Aighara Purnima

Aighara or Aighara Pune is a traditional Oriya mass festival. On this day, the worship of the fire god is celebrated. In many states of India, including Odisha, the festival is celebrated in different ways. In it, a bamboo rope is placed in an open courtyard at the head of the village, and a fire god is placed in a straw hut. The flames originating from the black body of the blacksmith are collected in the shell and stored in flour made of straw. For this, the fire is collected after the blacksmith of the village wipes his shawl and worships it with the help of a sharp instrument. During the fire festival in the evening, the Brahmin priest worships Agnidev and connects the fire to the Agira made by the Shan Agni provided by Kamar. Aghi is burnt and various offerings are offered in the fire. Devotees chant and dig around the fire and throw potatoes, eggplants and other fruits into the fire. People believe that; Eating burnt fruit does not cause skin diseases in the human body. It is also believed that rice is a good crop in the direction in which the fire burns. The Magh Purnami festival is an agricultural festival. This is because plows made of iron, shovels, shovels, shovels, and sawdust are used for agricultural purposes. So the fire of the blacksmith’s shawl is the black god of the blacksmith. After the Magh Purnami, the villagers perform the chanting of their houses after the worship of the fire goddess, Agni Deva. There is a saying, “There is no danger of the house burning.
