Anant Chaturdashi fasting story
The fast story of Anant Chaturdashi is as follows. In olden times there used to be a sage named Sumant, his wife’s name was Diksha. Both had a daughter Sushila. When Sushila grew up a little, Mother Diksha passed away. Now the sage started worrying about the upbringing of the child, so he decided to get married again. His second wife and Sushila’s stepmother’s name was Karkasha. Like her name, she was also hoarse in nature. Karkasha gave great trouble to Sushila. That’s how Sushila grew up. Then sage Sumant started worrying about her marriage. After many efforts, Sushila’s marriage with Kaundinya Rishi was completed. But here also Sushila had to face poverty. He had to wander in the forests. One day he saw that some people are worshiping Anant God and are also tying Anant Rakshasutra in their hands. Sushila, knowing the importance of the fast of worshiping the infinite God, asked him the method of worship and following it, he also tied the infinite Rakshasutra on his wrist. Soon his days began to turn. Kaundinya sage became arrogant that he had created all this by his own hard work. After a year, Anant Chaturdashi again came, after thanking Anant God and worshiping him, after tying Anant Rakshasutra and returning home, Kaundinya saw that infinite thread tied in his hand and asked about him. Sushila happily told that by worshiping the infinite God, this rakshasutra has been tied, only after that our days have come good. On this Kaundinya felt himself humiliated and started thinking that Sushila is giving the credit of his hard work to his worship. He got that thread untied. Due to this, the infinite God became angry and on seeing Kaundinya, poverty again came. Then a learned sage made him realize what he had done and asked Kaundinya to repent of his act. For fourteen consecutive years, he kept fast on Anant Chaturdashi, after that Lord Shri Hari was pleased and Kaundinya and Sushila started living happily again. It is believed that the Pandavas also observed the fast of Anant Chaturdashi during their days of suffering (exile), after which they won victory over the Kauravas. Not only this, the day of Satyawadi King Harishchandra also went back after this fast.
