Hariyali Teej is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

When is Hariyali Teej Celebrated?

Hariyali Teej is observed on the Shukla Paksha Tritiya in the month of sawan and coming two days before Nag Panchami.

Significance of Hariyali Teej

Hariyali Teej comes in the month of sawan when devotees throng temples worshipping Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. Sawan Somwar's have a special significance in Shravana month and so is the Mangala Gauri Vrat. Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are regarded as the epitome of ultimate authority, their immortal love as husband wife is what every women and husband wants. That is why women pray and worship Goddess Parvati for blessings for a happy and prosperous married life fasting on Hariyali Teej day for the long life and well being of their husbands. Shiva accepted Parvati as his wife on this day and that is why Goddess Parvati is regarded as 'Teej Mata'. Hariyali Teej fast is as important as the fasting on karwa Chauth day.

How Hariyali Teej fast is carried out?

Married women fast for the whole day, not even drink a single drop of water and the Hariyali Teej fast is completed after moon worshipping. They visit their parents' home, wear new clothes like green lehengas or green Saree and bangles, sing songs dedicated to Teej. Wearing green color is highly auspicious on this day. The Vat Vriksha tree is also worshipped on the ‘Shravani teej’. A 'dhaaga' or cotton thread is tied on the sacred Banyan tree or Vat Vriksha. Though the festival of Teej is celebrated by married women, many unmarried women also fast along with the married ones to get a husband like God Shiva. Women visit the nearest temple and listen or recite the Teej Vrat Katha.

Women applies henna on their hands and feet during Hariyali Teej. Mehendi color on the hands tells about the love of their husbands. It is believed that if the color of the henna on the hand is dark, the more she will be loved by her husband. Women also happen to write their husband name with henna on their hands.

Why Hariyali Teej is also known as Sindhara Teej?

Sindhara, a gift bucket that is given to the daughter and her in-laws by the parents of married girl, particularly newlyweds. It contains homemade sweets, Ghewar and Shringara items like Henna, bangles, sindoor (vermilion), traditional dresses etc. As Sindhara is gifted to the daughter and her in-laws on this Teej, Hariyali Teej is also known as Sindhara Teej. Hariyali Teej is also called as Chhoti Teej or Madhusrava Teej.

When is Kajari Teej and Hartalika teej celebrated?

Badi Teej which comes fifteen days after Hariyali Teej is known as Kajari Teej. As this teej festivals falls in the Shravana month, Hariyali Teej is also called as Sawan Teej or Sawan ki teej. Hartalika teej is celebrated on shukla paksha tritiya of bhadrapad month.

The Hariyali Teej celebrations are bigger in all the temples dedicated to Sri Krishna in Vridavan. Swings are laid for Krishna and this is known as ‘Jhullan Leela’.

Significance of Jyeshtha Purnima

The third month as per Hindu calendar is Jyeshtha. During Jyeshtha month, the Earth becomes too hot and this makes many of the rivers and ponds becoming dry, or their water level going down.

That's why water requirement in this month increases multiple times as compared to other months. Since ages, festivals like Ganga Dussehra, Nirjala Ekadashi, etc., are being celebrated in the month of Jyeshtha by Hindu's which gives a message on how important water is for life on Earth.

Not only on the day of Jyeshtha Purnima but on every Purnima, it is believed that Goddess Lakshmi resides with her husband Sri Hari Vishnu on the Peepal tree. This is why it is said that if a person fills a pot with water, raw milk, and batasha and offer it to the Peepal tree, the person would get easy cash flow.

Also, it is on the Purnima day that arghya is offered to Chandra Dev or Lord Moon Which helps in removing every hurdle coming their way.

Kamika Ekadashi Vrat Katha in English

Kamika Ekadashi Vrat Katha in English

Arjuna said- "O Lord! I heard the detailed description of Devshayani Ekadashi of Shukla Paksha of Ashadha month. Now can you kindly tell me the story of Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of Shravan month. What is the name of this Ekadashi? What is its method. Which deity is worshiped in this? What fruit does a person get by fasting it?

Lord Shri Krishna said - "O best archer! I narrate the story of the holy Ekadashi of the month of Shravan, listen carefully. Once the holy story of this Ekadashi was told by Bhishma Pitamah to Naradji for the benefit and interest of people.

Once Naradji said - 'O father! Today I have a desire to hear the story of Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of Shravan, so you should narrate this Ekadashi fasting story with a law.

