Basoda (बसोडा) Puja is devoted to Goddess Sheetala and held on Krishna Paksha Ashtami, following Holi. Basoda is sometimes referred to as Sheetala Ashtami. It usually occurs after eight days of Holi, but many people celebrate it on the first Monday or Friday following Holi. Sheetala Ashtami is particularly popular in the northern Indian states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh.

Sheetala Ashtami is most often observed in northern and western India, specifically in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh. Sheetala Ashtami is commemorated by fasting and praying to the goddess Sheetala Mata. Many devotees also do special pujas and provide offerings.

According to Basoda customs, households do not light fires for cooking. As a result, most families cook the day before and eat stale food on Sheetala Ashtami. It is thought that Goddess Sheetala controls smallpox, chickenpox, measles, and other diseases, and people worship her to prevent outbreaks. Shitala Satam, a similar rite to Basoda, is held the day before Krishna Janmashtami in Gujarat. Shitala Satam is also devoted to the Goddess Sheetala, and no fresh food is prepared on that day.

My family and I wanted to conduct a puja since a long time but since we are living in Ontario, Canada, it was difficult to do so and I didn’t know how to arrange for the ceremony. After contacting Online Temple, my job was done and the puja was done by them. We faced absolutely no difficulties as everything was provided by them. Their service is great.
