Monday Fast story-
  • There lived a moneylender in a town. He had no shortage of money but he had no children. He was  very sad. He used to observe fast every Monday and worshiped Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati.
  • Mother Parvati was pleased with his devotion. She urged Lord Shiva to fulfill the wish of that moneylender. Lord Shiva said that O Parvati, this is what is written in the destiny of the moneylender. But Parvati did not listen and started urging Lord Shankar to respect the devotion of the moneylender.
  • Lord Shiva gave the moneylender the boon of having a son. But his child was given only twelve years of life. The moneylender was neither happy nor sad on this matter. But he did not stop worshiping Lord Shankar. He continued to worship as before. Soon a son was born in the house of the moneylender.
  • When he turned 11 years old, the moneylender sent him to Kashi for education. His son was sent to Kashi along with his maternal uncle. The moneylender also gave money to his son and asked him to perform a yagya on the way and said that wherever Yajna is performed, give food and Dakshina to Brahmins.
  • Both uncle and nephew performed yajnas in the same way and went towards Kashi, giving food and dakshina to the brahmins. There was a city in the night where the daughter of the king of the city was going to be married. But the prince to whom she was to be married was blind from one eye. Father of the prince thought of a plan to hide the fact that his son did not have sight in one eye.
  • Looking at the son of the moneylender, a thought came to his mind of making this boy a bridegroom and get him married to the princess. After marriage, he will send him away with money and will take the princess to his city. The boy will be married to the princess wearing the groom's clothes. But the moneylender's son was honest. He did not find this to be fair.
  • He waited for the right time and wrote on the side of the princess's dupatta, 'You have been married with me, but the prince with whom you will be sent is blind from one eye. I am going Kashi to study.
  • When the princess read the things written on the sardine, she told this to her parents. The king did not send off his daughter, due to which the procession went back. On the other hand the moneylender's boy and his maternal uncle reached Kashi and after going there they performed a yagya. The yajna was held on the day the boy turned 12 years old. The boy told his uncle that my health is not well. His uncle said that you go inside and sleep.
  • According to the boon of Shiva, that child's life passed away in a short time. Seeing the dead nephew, his maternal uncle started moaning. Coincidentally, Shiva and Mother Parvati were going from there at the same time. Parvati said to God- Swami, I cannot bear the sound of its crying. You must remove the suffering of this person.
  • When Shiva went near the dead child, he said that this is the son of the same moneylender, to whom I gave a boon of 12 years of age. Now its age is over. But Mother Parvati said, O Mahadev, please give more age to this child, otherwise its parents will also die in agony due to its separation.
  • On the request of Mother Parvati, Lord Shiva gave the boy a boon to be alive. By the grace of Shiva, the boy became alive. After finishing his education, the boy went towards his city with his maternal uncle. Both of them reached the same city where they were married. In that city also he organized a yagya. The boy's father-in-law recognized him and took him to the palace and took care of him and sent off his daughter.
  • Here the moneylender and his wife were waiting for their son after being hungry and thirsty. He had vowed that if he got the news of his son's death, he would also give up his life, but he was very happy to hear the news of his son being alive. On the same night, Lord Shiva came in the merchant's dream and said - O Shresthi, I have given a long life to your son by being pleased by observing your fast on Monday and listening to the fast story.
  • Similarly, whoever observes a Monday fast or listens and reads the story, all his sorrows are removed and all his wishes are fulfilled.

Shravan is followed by two calendars, one that is followed by people in North India also known as Purnima calendar and people down South follow the Amavasyant calendar. The most important part about Shravan is fasting Mondays. Monday fasting is purely dedicated to Shiva.
