Vat Savitri Vrat Puja Katha

The Vat Savitri Vrat is dedicated to Savitri, who saved her husband Satyavan from being taken by Yama, the death god. As per legends, Savitri was the daughter of King Aswapati of Madra Desa. She was married to Satyavan, a prince in exile who was living in the forest with his blind father Dyumatsen. After marriage, Savitri left the palace of her father and started living with her husband and the in-laws in the forest. As a devoted wife and daughter-in-law, she went to great lengths to take care of them. One day while cutting wood in the jungle, Satyavan’s head reeled and he fell down from a tree. Then Yama, the death God, appeared to take away Satyavan’s soul. Deeply hurt, Savitri pleaded to Yamraj not to be separated from her husband. She told Yama, if he takes away the soul of her husband, she would also follow. Yamraj, moved by the devotion of Savitri, returned the life of her husband. Soon Satyavan not only regained his life but also his lost kingdom.
