story of fasting

It is a matter of ancient times. There was an old lady who used to get up before sunrise regularly on Sundays and after retiring from her routine, used to smear her courtyard with cow dung so that it could be clean. After this she used to worship the Sun God. Along with this, she also used to listen to the fasting story of Sunday. On this day, she used to have food once and before that she used to offer bhog to the Sun God. Surya Dev was very pleased with that old lady. This was the reason that she did not have any kind of pain and she was full of wealth.

When her neighbor saw that she was very happy, she became jealous of him. There was no cow in Badiya’s house, so she used to bring cow dung to her neighbor’s courtyard. Because the cow used to be tied at his place. The neighbor tied the cow inside the house thinking something to disturb the old lady. Next Sunday, the old lady did not get cow dung to cover the courtyard. Because of this, he did not even offer bhog to the Sun God. At the same time, she herself did not eat and remained hungry and thirsty for the whole day and then fell asleep.

The next day when she woke up, she saw that a beautiful cow and a calf were tied in her courtyard. The old woman was surprised to see the cow. He fed fodder to the cow. At the same time, seeing the beautiful cow and calf tied in the courtyard of his neighbor old woman, he was more jealous. So she became more envious of him. When the neighbor saw gold dung lying near his cow, he picked it up from there and kept it near his cow’s dung.

The neighbor became rich in a few days from the gold dung. This went on for several days. For many days the old lady did not know anything about the gold dung. In such a situation, the old woman kept fasting for the Sun God as before. At the same time, she kept listening to the story. After this, the day Suryadev came to know about the cleverness of the neighbor. Then he started a strong storm. Seeing the strong storm, the old woman tied her cow inside. The next day when the old woman woke up, she saw gold dung. Then he was very surprised.

From then onwards, he tied the cow inside the house. Within a few days the old woman became very rich. Seeing the happy and wealthy condition of the old lady, the neighbor became more envious. The neighbor persuaded her husband and sent him to the king of the city. When the king saw that beautiful cow, he was very happy. Seeing the gold dung, his happiness was no more, he was sent to the king of the city. The king was very happy to see the beautiful cow. When the king saw the dung of gold in the morning, there was no room for his surprise.

There, the old woman was praying to the Sun God being hungry and thirsty. Suryadev felt pity on him. The same night Suryadev appeared in the king’s dream and told him to return the old woman’s cow and calf immediately. If you don’t do this, then a mountain of troubles will fall on you. The dream of Suryadev scared the king badly. After this the king returned the cow and the calf to the old woman. The king gave a lot of money to the old lady and apologized. At the same time, the king also punished the neighbor and her husband. After this, the king made an announcement in the entire state that everyone should fast on Sunday. By fasting for the Sun God, a person becomes full of wealth and grains. Along with this, happiness also comes in the house.
