About Shitala Satam Vrat 

Shitala Satam Vrat is Observed on Shitala Satam(Day of Seven) Day.Shitala Satam is popularly known as Shitala Shasti and is dedicated to Goddess Shitala the goddess of pox and measles. It is observed for the welfare of children and others and to escape from measles and small pox. Shitala Satam is observed in Shravan Month as per Gujarati calendar. Skanda Purana describes the iconography of Goddess Shitala Mata.On this day Shitalamata’s puja is performed after taking bath with cold water. One cold meal is eaten during the day. 

It is written in the Skand Purana that donkey is the vehicle of Shitalamata. Shitalamata holds a broom in her one hand and a kalash (container with water) in her other hand. The one who observes the Shitala vrat bathes in a river or in a lake. There Shitaladevi’s image (Idol) is placed on the banks of river or lake. Shitaladevi is offered cooked food and ghee. On this day cold food is eaten; the food that was cooked the previous day (cooked on chhatthi or sixth day). For the vratdhari (one who observes this vrat), it is forbidden to eat warmed or hot food on this day.

Those who can afford it, can make golden image of Shitaladevi and together with the image of the vehicle (donkey) place the devi’s image on eight petalled lotus flower. Offer obeisance with joined palms saying ‘My pranam to Shitaladevi’ and make puja. In some places people offer raw flour and gor (molasses) as naivedya to the devi. It is customary to eat only one meal on Shitala Saptami day.
