Teej has special significance in Hindu culture. The festival, which takes place three times a year under the names of Hariyali, Haritalika and Kajari Teej, also brings good fortune to women. However, many often mistakenly observe Hariyali and Hartalika Teej as one. In this article, Pandit Indramani explains the difference between the two Teej.
Hariyali and Haritalika Teej are on their Hindu months. In fact, Hariyali Teej is the Teej, who falls in Shukla Paksha after Hariyali Amavasya in the month of Shravan, while Haritalika Teej is called Bhadrapada Shukla Teej.
Hariyali Teej and Haritalika Teej are celebrated by observing fasts to please Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva. It is believed that after observing the fast of Mother Parvati of Hariyali Teej, it should be done till Hartalika Teej. This leads to the realization of eternal good fortune.
Hariyali Teej is considered a fun day. Fairs are organized on this day with the Teej ride. Apart from this, strict rules of fasting must be followed at Haritalika Teej.
There is another difference in the two Teej. According to religious beliefs, Haritalika Teej is known as Badi Teej while Hariyali Teej is commonly known as Teej.
