Vat Savitri Vrat

Vat Savitri Vrat is an auspicious day dedicated to married women. The festival is dedicated to Goddess Savitri, who protected her husband Satyawan from the clutches of death.

Significance of Vat Savitri Vrat
Vat Savitri Vrat is a supreme festival dedicated to married women. The festival is observed primarily in Karnataka, Goa, Gujarat, and Maharashtra. The prominent legend linked with Vat Savitri Vrat includes a couple- Savitri, Satyawan, and Lord of death, Yama. Goddess Savitri was a gorgeous and intellectual woman; she was the daughter of a king. Her father failed in finding a perfect and capable groom for her and asked her to get a groom for herself. Savitri found Satyawan for herself. She was told that Satyawan would die a year after their marriage. Savitri still married him; Savitri left all the amenities and lived with Satyawan in the forest. When the day of Satyawan's death came, Savitri was there for Satyawan supporting him throughout. When Lord Yama, God of death, came to pick Satyawan, Savitri stopped him. She persuaded Lord Yama to pour back life into Satyawan by using her intelligence and knowledge. Her love, dedication and commitment weakened Yama, and he gave life back to Satyawan. This story of Savitri’s bravery and her true love towards her husband discovers a glorious note in Mahabharata legend.
