Why we Celebrate Hariyali Teej?

Hariyali Teej, a monsoon celebration, commemorates Lord Shiva’s marriage to Deity. It celebrates Lord Shiva’s acceptance of Deity Parvati’s affection for him.

Goddess Parvati had 108 Reincarnations in Hindu mythology before Lord Shiva ultimately acknowledged her devotion and wedded her. It is a fan of the Deity’s devotion.

Teej is particularly significant because many think that Goddess announced on this day that fasting and doing specific customs will grant women a blissful married life.

Teej is primarily a festival in which Hindu women in Northern and Western India wishes for their husbands’ good life. Women dress dressed in full garb, with green as the predominant color – as the term Hariyali Teej suggests. Monsoon festival provides plenty of Vegetation to the area, also green color denotes Monsoon.
