Hartalika Teej is one of the main festivals in the top three Teej festivals. The other two Teej are Hariyali Teej (month of Shravan) and Kajariya Tij (Bhadrapada). This auspicious day falls on Tritiya Tithi Shukla Paksha in Bhadrapada and this auspicious day will be celebrated on September 9, 2021, on Thursday.
The word Teej comes from the word Tritya, which means third. This special day is celebrated mainly by married women in states such as Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Chhatisgarh and Jharkhand.
Hartalika Teej Significance and History
Hartalika comes from two Sanskrit words Harat (Abduction) and Aalika (Friend). The word “abduction” should not be taken literally, as it has a deeper meaning and purpose. According to Hindu mythology, the goddess Parvati wanted to marry Lord Shiva. However, his father did not approve, instead, he accepted Lord Vishnu’s offer. Hearing this, the goddess Paravati turned to her friend for help to hide in a secluded place in the jungle. and finally, Goddess Parvati was able to please Lord Shiva by performing severe austerities.
Since then, in this tithi, married women worship Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati and seek their blessings for a happy and prosperous married life. Also on this day, women prepare clay idols of Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati.
