Endless and awesome are the glories of lord shiva, who is always given the prime place in hinduism. hindu scriptures describe him as the supreme master who is the lord of entire creation. lord shiva is a timeless entity who has brought this universe into existence through his will. he is the final source in which everything culminates after destruction. the form of shiva conceived in hinduism is majestic and awe inspiring. he is the highly benevolent one always interested in the welfare of his devotees. so pray to him.
praying to god does not have to be in a specific way. worshiping god is a connection of the heart. it is from within. if you do hours of pooja without concentration or bhakti, it is a waste. the main motive of worshiping god is to remove worldly desires and become focused on one supreme and understand the truth. your heart should be pure, help the needy, show mercy to animals and to everyone around you. but if you sitting for worship and your heart contains malice, then your devotion is no good. remove all evil from heart and mind. sit infront of god, thank him for countless blessings. devotion and surrendering is the key. when you surrender completely to god, life gets easy.
there are no rules for worshipping shiva. shiva is very simple and kind god. offer him anything with love ; flowers, fruit or even leaf, he will happily accept it. if you do not have shivling at home, you can mentally worship shiva. that's shiva manasa puja, worshipping him in your mind, contemplating, either on his form or idol or photo. the rules, procedure have their value, but devotion and surrendering is the key. serve and love shiva like a mother, father, spouse or a friend.
it is preferable to have bath and perform the puja everyday at same time and place. preferably face east or north. if someday you cannot perform at the normal time, instead of skipping its better to perform anytime. you can do shiva abhishek with panchamrit or simple water will do. shiva will be pleased either way! ✨🌷👁🕉🔱🌀🌺💀🌙🐍⌛️🌼🐚🌲📿🔔🌿🌸🎨🔆🙏✨ love, light & peace ~ om namah shivaya ✨🌷👁🕉🔱🌀🌺💀🌙🐍⌛️🌼🐚🌲📿🔔🌿🌸🎨🔆🙏✨
