Vivah Panchami Significance

The day of Vivah Panchami is considered significant and sacred in the Ramayana. Lord Ram is an incarnation of Lord Vishnu and is the eldest son of King Dashrath of Ayodhya. Lord Ram visited Janakpur, Goddess Sita’s birthplace, on the ‘Margashira’ Panchami. He married Sita after breaking Lord Shiva’s bow in the Swayamvara. On Vivah Panchami, worshippers have been celebrating the wedding of Lord Rama and Devi Sita to immortalise the ritual.

Vivah Panchami Story

King Dasharath was once approached by Maharishi Vishwamitra, requesting him to allow Ram to guard his Yagna. King Dasharath reluctantly agreed and allowed Prince Ram and Lakshman to go with sage Vishwamitra. Vishwamitra successfully completed his Yagna and returned to Mithila along with Ram and Laxman. During that time, Mithila’s ruler Janak had organised a Swayamvar for Princess Sita.

The Swayamvar task for all participants was to lift and string a massive bow, Shiva Dhanusha, which was laid resting on the ground. However, it was such a heavy and enormous bow that participants failed to lift it. Sage Vishwamitra then asked Ram, who strung the bow, breaking it into two. King Janak was delighted and got Sita married to Lord Ram.
