Vat Savitri Vrat Katha
According to the Vat Savitri Vrat Katha, when newly married Svitri's husband died then Lord Yamraj was going taking soul of Savitri's husband Satyavan, Savitri also started going behind Lord Yamraj to get back Satyawan's life. When Yamraj crossed the boundary of the earth and asked other people, he asked Savitri to return. Savitri denied this by saying that according to his wife's religion, as long as her husband will go, she will also accompany him.
Seeing Savitri's persistence, Yamraj asked Savitri instead of asking her husband's life she can ask him three boons. In the first instance, Savitri asked for a boon to be the mother of 100 sons, which Yama Raj gave. On this, Savitri reminded Yama Raja of the boon and said that according to his fast he can become the mother of a hundred sons, but how can a woman with a paternal wife do so without her husband?
Yamraj had given the boon, so he handed Satyawan as a gram to Savitri. As long as all this was happening, the body of Satyawan's body was laid down under the Banyan tree. The same tree protected the body of the Satyawan, so in order to give a thankfulness to him, he orbited the tree and protecting the raw cotton yard around it.
This is the reason that during the fasting, the offerings of gram are definitely made and the worship of the tree is also worshiped.
