On the new moon of the Jyeshtha month, the Vat Savitri fast is practiced by married women. In the temples of Braj, women worshiped the banyan tree and prayed for the man’s long life. Jyotisacharya Poonam Varshney said that this fast is kept with the desire for unbroken happiness and child. On Amavasya Tithi, Rohini Nakshatra, Gajakesari Yoga, Budhaditya Yoga, Sun and Moon in Taurus will pass. So this fast will be fruitful. It is believed that the goddess Savitri resuscitated her husband under this tree. Since then, Vat Savitri has been fasting on this day.
