Vat Savitri Vrat, which falls on June 6th this year (Thursday), is an important Hindu tradition where married women fast and pray for the long life and well-being of their husbands. This vrat, observed on Jyeshtha Krishna Amavasya, is similar in significance to Karva Chauth. Here’s a guide for women on how to observe Vat Savitri Vrat, especially if they are on their menstrual cycle during the ritual.

Guidelines for Observing Vat Savitri Vrat During Menstruation
Fasting During Menstruation: Women can still observe the fast during their menstrual cycle, but there are specific guidelines to follow in Sanatan Dharma.
Completing the Vrat: If your menstrual cycle begins during the fast, you should continue with the vrat.
Personal Hygiene: On the day of Vat Savitri, if you are menstruating, take a bath and get ready as usual.
Avoiding Physical Contact with Ritual Items: Do not touch the idols of deities or any ritual items during your cycle.
Delegating Rituals: You can ask another woman or a family member to perform the rituals on your behalf. Ensure they follow the complete procedure of the worship.
Participation: You can still participate in other activities like washing your husband’s feet, tying a protective thread (raksha sutra), and applying tilak to your husband.
Listening to the Vrat Katha: Sit at a distance from the place of worship and listen to the Vat Savitri Vrat story.
Spiritual Practice: Even if you are menstruating, engage in mental recitation of mantras and maintain faith in God.
First-time Observers: If this is your first time observing the vrat and you start menstruating, it is advised to postpone the initiation of the vrat to the following year.
Maintaining Devotion: Keep your mental focus and devotion strong during this time.

By following these guidelines, women can respectfully and effectively observe the Vat Savitri Vrat even during their menstrual cycle, maintaining the sanctity of the ritual while adhering to traditional practices.
