Hartalika Teej 2023: When will the fast of Hartalika Teej be observed, know the auspicious time, worship method and rules

Married women observe Hartalika Teej fast for the long life of their husbands and happiness and prosperity in the house. This fast is dedicated to Lord Shankar and Mother Parvati. Know when this fast will be observed this year and what are its rules.

Teej has special significance in Hindu religion. Although the festival of Teej is celebrated thrice in a year, but all the three Teejs are very different from each other. The Teej celebrated on the third day of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month is called Hartalika Teej. Apart from this, two other Teej are Hariyali Teej and Kajri Teej. Hartalita Teej is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Parvati. It is believed that by observing the fast of Hartalika Teej one gets the blessings of unbroken good fortune.

The fast of Hartalika Teej is observed every year on the third day of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month. This Teej is also called Teeja in North India as well as Central India. Married women observe this fast for unbroken good fortune. Unmarried girls also observe this fast to wish for a good groom. The importance of this fast is more than other Teej because Mother Parvati had observed this fast to get Lord Shiva as her husband. There is a tradition of observing Nirjala fast on Hartalika Teej.

Importance of Hartalika Teej

The main difference between Hartalika Teej and Hariyali Teej is that Hartalika Teej falls in the Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month and Hariyali Teej falls in the Shukla Paksha of Sawan month. Worshiping and fasting during this Teej is more difficult than other Teejs. There are strict rules for observing the fast of Haritalika Teej. If these are not followed, the fast is not considered complete.

By observing this fast, Mother Parvati blesses all women with the long life of their husband, prosperity of the family and progress of their children. If a virgin girl observes this fast and worships Lord Shiva, then she gets the desired groom. Also, those girls who are facing any obstacle in their marriage, then by observing this fast, all those obstacles will be removed.
