Vat Savitri Vrat Katha


According to the legend, King Ashwapati had only one daughter.

Whose name was Savitri.

When Savitri became eligible for marriage, she was married to Satyavan.

After marriage, both of them had a happy life.

One day Narad ji came to the palace from him.

After some time, he told that Satyavan's age is less.

Savitri did not lose courage even after hearing this heart breaking ominous news.

And started worshiping God with Satyavan.

She left the pleasures of the palaces and started living in the forest.

At the same time, she was spending her time serving her husband.

In this sequence, one day Satyavan fainted in the forest.

Savitri understood that Yamraj had come to kill her husband.

She kept on fasting for three consecutive days without eating or drinking anything and started begging Yamraj to give up her husband's life.

When Yamraj did not agree to Savitri's request, she started going after Yamraj.

Even after refusing many times, she did not agree, then she was pleased with Savitri's courage and sacrifice and asked Savitri to ask for any 3 boons.

After which Savitri asked for the first boon that Satyavan's parents should get back the light of their eyes.

As a second boon, Savitri asked for the snatched kingdom from Satyavan's parents.

Apart from this, asked for the boon of 100 sons for himself.

Yamraj said good and understood that it is not possible to take Savitri's husband, so he blessed Savitri with unbroken good fortune.

It is said that at that time Savitri used to live under a banyan tree in the forest with her husband.

For this reason, on this day, women circumambulate the banyan tree, wishing for the long life of their spouses.
