Bahula Chaturthi 2021: When Shri Krishna took the form of a lion to test the Bahula cow, read the wonderful fast story here

The Chaturthi date of Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada is known as Bahula Chauth or Bahula Chaturthi. 
This time this very special day is falling on Wednesday i.e. this Shri Ganesh ji's favorite day. Therefore, this time the people who worship the fast will get special benefits from it. This year this fast is on Wednesday, August 25. According to the beliefs, the troubles faced by the children of women who observe the fast of Bahula Chaturthi are eradicated.

Lord Ganesha is said to be the lord of Chaturthi Tithi. On Bhadrapada Chaturthi Tithi, daughter-in-law women keep a fast for the protection of their children. On this day, fasting on Bahula Chaturthi till the moon rises is of great importance. In fact, the law of worshiping a cow and a lion by making clay idols is prevalent in this fast. This fast is also called Gau Puja Vrat.

Popular Story of Bahula Chaturthi Vrat

There is a very interesting story related to Bahula Chaturthi fasting. When Lord Vishnu was incarnated in the form of Krishna, then to participate in his leela, the gods and goddesses also took the form of gopas and gopis. The idea of ​​serving Krishna came in the mind of a cow named Kamdhenu and came to Nand Baba's cowshed by becoming a cow named Bahula from its share.

Lord Krishna's daughter-in-law had great affection for the cow. Once the idea of ​​taking the test of Bahula came in the mind of Shri Krishna. When Bahula was grazing in the forest, Lord Krishna appeared in the form of Singh. Seeing the lion standing in front of him as death, Bahula became frightened. But courageously said to Singh, 'O Vanraj, my calf is hungry. After giving milk to the calf, I will come back to be your food.'

Singh said that how should I let go of the food that came in front, if you do not come back, I will remain hungry. Bahula took oath of truth and religion and said that I will definitely come back. Influenced by Bahula's oath, Shri Krishna, who became a lion, let Bahula go. Bahula came back to the forest after feeding her calf.

Seeing Bahula's integrity, Shri Krishna was very pleased and came in his true form and said, 'O Bahula, you have succeeded in the examination. From now on you will be worshiped as a cow-mother on Bhadrapada Chaturthi. The one who worships you will get the happiness of wealth and children.

Incarnation story of Ganesha

According to Shiv Purana, the story of the birth of Lord Ganesha is described. According to which, when Goddess Parvati makes a child out of her filth before taking a bath and makes him her gatekeeper. She tells him, 'O son, you guard the door, I am going inside and taking a bath. Therefore, until I take a bath, you should not allow any man inside.

When Lord Shiva came, Ganesh ji stopped him at the door and did not allow him to enter. This made Shiva very angry and severed the head of the child Ganesha. Seeing her son's head separated from the body, Mother Parvati became sad and angry. Therefore, in order to remove their suffering, according to the instructions of Lord Shiva, their ganas bring the head of the first found creature (elephant) in the north direction and Lord Shiva revived him by placing that head of the yard on the torso of the child. Huh.

Parvati ji gets excited and embraces son Ganesha in her heart and blesses him to be the foremost among all the gods. Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh declared that child as Sarvadhyaksha and gave him the boon of being the foremost worshiper. All the obstacles of the one who fasts on Chaturthi are removed, Siddhis are attained.
