History and Significance
Hariyali Teej is a highly auspicious festival for Hindus and especially Hindu married women. Women belonging to the months of Jharkhand, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan commemorate this day by keeping 24 hrs nirjala vrat in which fasting is done without water. Women pray to Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati for their husbands’ prosperous and long lives.
This festival marks the union of Mata Parvati and Lord Shiva. On this day, Lord Mahadev accepted Mata Parvati after her spending 107 births in penance as his consort. It was only in Devi Parvati’s 108th birth, he could finally win over Lord Shiva and come to be known as Teej Maata.
On this auspicious occasion, Hindu married women pray to Maa Parvati and Lord Shiva for the long, prosperous, and successful lives of their husbands. They color their hands with mehendi, wear ornaments and do shringar. They donned new clothes and observe a day-long fast even without water. Various gifts are exchanged on this day between parents and their daughters which includes bangles, henna, ghewar, and homemade sweets.
