Celebrated on Shukla Paksha Tritiya of the Hindu month of Bhadrapud, that is the third day of the bright half of the North Indian Lunar month, the festival of Hartalika Teej is celebrated to mark Parvati’s reunion with Shiva as per Hindu mythology. It comes a month after the celebration of Haryali Teej and is mostly a day before Ganesh Chaturthi. The devotees believe that it was on this day that Shiva accepted Parvati as his wife after her 108 re-births.

To mark the festivities, married women observe Nirjala Vrat in which they can neither eat nor drink throughout the day and pray to makeshift statues of Parvati and Shiva on this day for marital bliss and progeny. It is also said that women observing fast on this day can make their married life blissful hence they worship and seek the wellness of their husband, children and their own self.

The word Hartalika is a combination of ‘harit’ which means ‘abduction’ and ‘aalika’ which is ‘female friend’. The festival’s celebrations began after Parvati requested her friend to kidnap her so that her father could not marry her to Vishnu. This abduction played a key role in the reunion of Shiva and Parvati.
