Legend


The fast has been named after Savitri. Once there was the King Aswapati of Madra. He was blessed with a beautiful daughter Savitri. She chose Satyawaan as her husband. Satyawaan was a prince in exile, and he was living in the forest with his blind father, Dyumatsen. Savitri left her palace and started living with her husband and the in-laws in the forest. She was a loyal daughter-in-law and wife. She was committed to a family.

One day while cutting a tree, Satyawaan fell down and his head hitted the ground . Savitri came there and kept his head on her lap but, unfortunately, he expired. At that time, Yamraj, the death God, appeared to take away the soul of Satyawaan from his body. Savitri was deeply hurt and pleaded to Yamraj that she did not want to be separated from her husband. If Yamraj would take away the soul of her husband she would also follow. Yamraj, moved by the devotion of Savitri returned the life of her husband. Satyawaan regained life, and there after both of them lived happily.
