New Delhi: According to belief, there is no better day than Maha Shivaratri 2021 to please Mahadev, the God of Gods. On this day, if Lord Shiva is worshipped with the right mind and right means i.e. by law and legislation, then the grace of Bholenath remains on the devotee at all times. Shivji likes bhaang, dhatura and belpatra quite a lot, so on this day, there is a way to worship Shivji with these things.
On this day, if Lord Shiva is happy then he gives you a boon as per his wish, but if Lord Shiva is not worshipped on this day properly, then he gets angry with his place of grace. The Puja Vidhi in Shivpuran provides detailed information about how to please Lord Shiva and what can make Shivji angry with you.
Don't make these 7 mistakes during Shiva worship...
- On Mahashivaratri, people are asked to stay away from food made of rice, lentils and wheat. It is also said that those who keep a fast to please Shiva, should eat fruits, milk, tea, coffee etc.
- It is believed that if you insult any of your relatives, spouse or elderly person, then Shivji may be angry with you. In such a situation, if an elderly person is insulted by you, then apologize for your actions in time.
- If you want to please Shiva, then take special care of this matter. Do not wear black clothes while fasting or worshipping Shiva.
- Prasad offered on Shivling should not be accepted. It is believed that by doing this you enter bad luck and there is a possibility of serious diseases in the family.
- According to the scriptures, it is believed that one should never offer Tulsi on Shivalinga. Tulsi is considered pure to be offered to Lord Vishnu, but it is forbidden to offer it to Shivalinga.
- If you have used turmeric while pleasing Shiva, then it can be harmful to you. According to the scriptures, it is believed that Shivalinga is related to male essence, due to this, turmeric should not be used on Shivalinga.
