Chautha is the 4th day from the day of death of your loved one. On this day, family and friends assemble for Shanti Paath and a reading of BhagwadGita which brings peace to the spirit of the deceased. It also brings some consolation to the grieving family members by imparting knowledge about the meaning of life and death. Under certain circumstances this day is observed as the end of the mourning period. The package consists of all the items required for conducting the rituals: ghee, honey, incense sticks, dhoop, mustard oil, earthen lamp and containers, cotton wool, gangajal and matchbox.
