Sawan Somvar 2021: Today is the second Monday of Sawan, know which Shivling is worshipped


Sawan Somvar 2021: According to Shiva Purana, the face should always be kept towards the north while worshiping Shivling because by standing or sitting in the east direction, the front part of Shiva is obstructed which is not auspicious.

Sawan Somvar 2021: Today is the second Monday of Sawan. Due to the placement of Kritika Nakshatra, its importance has increased even more. Devotees are offering prayers today to please Lord Shiva and get his blessings. Along with this, the worship of Mother Parvati will also be very fruitful. On this auspicious occasion, let us know how many types of Shivling are there and what is the law of worshiping them? Mahadev is the only god whose worship is considered more fruitful in the form of a linga than in the form of an embodiment. This is the reason why Lord Shiva resides in the form of Linga in the temples.


The first type of Shivling is called Uttam Shivling,
to please Bholenath, devotees worship his linga form. Shivling has been described in three types in Shiva Purana. They are called the best, middle and inferior. The first type of Shivling is called Uttam Shivling. The best Shivling is called that under which the altar is built and it is four fingers higher than the altar. It is considered to be the best, that is, the best Shivling. The second type of Shivling is called medium and the third type of Shivling is called the middle class Shivling. The Shivling which is less than four fingers from the altar is considered medium. At the same time, whichever is less than this is considered to be of inferior category.


According to Shiva Purana, one should always face north while worshiping Shivling, because by standing or sitting in the east direction, worshiping Shivling in front of Shiva. The part is obstructed which is not auspicious. It is said that worshiping Goddess Parvati while sitting or standing towards the north is said to insult Goddess Parvati as it falls to the left of Shiva where Goddess Parvati is situated. Therefore, sitting in the south direction, facing the front, that is, facing north, one should worship the Shivling. By doing this, the devotee gets the blessings of Mother Parvati and Bholenath.
