Vat Savitri Vrat Katha:
Savitri gets married to Satyavan. Savitri starts living happily with her husband. But after some years Narad Rishi comes and tells him that your husband’s age is very short. They will die in a few days. After which Savitri gets nervous and prays to Narada Muni for her long life. Narada Muni says that this is not possible. But he said that when your husband’s health started deteriorating, then you should go under the banyan tree.
After a few days, her husband’s health deteriorated. After this Savitri took her husband near the banyan tree. Here her husband died. After some time, Yamraj came here and started going towards the south, taking the life of her husband. Savitri was watching all this. Savitri thought to herself that the life of an Indian woman is not proper without a husband. So Savitri started going after Yamraj.
After going some distance, Yamraj saw that Savitri was also coming. Yamraj forbade Savitri from coming back and said do not follow me. So Savitri said to Yamraj wherever my husband goes I will go with him. Savitri did not agree even after much persuasion. She kept on chasing yamraj.
In the end, Yamraj tempted Savitri and said daughter Savitri take any boon from me and leave me behind. Savitri said ok Lord ji as you wish. Savitri asks for the boon of becoming a mother in the boon and says Lord bless her. Yamraj granted the boon. After giving the boon when Yamraj started walking Savitri said Lord how will I become a mother? You are taking my husband. Hearing this Yamraj became happy and said that the daughter who will have Sati Savitri like you there will be no trouble in her husband’s life and he said that on this day the one who observes this Vat Savitri fast her husband will not die prematurely.
Saying this Yamraj brought Savitri’s husband Satyavan alive and went back to his world. Since then the women of India worship the story of Vat Savitri fast with full devotion and faith.
