Teej

Teej is a way to welcome the monsoon, the season when the wind from the Indian Ocean brings heavy rainfall. This is also a celebration for women and is dedicated to the Hindu goddess Parvati, consort of Lord Shiva and patron goddess of women. On Teej, specially decorated swings are hung from trees in every village, and women swing on them and sing songs in praise of Parvati.

On this day, she is supposed to have been reunited with Shiva. More...

Hariyali Teej Vrat Katha

According to Hindu mythology, Goddess Parvati was a great admirer of Lord Shiva who finally reunited with Lord Shiva in her 108th birth. The famous story of Mata Sati immolating herself and breathing her last, a shattered Mahadeva went into a deep meditation. Mata Sati reincarnated as Parvati and was born as Parvat Raj’s daughter, and the first word that she uttered was ‘Shiva.’ She had a keen desire to marry Lord Shiva as she grew up to be a beautiful maiden



According to the legend of Hartalika Teej, Goddess Parvati, incarnated as Goddess Shailaputri, was the daughter of Himalaya who promised her hand in marriage to Lord Vishnu, at the suggestion of Narada. Upon hearing this, Goddess Parvati told her friend of her father’s decision at which point the friend took Goddess Parvati to the thick forest so that her father would not marry her to Lord Vishnu against her wish. Since then, the day is referred to as Haritalika Teej as Goddess Parvati’s female (aalika) friend had to abduct (harit) her for the Goddess to achieve her goal of marrying Lord Shiva.
Parvati left all materialistic leisure to live a life ascetic in a cave worshipping Shiva Lingam and prayed to Lord Shiva for hundred years. On the third day of the bright half of Bhadrapud, Goddess Parvati made a Shiva lingam out of her hair and prayed. Pleased by her complete devotion, that he gave his word to marry Goddess Parvati and hence the reunion was complete.
