Kokila Vrat 2016 date for Goddess Sati and Shiva

Kokila Vrat is dedicated to Goddess Sati and Shiva. It is annually observed on the Ashada Purnima day. Kokila Vrat 2011 date is July 15. There is a popular belief that women who observe Kokila Vrat will never lose their husband to death. Another belief says worshiping an idol of cuckoo made from clay on Kokila Vrat will help in getting loving and handsome husband.


The main observance include waking up early and taking bath in a water body like pond, river or sea and making an idol of cuckoo from clay and worshiping it.

Kokila (or cuckoo) is associated with Goddess Sati. There is a legend that Goddess Sati spent 1000 celestial years as a cuckoo before she got back her shape and merged with Shiva. This happened after the incident mentioned in the Puranas in which Sati immolated herself.
