Celebrating the Significance of Vatapournima: The Divine Fast and the Versatile Jackfruit

Vatapournima, also known as Vat Savitri Purnima or Vat Purnima, is a significant festival observed by married women in India. They fast from sunrise to moonrise, praying for the well-being and longevity of their husbands. This day is devoted to the story of Savitri, a devoted wife who fought against death to save her husband's life.

Vatapournima, holds immense cultural and religious significance in many parts of India. This festival not only emphasizes the importance of fasting but also celebrates the versatile and nutritious jackfruit.

In this blog, we explore the significance of Vatapournima, the benefits of fasting, and the delight of indulging in fried jackfruit in coconut oil, known as "फणसाचे तळलेले गरे," made from premium quality jackfruit sourced and processed in the lush region of Konkan.

Fasting : How and Why

Fasting on Vatapournima holds a deep spiritual significance. It is believed to cleanse the mind, body, and soul, promoting self-discipline and devotion. Fasting not only purifies our physical and mental being but also strengthens our willpower and resilience.

During the fast, married women abstain from consuming food and water, demonstrating their love, dedication, and sacrifice for their husbands. This observance fosters a sense of unity, love, and gratitude in married relationships.

Jackfruit..The vegetarian meat

While fasting plays a central role during Vatapournima, indulging in a nutrient-rich and delectable treat is equally important. Jackfruit, a versatile fruit that adds a burst of flavor and nutrition to our festivities.

Jackfruit, known as the "vegetarian meat," is highly regarded for its unique texture and taste. It is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants. This tropical fruit offers numerous health benefits, including improved digestion, enhanced immune function, and regulated blood pressure.
