HINDU FASTS & FESTIVALS : -25.4.2.
25-Satya Narayana Vrata-4.
4.The Story of King Tungadhwaja-2.
With a sore but repentant heart, he made his way to the banyan tree where the boys had worshipped the Lord.
He himself now performed the worship with intense faith and devotion.
Lord Satya Narayana showered His Grace upon the king.
He got back his lost property and his children.
The king thereafter regularly worshipped the Lord and lived happily.
He who observes this Vrata, which is even being observed by the gods themselves, with faith, devotion and self-surrender; he who hears the sacred story of Lord Satya Narayana with faith and devotion; he who attends the worship and eats the prasad—he certainly attains health, wealth and joy.
He is uplifted from the mire of worldliness and the clutches of death.
He finally abides in the Truth.
In the Kali Yuga, worship of Lord Hari through the Satya Narayana Vrata makes one happy, peaceful and prosperous.
This is the truth described in the ancient epics.
