Hartalika Teej is a festival of womanhood which is celebrated mostly in Northern part of India. Women around the states of Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, and Madhya Pradesh celebrate this festival with much zeal and euphoria. On this day, married and unmarried women observe fast in order to charm Goddess Parvati. Married women keep fast for the entire day for longevity of their husband and unmarried women observe fast to get blessed with a suitable match for them.

According to Hindu calendar, Hartalika Teej falls on the Shukla Paksha Tritiya of Bhadrapada month. In 2015, Hartalika Teej will be celebrated on September 16. Puja for Hartalika Teej can be done two times in a day i.e. in the morning (Pratahkal Hartalika Puja) and the evening (Pradosh Kaal Hartalika Puja). If due to some reasons morning Puja is not possible, one can opt for an evening Puja.

How Hartalika Teej Strengthens Conjugal Bond?

Fast observed on Hartalika Teej is a little similar to that done on Karva Chauth. Many women keep Nirjala (abstaining from drinking water) fast for the longevity of their husbands. Seeing absolute love of their wives, husbands too share the same feeling by offering adornments or various other gifts. Many husbands too observe fast in order to reciprocate their devotion and commitment towards the love of their life. This way Hartalika Teej showers blessing of a happy married life for couples.
