Glory of Chaturmas Vrat
Beyond the date……..
There is a special purification of water in Chaturmas. At that time there is a special importance of bathing in pilgrimage and river etc. After bathing in the confluence of rivers, by offering obeisances to ancestors and deities, chanting, homa, etc., one attains infinite results. Do not take bath at night and in the evening except during eclipse. One should not take bath even with hot water. By giving up hot water, one gets the fruit of taking a bath in Pushkar Tirtha.

The person who bathes in water by adding a mixture of til and amla or bilva leaves and chanting Om Namah Shivaya four or five times, gets great merit every day. Bilva leaves remove air pollution and protect health.

Life-compassion is a special religion in Chaturmas. It has never been considered a religion to commit atrocities against living beings. Therefore, human beings should try their best to be kind to the living beings. A religion which does not have mercy is considered corrupt. Having compassion towards all beings and having compassion for all is Sanatan Dharma, which is always acceptable to all men.
In all religions, charity is always praised by learned people. Donation of food, water, cow in Chaturmas, daily Vedapath and Havan – all these give great results.

Satkarma, Satkatha, service to good men, darshan of saints, worship of Lord Vishnu etc. to be engaged in good deeds and to be attached to charity – all these things are said to be rare in Chaturmas. Donation of milk, curd, ghee and whey in Chaturmas is very beneficial. One who donates knowledge, cow and land for the love of God in Chaturmas, he saves his ancestors. Especially in Chaturmas, offerings to the fire, donating to the devotees of God and holy brahmins and serving the cows well, should be worshiped.
Stitched clothes should not be worn during Pitrukarma (Shraadh). One who has given up sex on the occasion of false speech, anger and festival, he gets the fruit of Ashwamedha Yagya. Renunciation of false speech opens the door to salvation. Before using any substance, some part of it should be donated to a satpatra brahmin. The wealth which is given to a satpatra brahmin is inexhaustible. Similarly, one who has taken the rule of discarding some useful things in Chaturmas, he should also donate those things to a satpatra brahmin. By doing this the sacrifice becomes successful.

The bathing, charity, chanting, home, self-study and worship of God, which is done in Chaturmas, becomes inexhaustible. One who listens to the Puranas at one or both times, freed from sins, goes to the abode of Lord Vishnu. One who especially chants and chants the name of the Lord when he sleeps, gets many fold results.

Taking a pledge after Devshayani Ekadashi that “O Lord! I will do such good deeds for your happiness.” And following it is called fasting. This fast is more auspicious. Agnihotra, devotion, devotion to religion, good intellect, satsang, truth-speech, kindness in heart, simplicity and tenderness, sweet speech, love in good character, renunciation of Vedas, renunciation of theft, non-violence, shame, forgiveness, restraint of mind and senses, greed, Absence of anger and attachment, perfect knowledge of Vedic deeds and surrender of one’s mind to God – these rules should be adopted by man and observe the fast diligently.
