According to religious belief, the trinity of Gods i.e. Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh reside in the banyan tree. In such a situation, worshiping this tree brings happiness and prosperity in life. Because the lifespan of the banyan tree is very long. Therefore, it is also called Akshay Vriksha. In such a situation, married women worship this tree and pray for the long life of their husbands.

Apart from this, the problems going on in married life also get resolved. There is a tradition of keeping a fast on this day. During the puja, women take a protective thread in their hands and circumambulate the banyan tree and perform the puja as per the rituals. It is believed that this puja also removes financial problems and provides relief from the troubles in life.

Along with this, offer mustard oil while worshiping Shanidev. Apart from this, donate shadow.
