardless of where you reside in the world. Thus, it is determined for whom the worship is being conducted and who will receive the fruits of the worship. Any problem, illness, or flaw can be resolved through worship rituals performed with the recitation of the name and lineage. Therefore, by reciting your name and lineage in any pilgrimage site or temple, you can receive the benefits of the worship.
If you do not know your lineage (gotra), in this situation, you can consider your lineage as Kshyapa because Rishi Kshyapa is a sage whose descendants can be found in every caste. Therefore, he is considered a revered sage. The priest will chant these details during the worship.
