Somvar Vrat Katha

A moneylender lived in a city. There was no shortage of money in his house but he had no children, due to which he was very sad. In order to have a son, he used to fast on Lord Shiva every Monday and worshiped Lord Shiva and Parvati Ji with full devotion in the pagoda. Seeing her devotion, Mother Parvati was pleased and requested Lord Shiva to fulfill the wishes of the moneylender. Hearing the wish of Parvati ji, Lord Shiva said that "O Parvati. Every creature in this world gets fruits according to his deeds and who has to suffer whatever happens in his destiny." But Parvati ji expressed her desire to fulfill the wishes of the moneylender to keep her faith. On the request of Mata Parvati, Shivji gave a boon to the moneylender but he also said that his child will be only twelve years old.

The moneylender was listening to this conversation of Mata Parvati and Lord Shiva. He was neither happy nor sad. He continued to worship Shiva as before. After some time a son was born to the moneylender. When that child was eleven years old, he was sent to Kashi to study.

The moneylender called the maternal uncle of the son and gave him a lot of money and said that you take this child to attain Kashi Vidya and make a sacrifice on the way. Wherever you perform the yajna, go there while giving food to the Brahmins and giving Dakshina.

Both uncles and nephews would perform yajna in the same way and donate dakshina to Brahmins and went towards Kashi. There was a town in Rathe where the daughter of the king of the city was married. But the prince he was about to marry was Kana with one eye. the prince thought of a plan to hide the fact that his son did not have sight in one eye. Seeing the moneylender's son, a thought came to his mind. He thought why not make this boy a bride and marry the princess. After marriage, I will give it away and will take the princess to her city.

The boy was married to the princess wearing a groom's dress. But the moneylender's son was an honest man. He did not find this to be justified. He took the opportunity and wrote on the princess's sidelines that "You are married to me but the prince with whom you will be sent is Kana with one eye. I am going to read Kashi."

When the princess read the words written on the chunni, she told her parents this. The king did not leave his daughter, leaving the procession back. On the other hand, the moneylender's boy and his maternal uncle reached Kashi and went there and performed a yagna. On the day of the boy's age when he was 12 years, a yajna was performed. The boy told his maternal uncle that my health is not right. Mama said that you go in and go to sleep.

According to Shiva's boon, the child's life came out in a few moments. Seeing the dead nephew, his maternal uncle started mourning. Incidentally at the same time, Shiva and Mata Parvati were going from there. Parvati said to God- Prannath, I cannot bear the cry of its cry. You must overcome this person's suffering. When Shivji approached the dead boy, he said that he is the son of the same moneylender, whom I gave a boon at the age of 12. Now its age is over. But Mother Mother Parvati said that please O Mahadev, please give more age to this child, otherwise its parents will also die in isolation. On Shiva's request, God Shiva granted the boy the boon of being alive. By the grace of Shiva, that boy became alive. After finishing education, the boy went to his city with maternal uncle. The two walk to the same city where he was married. He also performed a yajna in that city. The boy's father-in-law recognized him and took him to the palace and welcomed him and said goodbye to his daughter.

Here, the money lender and his wife were waiting for their son while hungry and thirsty. He pledged that if he got the news of his son's death, he too would give up his life, but he was very happy to hear that his son was alive. The same night, Lord Shiva came in the dream of the merchant and said - O superior, I have given a long life to your son, happy with your Monday fast and listening to the fast.
