On this day i.e. Hartalika Teej, married women keep fast for the long life of their husbands. This is an anhydrous fast. Some things should be kept in mind while worshiping Lord Shiva and Parvati. Unmarried girls can also keep fast to get a good husband. It is mandatory to follow the law and strict rules of Hartalika fast.
Don’t do these things
Before starting the Hartalika fast, keep in mind that it is mandatory to keep this fast for life. If the fasting person falls seriously ill, then this fast can be abandoned. When the fasting person becomes seriously ill, then the husband of the fasting woman or any other woman will have to observe this fast. Women observing fast on this day should not get angry. Because by getting angry, the purity of the mind is diminished. On the day of the fast, do worship by doing Jagran throughout the night.
