Legend of Teja Dashmi

Legend has it that Tejaji died while protecting a herd of cattle from hunters. The only part of his body that was not damaged in the fight was his tongue. While he lay dying, he allowed a snake to bite his tongue. The snake bestowed on him the blessing that anyone who sought the blessings of Tejaji would never die from a snakebite. This blessing would also be bestowed on those who prayed for the health of their livestock if they were bitten by a snake.

The people of Rajasthan revere Tejaji to this day by observing Teja Dashmi.
