According to astrologers, the Shiva-Parvati statue made of clay is duly worshiped in the hartalika Teej fast. Along with this, the story of Haratalika Teej Vrat is heard. It is believed that virgin girls keep this fast for the bride they want. It is said that once this fast is observed, this fast is kept for a lifetime. If sick, another woman or husband can keep this fast. According to the scriptures, Katha has special significance in the Hartalika Teej fast. It is believed that this fast is considered incomplete without narrative. Therefore, the person keeping fast on the occasion of Teeja must listen or read the story.
