Madhusrava Hariyali Teej

Jaya Ekadashi

The word “Hariyali" means greenery (represents affluence, growth and prosperity). The auspicious day, Madhusrava Hariyali Teej is dedicated to Lord Mahadeva and Maa Parvati. Hariyali Teej is observed on the Tritiya (third day) of the Shukla Paksha (bright fortnight of the moon) in the month of August (‘Shravan’ Mahina) as per the Hindu lunar calendar. 

Shravan month generally marks the start of rainy season, i.e. monsoon in India. It is believed that Goddess Parvati celebrated union with God Shiva in the pleasant green monsoon period after a long duration of separation. Therefore, Madhusrava Tritiya or Hariyali Teej is also known as Madhursravani.
