The celebration honours Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati’s heavenly nuptials. Legend has it that on this day, after Maa Parvati’s 107 incarnations of penance, Lord Shiva accepted her as his spouse. Devi Parvati, also known as Teej Maata, was able to win his heart at her 108th birth.
Married Hindu women mark Hariyali Teej by participating in a day-long nirjala vrat (fasting without water) and making prayers for the health and prosperity of their husbands in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and Jharkhand. Due to their scheduling in the Sawan and Bhadrapada months, the three major Teej festivals celebrated by Hindus in India—Hariyali Teej, Hartalika Teej, and Kajri Teej—each has special importance. In the month of Sawan, Hariyali Teej particularly falls on the third day of Shukla Paksha.
Hindu ladies pray to Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati for their husbands’ welfare on the festival of Hariyali Teej. They observe a day-long fast, decorate their hands with elaborate Mehendi patterns, dress in brand-new outfits in vivid colours of green or red, practise shringar (decorative beauty), wear elaborate jewellery, and more. Women dress in brilliant green traditional costume for Hariyali Teej. Along with building brand-new swings, devotees also chant old-fashioned folk songs that laud the love of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Married, recentlywed, and single women can all observe this fast. As part of the traditions, parents give homemade sweets, ghewar (a specialty sweet from the region), henna and bangles to their daughters’ houses.
