The Shravan Fasting Story | Sawan Somvar Vrat Katha:

The Shravan Somvar Katha is the story of a rich merchant who had everything except a son. He was a dedicated devotee of Lord Shiva and used to sincerely worship the Shivling and Goddess Parvati on every Monday, fervently praying for a son. Seeing his dedication Maa Parvati, Lord Shiva's consort, requested Lord Shiva to grant the merchant his wish. Lord Shiva agreed and blessed the merchant, however the Lord told Goddess Parvati that the merchant will have a son but the child will live for only 12 years. The merchant overheard this conversation between Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati, but he did not reveal this fact to his wife or anyone else. In due course of time a son was born to him and he and his wife were overjoyed. Though the merchant celebrated his son’s birth lavishly and donated amply, he was still sad, as he knew that his son would not live beyond 12 years. He started worshipping Lord Shiva and Parvatijee more intently and never missed observing fast on Mondays, praying that his son be granted longevity, beyond 12 years.

Years passed by and the merchant’s son grew up to be a handsome young boy and when he turned 11, the merchant’s wife wanted her son to get married. But the merchant knew about his son’s life span and refused to agree to his wife’s wish. He decided to send his beloved son to the holy city of Kashi for education in spiritual knowledge. He requested his wife’s brother,i.e., his brother-in-law, to accompany his son to Kashi and arrange for the best spiritual education. The merchant instructed his brother-in-law to organize spiritual discourse gatherings at every place they passed through and offer enough donations to the needy.

The merchant’s son, left for Kashi with his maternal uncle. On the way they followed the instructions of the merchant, in every place they halted, by arranging spiritual gatherings, donating to the needy and satisfying Brahmins by feeding them and offering daan dakshina. During their journey, they once reached the capital city of a King whose daughter was to get married that day. Though there was festivity all around, the bridegroom’s father was worried and anxious as his son was blind in one eye, and he knew that his son would not be accepted by the King. The bridegroom’s father sent his men to find out a handsome boy to be the proxy bridegroom for the wedding. When the men came across the merchant’s son, they found him perfect for the requirement. They convinced the maternal uncle of the boy, and told him that the boy would be released once the wedding ceremony is finished. Understanding the situation, the maternal uncle convinced the merchant’s boy to stand in as a proxy bridegroom and the boy agreed.

The people of the kingdom were happy, praised the handsome young bridegroom and thanked their luck for getting such a suitable match for their Princess. The wedding rituals were performed and the merchant’s son and Princess were married. However, before leaving, the merchant’s son wrote on the chunri(long scarf) of the bride, that he was not her actual bridegroom, though they were now married. He disclosed that the actual bridegroom was blind in one eye and a Prince, while he was a rich merchant’s son. The Princess had noticed the merchant’s boy writing something on her chunri and when she read it, just before leaving for her in-law’s place, she was shocked and upset and refused to accept the one eyed boy as her husband. The Princess stayed back in her father’s palace and the bridegroom and party returned back to their kingdom without the bride.

The merchant’s son and his maternal uncle reached Kashi and started his spiritual education at the best place. He was focused and dedicated to learning and his maternal uncle diligently organized spiritual gatherings and continued donating, regularly, praying for the good health and well being of his sister’s son.

Time passed and on the last day of the 12th year of the merchant’s son, Lord Shiva’s words manifested. The young boy experienced a pain in his chest and succumbed to death. The maternal uncle of the boy was conducting his daily rituals and found the boy dead in the room. However, the grieved maternal uncle kept his composure, did not reveal anything and carried on with the daily ritual of feeding the Brahmins etc. Once the rituals were over he broke down, howled and cried by beating his chest. Coincidently, Lord Shiva and Parvatijee were passing by that place and heard the wail and mourn and noticed the dead body of the merchant’s son. Understanding what had happened, the compassionate Divine Mother Parvati was moved and requested Lord Shiva to resurrect the life of the merchant’s son as the Lord looked after all beings and the merchant was His sincere devotee who worshiiped Him and never missed a Monday fast. On Her behest, Mahadev breathed life back in the merchant’s son by sprinkling Gangajal. The boy woke up, back to life. His maternal uncle was overwhelmed with joy.

When the merchant’s son finished his education, he and his maternal uncle started their journey back home and continued making donations and holding spiritual discourse gatherings. They reached the kingdom where the merchant’s boy had got married to the Princess of that kingdom. The King recognized the merchant’s boy and respectfully brought him to the palace, honouring him as his son-in-law. Later, the King organised his daughter to leave for her in-laws’ place on an auspicious day and gifted the merchant’s son with rich dowry.

The merchant’s son, along with his wife and maternal uncle reached back to his hometown. The merchant could not believe what he saw and knew it was a miracle and grace of Lord Shiva. The boy and his wife touched the feet of the parents and were lovingly welcomed back. This vrat katha(Shravan fasting story) clearly shows how meritorious it is to observe the Sawan Somvar Vrat.

As per tradition, in Shiva temples the Dharanatra hangs over the Shivalinga to bathe it with water all through Sawan maas. Devotees perform Abhishekham and pile the Shivling with Bel/Bilwa patra(leaves) and Lord Shiva’s flowers. No other Mondays of other months are so greatly honoured. It is believed that in the Shravan month, offering milk to Lord Shiva earns a lot of 'punya' or merits.
