Vat Savitri Vrat Katha

King Ashwapati of Madra country got the boon of having a daughter by fasting and worshiping Savitri Devi for the children along with his wife. Goddess Savitri, endowed with all virtues, took birth as a daughter in Ashwapati’s house as a daughter. When the girl was young, Ashwapati sent Savitri with his minister to choose her husband. When Savitri returned after choosing the groom according to her mind, Maharishi Narad came to her place on the same day. On the question of Naradji, Savitri said that Maharaj Dyumatsen, whose kingdom has been taken away, who has become blind and is wandering in the forest with his wife, after listening to the fame of his only son Satyavan, I have chosen him as my husband. Is.

Naradji congratulated Ashwapati by calculating the planets of Satyavan and Savitri and praised Satyavan’s qualities and told that Satyavan would die when Savitri was twelve years old. King Ashwapati’s face turned pale after listening to Naradji. He advised Savitri to choose someone else as her husband, but Savitri replied that being an Arya girl, when I have married Satyavan, whether he is short-lived or long-lived, I will not give place to anyone else in my heart. Can

Savitri found out the time of Satyavan’s death from Naradji. Both of them got married. Savitri started living in the forest with her father-in-law’s family. Savitri started fasting three days before the day told by Naradji. When Satyavan went to the forest to cut wood on the date fixed by Naradji, she also went with Satyavan after taking permission from her mother-in-law and father-in-law. Satyavan reached the forest and climbed a tree to cut wood. After climbing the tree, he started having severe pain in his head. He got down. Savitri made him lie down under a banyan tree and put his head on her thigh. In no time, Yamraj explained the outline of Brahmaji’s law in front of Savitri and went away with Satyavan’s life. ‘Somewhere it is also mentioned that Satyavan was stung by a snake while lying under a banyan tree.’ Savitri made Satyavan lie down under the banyan tree and followed Yamraj. Yamraj ordered Savitri to return to her. On this she said Maharaj, where the husband is the wife. This is religion, this is dignity.

Pleased with Savitri’s devotion to religion, Yamraj said that ask for anything other than the life of her husband. Savitri asked Yamraj for the light and longevity of the mother-in-law’s eyes. Yamraj went ahead saying Amen. Savitri kept following Yamraj. When Yamraj asked Savitri to return after him, Savitri said that there is no meaning in the life of a woman without her husband. Yamraj, pleased with Savitri’s husband Vrat Dharma, asked him to ask for a boon again. This time he prayed to get his father-in-law’s kingdom back. Saying Amen, Yamraj went ahead. Savitri still kept following Yamraj. This time Savitri asked Yamraj for the boon of becoming the mother of hundred sons. Saying amen, when Yamraj went ahead, Savitri said, you have given me the boon of hundred sons, but how can I become a mother without a husband. Fulfill this third boon of yours.

Yamraj freed Satyavan’s life from his noose after knowing about Savitri’s devotion, knowledge, discretion and husbandly religion. Savitri took Satyavan’s life and reached under the banyan tree where Satyavan’s dead body was kept. When Savitri circumambulated the banyan tree, Satyavan came to life. When the happy Savitri reached her mother-in-law and father-in-law, she got eye light. After this he also got his lost kingdom. Later on, Savitri became the mother of hundred sons. In this way, all the four directions echoed with the fame of following Savitri’s husbandly religion.
