Maha Shivratri Puja: Just one day left in Mahashivratri, see the full list of worship materials here

Maha Shivratri Puja Samagri List: It is very important that before the Mahashivratri Puja, all the material of the Puja is purchased so that there is no need to run away later.

20th February, 2020

In Mahashivaratri, 21 February is on Friday. There are only a few hours left in it. On the day of Mahashivaratri, devotees offer prayers to Lord Shiva with full legal practice. According to religious beliefs, on this day all the wishes of the devotees who worship Lord Shiva with true mind are fulfilled and the blessings of Lord Bhole-Shankar remain on them. On this day, some devotees of Bhole Shankar do anointing of Shivalinga in Kashi and Ujjain and some local temples and also organize some special Rudrabhishekas. In such a situation, if the entire pooja material is not already in one place, then the main time of worship can be interrupted. In such a situation, it is very important that before the worship of Mahashivratri, all the material of the puja should be purchased so that there is no need to run away later. See the complete list of Puja material on Mahashivratri here.

Ganga water has special significance in the worship of Lord Shiva. According to religious beliefs, the mother Ganga has descended from the feet of Lord Vishnu and on the earth from the body of Lord Shiva. This is the reason why Ganga ji is considered the most sacred than other rivers. It is believed that anointing Lord Shiva with Ganga water brings peace to the mind.

Bhole Baba is also particularly fond of cannabis. It is mentioned in religious texts that at the time of the churning of the sea, when Lord Shiva had worshiped Halahal Vrisha, the gods gave him many herbs for his treatment. Of which cannabis was also prominent. Since then cannabis is particularly dear to Lord Shiva.
There is a tradition of offering Dhatura in worship to Lord Shiva. Dhatura is generally considered poisonous. According to religious beliefs, one of the herbs given to Lord Shiva to eliminate the effects of Hallahal was also Dhatura.
