Santoshi Maa Vrat | Every Friday Vrat | Vrat Katha | Vrat Puja | Santoshi Ma Vrat Aarti | Images

Santoshi Maa Vrat- Every Friday Vrat

The purpose of observing weekday fast is to get the favorable results from the nine planets. Hence, the weekday fasts are considered significant. This Vrat is kept on a specific day of a week. Weekday fast are mainly observed to reduce the unfavorable conditions and defects of planets. Also, these fast are observed to please different God and Goddess of different days. Like on Tuesday, Lord Hanuman is worshipped. On Friday Goddess is worshipped for getting happiness and wealth.

Friday fast is done for Lord Shukra (Venus), Goddess Santoshi. Goddess Vaibhav Lakshmi is also worshiped on this day. All these three fasts are observed in different ways.

Santoshi Maa Vratkatha

Once there was an old lady. She had only one son. After the marriage of her son, she used to make her daughter-in-law do all the house work. But, she never gave her proper food. Boy used to see all these things, but could never say anything to his mother. His wife was busy the whole day in work. She used to make cow dung cakes, prepare chapattis, clean the utensils, wash clothes. Doing all these works her day used to get over.



After lot of thinking and planning, the boy said to his mother “Mother, I am going abroad.” Mother liked the thing and gave him permission to go. After this, he went to his wife and said “I am going abroad. Give me a token of yours.” Wife said “I don’t have anything as a sign to give you.” Saying this, she fell in the feet of her husband and started crying. Because of this, a mark of hand mixed in cow dung was made on the shoes of man.

Oppression of the old lady increased after the going of son. Once, her daughter-in-law became very upset and went to the temple. There she saw many women worshiping. She enquired about the fast from those ladies. They said, they were observing the fast of Goddess Santoshi. They also said, by this fast all sorts of sufferings are vanished.

Women told her that, on Friday after completing the routine work, Puja of Santoshi Mata should be done with full faith by taking pure water in a pot with gram and jaggery. Don’t eat any thing with a sour taste nor gift to anyone. Have meal only once.


Hearing the procedure of fast, she started observing it with full patience on every Friday. By the grace of Goddess, a letter came from her husband. After some day, he had sent money as well. She became happy and again observed the fast. She went to the temple and told all the ladies that she received the letter and money from her husband by the blessings of Goddess Santoshi. She said “O mother! When my husband will return back, I will do the Udyapan (Conclusion) of the fast.

Once Goddess Santoshi came in the dream of her husband and asked the reason of his not going back home. Then he replied that all items of Seth(moneylender) were not sold. And, money had also not come up till now. Next day he told everything of the dream to Seth and asked permission to go home. But, the Seth refused. By the grace of Goddess, many buyers came and purchased gold, silver and many other things. The indebted also returned money. Now the moneylender allowed him to go back home.

After going home, he gave lot of money to his mother and wife. Then, wife said to do the Udyapan of the Vrat of Goddess Santoshi. She invited everyone and did all the preparations for Udyapan. A lady living nearby started feeling jealous seeing her happiness. The lady taught her children to ask for sour food item while having meal.

At the time of Udyapan, children started insisting to have sour stuff. Daughter-in-law gave the children some money to make them quiet. Children went to shop and started eating tamarind, brought from that money. Goddess got angry and showed wrath on her. Servants of king caught her husband and stated taking him. Then some one told her, children ate Imli of the money, during Udyapan. She again took the resolution of doing the Udyapan of Vrat.

After taking the resolution when see was coming out of the temple, she saw her husband approaching to her. Husband said that the king is asking for the tax of the money earned. Next Friday, she again did the Udyapan of fast in a systematic manner. Goddess Santoshi was pleased. After nine month, the lady gave birth to a beautiful son. Now the mother, husband and wife, all started living happily by the grace of Goddess Santoshi.

World Population Day Date

The World Population Day 2017 and every year will be celebrated on July 11 with the theme ‘Family Planning: Empowering People, Developing Nations‘. This year, the theme of World Population Day aims at providing safe, voluntary family planning to the people around the world and in a way, help in curbing the population growth.

World Population Day History

In 1987 there was an event called “Five Billion Day”, which recognized when the human population boiled over the 5 billion mark. Since then the United Nations Development Programme has been working to anticipate, support, and offset the needs of a rapidly growing population. The population had been deemed to be growing out of control, and an awareness was being spread about the need for family planning, ways to offset poverty, and the ability to ensure that proper maternal health was observed.

 

The existing strain of supporting our present population is already causing grievous crimes in the areas of human rights and gender equality. As more people come into an a world that’s already doing a poor job of taking care of its citizens, there are more and more of them coming vulnerable to human rights violations such as human trafficking and child labor. World Population Day reminds us that we are part of an ever growing world, and that to ensure there’s a great future ahead for any of us, there has to be a great future for all of us.

As per legend, Maharaja Devanarayana of Chempakasseri constructed a temple at Ambalappuzha as instructed by the royal priest. However just before the deity installation he was informed that the deity wasn't auspicious. The king was troubled, but his minister suggested a solution to bring down the beautiful idol of Sree Krishna from the Karikulam temple in Kurichi. The minister along with few others went to Kurichi and returned with the idol. While returning they stopped at Champakulam to spent the night and carry out a puja. Next morning from the entire region, boats gather to accompany the idol in a colorful ceremonial procession to the Temple.
