Monday Fast is solely dedicated to Lord Shiva. Millions of People admire Lord from the depth of their hearts with extreme devotion. Every Monday you notice a massive crowd of devotees in Shiva temples, because Monday is very dear to Mahadev. Devotees who observe Upvaas on Monday will have their desires fulfilled and will be blessed with wisdom.
🕉 People who are facing obstacles in married life or facing delays in marriage observe Monday fast. Fasting on Mondays is also beneficial to girls for accomplishing the wish of getting a desired partner. Monday fast can be observed in three ways ; simple Monday fast, Som Pradosh Vrat, and Solah somvar vrat (Monday fast for sixteen weeks). Most devotees also observe fast during four or five Mondays of Shravan month. It is believed that worshiping Lord Shiva during Shravan month is very auspicious. And observing Monday fast and reciting Solah Somvar Vrat Katha during Shravan month can make Lord Shiva happy for the sure. As Shravan month is deeply dear to Mahadev.
🕉 Upvass or fasting on Mondays begins at sunrise and ends at sunset. On this day, food is only eaten after evening prayer. As lord Shiva is very kind and simple God, so many people keep fast as it suits them. Some don't eat anything through out the day, and drink just water. Some eat just fruit, milk and just dairy products. While some eat one meal with or without salt in the evening after making prayers to Lord Shiva. One should avoid grains and beans on this day. Some observe fast with neither eating nor drinking at all. So it's all up to you.
🕉 Monday fasting or observing fast during Monday is very simple, there isn't much colossal rituals attached to this vrat. But the person who does this vrat should be pure from his heart. On every fasting day one should wake up early in the morning and start his routine activities after worshiping Lord Shiva. For worshiping Lord Shiva you can install Shivlingam, idol or picture of Lord Shiva in pooja ghar at home. Remember, face of Shivalinga should be in North direction. The resolution of this fast should be taken infront of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati. With devotion offer Bel Patra, Roli, chawal, flowers, Dhoop, Dip, Diya, chandan, Dhatura, Milk, Curd, fruit & food to Lord Shiva. If nothing is available, simple water will do as Shiva sees the pious heart of his true devotee. Then, the Aarti should be performed and Prasadam distributed.
🕉 Remember, Red Kumkum or Sindur and Tulsi leaves are not offered to Lord Shiva. And after doing Shiva Pooja, read or hear Somvar Vrat Katha, as hearing Somvar Vrat Katha is important part of Monday fast. Chant Mantra 'OM NAMAH SHIVAY' throughout the day. And late in the evening after again worshiping Lord Shiva you can have a one time sweet meal without salt. Eating fruits like banana, apple, papaya is also good in Monday fast.
🕉 Maa Parvati deeply wanted to marry Lord Shiva, and thus she did solah somvar vrat with immense devotion to get Mahadev. Hence Some women fast for 16 Mondays in a row to please Shiva. Young girls observe this fast so that they can have a husband like Lord Shiva as Shiva is seen as the ideal husband and is very easy to please.
🕉 After the completion of Solah Somvar Vrat, on the day of Udhyapan, Brahmans and children should be given Kheer, Puri, sweets etc and donations as per the capacity of an individual. On sunset, worshipping of Lord Shiva in Pradosh Kal is considered the most favourable!
🕉 Monday fasting will be very fruitful if started from first Monday of Shukla Paksh of Shravan month (June-July). Four or five Monday fasting can be done in a go . And as per willingness the person can continue this fast till 16 weeks of Monday starting from Shukla Paksh ( waxing period of moon) of Shravan month. But simple Monday fast can also be started from first Monday of Shukla Paksha of Hindi Months - Chaitra, Baisakh, Kartik and Margsheersh.
🕉 it's not necessary to begin your fast only in the month of shravan. As Lord Shiva is very simple and innocent God, he is pleased even if you offer only love to him. He sees the Bhaav, he will answer your prayers if you start fasting with sincere heart on any random Monday!! Jai Bholenath!

छोटी सी मछली पानी के उल्टे बहाव में भी आगे निकल जाती है जबकि विशालकाय हाथी तक उस बहाव में बह जाता है क्योंकि मछली पानी की शरण में है। बिलकुल इसी तरह जो भक्त ईश्वर की शरण में रहते हैं , वे विपरीत परिस्थिति में भी संसार सागर से तर जाते हैं. !! ðŸ“¿ðŸ•‰ðŸ“¿ Namaste Beautiful Souls. It's time for Thursday Vibes. ðŸŒ€ðŸŒ€God is our ultimate shelter and he is sufficiently powerful to protect us in all circumstances. Sometimes you are in doubt, will He really be there to take good care of me, if I give up my plans and surrender to him? During the manifold legends, God has shown that He takes care of all those who surrender to him. How God protects his devotees against all the odds is best expressed in many stories. Prahlada, the supreme devotee of Shri Vishnu, was unaffected by the weapons the demons had used against him. Markandeya was saved from the clutches of death by Shiva. God takes care of His surrendered devotees is an irrevocable truth. Turn to the Lord and express your confidence in his care and protection. "I'm your instrument. You can use me as you wish. I have no agenda of my own. I am here to accept your desire as my life and soul, and give everything to serve You.” ~ Develop this vision, increase your faith. In good times and in bad, try to see Gods plan and arrangement behind everything. Our setbacks or disappointments are but part of Gods plan. These situations help to burn up some old karma or to bring us to the point of understanding that God is our ultimate shelter. So understand this and emotionally separate yourself from your problems. You are far greater than your problems. You should never let one dark cloud cover the entire sky. The sun is always shining on some part of your life. Everything that happens is a life lesson. Everyone you meet, everything you encounter, they are all part of the learning experience. Never forget to acknowledge the lesson, especially when things don’t go your way. It only means something better is out there waiting. Trust God!!! Love, Happiness & Gratitude !🐘🌙👁🐚🐍💀🕉🍃📿🌷🌀🔔🙏🏻

Preparation for Makaravilakku Festival # Sabarimala



Preparation for Makaravilakku Festival # Sabarimala

Mahakali is the presiding deity of Shri Mahakal. Mahakal is a precept and Mahakali is the power that manifests this potential in action.

Mahakali is the presiding deity of Shri Mahakal. Mahakal is a precept and Mahakali is the power that manifests this potential in action. The sun dwells millions of miles away from earth. Its rays are known to influence various stars, galaxies etc in interstellar space. If Mahakal is the sun, Mahakali is its rays. Mahakal’s existence can be experienced by us only via Mahakali. Hence we call her ‘mother’. Mahakal no doubt is our father but we can contact him only via Mother Mahakali. No doubt in era transformation Mahakal’s desire and inspiration exist yet the credit for fulfilling this task definitely goes to Mahakali. In order to transform an individual, society and the world that Great Energy which time and again laughs dancingly, dances for world annihilation is called Mahakali who harbors an attitude of world well being. In Puranas one finds tantalising divine sports of Mahakali. When demonic forces ruled the roost, sins augmented, vileness grew like weeds and the balance of world society got marred so as to spread lack, discontent and hell like agitation Mahakali incarnated and challenged vileness. In that battle demons were single handedly overpowered by her. That lack of peace which manifests to ultimately spring forth peace is called Super Peace! ðŸ™ðŸ»ðŸ’€ðŸŒ™ðŸ‘ðŸðŸšðŸŒ·ðŸ””🍃📿🌀🕉🙏🏻
