The first Sawan Somvar fast will be observed tomorrow. Worship Lord Shiva the right way to get desirable results. Also, know the Tithis of all the Mondays falling in the month of Sawan and important facts associated with them.

As per Hinduism, along with the month of Shravan, the time of Pradosh and Shivratri is also considered auspicious to worship Lord Shiva. According to the Hindu Panchang, the month of Shravan is also known as Sawan, during which the importance of revering Lord Shiva and observing fasts on Monday increases to a great extent. Devotees of Shiva who fasts on Sawan Somvar obtain auspicious results. After fasting for the whole day, natives break the fast after performing the Puja. The rites and rituals associated with Sawan Vrat are similar to the other fasts kept on Monday. During this year, the first Monday/Somvar of Sawan will fall on 22 July, 2019. 

Sawan Somvar Vrat Will Give Desirable Results 

The Hindu Panchang states that Shravan is the fifth month of the year which falls during the month of July or August according to the English Calendar. The month holds immense importance because the entire month is devoted to Lord Shiva. Thus, it becomes very dear to the Mahadev. Beliefs state that when Lord Vishnu goes for a long sleep to Kshirsagar on Devshayni Ekadashi, Lord Shiva takes the responsibility of the entire Universe on his shoulders. Apart from this, it is also said that if a devotee performs Lord Shankar's reverence along with Lord Parvati in the month of Sawan, then he/she receives all kinds of desirable results by the grace of the Lord. Along with this, the person also attains liberation from his/her problems.

Benefits of Observing the Sawan Somvar Fast 

Experts in the field of astrology believe that if there are problems in your marriage, your financial condition is weak or there are health problems, then fasting on all the Mondays of Sawan Month helps you appease Lord Shiva and eliminate all these obstacles. In the Vedas, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati are acknowledged as men and nature respectively. Therefore, it is believed that nature spreads its unique shadows on the Earth. This sight pleases the Lord immediately and he decides to fulfil all the desires and prayers of his devotees during this time. 

Important Things to Keep in Mind During Sawan Somvar 

  • Hindu Mythology states that Lord Shani or Saturn is the beloved disciple of Mahadev. Thus by observing this fast, you can not only appease Bholenath and Goddess Parvati, but also Shani Dev. 
  • Since the Moon takes abode in Shiv ji’s matted hair and Monday is also known to be governed by the planet Moon, the Sawan Somvar fast helps the devotees to gain blessings not only from Shiva but also from Lord Moon. if there are any malefic effects of the Moon present in your Kundli, the same will get eliminated with the observation of this fast. 
  • If a Grahan or Sarp Dosha gets formed in a natives’s Kundli, then the successful observation of Sawan Somvar fasts pleases Lord Shiva and eliminates all such Doshas.
  • Apart from this, it is extremely beneficial to worship Lord Shiva in the month of Sawan in order to get rid of various kinds of Doshas present in one’s Kundli and also to suppress all the sins of the individual’s life.
  • It has been observed that if the festival of Nag Panchami falls on Sawan Somvar, its importance increases and it is considered an auspicious combination. By worshiping serpents on this day, Lord Shiva blesses the devotees.

Purpose of Sawan Somvar Fast

During the occasion of Sawan Somvar, Lord Shiva remains in a delightful mood after witnessing the peculiar yet beautiful harmony of nature. If we take a look at the appearance of Mahadev, then it can be seen the he adorns the poisonous Vasuki Nag around his neck and the Moon (Lord Chandra) resides on his head. Apart from this, the river Ganga or Goddess Ganga emerges out of his matted hair. His vahan or mount is a bull, who is also known as Nandi. Meanwhile, his consort and better half, Goddess Parvati rides on a lion. Talking about his sons, Ganesh and Kartikeya, their mount is a mouse and peacock respectively. If you pay attention here, then it can be derived that all creatures share an inimical bond with each other, but all of them live together in harmony in the Lord’s residence, Kailash Parvat. Hence, it is believed that Lord Shankar conveys his word to us through them and says that we need to maintain the right balance prevalent in nature. Thus, when nature spreads its unique shade during the month of Shravan, an aesthetic incarnation of it comes to the forefront. Similarly, every human being should also make efforts to maintain the right balance in nature. By doing this, Lord Shankar gets pleased and showers his blessings upon the natives.

