Sawan Begins - Avoid These 9 Things That Make Shiva Angry

Sawan is beginning today and will end on August 18, which is the day of Raksha Bandhan. Known as the month of Shiva, we all are aware of the benefits of the holy rituals performed in this month. But, there are certain things that if you do may bring the wrath of Shiva. So, let’s know the things to be avoided…

Sawan is the holiest month of the year for Hindus, especially for those who want to make their love life better.



As Sawan occurs during the period of Chaturmas, Lord Shiva takes the charge while Vishnu is asleep. It is the time when Shiva can fulfill all your desires; for he holds the power of the trinity. Hence, making him upset may also be quite problematic. The required prohibitions are given below, check them out.

9 Things To Avoid In Sawan


  1. Don’t fight with your spouse. But, if it happens, worship Shiva-Parvati to get the things pacified.
  2. Avoid Tamasik things. As Shiva also holds the responsibilities of Vishnu in this duration, avoiding things like alcohol, meat, etc. will be good. It increases the control over desires and emotions.
  3. Avoid milk consumption. Month of Sawan is not considered good for the consumption of milk because it may disturb the Vata Dosha in body. That is why Shivalinga is showered with milk in this duration.
  4. Avoid having brinjal. Yes, brinjal is considered impure in this season. That is why some people avoid it during Dwadashi Tithis, Chaturdashi Tithis, and Kartik month as well.
  5. Don’t miss the early morning bathing ritual of Shivalinga. It is believed to be making the individual rid of the sins made in past. So, wake up early every day, give Shiva a holy bath, and worship him.
  6. Don’t hurt any Shiva devotee. It is the month of Shiva; service to His devotees equals the service to Shiva. Try to help them and don’t hurt them at all.
  7. Avoid green leafy vegetables. It is considered unhealthy to consume green leafy vegetables during Sawan.
  8. Feed bulls, don’t hurt them. If you see a stray bull in this month, feed them rather than pushing them away because they are considered as Nandi, the carrier of Shiva.
  9. Don’t hurt anyone with your words and respect elders.

Further, we thought that you would like to know the dates of Sawan Somwars (the holy Mondays of Sawan) to keep fast and receive the blessings of Shiva:

  • July 25, 2016
  • August 1, 2016

About Ved Vyasa


Parashara had left on his journey to spread knowledge and awareness immediately after the birth of Vyasa. By the time he returned, Vyasa was six years old and had been told of his great father and his knowledge & wisdom in those six years.

Vyasa was greatly intrigued by his father. He requested his father to take him along on his travels. Upon hearing this, Parashara said that Vyasa can travel with him as his disciple and not as his son; to which Vyasa agreed.

As Vyasa grew under the guidance of Parashara, his ability to grasp knowledge became tremendous. By the time he was sixteen, he grew into a man of immense knowledge and intelligence.

The Vedas remained in the form of the oral tradition, until the Gangetic plain were struck by famine that lasted for over 14 years. It is said that there was not a single drop of rain all those years. During this time, people forgot to recite the Vedas because they were busy gathering food wherever they could find it. When the rains returned, Vyasa noticed the loss of Vedas that had occurred in the civilisation, and thus, he decided to write them down.

The four Vedas that were classified by Vyasa are considered to be one of the greatest documents ever created by humanity. 

Guru Purnima in Buddhism


Buddhist history tells us that on this day, the Sangha (the community of the enlightened ones) was formed. Buddha gave his first sermon at this time at Sarnath. The Sangha then grew to sixty in number and Buddha then sent all in different directions to travel alone and teach the world the Dharma. The 60 monks of the Sangha were known as Arahants. 

We hope that this little piece of information will help you in making your Guru Purnima an enriching experience this year. If you have any feedback, please write it down in the comments.

Happy Guru Purnima!
