Karva Chauth Vrat Katha in Hindi

बहुत समय पहले इन्द्रप्रस्थपुर के एक शहर में वेदशर्मा नाम का एक ब्राह्मण रहता था। वेदशर्मा का विवाह लीलावती से हुआ था जिससे उसके सात महान पुत्र और वीरावती नाम की एक गुणवान पुत्री थी। क्योंकि सात भाईयों की वह केवल एक अकेली बहन थी जिसके कारण वह अपने माता-पिता के साथ-साथ अपने भाईयों की भी लाड़ली थी।

जब वह विवाह के लायक हो गयी तब उसकी शादी एक उचित ब्राह्मण युवक से हुई। शादी के बाद वीरावती जब अपने माता-पिता के यहाँ थी तब उसने अपनी भाभियों के साथ पति की लम्बी आयु के लिए करवा चौथ का व्रत रखा। करवा चौथ के व्रत के दौरान वीरावती को भूख सहन नहीं हुई और कमजोरी के कारण वह मूर्छित होकर जमीन पर गिर गई।

सभी भाईयों से उनकी प्यारी बहन की दयनीय स्थिति सहन नहीं हो पा रही थी। वे जानते थे वीरावती जो कि एक पतिव्रता नारी है चन्द्रमा के दर्शन किये बिना भोजन ग्रहण नहीं करेगी चाहे उसके प्राण ही क्यों ना निकल जायें। सभी भाईयों ने मिलकर एक योजना बनाई जिससे उनकी बहन भोजन ग्रहण कर ले। उनमें से एक भाई कुछ दूर वट के वृक्ष पर हाथ में छलनी और दीपक लेकर चढ़ गया। जब वीरावती मूर्छित अवस्था से जागी तो उसके बाकी सभी भाईयों ने उससे कहा कि चन्द्रोदय हो गया है और उसे छत पर चन्द्रमा के दर्शन कराने ले आये। वीरावती ने कुछ दूर वट के वृक्ष पर छलनी के पीछे दीपक को देख विश्वास कर लिया कि चन्द्रमा वृक्ष के पीछे निकल आया है। अपनी भूख से व्याकुल वीरावती ने शीघ्र ही दीपक को चन्द्रमा समझ अर्घ अर्पण कर अपने व्रत को तोड़ा। वीरावती ने जब भोजन करना प्रारम्भ किया तो उसे अशुभ संकेत मिलने लगे। पहले कौर में उसे बाल मिला, दुसरें में उसे छींक आई और तीसरे कौर में उसे अपने ससुराल वालों से निमंत्रण मिला। पहली बार अपने ससुराल पहुँचने के बाद उसने अपने पति के मृत शरीर को पाया।

अपने पति के मृत शरीर को देखकर वीरावती रोने लगी और करवा चौथ के व्रत के दौरान अपनी किसी भूल के लिए खुद को दोषी ठहराने लगी। वह विलाप करने लगी। उसका विलाप सुनकर देवी इन्द्राणी जो कि इन्द्र देवता की पत्नी है, वीरावती को सान्त्वना देने के लिए पहुँची।

वीरावती ने देवी इन्द्राणी से पूछा कि करवा चौथ के दिन ही उसके पति की मृत्यु क्यों हुई और अपने पति को जीवित करने की वह देवी इन्द्राणी से विनती करने लगी। वीरावती का दुःख देखकर देवी इन्द्राणी ने उससे कहा कि उसने चन्द्रमा को अर्घ अर्पण किये बिना ही व्रत को तोड़ा था जिसके कारण उसके पति की असामयिक मृत्यु हो गई। देवी इन्द्राणी ने वीरावती को करवा चौथ के व्रत के साथ-साथ पूरे साल में हर माह की चौथ को व्रत करने की सलाह दी और उसे आश्वासित किया कि ऐसा करने से उसका पति जीवित लौट आएगा।

इसके बाद वीरावती सभी धार्मिक कृत्यों और मासिक उपवास को पूरे विश्वास के साथ करती। अन्त में उन सभी व्रतों से मिले पुण्य के कारण वीरावती को उसका पति पुनः प्राप्त हो गया।
