Kajari Teej fasting story
According to the legend, a poor Brahmin couple lived in a village. Kajali Teej came in the month of Bhadrapada. The brahmin observed the fast of Mother Teej. Told the brahmin that today is my Teej Mata’s fast. Bring satu of gram from somewhere. The brahmin said, from where should I get the satu. So the Brahmin said that whether you steal or rob. But bring me Satu. It was night time. The Brahmin entered a moneylender’s shop. He made satu by weighing a quarter kilogram of gram dal, ghee, sugar and started leaving, but only then the servants of the shop woke up after hearing the sound and the thieves started shouting. The moneylender came and caught the Brahmin.
On this the Brahmin said that I am not a thief. I am a poor brahmin. My wife is fasting on Teej Mata today, so I was taking only this one and a quarter kilogram sattu. The moneylender searched him. Nothing was found with him except Satu. The moneylender said that from today onwards I will consider your wife as my religious sister. He sent off the brahmin in a splendid manner by giving Satu, jewellery, rupees, Mehndi, Lachha and a lot of money. Together they worshiped Kajali Mata. Just as the days of Brahmins return, in the same way, the days of Kajali Mata be on everyone.