Sawan Somvar Fast and Puja Rituals

As we have mentioned above, the fasting rituals of Sawan Somvar are very much similar to the usual fasts kept on Monday, but its significance is much greater than the other vrats or fasts. The rites and ceremonies to be performed during this fast are jotted down below. 

  • Wake up early in the morning before sunrise and purify yourself after taking a bath and wearing new clothes.
  • After this, perform the Abhishek of Lord Shiva with milk, curd, Ganga jal, sugarcane juice, mustard oil etc.
  • Apply white sandalwood on Mahadev and offer him datura, cannabis, Bel leaves etc.
  • Light a pure ghee or oil lamp in front of him.
  • After this, read or listen to Savan Somvar vrat katha and chant the Shiv Chalisa while performing the Aarti. 
  • Offer Prasad to him.
  • On the day when the fast is being observed, the Lord must be worshipped during the morning and evening hours.
  • Break the fast only after worshiping Lord Shiva in the evening and keep in mind that only one meal should be consumed in the entire day. 

Sawan Somvar in Mythology 

Quite dear to Lord Shiva, the month of Shravan has many legends associated with it. In such an instance, it has been mentioned that Goddess Parvati observed a difficult fast continuously for a month, so as to gain the honor of being Lord Shiva’s wife. Bholenath was pleased with her devotion and dedication, appeared in front of her and gave her the boon of being his consort. This explains the reason why girls and women are advised to fast and worship Shiva on this day, as it ends all marital problems prevailing in life.

According to another myth, on this very day, Lord Shiva decided to visit his in-laws on the Earth. Once he arrived there, he was welcomed in a very grand manner after performing a Jalabahishek. Thus, it is believed that natives who worship Bholenath while observing the fast of Sawan Somvar attain the grace of Lord Shiva. Quite a few beliefs state that the Lord himself arrives on the Earth during the month of Shravan to bless his devotees. Taking all these trivia into account, it is very important to keep fasts on Mondays during this month.

We wish to shed some light on Sawan Somvar with this article. May you get the blessings from Mahadev during the month of Shravan and get rid of all your problems.

On this occasion, devotees, also called as kanwarias, fill their Kanwar, a small vessel, with water from the banks of Narmada and use it to perform the ceremony of Jalabhishek on Shivling in Shiva’s temple. In this month, the Kanwarias can be seen hailing the Lord while walking down the road with their kanwars. Similarly, in the Sharda Mandir Madan Mahal, the tradition of offering flags on the day of Sawan Somvar is followed.

Effects of Sun in One’s Kundli 

Very often it is said that the Sun is the soul of this universe. Thus, while investigating one’s birth chart, an astrologer primarily takes the Sun’s position into account. It remains exalted in the east direction and also reigns over the fifth zodiac sign which is, Leo. For the natives of this sign, the Sun is a homely planet. In the zodiac sign Aries, it stays supremely exalted. It can be said that after reaching a favourable spot, it becomes extremely beneficial. On the contrary, Libra is its debilitated sign and the Sun does not procure positive results when it stays posited in this zodiac sign. 

Also, the distance it maintains with other planets states what impacts will take place in the lives of the natives. Additionally, astrologers also note down Sun’s position in a particular zodiac sign while analyzing a particular Kundali. It is important to keep track of its friendly, inimical, exalted or debilitated signs while making any predictions. 

The usage of Surya Yantra is advised to curb the malefic effects of Sun and also to strengthen its position in one’s Kundali. By duly worshipping the Sun Yantra while observing the necessary rites and rituals, one can immediately witness positive outcomes. Due to its beneficial impact, one also attains stature and becomes influential and specially earns success in the government sector.

