Story of Sawan Somvar

There lived a moneylender in a city. There was no shortage of money in his house but he did not have any children, due to which he was very unhappy.

Wishing for a son, he used to fast on Lord Shiva every Monday and worshiped Shiva and Parvati in the pagoda with full devotion.

Mother Parvati was pleased to see his devotion and requested Lord Shiva to fulfill the wish of the moneylender.

Hearing Parvati's wish, Lord Shiva said, "O Parvati. Every living being in this world gets fruit according to his deeds and has to suffer whatever happens in his fate."

But Parvati expressed her desire to fulfill the moneylender's desire to keep the faith.

On the request of Mother Parvati, Shiva granted a boon to the moneylender but he also said that his child would be short lived and would live only for sixteen years.

The moneylender was listening to this conversation between Mata Parvati and Lord Shiva. He continued to worship Shiva as before. After some time a son of a moneylender was born.

When the boy was eleven years old, he was sent to Kashi to study. The moneylender called the son's maternal uncle and gave a lot of money and said that he would take this child to get Kashi Vidya and perform a yagna on the way.

Wherever you perform a yajna, go there after feeding Brahmins and giving them Dakshina

Both maternal uncle and nephew used to perform Yagya in the same way and used to donate dakshina to Brahmins and went towards Kashi.

There was a town in Rathe where the daughter of the king of the city was going to be married, but the prince to whom her marriage was fixed was Kana and the king was not aware of this. Taking advantage of this, the prince made the moneylender's son a bridegroom in his place. But the moneylender's son was honest. He took advantage of the opportunity and wrote on the princess's dupatta that "You are married to me but the prince with whom you will be sent is a one-eyed Kana. I am going to study Kashi."

When the princess read the words written on the sardine, she told this to her parents. The king did not leave his daughter except in the procession. 

On the other hand, the moneylender's son and his maternal uncle reached Kashi and went there and performed a yagya. On the day of the boy's age when he was 16 years old, a yajna was performed. The boy told his uncle that I was not feeling well. Mama said you go inside and sleep. According to the boon of Shiva, the child lost his life in a few moments. 

dead Seeing the nephew, his maternal uncle started moaning. Coincidentally, Shiva and Mother Parvati were going from there at the same time. Parvati said to God- Prannath, I cannot bear its call. You have to take away this person's suffering. When Shiva reached the dead boy, he said that this is the son of the same moneylender, whom I had given a boon at the age of 12. Now its age is over. but mother Parvati said to O Mahadev, please give more age to this child, otherwise its parents will also die. On Shiva's request, Lord Shiva granted the boy a boon to survive. By the grace of Shiva, the child became alive. 

After finishing his education, when the boy was returning to his city with his maternal uncle, both of them walked and reached the same city where he was married to the princess. In that city also he organized a yagya. The king of that city immediately recognized him. At the end of the yajna, the king brought the merchant's son and his maternal uncle to the palace and sent them away with the princess by giving them a lot of money and clothes.

As soon as the boy's maternal uncle reached the city, he sent a messenger home and informed about his arrival. The merchant was very pleased with the news of his son's return alive. The merchant and his wife had locked themselves in a room. Staying hungry and thirsty, both of them were waiting for their son. They had taken a vow that if they got the news of their son's death, they would give up their lives. The merchant reached the gate of the city with his wife. His happiness knew no bounds on hearing the news of his son's survival and his marriage. 

That very night Lord Shiva came in the merchant's dream and said- 'O Shrestha! I have granted a long life to your son by being pleased by observing your Monday fast and listening to the fast story. The merchant was very pleased to hear this.

Keeping all these things in mind, if you worship, then no matter how many wishes you have, they will definitely be fulfilled.
