Significance Of Hartalika Teej

The Hartalika Teej 2024 festival honours Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati’s reconciliation. A spiritual fact states that Goddess Parvati underwent austerity to marry Lord Shiva. Goddess Parvati practised strict abstinence along Ganga’s banks in the Himalayas. Even her father Himalaya grew dejected after seeing the Goddess in such a state. On behalf of Lord Vishnu, Maharishi Narad showed up one day with a marriage proposal. 

However, Goddess Parvati didn’t begin to weep until she learned about it. She explained to her female friend that she is engaging in this asceticism to marry Lord Shiva. Following this, Goddess Parvati went to the jungle on the advice of her companion and she submerged herself in the adoration of Lord Shiva.

Goddess Parvati created a Shivalinga out of the sand at this time, in the Hasta Nakshatra on the third day of Shukla Paksha in the Bhadrapada month, and then she immersed herself in worshipping Lord Shiva. When Lord Shiva saw Goddess Parvati’s strict austerity, he appeared before her in his heavenly form and proposed marriage to her.

Since that time, married women and single women have followed Hartalika Teej Vrat in hopes of finding a decent husband and keeping their husbands healthy, respectively. Thus, by worshipping Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, people also seek their blessings through this Vrat.

Shanti Mantra

ॐ द्यौः शान्तिरन्तरिक्षं शान्तिः पृथिवी शान्तिरापः शान्तिरोषधयः शान्तिः। वनस्पतयः शान्तिर्विश्वेदेवाः शान्तिर्ब्रह्म शान्तिः सर्वं शान्तिः शान्तिरेव शान्तिः सा मा शान्तिरेधि॥ ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः॥

जगन्मातर्मातस्तव चरणसेवा न रचिता न वा दत्तं देवि द्रविणमपि भूयस्तव मया। तथापि त्वं स्नेहं मयि निरुपमं यत्प्रकुरुषे कुपुत्रो जायेत क्व चिदपि कुमाता न भवति॥
