Story of Vivah Panchami
According to mythological beliefs, Sita Mata was born from the earth. It is said that when King Janak was plowing, he found a child and brought him to his palace and began to raise it like a daughter. He named the child Sita. People used to call him Janaka’s daughter Sita or Janaki. It is believed that Mother Sita once lifted the bow of Lord Shiva kept in the temple. None other than Parashurama had raised that bow. On the same day, King Janak decided that he would marry his daughter with the one who would be able to lift this bow. After some time, Swayamvar was kept for the marriage of Mata Sita. Invitations were sent to many great nobles, kings and princes for self-rule. Along with Maharishi Vasistha, Maryada Purushottam Ram and his younger brother Lakshman were also present in the audience gallery.
The swayamvara started and all the kings, men and princes came one by one, but none of them could shake the wealth of Shiva away. Seeing this, King Janaka became very sad and said that there is no eligible groom for my daughter. Then Maharishi Vashisht asked Rama to take a bow by taking part in himself. Rama obeyed the Guru’s orders and picked up the bow in one go and started offering it, but then the bow broke. With this, Ram himself won and Mother Sita put a garland around his neck. It is believed that as soon as Sita put a garland around the neck of Rama, all the three people woke up happily. This is the reason why even on the day of Vivah Panchami, Lord Ram and Mother Sita are aligned with pomp.
