People have more faith towards Mahadev. Mahadev is called the God of Gods. This Mahadev is also known by his kodha. More devotion towards Mahadev is being seen among boys than girls. Mahashivaratri (Mahashivaratri), the great festival of Mahadev, is on 11 March. It is a festival dedicated to Lord Shiva. To get the blessings of Lord Shiva on this day, the Shiva devotees worship him with complete rituals. It is said that if we fast on the day of Mahashivaratri, all their wishes are fulfilled. Some people keep fast on this day. But some things should be taken special care in the worship of Lord Shiva. Worship of Shiva without some material is considered incomplete. The same things should not be offered to Lord Shiva on this day. Don’t forget these things and offer them.
- Akshat is considered very auspicious in worship material. But on Mahashivaratri day, keep in mind that Lord Shiva should not be offered in worship even after forgetting the broken letters. Broken rice is incomplete and impure so it is not offered to Shiva. Therefore, Akshat used in worship should be whole.
- We definitely use Tulsi in the enjoyment of God. But on the day of Mahashivaratri, do not forget to offer Tulsi to Shiva. Tulsi has been given special importance in Hinduism and is used in all kinds of worship and auspicious works, but it is forbidden to offer Tulsi to Lord Shiva. Lord Shiva should offer Bela Patra in worship.
- Do not use conch in Shiva worship on Mahashivratri. There is a legend behind this. Lord Shiva killed a demon named Shankhchud, who was a great devotee of Lord Vishnu. The conch is considered the symbol of the same demon, therefore the conch should not be used in the worship of Shiva.
- On Mahashivaratri, Lord Shiva should not offer kumkum. Kumkum is a symbol of good luck, while Lord Shiva is recluse, so do not place and offer kumkum in the worship material of Shiva. Also, turmeric should not be offered in Shivling.
- Some people anoint Shiva with coconut water in place of water but should not do so as coconut is considered a symbol of Goddess Lakshmi who is related to Lord Vishnu.
