Legend of the Festival
As per Hindu tradition, Cow is considered as the holy animals. Legend says that, in the Cow’s feet the entire Hindu Deities (Devi – Devtas) reside. Therefore, when we offer prayer to Holy cow, our prayers directly reach to all the Deities through the cow, and finally we get blessings in the form of prosperity and good luck. The day of Krishna Pakhsa is always considered as the favourable day to offer our prayers.
Women keep Vrat (fast) on Vats Dwadashi and after taking early morning bath, they worship the cows and their calves. Women are allowed to eat only cereals and sprouts and the same is later consumed in the form of Holy Prasad. There is a restriction on the consumption of any milk products on Vats dwadashi festival.
