Shravan Maas 2020 | Lord Shiva | Sawan 2020 | Shivology


Shivology The Shravan Maas or the month of our revered and loved Mahadev is the 5th month in the Hindu Calendar. It is named after the ruling Nakshatra during those specified dates. This entire month is dedicated to Lord Shiva. According to Vedic astrology when the Sun enters the zodiac Leo, it sets the beginning of this auspicious month. As per the lunar calendar it sets in on a full moon day or Poornima. Along with being a holy month, this is a month of various Hindu festivals Raksha Bandhan, Mangala Gauri Vrat, Naag Panchami, Haryali Teej and Rishi Panchami.

This festival filled holy month is auspicious for offering prayers to Lord Shiva along with performing various vedic rituals to purify the mind body and senses as Shiva tattvas fill the cosmos. Devotees observe fast for Mondays starting from the first Monday of Shravan Maas until sunset and Akhand diya is lit throughout this time.

The Sawan month is celebrated 15 days apart between North and South India. In South India the onset of Sawan is 15 days after the onset in North India.

Shravan Maas Katha

Shivology Shravan signifies the time when Lord Shiva drank venom that arose from “Samudra Manthan” as Devas and Asuras battled for ambrosia. As Goddess Parvati held his throat to prevent the poison from being swallowed, His throat turned blue giving him the name of Neelkanth.

It is also considered the favorite month of Lord Shiva as it is during this period that Goddess Parvati observed rigorous fasting to please Lord Shiva to marry him. Many devotees visit Haridwar and Gangotri and other religious places during this month symbolizing Kavad Yatra. They bring Gangajal in a Kavad and offer it Lord Shiva and so these devotees are called Kavadiya.
