Rambhaa Triteeyaa Vrat
In Maargsheersh Maas, on the 3rd day of Shukla Paksh, one should intend to do this Vrat with this Mantra ( see this Mantra on p 402). Thus intending, one (the man or woman) should take bath and worship Paarvatee. In the night he should drink Kush water, and next day feed Braahman and give Dakshinaa of gold and salt. He should offer food according to his capacity to Shiv Jee. In all the 12 months one should worship Paarvate with different names, eat different things in the night, and give different things in Dakshinaa.

After doing this for one year, one should do Udyaapan of this Vrat. Make a gold idol of Umaa Maheshwar, establish them in a Mandap, and worship them methodically with a cooper pot full of Laddoo.
By worshipping Paarvatee thus, whatever one gets, I am unable to describe that. Since this Vrat was first done by Rambhaa, that is why it is called Rambhaa Vrat."
