त्रिपुरा की लोक-कथा खर्ची पूजा

Kharchi puja Tripura me manaya jane wala ek sabse purani aur badi puja me se ek hai, isko pahale waha ke aadiwasi ise manate the. Itihas ke anusar sabse pahale in 14 devi devta ki puja trilochal ne shuru kiya tha, jo mahabharat ke yudhishthir samkalin the. Is puja ki shuruaat kaise huyi iske bare me bahut hi sundar lok katha mashhoor hain. Ek baar tricholan ki patni Hirawati nadi ke kinare puja karne gayi thi, waha par unko kuchh bachao bachao ke swar sunai diye. Ye sunkar rani harawati aage badhi to unhe 14 devta dikhyi diye,. Un sabhi devta ne guhar lagai ki he devi aap hame bacha lijiye. Hamare pichhe ek rakshasi bhaisa hamari jan ke pichhe hath dhokar pada hua hai. Aap hamari madad kijiye usse, ye sunhar rani ne kaha mai to ek sadharan aurat hoo, bhala mai aapko kaise bacha sakti hoo, tabhi devtao ne kaha yadi aap uske sir par ye kapada rakh deti hai to wah aapke bas me ho jayega aur uske baad aap uski bali de dena. Rani ne sabhi ki jaan ko bachane ke liye waisa hi kiya aur sabhi jaan bach gayi.

Uske baad rani Hirawati  apne sath sabhi devi-devta ko sath lekar aayi aur unka seva satkar kiya. Jis din yah ghatana ghatit hua wah ashadh mash ke shukul pachh ke ashthami tithi ke din tha. Usi samay se pratyek saal waha ke aadiwasi log 14 devi-devtao ki puja karana shuru kar diya aur unko apna ishat manane lage.

Inke naam – Uma Hari, Har, Kumar, Maa, Vidhi, Ganama,Ganga, Himadari, Kaam, Sikhi, Samundra, Aur prithvi. Ye jitne bhi devi devta hai inke sir ki murti banakra inki puja ki jati hai. 14 devi devta me 3 murti sone ki hain aur baki murti ashthdhatu ki hai, Uma Hari, Aur Har inke murti sone ke hai. Yaha ke aadiwasiyo me kisi ko in devta ke naam nahi gyat hai, bas pujari inke naam janta hai.

Yah puja Tripura me 7 dino tak chalata hai aur pahle din muhrat ke anusar chantai raja ke vesh dharan karke aage chalte hai,aur unke aage angrakshak talwar aur dhaal liye hota hai aur pichhe chintai. Chantai ke pichhe 14 sevak, jo apne hatho me 14 murti ko liye hote hai. In sabhi ko dhoop na lage iske bash ki chhatri banaya jata hai. Murti ko snan karke le jay jata hai.

Purane samay me nar ki bali dene ki pratha thi, isko raja govind ne 17th shatabadi me band kar diya, uske baad mitti ke putale banaye jate aur unki bhet chadhi jati. Purane time me chantai hi ek din raja ke saman ho jata, wo jo bhi kahata uski baat ko koi taal nahi sakta tha, yaha tak ki raja ko bhi uski baate manani padati thi. Aisa waha ke bujurg log kahate hai. Ab shayad hi aisa ho, agar aap ye pratha ko dekhana chahte hai aapko tripura jana hoga.

Pure saal 3 devi devta ki pooja waha par hoti hai aur saat dino tak lagatar 14 devi devta ki puja ki jati hai. Jin devi devta ki puja poore sal hoti hai unke naam – Uma, parvati aur Har shankar hain aur jo bhi hai unko bakse me band kar diya jata hai karke rakh diya jata aur uski dekh bhal ka jima chantai ke upar hota hai. Kharchi puja ka mandirka nirman 18th shatabadi me raja krishna manikya ne karwaya tha. Yah 57 km door udaypur ke pas me padega.

Kharchi puja ko celebrate karane ke liye waha ke bhari matra me ekatha hokar is parv ko manate hai aur apni sanskriti ko jinda rakhe huye hai. Pahle isko sirf waha ke aadiwasi hi ise manate the lekin ab isko waha ki sari janta manati. Isme unki aashtha aur shradha saf saf dikhai padata hai…
