Katyayani-vrata ends

Katyayani-vrata is a month-long vow of worshipping the demigoddess Katyayani, a form of Krishna‘s material, illusory energy. Katyayani is often worshiped for temporary, material gains, but Krishna’s cowherd girlfriends, the gopis, worshiped her to have Krishna as their husband. The Srimad-Bhagavatam describes how the gopis followed this vrata in the chapter entitled “Krishna Steals the Garments of the Unmarried Gopi Girls.”
