Why Is Hariyali Teej Celebrated?

According to the Hindu mythology, it was the day of Shravani Teej (Teej falling in the month of Sawan), when Lord Shiva had finally accepted Goddess Parvati as his wife. It wasn't easy for Parvati Devi to impress Lord Shiva; hence, we should know the story behind this divine union.

Goddess Parvati admired Shiva and longed to marry him. But Lord Shiva wasn't easily touched by everyone. Hence, Goddess Parvati underwent a penance by observing a fast for many years to impress her ideal man. Finally, Parvati Devi was accepted by Lord Shiva as his wife. It is said that the union took place on the third day of Shukla Paksha in Sawan month. Since then, this day came into being and gradually, became the day when women observe Hariyali Teej Vrat for the longevity of their husbands.

Let's now take a look at the rituals and traditions that will be followed on the day of Shingara Teej in 2016.
