Karwa Chauth Legend Or Katha 

sargi vrat katha

According to the legend of Karwa Chauth, a money lender had 7 sons and 1 daughter. One day, she kept a fast for her husband. At night, when everyone in her family sat for dinner, she said she won't eat anything as the moon had not risen. She told her brothers that she will eat only after seeing and offering water to the moon. Her brothers couldn't see her in pain so they tricked her by showing her a lamp which was set behind a tree and gave an illusion of the moon. 

The woman then had water and food. As soon as she had the first bite of her food, the news of her husband's demise came. She kept crying and decided to keep the body of her husband with her for 1 year. She kept collecting grass on the head of her husband. Next year on the same day, she fasted all day long, following all the rituals, and then her husband came to life.

Karwa Chauth Puja Vidhi

After the sargi, women fast all day long till the moon arises. During the fast, one isn't allowed to have even a drop of water. In the evening, prepare a plate with incense, lamp, sandalwood paste, sindoor, roli, dry fruits and cover it with a cloth. This thali is used for vartana which usually happens at the temple or anyone's home. This is performed by all the women fasting on the day of Karwa chauth. Before the thali vartana (plate rotation), women read the katha and worship Gauri Mata. This is usually done 3-4 hours before the moon arises.
