Teez Vrat Katha | Why Teez is celebrated

 Teez Vrat Katha : Once Lord Shiva told the story of the greatness of Teez Vrat or Fast with the purpose of reminding Parvatiji of his former birth. 

Bholeshankar said - O Gauri! On the banks of the Ganges, situated on the mountain Himalayas, you had gone into deep meditation for twelve years in your childhood. You spent so much time there without consuming food and have only dry leaves of trees. You continued your penance and entered into  the water cozntinuously in the terrible cold of Magh and meditated for me.

Then In the burning heat of Baishakh, you meditated the body with the Panchagni. In the rain of Shravan, you spent time without taking food and water under the open sky. Your father was very sad to see your suffering austerity. He used to suffer a lot. Then one-day Naradji Visited your house ,impressed with your penance and father's affliction. Your father hospitably asked the reason for his arrival.

Naradji said- Giriraj! I am here because of Lord Vishnu. Your daughter has done very harsh penance. Pleased with this, almighty Lord Vishnu wants to marry your daughter.So he asked me to know your opinion in this context.

Giriraj became enraged after listening to Naradji. Like him, all the tribulations went away. Pleased, he said - Mr. If Vishnu himself wants to select my daughter, then there is no point to object it. He is a real Brahm. Hey Maharishi! It is the wish of every father heart that his daughter should become the Lakshmi of the husband's house with wealth and wealth. A father would be happier if her daughter should be happier in her husbands house than her father's house.

After getting the approval of your father, Naradji went to Vishnu and told him the news of your marriage is confirmed. But when the matter of this marriage was found in your ear, then your sorrow could not remain.

One of your friends understood this mental state of yours and wanted to know the reason of that madness from you. Then you told - I have recited Lord Shiv Shankar with a sincere heart, but my father made my marriage with Vishnu. I am in a strange religious crisis. What to do now? Apart from giving up his life, there is no solution left now. Her friend was very intelligent and understanding.

She said - a friend! What is the reason for giving up his life? One should be patient in times of crisis. The meaning of the life of a woman is that in the form of a husband, once she accepts from the heart, she should live with it throughout her life. True faith and integrity have to be surrendered to God. I will take you to a dense forest, which is also a place of worship and where your father cannot find you. You get absorbed in cultivation there. I believe that God will surely help you.

You did the same Your father was very sad and worried about not getting you at home. They started wondering where did you go. I have vowed to marry Vishnu. If Lord Vishnu brought a procession and the girl was not at home, it would be a great insult. I will not even be able to show my face anywhere. Thinking all this, Giriraj started searching for her loudly.

He kept searching here and there, with your friend, you were absorbed in my worship in a cave on the banks of the river. Bhadrapada Shukla Tritiya was Hast Nakshatra. That day you fasted by constructing a Shivling of sand.You woke up throughout the night by singing songs of my praise. Due to the effect of this auspicious penance of yours, my posture started to move. My tomb broke. I immediately went before you and pleased with your penance and asked you to ask for a wish.

Then, as a result of your penance, after getting me in front of you, you said - I have chosen you with a heart as a husband. If you are really happy with my penance, you have come here, then accept me as your ardhangini.

Then I returned to Mount Kailash by saying 'Tathaastu'. As soon as the morning, you passed all the pooja material in the river and passed the fast along with your friend. At the same time, Giriraj, along with his friends and brothers and courtiers, came there in search of you and asked the reason and purpose of your auspicious penance. Seeing your condition at that time, Giriraj was deeply saddened and had tears in his eyes due to pain.

You said in a polite voice wiping their tears- Father! I have spent most of my life under rigorous penance. The purpose of my penance was that I wanted to get Mahadev as a husband. Today I have met the test of my penance. Because you had decided to marry Vishnu, I left home in search of my adorable. Now I will go home with you on the condition that you will not marry Vishnu and marry Mahadevji.

Giriraj agreed and took you home. After some time, they tied the two of us together in the marriage formula, according to the scriptural method.

Hey Parvati! I was married to you as a result of the fast you worshiped on the Shukla Tritiya of Bhadrapada. Its importance is that I give desired results to the virgins who observe this fast. That's how Teez Vrat is celebrated.Therefore, every woman who wishes for good luck should observe this fast with complete honesty and faith.

Har Har Mahadev
