Bol Choth Vrat Katha

When Vishnu came to the earth in the form of Krishna, his hair was liked by all the deities. They used to be fascinated by all these things, be it their food Leela or stealing Makhan with the gopis. To see Krishna’s pastimes, a cow from the Kamdhenu caste entered the Nand Gaushala as Bol. Krishna ji liked this cow very much, he always used to spend time with him. Bol also had a calf, when Bol went to graze, he used to remember her a lot.

Once Bol went to the forest to graze, she grazed, she went far ahead and reached a lion. The lion was happy to see him and started thinking of making his prey. Bol got scared and was thinking about her calf.

As the lion moved towards her, Bol told her not to eat it right now, her calf is hungry in the house, she will come back after feeding him, then he takes her as his prey. The lion started laughing at this and started saying how can I believe this thing of yours. Bol then convinced her and vowed that she would definitely come.

Bol goes back to the cowshed and feeds the calf, and after loving it, leaves it there and comes back to the lion in the forest. The lion is shocked to see him. Actually, they are Krishna in the form of a lion, who comes to test Bol. Krishna comes in his real form, and tells Bol that I was very happy with you, you succeeded in the exam.

You will be worshiped by all mankind on the Chaturthi of the Krishna Paksha of the month of Savan and the entire caste will address you as Gaumata. Krishna ji said that whoever observes this fast will get happiness, prosperity, wealth, wealth and children.
