According to the mythology, goddess Parvati’s father wanted her to marry lord Vishnu, oblivious to her devotion to lord Shiva. To avoid the marriage, Parvati asked her friends abduct her and stop the union. Hence, the origin of Teej. Difficult to please and woo, it took Parvati 108 births before Shiva acknowledged her love for him. Hence, it is believed that on this very day Parvati, after being accepted by Shiva, dedicated the auspicious day to women and proclaimed that whoever performed the desired rituals on this day would be blessed with a devoted partner and a happy married life
