Story of the Brahmin

According to mythological beliefs, in ancient times, a brahmin, well versed in the Vedas, used to live in a kingdom in the city of Magadha. His wife had a hoarse tone, but the brahmin was kind, selfless, and very polite. The brahmin’s financial condition was unfavorable, and his wife blamed him. She always encouraged him to engage in unethical activities to earn money. One day, the brahmin, fed up with his married life and the bitter words of his wife, leaves his house and heads to the forest. As the sad brahmin walked far from his house and entered the forest, he met serpent girls in that desolate area. Seeing his sorrow, the serpent girls ask him why he visited the deserted forest. The brahmin told his troubles to the serpent. And listening to his troubles, the serpent girls advise him to worship Goddess Laxmi on the full moon day (Purnima) of the Ashwin month. Then she explains how to perform the kojagar fast, and they leave.

Listening to this, the brahmin returns back to his house and worships goddess Laxmi on the coming full moon day of Ashwin month. He performs Devi Stotra and worships all night. Impressed by the dedication and devotion of the brahmin, the Goddess Laxmi blesses him with wealth, and their life becomes prosperous and happy due to the fast. His wife also gets involved in doing auspicious work. Thus, by performing the Kojagari vrat, the brahmin can live a happy life with wealth and prosperity.

The Story of Two Sisters

According to legend, a moneylender had two daughters. The elder daughter used to fast completely for the full moon, while the younger daughter tended to observe an incomplete fast. Due to incomplete fasting, the younger daughter’s child used to die as soon as they were born. She expressed her grief to the Pandit, who said she had not completed the fast of Purnima properly. But if she had completed Purnima’s fast properly, her child would survive.

She had fasted on the full moon, but the child would die again after birth, so she covered her dead child with a cloth while lying on her back and called her elder sister. The sister immediately comes on her call. The younger one asks the elder sister to sit on the pedestal.

While sitting, the corner of her chunri touches the child, and the child begins to cry. Following the revival of her child, the younger sister thanked the elder for her good fortune and said that she revived her child through her auspiciousness. She tells her elder sister that I have also reaped the benefits of your full moon fasts. Since then, both the younger and older sisters have been fasting on Purnima with complete devotion, and their lives have been filled with happiness due to the fast. Anyone who observes this fast with devotion also experiences a happy life.
