On the great festival of Chhath, Chhathi Maiya is worshiped along with Lord Surya. This festival starts from Chaturthi Tithi of Kartik Shukla Paksha, which continues for four days. In this 36-hour Nirjala fast, women worship Chhathi Maiya on the banks of ponds and rivers and offer Arghya to Lord Sun. This festival is celebrated with great pomp throughout North India. This question must be coming in everyone’s mind that who is the sixth Maya? And what is their relation with Lord Shiva’s complete Karthikeya? Chhathi Maiya is the sister of Lord Surya and the mental daughter of Supreme Father Brahma. According to religious beliefs, Chhathi Maya is called the goddess of fertility. This is why children are worshiped on the sixth day of their birth.
this is their story
According to the story of the Puranas, when Lord Brahma was creating the universe, he divided himself into two parts. One part of it was man and the other part was nature. After this, nature divided itself into six parts, in the sixth part of which Chhathi Maiya appeared as Mother.
