This yajna was led by Saunaka Muni in Naimisaranya. There are five set of chapters, stories or kathas which bring out the glory of the benevolent Lord Satya Narayan.
In each of these stories, we get to learn that the characters suffered as they did not keep their promise to perform the puja once their wishes were fulfilled.
As Lord Satya Narayan is an embodiment of truth, one needs to keep the promise given to the Lord and perform the puja to hail the great Lord SatyaNarayan once the desires or wishes get fulfilled by his grace. So, one should never ignore the grace of Lord Satya Narayan. He saw that the humans were suffering immensely. He was very grieved and decided to go to the abode of Lord Vishnu to seek a solution for the problems of human beings.
Narada Muni bowed down before the Lord and told him that he was much grieved on seeing the sufferings of humankind. He asked him about the solution to end the miseries of the world.
It should be performed to overcome the obstacles and problems in the life. Lord Vishnu said that anyone who performs this Vratham and Puja would get all the pleasures on earth and attain their goal. The fast results in the fulfillment of desires and one attain liberation from the cycle of life and death.
One should do Sri Satya Narayana Swami Katha with a Brahmin along with his family for dissolving all sorrows and sufferings. The one who performs the Katha is blessed with riches and wealth. They will be blessed with children. They will be victorious in all their endeavors. Lord Vishnu told the puja Vidhi and said that after performing the puja and prayers, one should have the Prasadam and then take their meals. They should sing, praise, and chant the mantras of Sri Satya Narayana Swami.
By following this procedure, their wishes will be fulfilled. It is a vrata and puja for the Kaliyuga and rewards very quickly. This is the first chapter of Lord Satya Narayana Swami. Once upon a time, there used to live a very innocent Brahmin in a place called Sunder Kashipur.
He used to beg for his daily bread. The poor state of the Brahmin very moved the Lord. The Lord disguised himself as an old Brahmin and approached the poor man.
The Lord asked him why he was sad. The Lord inquired him about his difficulties and asked him if he could help him. The Brahmin told that he was very poor. He said that he has to roam in search of his daily bread. He pleaded that is there any way to be freed from this sorrow. Upon hearing the words of the poor Brahmin, the Lord disguised as an old Brahmin said that Sri Satya Narayan Puja has the power to grant all the wishes of people if it is performed diligently. The Lord told the poor Brahmin that he should perform the Sri Satya Narayan Puja and keep the fast to get rid of all his sorrows and get moksha.
The Lord then told all the details of the prayer and disappeared. The poor Brahmin decided that he will perform the puja. With the blessings of the Lord, the Brahmin received a lot of money on that day.
He bought all the things necessary for the prayer. He performed the Satya Narayan Puja along with his family. The blessings of the Lord Satya Narayan showered on the Brahmin. All his sorrows vanished, and the Brahmin became rich. The Lord went on to narrate another story.
Once the same Brahmin was performing the prayers. A wood-cutter happened to pass by his house. He was thirsty. He bowed down and asked the Brahmin what he was doing.
He said that whosoever performs this puja overcomes all the obstacles in life and attains wealth, wisdom, and happiness. The Brahmin told the wood-cutter that he had acquired the wealth in the same way by performing Satya Narayan Puja.
The wood-cutter felt happy upon hearing these words from the Brahmin. He quenched his thirst and ate the puja Prasadam. He then left his house. He resolved that whatever money he would get by selling the woods today; he will use to perform the Satya Narayan Puja.
He loaded the bundle of wood on to his head and went roaming in Sunder Nagar selling the woods. He felt happy and bought all the necessary items for the puja. He then went home, cleaned himself and performed the Sri Satya Narayan Puja with his family with full devotion. He became rich and had all the pleasures of life. At the end of his life, he reached heaven. Once there was a wise king named Ulkamuk. He was very religious. He used to go to the temple daily and perform charity.
He had a beautiful and pious wife. A wealthy merchant happened to pass by the site. He anchored his boat and went towards the king.
He asked the king about the details of the Vratham. He said that whosoever does this Vratham gains worldly pleasures and attains salvation. The merchant said to the king that he was childless and would like to perform the Vratham. The king then told the merchant the entire details of the Vratham. After some time his wife Lilawati became pregnant and delivered a baby girl. They named the child Kalawati. Lilawati reminded the merchant of his promise to keep the fast and perform Sri Satya Narayan Puja.
However, the merchant postponed the puja and said he would perform the puja when his daughter is ready to be married. At the moment he was busy in business. Finally, Kalawati was married to a handsome boy from Kanchan Nagar. However, the merchant forgets his promise to do the Satya Narayan Puja and Fast.
The Lord became angry with the merchant. He wanted to teach him a lesson. After some time the merchant left for a business trip with his son-in-law. They reached a village named Ratanpur. King Chandraketu ruled that village. It so happened that the thieves robbed the wealth of the king and left the loot at the place where the merchant was staying. Taking them as robbers, the guards took the merchant and his son-in-law to the king and told him that they were responsible for the theft.
The King did not question or listened to them and ordered his guards to put them behind bars. His wife and daughter had to beg for food. Kalawati listened to the prayers and took Prasadam. She then left for home. As it was quite, late Lilawati was worried about her daughter. She said that by performing this puja, all the wishes get fulfilled. Lilawati soon recollected the long-pending promise of performing Satya Narayan Puja. She did the fast and performed the Satya Narayan Puja.
She pleaded the Lord for forgiveness. Lord Satya Narayan got pleased with the prayer and fast done by Lilavati. The Lord said that if he does not do this, his kingdom will be destroyed. The King then followed the orders of the Lord and returned all their belongings and set them free. The King told the merchant that he could now return to home.
The merchant and his son-in-law were very happy. They bowed down before the king and left for home. This is the end of this chapter of Lord Satya Narayan. He then started his journey home-wards along with his son-in-law. When they had gone little further, Lord Satya Narayan wanted to test them. The Lord took the disguise of an old man and went up to the merchant. He asked the merchant what he was carrying in his boat.
