Significance of Hartalika Teej

Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are reunited at the Hartalika Teej ceremony. Goddess Parvati is said to have practised discipline in order to marry Lord Shiva, according to legend. Goddess Parvati practised rigorous asceticism by the Ganga River in the Himalayas. When he saw the Goddess in such a state, even her father Himalaya grew depressed. Maharishi Narad arrived with a marriage proposal on behalf of Lord Vishnu one day.

However, when Goddess Parvati learned about it, she began to weep. She explained to her female friend that she is undertaking this asceticism in order to marry Lord Shiva. Goddess Parvati then went to the wilderness, on the counsel of her companion, and immersed herself in Lord Shiva’s worship. Goddess Parvati created a Shivalinga out of sand during this time, in the Hasta Nakshatra of the third day of Shukla Paksha in Bhadrapada month, and then drowned herself in adoring Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva appeared before Goddess Parvati in his heavenly incarnation and accepted her as his wife after witnessing her terrible austerity.

Hartalika Teej Vrat has been observed by unmarried girls and married ladies for a good husband and husband’s well-being since then. By worshipping Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, they also seek the blessings of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati through this Vrat.
