Why do we break Karva Chauth fast after seeing the moon?
Astrologer Bhatt says that there is no provision in the scriptures to perform Parana after seeing the moon on the day of Karva Chauth. However, it is believed that worshiping the Moon brings happiness, prosperity, and longevity because the Moon was given a new lease of life by the grace of Lord Shiva and its lifespan increased. Moon was cursed by his father-in-law Daksh Prajapati, due to which he suffered from tuberculosis and was losing his shine day by day.
A mythological belief is that when Lord Shiva cut the head of Lord Ganesha with a trident, he fell into Chandralok. Then he was given a gaz mukha. Later Ganesh ji received the boon of being the first worshiper from Lord Shiva. It is believed that his head is in the lunar world and Ganesha is also the first worshipper, hence Ganesha and the Moon are worshiped on Karva Chauth.
