Meaning and History of Vat Savitri Vrat

According to folklore, King Ashwapati of the country of Madra was blessed with a daughter after worshiping Savitri with his wife. When Savitri was young, Ashwapati sent her with a minister to choose a groom. When she came after choosing Satyavan as her husband, Devrishi Narada told everyone that Satyavan son of Maharaja Dyumatsen would die after 12 years of marriage. Hearing this, the king asked the daughter Savitri to choose another groom. But Savitri disagreed. After learning from Naradji the time of Satyavan’s death, she started living in the forest with her husband and mother-in-law.

Savitri began fasting before her husband’s date of death, as stated by Naradji. When Yamraj came for her husband Satyavan, Savitri also followed him. With that, Yamraj, pleased with her devotion, granted her a boon. In her first wish, she asked for her blind stepfather’s sight and longevity. after it was granted, she continued to follow them. When Yamraj offered her a second boon, she reclaimed her father-in-law’s lost kingdom. In the end, as the third boon, Savitri asked for the boon of a hundred sons guaranteeing that her husband will live long. With her wisdom, Savitri not only saved Satyavan’s life, but also ensured the well-being of his family.
