Kartik Purnima 2021 Vrat Katha

In certain places in India, Karthik Purnima is also celebrated as the birthday of Vrinda, the personification of the Tulsi plant, and also of Kartikeya, the son of  Lord Shiva. The story behind the Kartik Purnima Vrat Katha thus goes like this;  the devotees of Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva, both observe fast on the day of Kartik Purnima and started their day by taking a holy bath early in the morning and reading the Kartik Purnima Vrat Katha.  The Katha had the story of the demon Tripurasura who defeated the Devas and ruled the entire universe. He became so powerful that he went on to create three worlds in space naming them as Tripura. The Deva was panic-stricken and sought the help of Lord Shiva, who in turn killed the Demon Tripursura with his Trident and addressed the devas to celebrate the day as a festival of lights by illuminating lamps.
