Story of Satyanarayan Katha

The whole context of Satyanarayan Vrat Katha is set in ancient times, Shaunkadirishi reached the ashram of Maharishi Soot at Naimisharanya. The sages ask Maharishi that what is the simple remedy for liberation from worldly suffering and sadness, and the achievement of the transcendental goal? Maharishi Soot tells the sages that Narada had asked a similar question to Lord Vishnu.

Lord Vishnu, the creator of the universe, said that he would describe such a vrat (fast), by which all men and women of the world will get freedom from sins, by eliminating poverty, man will live happily by floating in the sea of happiness and wealth. By observing this fast of Shri Satyanarayan Bhagwan, all his wishes will be fulfilled. This is the only way to attain salvation in Kali Yuga. Lord Satyanarayan, one day went to a man in the form of an old man.

After telling him the method of fasting, he became deeply meditative. The poor man decided to observe the fast prescribed by the old man and could not sleep that night. Money and grains started raining in his house. Now he adheres to the fast every month and gets lots of money in alms. When that man, endowed with wealth, fasted regularly every month, many others joined in that fast.

At the same time, an old woodcutter, who had brought wood from the forest, passed by and decided to fast for Lord Satyanarayan. By thinking like this, he got more money for the wood and grains and bought bananas, ghee, milk, curd, wheat flour, and sugar. He lived happily and attained salvation and went to Baikunth Dham. Then, Lord Vishnu tells the story of those people who performed this fast after listening to the Satyanarayan Katha.

In ancient times, a wise and truthful king named Ulkamukh ruled in Kanakpur. He used to worship Lord Satyanarayana by visiting the temple every day and donating a lot of food, clothes, and money to the poor. His palace was filled with wealth and all his subjects were living happily. A rich merchant approached him and asked him about his secret. The king told him the method of fasting and worship. After listening to the story, the king also gave prasad to the merchant. Likewise, the story unfolds into five sections which are known as Satyanarayan Katha.

How to do Satyanarayan Katha?

In the first chapter of the Satyanarayan Vrat Katha book, it has been told that how to worship Lord Satyanarayan. In brief, this method is as follows-

Those who take a vow to worship Satyanarayan should keep a fast throughout the day. Make an alpana, thereafter cleaning the place of worship. Plant a banana tree near the four feet of this post. Install the idol of Shaligram or Thakur Ji or Shri Satyanarayana on this post. While worshiping, first of all, worship Ganapati, then Indradi Dashdikpal and respectively Panch Lokpal, Rama along with Sita, Lakshmana, Radha Krishna. After worshiping them, worship Thakur Ji and Satyanarayan. After this worship Lakshmi Mata and finally Mahadev and Brahma Ji.

After worship, perform an aarti of all the gods and distribute prasad by taking Charanamrit. After serving the food to the priest, you should take your own food after taking his blessings. In their worship, apart from banana leaves and fruits, Panchamrita, Panchagavya, betel nut, betel, sesame, moli, roli, kumkum, durva are used from which the Lord is worshipped. For the worship of Satyanarayana, Panchamrit is prepared by mixing milk, honey, banana, Gangajal, Tulsi leaves, dry fruits, which are very dear to God. In the form of prasad, after roasting the flour in addition to the confectionery, adding sugar to it, a prasad is made, which is called Sattu (Panjiri), it is also enjoyed.
