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. read more...
