In such a situation it will start with Nahay-Khay from tomorrow and it is said that this fast, which is done for the good health and longevity of the son, is mainly done in Bihar and parts of Uttar Pradesh. In such a situation, today we are going to tell you a story about it, which you must listen to on this day. Let's know the second story of this fast.
Story of 'Jeemutavahana' - There was a prince of Gandharvas whose name was 'Jeemutavahana'. He was very generous and benevolent. He got power at a very young age but he did not approve of it. His mind did not seem to be in the royal party. In such a situation, he left the state and went to the forest to serve his father. At the same time, he was married to a Rajakanya named Malayavati.
One day while traveling in the forest, Jemutavahana saw the old woman moaning. He could not stand it and asked the old lady the reason for his grief. On this, the old lady said, 'I am a woman of Nagavansh and I have only one son. It has been pledged to hand a snake in front of Pakshiraj Garuda to eat daily, according to which today is the day to send my son 'Shankhchud'.
You tell me, my only son has climbed the sacrifice, then I will spend my life on whose support. Hearing this, Jeemutavahana was heartbroken. He said that he will protect his son's life. Jemutavahana said that he would cover himself in a red cloth and lie down on the slaughter instead of the son of that woman. Jemutavahana did the same. At the right time, Birdsraj reached Garuda and he caught the Jeemutavahana covered in red cloth in his paws and sat on the top of the mountain.
Garudji was surprised to see that he who has arrested him in his clutches is not coming out of his eyes and tears from his mouth. This was the first time. Finally, Garudji asked Jemutavahana to introduce him. When asked, Jemutavahana told all his things that happened to that old lady. Birds Raj Garuda was shocked. He could not believe that anyone could give such a sacrifice for the help of anyone.
Garudji was very happy to see this bravery and gave life to Jemutavahana. At the same time, he also talked about not taking a sacrifice of serpents in the future. Thus the son of a mother was protected. It is believed that since then the Jemutavahana is worshiped for the protection of the son.
