By observing this vrata, women believe that they will be blessed with long lasting and successful married life. Story behind this vratha: Once upon a time there lived a rich childless businessman. He prayed to God everyday to bestow him with children. The couple are saddened to hear this and they ask the sanyasi what they should do to beget children.
The sanyasi asked them to perform Mangala Gowri pooja. The couple performed the pooja with a lot of devotion and hope. Goddess Gowri appeared before them and asked them whether they want an intelligent son who will live up to 16 years or a dumb son who will live up to It was a tough choice for the couple but they ask for an intelligent son.
Soon a son is born to the couple and they name him Shiva. They take good care of him and as he reached the age of 16, they sent him to Kashi along with his maternal uncle. On the way to Kashi Shiva is married to a girl called Susheela. To avoid this she tells her to feed the snake with milk and to keep an empty mud pot next to it. Goddess Gowri also tells her that the snake will enter the pot and she has to close the pot with a blouse piece.
Susheela does as she was instructed by goddess Gowri and gives away the pot with the snake to her mother. Her mother opened the pot to find a beautiful necklace inside. She puts it lovingly on her daughter. Shiva gets up the next morning, and leaves for Kashi. He comes back after visiting the temple in Kashi with blessings from learned gurus and pandits. Shiva had heard that his wife Susheela was in the habit of feeding all the people who passed her city. He sat among the people to partake the food and while Susheela was serving him, she recognized Shiva as her husband.
They are happily united and Shiva sends word for his parents to join them. Related Images:.