Hearing Naradji's wish, Pitamah Bhishma said - 'O Naradji! You have made a beautiful proposal. Now listen to it very carefully - the name of Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of Shravan month is Kamika. Only by listening to the story of this Ekadashi one gets the fruits of the Vajpeya Yagya. In the fasting of Kamika Ekadashi, conch, wheel and mace-bearing Lord Vishnu is worshipped. Those who worship Lord Vishnu on this Ekadashi with incense, lamp, naivedya etc., they get better results than the fruit of bathing in the Ganges-the river Ganga.

The virtue which is attained by bathing in Kedar and Kurukshetra during solar eclipse and lunar eclipse is attained by worshiping Lord Vishnu with devotion on the day of Kamika Ekadashi.

The fruit of worshiping Lord Vishnu with devotion in the month of Shravan is more than the fruit of donating the earth along with the ocean and forest.

The fruit that is obtained by bathing in the Gandaki river in Vyatipat yoga is obtained by worshiping Sri Vishnu on this day.

Worship of God is the highest fruit in the world, so if worship of God is not possible with devotion, then fasting should be done on Kamika Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of Shravan month.

The fruit that is obtained by donating a cow with a calf with ornaments is obtained by fasting on Kamika Ekadashi.

Those who fast on Kamika Ekadashi of Krishna Paksha of Shravan month and worship Lord Vishnu, then they automatically worship other gods, snakes, kinnars, their ancestors, etc. Therefore, people who are afraid of sin should observe this fast with law and order.

People who are trapped in the sins and ocean of world should observe Kamika Ekadashi fast to get rid of them.

Sins are also destroyed by fasting on Kamika Ekadashi, there is no other way in the world to destroy more sins than this.

O Naradji! The Lord Himself has said from His mouth that by observing the fast of Kamika Ekadashi, more fruits are obtained by humans than those obtained by spiritual knowledge. By observing this fast, one does not see Yamraj who is the god of death nor does he have to suffer the sufferings of hell. He becomes the possessor of heaven.

Those who worship Lord Vishnu with devotion on this day with Tulsi leaves, they remain separate from the world even while living in the ocean of this world, just as the lotus flower, while living in the water, remains separate from the water.

The fruit of worshiping Lord Shrihari with Tulsi leaves is equal to the reward of donating gold once and silver four times. Lord Vishnu is more pleased with Tulsi leaves than gems, pearls, gems etc.

Those who worship Sri Vishnu with Tulsi leaves, all their sins are destroyed.

O Naradji! I bow to the very dear Shri Tulsiji of Sri Vishnu.

All the sins of a man are destroyed by the mere sight of Tulsiji and a person becomes pure by the mere touch of the body.

By bathing Tulsiji with water, all the sufferings of a person are destroyed. One who offers Tulsiji devotionally at the lotus feet of the Lord, he gets liberation.

Even Chitragupta is unable to write down the virtues of those who do wake up and night taking names of the Lord and donate lamps on the night of this Kamika Ekadashi.

On the day of Ekadashi, the ancestors of those who light a lamp in front of the Lord, drink nectar in heaven.

Those who light a lamp of ghee or sesame oil in front of God, they get the light of thousands of lamps even in the place of Sun.

Everyone should observe Kamika Ekadashi fast.

By observing this fast, all the sins even killing of Brahman etc. get destroyed and after enjoying happiness in this world, the living being finally go to Vishnu lok or the place where Sri Vishnu resides. By hearing and reciting the greatness of this Kamika Ekadashi, human beings attain heaven.

Synopsis
Lord Srihari is the supreme. He is easily pleased by the unconditional devotion of his devotees. Tulsiji is the beloved of Lord Vishnu. Lord Shri Hari is not so pleased with diamonds, pearls, gold and silver, as much as he is pleased with the offering of Tulsi leaves.    

कामिका एकादशी व्रत कथा, Kamika Ekadashi Vrat Katha in Hindi

कामिका एकादशी व्रत कथा

अर्जुन ने कहा- "हे प्रभु! मैंने आषाढ़ माह के शुक्ल पक्ष की देवशयनी एकादशी का सविस्तार वर्णन सुना। अब आप मुझे श्रावण माह के कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी की कथा सुनाने की कृपा करें। इस एकादशी का नाम क्या है? इसकी विधि क्या है? इसमें किस देवता का पूजन होता है? इसका उपवास करने से मनुष्य को किस फल की प्राप्ति होती है?"

