vrat katha

jivitputrika-vrat ke sath jimootavahan ki katha judi hai. snkshep men vah is prakar hai-

gandharvon ke rajakumar ka nam jimootavahan tha. ve bade udar aur paropakari the. jimootavahan ke pita ne vriddhavastha men vanaprasth ashram men jate samay inako rajasinhasan par baithaya; kintu inaka man raj-pat men nahin lagata tha. ve rajy ka bhar apane bhaiyon par chhodakar svayn van men pita ki seva karane chale ge. vahin par unaka malayavati namak rajakanya se vivah ho gaya. ek din jab van men bhraman karate hue jimootavahan kafi age chale ge, tab unhen ek vriddha vilap karate hue dikhi. inake poochhane par vriddha ne rote hue bataya– "main nagavnshaki stri hoon aur mujhe ek hi putr hai. pakshiraj garud ke samaksh nagon ne unhen pratidin bhakshan hetu ek nag saunpane ki pratigya ki huee hai. aj mere putr shnkhachood ki bali ka din hai." jimootavahan ne vriddha ko ashvast karate hue kaha– "daro mat. main tumhare putr ke pranon ki raksha karoonga. aj usake bajay main svayn apane apako usake lal kapade men dhnkakar vadhy-shila par letoonga." itana kahakar jimootavahan ne shnkhachood ke hath se lal kapada le liya aur ve use lapetakar garud ko bali dene ke lie chuni gee vadhy-shila par let ge. niyat samay par garud bade veg se ae aur ve lal kapade men dhnke jimootavahan ko pnje men dabochakar pahad ke shikhar par jakar baith ge. apane chngul men giraphtar prani ki ankh men ansoo aur munh se ah nikalata n dekhakar garud bade ashchary men pad ge. unhonne jimootavahan se unaka parichay poochha. jimootavahan ne sara kissa kah sunaya. garud unaki bahaduri aur doosare ki pran-raksha karane men svayn ka balidan dene ki himmat se bahut prabhavit hue. prasann hokar garud ne unako jivan-dan de diya tatha nagon ki bali n lene ka varadan bhi de diya. is prakar jimootavahan ke adamy sahas se nag-jati ki raksha huee aur tab se putr ki suraksha hetu jimootavahan ki pooja ki pratha shuroo ho gee.

ashvin krishn ashtami ke pradoshakal men putravati mahilaen jimootavahan ki pooja karati hain. kailash parvat par bhagavan shnkar mata parvati ko katha sunate hue kahate hain ki "ashvin krishn ashtami ke din upavas rakhakar jo stri sayn pradoshakal men jimootavahan ki pooja karati hain tatha katha sunane ke bad achary ko dakshina deti hai, vah putr-pautron ka poorn sukh prapt karati hai." vrat ka paran doosare din ashtami tithi ki samapti ke pashchath kiya jata hai. yah vrat apane nam ke anuroop phal dene vala hai.
