Saraswati Vrat Katha
Once upon a time, there lived a king named Suketa. He was a good person and a follower of religion. He ruled the kingdom according to the rules of religion. The king used to take very good care of the citizens of his kingdom. He had a very beautiful wife named Suvedi.
Once the kingdom of Suketa was attacked and Suketa was forced to fight with her enemies. The enemies were strong and Suketa was not able to defend himself and ran away from the battlefield to save his life. His wife also ran away with him. Both of them fled after saving their lives and reached a forest in time. When they reached the forest, they were tired and hungry. They were eating whatever they got but still their hunger was not getting satiated because whatever they got to eat was very less.
Hunger had started showing its effect and the king could not even walk for a time. The king fell down and the queen was trying to pacify him by making her thigh as a pillow for the king. She was very worried and prayed to God for some help so that she could get rid of her worries and pain.
Incidentally, sage Angiras was on his way and saw the king and queen. He asked the queen who she was and how they had come to the forest. The queen narrated her story to the sage. The sage came to know that they are the king and queen.
Then he told the queen that there is a place called “Durga Kshetra” near Panchavati pond nearby. He advised the queen to worship the goddess with full devotion. The sage asked the queen and the king to go together.
They both went to that place with the sage. The sage asked the king and queen to take a bath in the holy pond. The king and queen returned after taking a bath. The sage made him worship Goddess Durga and Saraswati. He made her the Shodashopachara puja, which pleases the goddess by performing 16 different types of worship or service. This worship lasted for 9 days.
On the tenth day, a yajna was performed and 10 kinds of donations were made by the king and queen as directed by sage Angiras. Thus ended his fast. The couple lived happily in the ashram of sage Angiras. By the grace of the Goddess, he got a son. The boy was named Surya Pratap. The child grew up in the ashram and received all kinds of education including war. He grew up to be a great swordsman. He had no fear.
The boy became a young warrior and with the blessings of sage Angiras attacked the enemies who were now ruling his father’s kingdom. He defeated all the enemies on the battlefield and took control of his father’s lost kingdom. He returned to the ashram and with the blessings of the sage took his parents back to his kingdom. From that day onwards Suvedi used to observe this fast every year and her family lived happily ever after.
