hartalika

Tithi (A lunar day)

        Bhadrapad Shukla Trutiya

History and purpose

        Paravati got Deity Shiva as husband by performing this vrat; hence, women perform this vrat to get the husband of their choice and to lead a long married life.

Method of performing the vrat

        After a Holy bath early in the morning, the Idols of Paravati and her friend are brought and worshipped along with a Shivalinga (Divine Phallus). Devotees keep awake throughout the night. The next day morning, uttarpuja (Concluding ritualistic worship) is performed and the linga and Idols are immersed in flowing water.
