Mangalvar Vrat Katha – Story of Tuesday Fasting in Hinduism

Tuesday fasting, or Mangalvar Vrat, is dedicated to Lord Hanuman and to Mangal Grah. In Hinduism, every fast has one or more story associated with it and those people observing the Vrat read or listen to the story on the fasting day. There are several stories associated with Tuesday fasting. This particular Mangalvar Vrat Katha is associated with Lord Hanuman.

We all have knowledge but not awareness – Mata Amritanandamayi Devi

Along with knowledge about the world, we have to understand ourselves. Only then will our education be complete.
Just as the sun doesn’t need the light of a candle, God doesn’t need anything from us. Helping the poor and needy is true prayer. Without compassion, all our efforts will be in vain—like pouring milk into a dirty vessel.
May the tree of our life be firmly rooted in the soil of love. Let good deeds be the leaves on that tree; may words of kindness form its flowers; may peace be its fruit.
We all have knowledge but not awareness. We must wake up within. Inner growth is real growth. Only then will we start gaining awareness along with knowledge.
You must become aware of the consequences of each of your actions. Then you won’t do anything wrong. Most of the wrong things we do are done due to lack of awareness. Therefore, we should always think about the consequences of an action before doing it.
Mata Amritanandamayi Devi
