Story Of Gauri Tritiya Vrat

Once Lord Shiva, along with his wife, Mata Parvati, set out for a walk. On their way, they came across Narada. They saw some women were observing Gauri Tritiya vrat, with great devotions. They were also offering the blessings of prosperity and good luck. Pleased with their worships, Mata Gauri blessed them good luck. This delayed Mata Gauri somehow, something that the observant Lord Shiva understood, that the vrat was highly secret. Therefore, any woman, who observes this vrat secretly, can attain a husband full of longevity and prosperity. This vrat, since eons, has been treated as the protector of longevity of the husbands of the married women worshiping Mata Gauri. Even today, the popularity of Gauri Tritiya vrat continues unblemished.
