Teej Event is a prominent Hindu festival. Single ladies and women who are married both take part in the festival of Teej called Hartalika. The event is held in celebration of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, the heavenly pair. In the Hindu calendar, this occurs on the third day of the fortnight called Bhadrapada, during the Shukla Paksha ( fortnight). This holiday is celebrated as a time of wedded happiness for women.
We commemorate Hartalika Teej for several reasons, some of which include:
Hatarika Teej is celebrated to remember the divine relationship that Shiva and Parvati, the husband and wife of Shiva, share.
In Hindu mythology, Parvati finds Shiva as her spouse on the auspicious day of the harvest festival called Hartalika Teej. On this day, Lord Shiva invited his consort Parvati to be his life partner. It is regarded to be fortunate for both men and women to have the day off on Thursdays. Wife, if you are reading this, know that we ladies will be praying to Goddess Parvati for your future success on Teej night. Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva are worshipped for blessing and welfare of their wives and healthy offspring, using sand.
What is the Story of Hartalika Teej?
The Great Hartalika Teej’s legacy is well known for the storey linked with it. ‘Harat’ and ‘Aalika’ form the name of the economic or political action known as a Hartalika. When talking about the concept of ‘harassment’, ‘harat’ involves kidnapping, and ‘Aalika’ denotes sakhi (female companion). This is believed to be the case that Parvati, at an early age, began to adore Lord Shiva. So impressed was Lord Vishnu by her unyielding endeavour that he despatched his ambassador sage Narayana to her father with a proposal of marriage.
However, Paravati became extremely angry when she found out about this proposition. She told her pal that her prayers were for Lord Shiva, whom she wanted to marry. Realizing that she was in a difficult situation, her companion helped the Goddess Parvati go out of the jungle and concealed her, while she continued to pray for Lord Shiva. Finally, before Goddess Parvati Lord Shiva arrived and accepted her as his bride.
