In the Hindu calendar, the month of Sawan holds significant importance and is considered a time of devotion, spirituality, and celebration.
As the monsoon rains pour down, transforming the landscape, devotees embark on a profound journey of faith, immersing themselves in rituals, fasting, and offering prayers to Lord Shiva.
Sawan, also known as Shravan, falls during the fifth month of the Hindu lunar calendar and holds immense religious significance.
It is dedicated to Lord Shiva, the supreme deity associated with creation, destruction, and transformation.
Devotees believe that prayers and penance performed during this time are particularly auspicious and bring blessings, purification, and spiritual growth.
Fasting and Devotion:
Devotees willingly abstain from certain foods or undertake specific practices as a mark of devotion and to seek the divine grace of Lord Shiva.
Many devotees fast on Mondays, as these days are believed to be particularly sacred to Lord Shiva. Fasting is often accompanied by prayers, recitation of hymns, and visits to Shiva temples.
