Ahoi Ashtami Vrat Katha:

In the story of Ahoi Ashtami, a loan shark lived in a city a long time ago. He had seven sons. When there were only seven days left until Diwali, the family cleaned the house. The moneylender’s wife went to an open pit mine near the river to get the mud to fix up their house. The moneylender’s wife started digging for mud in the mine, but she didn’t know that a hedgehog had made a home there. She was doing this when her hoe hit a hedgehog cub and killed it right away.

When the money lender’s wife saw this, she felt very sad. She went back home with a broken heart. A few days later, the woman’s oldest son died because of the curse from the hedgehog’s mother. Then her second son died, then her third, and so on. In one year, all seven of their sons died.

Since all of her children had died, the woman became very sad. One day, she told her sad story to one of her elderly neighbors while she was crying. She admitted that she did not do the sin on purpose, that the cub was killed by accident, and that all seven of her sons died after that. When the old lady heard this, she tried to comfort her by telling her that since she was sorry, half of her sin had been paid for.

The woman also said that she could get help from Goddess Bhagwati on the day of Mata Ahoi Ashtami by drawing a picture of a hedgehog and its cubs, worshipping them, and apologizing for what she had done. The woman also said that if she did this, God’s grace would wash away all of her sins.

The wife of the moneylender did what the old woman told her to do and worshipped Mother Ahoi. She began fasting every year on the eighth day of the Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik. Over time, she had seven sons. Since then, the Ahoi Ashtami vrat has been done every year.
