About Book:

This Scripture Sri Satyanarayana Vrata Katha is very famous and devotional in nature. All Hindu families perform this vrata puja (ritual performance) at least once in their lifetime. Many non-Hindu families also observe this vrata puja. The Satyanarayana Vrata Katha is known to the general public in the form of a dialogue between Saunakadi rsis and Sri Suta Purana. In the olden days of Vedic times, it was customary that rsis met and engaged themselves in the form of penance and austerity and tried to solve the problems of the general public by exchanging views with each other. Even today we do the same in the form of seminars, meetings, group discussions, workshops, etc. In the first chapter, basic rules and regulations to observe this vrata are explained along with benefits. From chapters two to five, practical performances are detailed establishing the magnanimity of the vrata and its story. In Chapter 5, the rebirth and reward of vrata performances are narrated setting forth the karma Siddhanta, i.e., theory of karma. One of the meanings of our story title Satya may be karma, i.e., conducts or actions-reactions. This karma Siddhanta is full of subtle truth but it would suffice to say that when we do good will never go to waste and will fructify at an opportune time. This Scripture Sri Satyanarayana Vrata Katha is so useful to our daily life that it takes care of everything including warding off our grief, control of our intelligence, and providing us worldly comforts-happiness. The most important part of this vrata is its astrological significance as one of the best and powerful remedies against various curses like pitr-Srapa, Brahma srapa, deva srapa, etc.