भगवान श्रीकृष्ण ने कहा- "हे श्रेष्ठ धनुर्धर! मैं श्रावण माह की पवित्र एकादशी की कथा सुनाता हूँ, ध्यानपूर्वक श्रवण करो। एक बार इस एकादशी की पावन कथा को भीष्म पितामह ने लोकहित के लिये नारदजी से कहा था।

एक समय नारदजी ने कहा - 'हे पितामह! आज मेरी श्रावण के कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी की कथा सुनने की इच्छा है, अतः आप इस एकादशी की व्रत कथा विधान सहित सुनाइये।'

नारदजी की इच्छा को सुन पितामह भीष्म ने कहा - 'हे नारदजी! आपने बहुत ही सुन्दर प्रस्ताव किया है। अब आप बहुत ध्यानपूर्वक इसे श्रवण कीजिए- श्रावण माह के कृष्ण पक्ष की एकादशी का नाम कामिका है। इस एकादशी की कथा सुनने मात्र से ही वाजपेय यज्ञ के फल की प्राप्ति होती है। कामिका एकादशी के उपवास में शङ्ख, चक्र, गदाधारी भगवान विष्णु का पूजन होता है। जो मनुष्य इस एकादशी को धूप, दीप, नैवेद्य आदि से भगवान विष्णु की पूजा करते हैं, उन्हें गंगा स्नान के फल से भी उत्तम फल की प्राप्ति होती है।

सूर्य ग्रहण और चन्द्र ग्रहण में केदार और कुरुक्षेत्र में स्नान करने से जिस पुण्य की प्राप्ति होती है, वह पुण्य कामिका एकादशी के दिन भगवान विष्णु की भक्तिपूर्वक पूजा करने से प्राप्त हो जाता है।

भगवान विष्णु की श्रावण माह में भक्तिपूर्वक पूजा करने का फल समुद्र और वन सहित पृथ्वी दान करने के फल से भी ज्यादा होता है।

व्यतिपात में गंडकी नदी में स्नान करने से जो फल प्राप्त होता है, वह फल भगवान की पूजा करने से मिल जाता है।

संसार में भगवान की पूजा का फल सबसे ज्यादा है, अतः भक्तिपूर्वक भगवान की पूजा न बन सके तो श्रावण माह के कृष्ण पक्ष की कामिका एकादशी का उपवास करना चाहिये।

आभूषणों से युक्त बछड़ा सहित गौदान करने से जो फल प्राप्त होता है, वह फल कामिका एकादशी के उपवास से मिल जाता है।

जो उत्तम द्विज श्रावण माह के कृष्ण पक्ष की कामिका एकादशी का उपवास करते हैं तथा भगवान विष्णु का पूजन करते हैं, उनसे सभी देव, नाग, किन्नर, पितृ आदि की पूजा हो जाती है, इसलिये पाप से डरने वाले व्यक्तियों को विधि-विधान सहित इस उपवास को करना चाहिये।

संसार सागर तथा पापों में फँसे हुए मनुष्यों को इनसे मुक्ति के लिये कामिका एकादशी का व्रत करना चाहिये।

कामिका एकादशी के उपवास से भी पाप नष्ट हो जाते हैं, संसार में इससे अधिक पापों को नष्ट करने वाला कोई और उपाय नहीं है।

हे नारदजी! स्वयं भगवान ने अपने मुख से कहा है कि मनुष्यों को अध्यात्म विद्या से जो फल प्राप्त होता है, उससे अधिक फल कामिका एकादशी का व्रत करने से मिल जाता है। इस उपवास के करने से मनुष्य को न यमराज के दर्शन होते हैं और न ही नरक के कष्ट भोगने पड़ते हैं। वह स्वर्ग का अधिकारी बन जाता है।

जो मनुष्य इस दिन तुलसीदल से भक्तिपूर्वक भगवान विष्णु का पूजन करते हैं, वे इस संसार सागर में रहते हुए भी इस प्रकार अलग रहते हैं, जिस प्रकार कमल पुष्प जल में रहता हुआ भी जल से अलग रहता है।

तुलसीदल से भगवान श्रीहरि का पूजन करने का फल एक बार स्वर्ण और चार बार चाँदी के दान के फल के बराबर है। भगवान विष्णु रत्न, मोती, मणि आदि आभूषणों की अपेक्षा तुलसीदल से अधिक प्रसन्न होते हैं।

जो मनुष्य प्रभु का तुलसीदल से पूजन करते हैं, उनके सभी पाप नष्ट हो जाते हैं।

हे नारदजी! मैं भगवान की अति प्रिय श्री तुलसीजी को प्रणाम करता हूँ।

तुलसीजी के दर्शन मात्र से मनुष्य के सभी पाप नष्ट हो जाते हैं और शरीर के स्पर्श मात्र से मनुष्य पवित्र हो जाता है।

