Reason Why We Celebrate Diwali Govardhan Puja

The religious belief behind Govardhan Puja is that Lord Krishna wanted to break the pride of Indra. For this, he raised the Govardhan mountain on his little finger and protected the people of Gokul from Indra. It is believed that after this, Lord Krishna himself ordered 56 Bhog on the day of Kartik Shukla Pratipada to worship Govardhan Parvat. Since then, the practice of Govardhan Puja continues to this day, and every year the festival of Govardhan Puja is celebrated.
