Rishi Panchami Rajaswala Vrat Katha, Story of Uttank and Sushila

Lord Brahma narrated the legend of a generous Brahmin called Uttank. Uttank lived with his wife Sushila in Vidharba. Uttanks wife Sushila is very much dedicated to her husband. The devoted couple has a son and a daughter. Their daughter married to a young man but he died after few months of their marriage.

The parents constructed a cottage on the bank of the holy river Ganga and lived in it with the widow daughter. One day when she was sleeping in the cottage her body was covered with the ants. The parents were frightened and called the Brahmins. Brahmins performed some rituals and confirmed that in her previous birth, she had entered into the kitchen on the day of menstruation.

The Brahmins told them about the significance and puja procedure of Rushi Panchami Rajaswala vrat and asked them to perform the vrata to get rid of the bad effects of the daughters mistake in her previous birth. Uttank and Sushila made their daughter to perform Rishi Panchami puja and freed her from the rajasvala dosha of her previous birth.

According the scriptures and Hindu beliefs, the girl on the first day of menstruation is Chandalini (demon). On the second day she is considered as Bhramdhatini, a witch. On the third day, the girl is a washer woman and on the fourth or the final day after performing bath, she becomes purified.

    We all very well know that our all the festivals, beliefs & rituals are based on science. So we should follow them without having any doubt. I believe that Sama Pancham rituals is being observed every year just to remind women, not to do any hard work, entering kitchen, temples etc during menstrual periods. This is manly due to women normally remain physically weak during these five days cycle and during the month she works round the clock to take care of his family. Hence, it is necessary to let her take rest during these painful days. This may be the reason why this rituals have been followed.

    There is always a darker side for such practies. Today science does have explanations behind this oral wisdom, which has survived our generation for 1000 of years , with least cases of pcod and women reproductive problem as compare to what we have been facing currently. For me and many educated women’s in India,the logic that we have sustained generations on this practices is enough logical to follow the tradition practices….like sama pacham ..
