Vat Purnima Vrat

A festival dedicated to Goddess Savitri and her true love
Vat Purnima Vrat is committed to the supreme divinity Savitri. Goddess Savitri is the daughter of the sun or solar deity Savitr. She is highly proficient, knowledgeable and a beautiful divinity. Her devotion and affection towards her husband discover golden elaborations in great epics such as Mahabharata. The great goddess is also closely affiliated to Gayatri or goddess Saraswati. 

Significance of Vat Purnima Vrat
Vat Purnima Vrat is of immense significance and religious righteousness in Hindu cosmology. It falls for three days in the Jyeshtha month of the Hindu lunar calendar. It is observed on Jyeshtha Shukla Trayodashi, Jyeshtha Shukla Chaturdashi, and Jyeshtha Purnima. The festivity is quite similar to the vat Savitri vrat. The fast is observed for the harmonious health and long life of husbands. Vat Purnima Vrat glorifies queen Savitri who left all the luxuries and married an exiled man Satyawan. He was prophesied to perish after a year of their marriage. The love, dedication, and accurate knowledge of Savitri saved Satyawan from the wrath of Lord Yama, god of death.
