Vat Savitri Vrat 2020 Date, Vat Purnima Vrat

The significance of the Vat Savitri Vrat is mentioned in great scriptures and Puranas like Skanda Purana, Bhavishyottara Purana, Mahabharata, etc. Vat Savitri Puja is observed by married Hindu women for the well-being, prosperity and longevity of their husbands. Vat Savitri vrat reminds us of the deep devotion and fierce determination shown by Savitri to win back her husband Satyavan from God of Death - Yama. Banyan tree's root represents Lord Brahma, the trunk represents Lord Vishnu and branches and leaves are Lord Shiva. The Vat tree stands for Trimurtis and those who worship banyan tree are blessed with good fortune. Thus it is believed that the worshipper gets the blessings of all the three gods and grant the wishes for a happy and long life with their husbands. Vat Savitri Vrat fasting starts on the trayodashi day of Jyeshtha month and ends on the Purnima. The fast is then broken on the fourth day. However, many women now observe the vat savitri fasting only on the purnima day.
