Kartik Krishna Paksha Chaturthi is a tradition to observe the fast of Karva Chauth. Women keep this fast for the long life of their husband. This fast is kept waterless throughout the day. The entire makeup is done in the fast. The women listen to the story of “Goddess” in the afternoon or evening. First of all “Lord Ganesh” should be worshiped. The story of the fast should be heard only after worshiping the Shiva family. Give a plate of worship by touching the mother-in-law’s feet. See the moon at night. The moon should be seen with a sieve. After this, looking at the husband with a sieve, touching the feet, drinking water should open the fast.
Her sister-in-law informs her of the truth as to why this happened to her. The gods are angry with Karva Chauth’s fast because of the wrong break. Once Indra’s wife Indrani came to earth on Karva chauth day and Veeravati went to her and prayed for her husband’s safety. Devi Indrani asked Veeravati to observe Karva chauth with full devotion and law. This time Veeravati kept the fast of Karva chauth with full devotion. Seeing her devotion and faith, the Lord was pleased and he gave Veeravati to be always happy blessing and brought her husband alive. After this, women started having unwavering faith in Karva Chauth fast.
A Brahmin had seven sons and was the only daughter named Veeravati. Being the only sister of seven brothers, Veeravati was dear to all the brothers and loved her more than her life. After some time, Veeravati was married to a Brahmin youth. After marriage, Veeravati came to her maternal home and then kept a fast of Karva chauth with her sisters-in-law, but by the evening, she was disturbed by hunger. All the brothers sat down to eat and urged their sister to eat it, but the sister told that today she has a waterless fast of Karva Chauth and she can eat only by seeing the moon and offering it to her. But the moon has not yet come out, so she is distraught with hunger and thirst.
Veeravati’s condition was not seen by her brothers, a brother lit a lamp on a peepal tree and placed it behind the sieve. It looked as if the moon had come out from a distance. Then a brother came and told Veeravati that the moon has come out, you can have food. She happily climbed the stairs and looked at the moon and sat down to eat food by offering Arghy to him. She sneezed as soon as she has put the first piece in her mouth. When the second piece was inserted, hair came out in it. After this, as soon as she tried to put the third piece in the mouth, she got the news of her husband’s death. Read More…
