Hinduism : The festival of Teej symbolizes reunion of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Goddess Parvati followed fasting and austerity for 108 long years. In the 108th birth of Goddess Parvati, Lord Shiva accepted her love. Goddess Parvati is also known as Teej Mata. Till today, the festival of Teej is celebrated to honour the devotion of Goddess Parvati – popularly known as TEEJ MATA. Knowing that Lord Shiva has accepted her as a wife, she was delighted and celebrated the reunion during the pleasant time of monsoon, in the month of Shravan. Hence, to date, the festival is well known as Hariyali Teej or Shravani Teej. Singhara Teej is remembered as a reunion of Shiva and Shakti.
The festival of Hariyali Teej also signifies the bond of love of Radha-Krishna. Hence, Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati, Lord Krishna, and Goddess Radha are the ones who are to be worshipped.
