November 9, 2023

Keeping a Mangalwar Ka Vrat is considered auspicious for happiness, wealth, fame, and having children. Complete this fast with full devotion by reciting the Tuesday fast story related to Hanuman Ji. Tuesday fast is observed to seek the blessings of Lord Hanuman. Rather, this fast is also beneficial for those people whose Mars is in a weak position in their horoscope. Any man or woman can observe this fast. It is said that the person who observes Tuesday fast with a true heart, has all his wishes fulfilled. Lord Bajrangbali always blesses such a person. If you are going to start the fast on Tuesday, then know the rules and benefits of this fast.

According to astrology, the lord of Aries and Scorpio is Mars and their lord is also Mars. Therefore, people with these zodiac signs should keep fast on Tuesday. There is a hindrance in the birth of a child, Mars is in the fifth house or the child is not getting any happiness. There are obstacles to having children. If the child dies as soon as he is born, then the fast should be observed along with the remedy for Mars. There is a belief regarding fasting on Tuesday that it is considered to increase strength, courage, respect, and effort. By observing this fast, Hanumanji gets pleased and removes all the troubles from our lives.

If Mars is very inauspicious then the possibility of not having an elder brother is considered strong. If there are brothers then there is enmity between them. Vision in one eye may be lost. The joints of the body do not work. There is a deficiency or impurity of blood. In such a situation, auspicious measures and fasting should be observed. Mars in the fourth and eighth houses is considered inauspicious. If Mars is alone in any house then it is like a lion in a cage. Sun and Saturn together become Mars. If Ketu is with Mars then it becomes inauspicious. The presence of Mercury along with Mars also does not give good results. Having Venus along with Mars also does not give auspicious results. In such a situation, keep the fast along with the remedies for Mars.

Tuesday Vrat Katha

Once upon a time, there was a Brahmin couple who lived a very simple life. Since she had no children, the woman observed a fast on Tuesday to please Lord Hanuman. One day, the husband went to a nearby village to perform some religious rituals and the woman remained at home and worshipped Lord Hanuman.

Impressed by his dedication, Lord Hanuman blessed him with a boy. After a few months, when the husband came home, he became suspicious of his wife’s character after seeing the son playing in her lap.

The husband suspected his wife of adultery and asked her about their son. Even when she said that the son was a blessing from Lord Hanuman, the husband did not believe her. That night Maruti came into his dream and told him the whole story.

Ultimately, the next morning, the Brahmin felt guilty for his doubts and accepted both his wife and son with love and respect. He named his son Mangal because this child was a blessing of Tuesday’s fast. Since then, Hanuman Vrat started being observed by the devotees to get the desired blessings.
