Hariyali Teej's Vrat Katha: Story of Hariyali Teej


The story of Hariyali Teej is as follows: Shiva says, 'O Parvati! a long time ago you probably did extreme tenacity on the Himalayas to urge me as a groom. During this point, you had to go away from the food-grains and spend the day chewing dried leaves. no matter the weather, you meditated continuously. Seeing this situation of yours, your father was very sad and angry. In such a situation Naradji came to your house.

When your father asked him the cause for his arrival, Naradji said- 'O Giriraj! I even have come here after sending Lord Vishnu. Pleased together with your girl's severe penance, he wants to marry her. I would like to understand your opinion about this. On hearing Naradji, Parvatraj said with great pleasure- O Naradji! If Lord Vishnu himself wants to marry my daughter, then nothing is often more important than this. I'm ready for this marriage.

Shivji tells Parvati Ji, 'Naradji, after getting the approval of your father, visited Vishnu and told this good news. But once you came to understand about this marriage, you were very sad. You had considered me Kailashapati Shiva as my husband.

You told your distraught mind to your friend. Your friend suggested that she is going to hide you by taking you to a pouring forest and by staying there, you ought to do meditation to urge Shiva. After this, your father was very worried and sad about not finding your reception. He started thinking that what would happen if Vishnu brought a procession and you probably did not meet at home? They made you search the world in search of you, but you'll not be found.

You were absorbed in my worship inside a cave in the forest. You worshiped Shravan Shukla by constructing a Shiva lingam from the sand. so that I fulfilled your wish by being happy. After this you told your father, 'Father! I even have spent an extended time of my life within the penance of Lord Shiva and Lord Shiva has accepted me by being pleased with my penance. Now I will be able to walk with you on an equivalent condition that you simply will marry me with Lord Shiva only. Parvat Raj accepted your wish and took you back home. After some time, he married us with complete law and order.

Lord Shiva said after this, 'O Parvati! Shravan Shukla Tritiya, the fast you performed by worshiping me, resulted in the marriage of both of us. The importance of this fast is that I give desired results to each woman who observes this fast with full devotion.