From an astrological point of view, Lunar Eclipse is an important event, and people seem to act curiously regarding its influence and effects on the world. According to astronomy, when the Earth comes in between the Sun and the Moon, it casts a shadow on the Moon, hereby creating an eclipse. On the other hand, mythology says that when Rahu and Ketu swallow the Moon, the phenomenon is said to be a Lunar Eclipse. However, an interesting story related to Samudra Manthan or Churning of the Ocean also exists in the books. Lunar Eclipse, like Solar Eclipse, occurs every year and its numbers vary accordingly. Talking about the year 2019, there were two occurrences of the Lunar Eclipse visible, in which the first Full Lunar Eclipse occurred on 21 January, while the second Partial Lunar Eclipse will take place during midnight on 16-17 July. As the first occurrence on 21 January wasn’t visible to Indians, hence, this event holds high importance, as it will be visible in India, and the period of Sutak will be effective.

The Sutak period of the Lunar Eclipse taking place on 16 July, 2019 will begin at 3:54 PM. Thus, one should complete all the rituals before the given time period. 

Importance Of Guru Purnima 

A teacher of Guru is given the supreme importance in each and every religion. The same is also considered true for Hinduism, which is why the mentor or Guru is offered special prayers on this day and it has great eminence too. As per the religious traditions and legends, the creator of Mahabharata, the great sage Ved Vyas was born on this particular day. Thus, the festival is also known as Vyas Puja in many parts of the country. There exists a tradition of revering Sage Vyas on this day and acknowledging its significance, people worship their Guru, Ishta Devata and their respective adored Gods during this festival.

As per the Hindu Panchang, in order to worship one’s Guru or Ishta Deva and Shree Vyas ji, it is necessary for the Purnima Tithi to keep occurring until the three Muhurats after sunrise. Other than this, if the Purnima Tithi has less than three Muhurats, then Guru Poornima celebrations should be observed a day before. 

Rites and Rituals to Follow During Guru Poornima 

It is extremely important to conduct the Guru Poornima Puja according to an auspicious Muhurat. In the same vein, it is also mandatory to observe the pertinent rites and rituals so as to gain optimum blessings after its successful conduction. Let us move further to have a look at the liturgies which should be followed to appease the Lord or Guru. 

  • On the day of Guru Purnima, one should wake up early and take a bath. 
  • Wear new or clean clothes after taking a shower and pay a visit to your Guru. If it is not possible, then place the idol or picture of your Ishta Deva on a clean place. 
  • After this, place your Guru or his picture on a furnished podium and offer a floral garland to him along with fruits and other items. 
  • Later on, present him with donations according to your beliefs and seek blessings from him while worshipping him with a devoted heart and mind. 
  • On this day, it is also necessary to seek the blessings of those senior folks who grant you the valuable lessons of life. Your parents, siblings, friends or any special person can be a part of the list, which describes the people worthy of taking blessings from. 
  • Lastly, you should specifically ask for the Guru Mantra from your Guru. At the same time, reverence should also be paid to the Ishta Deva, while giving him the status of a Guru.

Mythological Significance Of Guru Purnima 

According to the sacred mythological texts of Hinduism, Guru is given a far more elevated status than the Holy Trinity i.e. Lord Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. This is so because it is only the Guru who adorns the responsibility of bringing the light of knowledge to his disciple’s life and navigates him/her to set foot on the right path of life. In ancient times, students residing in Gurukul would pray to their teacher Guru with complete devotion. This reverence shown by the pupils becomes the teacher’s Guru Dakshina (remuneration).

The custom of performing circumambulation around the Govardhan Parvat also has quite a relevance during this festival. Apart from this, devotees also follow the ritual of taking baths in the holy rivers on the day of Guru Poornima. Joyous celebrations which include many rites and rituals are also hosted by the temples. Fairs and eateries also see in many places. Teachers or mentors are honored in vivid manners by their students in schools and other educational institutions.

Overall, it can be said that this tradition which celebrates the involvement of a Guru and his disciple has been prevalent in the Indian culture and Hinduism for quite a long period of time. This festival is marked to celebrate or to express this respect of the disciple towards the Guru.

We wish you a prosperous Guru Purnima! May you keep attaining the blessings of your Guru to lead a happy and flourishing life.
