Month of Saavn is devoted to Shiva. Throughout the month, devotees are seen worshiping the deity with all they can. On the auspicious eve of Sawan in 2015, let us discover the reason as to why the Lord is associated with Saavn.
In the beginning of this article, we have given a brief introduction of the legend of Samudra Manthan. It is this mythological legend, which is the real reason behind celebrating Sawan. Want to know how? Read the reason here...
Once all the Devas (Gods) and Asuras (demons) were churning the ocean of milk. During the process, a total of fourteen items came out, out of which one was Halahala (poison). This deadly poison was having the potential to destroy the entire universe. Out of fear, all the gods and demons approached Lord Shiva and asked for help. To save the life on Earth, Shiva took the poison and swallowed it. With the action of the poison, Shiva’s throat turned blue and he came to be recognized as Neelkanth (‘Neel’ means ‘blue’ + ‘Kanth’ means ‘throat’ = one who has blue throat).
As this incident took place in the month of Sawan; thus, Shravan is celebrated with great zeal and gusto by all the Hindus. Though each day of Sawan is fruitful, but Mondays of Shravan month are the most auspicious. Known as Sawan Somvar, they are dedicated to Shiva and are very important for married women and young girls.
The first and the foremost important thing about Shravan month is the Saawan Somvar Vrat. Every Monday falling in the Shravan month is known as Sawan Somvar. People observe Sawan Somvar Vrat and worship Lord Shiva with pure heart, mind, and soul.
Sawan Somvar Vrat starts with taking bath and dressing in clean clothes. Other than a clean body, a clean mind with positive thoughts is what you need to fetch the best of Sawan Somvar Vrat. According to the customs of Sawan Somvar Vrat, Lord Shiva is worshiped with Bael leaves (Bael Patra), fresh fruits, incense sticks, and not to forget ‘Panchamrit’ (mixture of honey, milk, ghee, yogurt, and sugar). It is said that glory of Sawan Somvar Vrat is so high that any wish can be fulfilled by observing it. Flock of devotees visit Shiva temples on this day to worship the deity and seek his blessings for a meritorious fortune.
The month of Savan or Saavan is extremely sacred and is observed throughout the country. Religious and spiritual rituals performed in Shravan are believed to produce fruitful results and help in cherishing luxuries of life. As the entire Saavn month is devoted to Lord Shiva; therefore, performing rituals associated with the deity are quite favorable. Other than worshiping the Lord in Savan in 2015 and observing Sawan Somvar Vrat, following the below mentioned Saavan rituals can help you in every possible aspect.
Though there are a number of ways to please Lord Shiva, but as here we are talking about Sawan, why not to talk about performing Rudrabhishekam? According to the beliefs, Rudrabhishekam is the best way to reach out to the Lord. Every year, a number of devotees perform this ceremony during the Sawan month and cherish prosperity and never ending success.
This Puja is performed at Pradosh Kaal (sunset), as it is believed that Shiva perform Tandava (holy dance) during this time. Vedas say that meditating in the Pradosh Kaal is extremely auspicious. In Rudrabhishek ceremony, the Lord is worshiped in his Rudra Avatar.
If you want to get relief from your sins and evil tendencies, perform this ritual during Sawan in 2015. Other than warding off all the negativity, Rudrabhishek will bestow you with over all property and fortune. Get back your lost happiness, peace, wealth, harmony, and togetherness by performing Rudrabhishek in the holy month of Sawan in 2015.
Let us now throw some light on the Mantras that are chanted during the month of Sawan to fetch the blessings of Shiva. Mainly two Mantras are chanted by the devotees and they are:
On the auspicious time of Saawan in 2015, let us understand the meaning of both of these Mantras. By chanting these Mantras, you can get highly auspicious results:
ॐ त्र्यम्बकं यजामहे सुगन्धिं पुष्टिवर्धनम्।
उर्वारुकमिव बन्धनान् मृत्योर्मुक्षीय मा मृतात्।।
Meaning : We worship the deity who has three eyes and sustains life of all beings. O Lord, free us from the cycle of birth and death and help us to attain salvation.
ॐ नमः शिवाय।।
Meaning : We respect and worship Shiva and bow to honor him.