तुलसीजी को जल से स्नान कराने से मनुष्य की सभी यम यातनाएं नष्ट हो जाती हैं। जो मनुष्य तुलसीजी को भक्तिपूर्वक भगवान के श्रीचरण-कमलों में अर्पित करता है, उसे मुक्ति मिलती है।

इस कामिका एकादशी की रात्रि को जो मनुष्य जागरण करते हैं और दीप-दान करते हैं, उनके पुण्यों को लिखने में चित्रगुप्त भी असमर्थ हैं।

एकादशी के दिन जो मनुष्य भगवान के सामने दीपक जलाते हैं, उनके पितर स्वर्गलोक में अमृत का पान करते हैं।

भगवान के सामने जो मनुष्य घी या तिल के तेल का दीपक जलाते हैं, उनको सूर्य लोक में भी सहस्रों दीपकों का प्रकाश मिलता है।

कामिका एकादशी का व्रत प्रत्येक मनुष्य को करना चाहिये।

इस व्रत के करने से ब्रह्महत्या आदि के सभी पाप नष्ट हो जाते हैं और इहलोक में सुख भोगकर प्राणी अन्त में विष्णुलोक को जाते हैं। इस कामिका एकादशी के माहात्म्य के श्रवण व पठन से मनुष्य स्वर्गलोक को प्राप्त करते हैं।"

कथा-सार
भगवान श्रीहरि सर्वोपरि हैं। वे अपने भक्तों की निश्चल भक्ति से सहज ही प्रसन्न हो जाते हैं। तुलसीजी भगवान विष्णु की प्रिया हैं। भगवान श्रीहरि हीरे-मोती, सोने-चाँदी से इतने प्रसन्न नहीं होते, जितनी प्रसन्नता उन्हें तुलसीदल के अर्पण करने पर होती है।

The ritual of night long vigil, while singing religious hymns, is known as Jaya parvati vrat Jagran.

On the next day, in the morning, the grown wheat grass is taken out of the pot and immersed in the holy water, either in the river or some other water body. After morning Puja, the fast is broken by eating a full meal consisting of salt, vegetables and bread made of wheat.

gauri vrat parvati shankarGauri Vrat is an important fasting period dedicated to Goddess Parvati. Mainly observed in Gujarat, Gauri Vrat fasting is observed by unmarried girls for getting the blessings of Maa Parvati and get a good husband.

Gauri Vrat is observed for 5 days in the month of Ashadha starting on the Shukla Paksha Ekadashi tithi and concluding after five days on Purnima day, the day of Guru Purnima. Gauri Vrat is also known as Morakat Vrat 0(મોળાકત વ્રત) . It concurs with the Devshayani Ekadashi Tithi, a day when Shri Hari Vishnu goes into a state of Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) for four months under the Kshira Sagara (cosmic ocean). Below you can know more about the Gauri Vrat (also known as Morakat) 2023 date and other significant details.

Who celebrates Gauri Vrat?

Gauri Vrat is celebrated mainly by unmarried girls from Gujarat. However, married women also observe this vrat. The Gauri Vrat date begins on Ashadha Shukla Paksha Ekadashi and conclude on Ashadha Purnima Tithi (Full Moon Day) every year. Purnima Tithi also marks the birth anniversary of Maharishi Ved Vyasa, the author of the great Indian epic Mahabharata and concurs with Guru Purnima celebrations.

Significance of observing the Gauri Vrat

Unmarried girls observe Gauri vrat to pray to the Goddess and seek her blessings for a compatible life partner. Goddess Parvati had performed intense penance before she was married to Lord Shiva. Thus, women pay an ode to her and wish for a great husband like Lord Shiva.

How to celebrate Gauri Vrat?

Women who observe this fast avoid salt, vegetables and tomatoes. Also, recipes for consumption are made with wheat, milk and desi cow ghee. Some women observe the Gauri fast for over 7 or 9 days. Wheat seeds (Javara) are sowed in an earthen pot on the first day of the vrat and place it on the altar. A garland is also made with cotton wool and women adorn it with sindoor to make a Nagla. The wheat seeds are watered until the last day of the vrat, when women remain awake all night to sing hymns dedicated to Maa Parvati. And on the next day, the germinated grains are dissolved in water. Thus after performing the final puja, women break their fast.
