Anant Chaturdashi Vrat Katha, Story | Ananta Chaturdashi Vratha Katha

Anant Chaturdashi vrat katha, story of Ananta Chaturdashi vratha is mentioned in several Puranas as a conversation between Lord Krishna and Yudhistira. Krishna suggested Yudhistira to observe this vratha to get all his wealth and kingdom back. Vrat katha goes like this…

There was a Brahmin called Sumant. His wife, Diksha, died after giving birth to a baby girl. The baby girl was named Sushila. Sumant married another woman named Karkash. Sushila was tortured a lot by Karkash in her childhood. When she grew young she married Kaundinya and got rid of her step mother’s cruel behavior.

When Sushila was bathing in the river with other women, she saw them offering prayers to Lord Ananta. She also joined with the women and prayer to the Lord. They became very rich in quick time. After few months, her husband observed Anant string in her hand and removed it and burnt saying they were rich because of their hard work and not because of this Ananta thread.

After this unfortunate incident, they lost huge wealth in quick time and became poor. Kaundinya realized the significance of Anant thread and observed severe penance for 14 years and retained all his wealth by the God’s grace.

Ananta Chaturdashi or Ananta Vratam 2022 date is September 9.
