Gauri Vrata | Hamro Patro

Gauri Vrata

Gauri is worshiped on the day of Chaitra Shukla Tritiya. Both married women and unmarried or even single women observe this fast with the desire to have a long conjugal life and marital happiness. This fast is also called Gangaur fast and it is also called Gauri Tritiya, Saubhagya Gauri fast, and Gauri Puja.

The stalks in the field are almost cut, the stalks of wheat have been cut and the stalks have been brought in. The early days of the New Year, the open sky, and the long evenings are giving a glimpse of a long day.

Generally, this fast starts from the day of Sakranti in the month of Chaitra and ends on this day. From the point of Pakshya, this fast is considered as a vow of 18 days from the beginning of Chaitra Krishna Paksha to the Tritiya of Shukla Paksha.

In the Shiva Purana, it is mentioned that Mother Parvati succeeded in getting Lord Shiva because she fasted for 5 days. However, this fast is equally important for both Parvati and Shiva. I wish all of you the best of luck in this vow that both husband and wife will support each other for years to come.

In other words, this fast can also be taken as a welcome to the coming monsoon. The clouds that went to fetch water shall bring enough water and moisture for this year. May everyone's wishes be fulfilled, best wishes.

Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
