Rishi Panchami Vrat Katha
According to the legend, once upon a time Brahmin’s husband and wife lived in a kingdom. He had two children, a son, and a daughter. He married his daughter in a good family but after some time the son-in-law died.
Bedi started living in a hut on the banks of the river while observing Vaidivya fast. After some time, worms started falling into the body of the daughter. Seeing his condition like this, the Brahmin asked the Brahmin the reason for this.
The Brahmin carefully observed the deeds of his daughter in her previous birth, in which her daughter touched the utensils during menstruation and did not observe the fast of Rishi Panchami in her present birth, so there is no luck in her life.
After knowing the reason, the Brahmin’s daughter fasted with law and order. Due to the majesty of this fast, he got a full fortune in the next birth.
