The story of Sawan Somvar

There lived a money lender in a town. There was no shortage of money in his house, but he had no children and was therefore very unhappy.

Desiring a son, he fasted to Lord Shiva every Monday and worshipped Shiva and Parvati in the pagoda with full devotion.

Mother Parvati was pleased to see his devotion and asked Lord Shiva to fulfill the moneylender's wish.

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

But Parvati expressed her desire to fulfill the wish of the moneylender and to preserve faith.

At 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 sixteen years.

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

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

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

Both the maternal uncle and the nephew used to perform yagna in the same way, giving dakshina to the Brahmins and going to Kashi.

There was a town in Rathe where the daughter of the king of the town was to be married, but the prince to whom she was to be married was Kana and the king knew nothing about it. The prince took advantage of this and made the moneylender's son the bridegroom in his place. But the moneylender's son was honest. He took the opportunity and wrote on the princess's dupatta, "You are married to me, but the prince you are sent with is a one-eyed kana. I will study in Kashi."

When the princess read the words on the sardine, she told her parents. The king left his daughter only in the procession.

The money lender's son and his maternal uncle reached Kashi, went there and performed a yagya. On the day when the boy was 16 years old, a yajna was performed. The boy said to his uncle, "I am not well. Mom said you should go into the house and sleep. After Shiva's blessing, the child lost his life in a few moments.

when the nephew was dead, his maternal uncle began to groan. As luck would have it, Shiva and mother Parvati went at the same time. Parvati said to God, "Prannath, I cannot bear his cry. You must remove this person's suffering. When Shiva reached the dead boy, he said this is the son of the same moneylender to whom I had given a boon at the age of 12. But Mother Parvati said to O Mahadev, please give more lifetime to this child, otherwise his parents will also die. On Shiva's request, Lord Shiva granted the boy a boon to survive. By the grace of Shiva, the child came alive.

When the boy returned to his town with his maternal uncle after completing his education, both of them walked and reached the same town where he was married to the princess. He organized a yagya in that city as well. The king of that city recognized him immediately. At the end of the yagya, the king brought the merchant's son and his maternal uncle to the palace and sent them away with the princess, giving them plenty of money and clothes.

As soon as the maternal uncle reached the city, he sent a messenger home to inform him of his arrival. The merchant was delighted with the news of his son's return alive. The merchant and his wife had locked themselves in a room. Hungry and thirsty, the two waited for their son. They had made a vow that they would give up their lives when they received the news of their son's death. The merchant reached the gate of the city with his wife. His joy knew no bounds when he heard the news of his son's survival and his marriage.

That very night, Lord Shiva appeared in the merchant's dream and said, 'Oh Shrestha! I have given your son a long life because he was pleased with your Monday fast and listened to the fast story. The merchant was very pleased to hear this.

If you keep all these things in mind and worship, all your wishes will come true, no matter how many you have.
