2013 Bali Pratipada

Bali Puja is also known as Bali Pratipada and performed on the first day of Kartik Pratipada which falls on the next day of Diwali Puja. Bali Puja coincides with Govardhan Puja. While Govardhan Puja is dedicated to Govardhan hills and Lord Krishna, Bali Puja is performed to seek blessings of Demon king Bali.

Due to boon bestowed by Lord Vishnu, Demon king Bali is worshipped in India during Diwali. According to legends associated with Vamana Avatar of Lord Vishnu, Demon Bali was pushed to Patala (i.e. Nadir) by Lord Vishnu. However due to generosity of the king Bali, Lord Vishnu allowed him three days to visit Bhulok (i.e. the earth). It is believed that king Bali resides on the earth for three days and blesses his devotees during these days.

As per religious texts, the image of king Bali should be drawn at the center of home along with his wife Vindhyavali. The image should be adorned with five different colors. The five colored image should be worshipped during Bali Puja.

In South India, king Bali is worshipped during Onam and the concept of Onam is same as that of Bali Puja in North India.
