Story Of Vat Savitri Vrat

A long time back, there lived a king by the name of Ashvapati. He had a daughter named Savitri. This daughter was born out of a puja done by the king to honor the Sun God Savitr. When Savitri grew young, the king asked her to choose a suitable match for her. She chose Satyavan as her husband. Satyavan was the son of a blind exiled king, Dyumatsen. When Satyavan informed his father of marrying Savitri, the divine lord, Narada intervened, predicting that Satyavan was to die within a year.

Even though the news was horrible, Savitri didn’t flinch and remained firm on her decision to marry Satyavan. After marriage, she abdicated her royal ostentations and lived with her husband in the forest. When the oracle of Satyavan’s death drew near, Savitri started to observe fast for her husband’s longevity. She accompanied him into the forest. However, Satyavan fell down near a banyan tree and lost consciousness. Yama Raj came to take away his soul. At this, Savitri insisted on taking her soul as well along with her husband. The persistence of Savitri in convincing Yama Raj with her logic and devoutness impressed the God of death so much that he asked her to take any three boons from him. Savitri asked for the first wish to return the eyesight of her father-in-law; her second wish was 100 sons for her father, and the third wish was to have a son from Satyavan. Though Yama Raj granted her all the three wishes but then realized after Savitri’s logic about how could she bear a son without her husband that Yama wanted to take away. Yama finally madeSatyavan alive.

Thence the ritual of Vat Savitri Vrat came into being.
