Saptavar - Mangalvar Vrat

Saptavar - Weekly Vrat and Pooja:
MANGALVAR (Tuesday)

To obtain happiness, peace, prosperity, high position in life, respect, and obedient sons-daughters, one must observe the Mangalvar Vrat. This Vrat is a sure and successful way to receive 'mangal kamna' or auspicious wishes.

This Vrat is very powerful in freeing one from diseases and helps aid recovery in those who are sick.

Mangalvar Vrat is carried out for 21 weeks. By carrying out this Vrat in a regular manner, one obtains release from any bad influences of the 'Mangal Grah' or planet Mars.
One must awake before sunrise on Tuesdays. After cleaning up and bath etc, one must dress in red clothes. Lord Hanuman is prayed to today. All men and women observing this Vrat must eat only once today. Some items of food must be made with 'Atta and Gur' or wheat flour and jaggery. 

During the Pooja one must listen to the "Mangalvar Vrat Katha" or story. By regularly observing this Vrat, Lord Hanuman helps his devotees get rid of every fear and problem in life. One should therefore, also listen to Hanuman Chalisa and Bajrang Baan on this day.

Women also pray to Ma Mangla Gauri on Tuesdays.
