Pugga Vrat/ Pugge Ka Vrat: observed mainly in Jammu by the Dogras (Duggar community).It is observed for the wellbeing of children.

Pugga Vrat is observed on the fourth day during the waning phase of moon in Magh Month (Krishna Paksha) Chaturthi as per traditional Hindu lunar calendar in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pugga is a traditional sweet made with sesame seeds and jaggery. It is a very strict fast where women do not even take water till they open their fast by offering arghya to moon.

They open their fast by eating pugga, with milk & banana, they can also consume radish and sugarcane however no ann/grains.

Pugga Vrat katha is about a woman who accidentally kills the young baby of an animal in forest. Even though she repents, she losses all her children. She then performs Pugga vrat and due to her vrat she gets all her kids back.

Ever since mothers perform pugga vrat for long life & safety of their kids 🙏🏼 Maa shakti 🙏🏼 Nari Shakti 🙏🏼Art courtesy: Medhavi Sharma#connectingdogras
