Mangal or planet Mars, one of the Navgrahas (nine planets) is understood to be Goddess Bhuma (Earth) and Lord Varaha's son. For the unversed, the Earth (Bhuma) is an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi, and Lord Varaha is the third avatar of Lord Vishnu.

This graha bestows property and conveyance .Tuesdays are intended for the worship of Mangal who loves the chanting of Sama Veda. If one observes the fast on Tuesday for 21 times, the unlucky influence of Tuesday (Mangal) can be removed. The legend that depicts the influence of the worship of MANGAL goes as follows, and is narrated whenever a worship or offering is made to the deity:

An old woman used to observe fast on every Tuesday and chanted Mangal Mantras to appease the Lord Mangal. Her son was named Mangaliya. Lord Mangal desired to test the piety of this old woman. He arrived at her home in the disguise of a Brahmin. He asked her "I am hungry and I shall prepare my own food but you must plaster the ground with cow-dung." The woman then explained to him that since it was a Tuesday; she does not plaster cow-dung on that day. Instead she offered to sprinkle water so the Brahmin could prepare his food. The Brahmin insisted on only cooking on a cow-dung plastered surface. The woman refused and said that she could do anything else except cow-dung plaster. The Brahmin said, "Let your son lie upside down, I shall cook on his back."

After some thought, the woman agreed to this bound by her Dharma and called her son. The disguised Brahmin lit the furnace on his back and cooked his food. After cooking, the Brahmin asked the woman to call her son so that he could take the auspicious food. The woman, in grief, told him to not make such cruel jokes and since after cooking on his back, he would not have survived. The Brahmin explained and insisted that she call the son. When the woman called, the son came running. The Brahmin said, "Old woman, your fast is successful. With kindness, your mind is also full of devotion and faith. May you be ever happy." The deity (Mangal) in disguise disappeared. This story explains the benefits of Mangal worship and chanting.
