    The story of Surya Saptami Vrat (Surya/Rath Saptami Vrat Katha)

    Once  Yudhishthira asked Lord Shri Krishna a question, “God tell me which fast a woman can observe in Kalyug to become fortunate.” Shri Krishna narrated a story on this. In ancient times, a prostitute named Indumati once went to sage Vashishtha and said, “O Muniraj, I have not done any religious work till date. Tell me how I can get salvation.” After listening to the prostitute, Vashishtha Muni said, “There is no fast better than Achala Saptami which gives freedom, good luck and beauty to women. 
    That’s why you observe this fast, you will be well.” Indumati duly observed the fast on the basis of his teachings and went to heaven after leaving her body under its influence. There she was made the heroine of all Apsaras.

    By observing this fast methodically, all wishes are fulfilled, as well as happiness and prosperity remain.
