Story (Katha) Of Jivitputrika Fast

Regarding Jivitputrika Vrat, it is said that during the Mahabharata war, Ashwatthama was very disappointed with the death of his father, Guru Drona and friend Duryodhana and he wanted to take revenge from the Pandavas. To take revenge he went to the Pandavas’ camp where 5 people were sleeping. Ashwatthama thought that they were Pandavas and killed all five. Those five persons who died were the five sons of Draupadi. After this incident, Arjun captured Ashwatthama and also snatched his divine gem from him. Angered by this, Ashwatthama used Brahmastra to kill the child growing in the womb of Uttara, wife of Arjuna’s son Abhimanyu.

Then, in order to bring Uttara’s son back to life and to carry forward the lineage of Pandavas, Shri Krishna gave the fruits of all his good deeds and brought the child back to life. This son growing in the womb was named Jivitputrika and from then onwards mothers started observing this fast for the long life and health of their child. In this fast, there is a tradition to worship Lord Jimutavahana during the Pradosh period.
