Sawan Somwar 2023: Significance of Sawan's Somwar

According to mythology, it is believed that on the Somwar of the month of Sawan, the demons and gods churned the ocean. Lord Shiva consumed the poison that came out during this, due to which his body was badly burnt. To calm the burning sensation, he wore the half moon on his head. 

On the other hand, according to some other stories, Mother Parvati also kept a special fast on Sawan Somwar to get Lord Shiva as her husband.

Devotees of Lord Shiva keep fast on Sawan Somvar by consuming only fruits and water. They can also consume dry fruits, nuts, sago, water chestnut flour, bottle gourd, potato, sweet potato, milk, paneer and ghee. 

Worship method on Somwar of Sawan

Mother Parvati is also worshipped along with Lord Shiva on Mondays of Sawan. Wake up early in the morning on the day of worship and after taking bath and meditation, take a pledge to worship and fast on Sawan Somwar in front of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati. Now first worship Lord Ganesha, then go to Shiva temple and anoint Lord Shiva with Panchamrit. On the other hand, things like chunri, mehndi and bangles are offered to Goddess Parvati.

Worshipers also wear Rudraksh Mala and recite the Shravan Somvar Vrat Katha on every Monday. Devotees are advised to wake up during Brahma Muhurta, clean the house to get rid of impurities and sprinkle Gangajal around the house on the day of fasting. Sawan Somvar ingredients include water, curd, milk, sugar, ghee, honey, panchamrit, cloth, janeu, sandalwood, raw rice, flowers, bel patra/leaves, hemp, dhatura, kamal gatta, prasad, betel nut, cloves, cardamom Are. Apart from this, turmeric, ketaki flower and basil leaves are prohibited in the worship of Lord Shiva.

After this, Janeu is also offered to Lord Shiva. Devotees can offer bhog like bilva leaves, sweets and fruits. Light a lamp in the temple and chant mantras of Lord Shiva. Avoid eating food, especially grains on this day. Fruits can be consumed. Performing Rudrabhishek Puja on a Shravan Monday removes all challenges and fulfills the wishes of the devotees.
