Significance and Importance of Shravan Maas

The month of Shravana is an auspicious month of the Vaidic calendar. It usually comes in the months of July and August. Sacred Rudra Puja (Rudrabhishek) is also performed in the month of Shravan, to facilitate our inward journey. “Earth is sprinkled with shower in the month of Shravan, when millions turn to Shiva; the ultimate Truth and beauty. Adoring the shiva Tattva in the month of Shravan washes away all sins and bestows abundance.”

- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

What is Rudra Puja?

Rudra Puja is an ancient practice followed in India from time immemorial. ‘Rudra’ means ‘Shiva - the Benevolent', 'the Destroyer of Evil'; 'Puja' means that which is born out of fullness. Rudrabhishek creates positive energy and removes negativity. This Puja is performed for inner peace and contentment. Nature rejoices wherever Rudrabishek is performed. Vaidic scriptures recommended Rudra Puja to get rid of the miseries, fulfillment of desires and for prosperity; astrologers also advice Rudra Puja emphatically to remove the malefic effects of planets.

Why do Rudra Pooja?

The world is a play of energy, both negative and positive. When we pray to Lord Shiva – the Lord of transformation - the negative energy in the form of disease, depression, and unhappiness gets transformed into peace, prosperity and joy. Then peace is bestowed on all the three levels - the body, mind and soul.

How is the Pooja Performed?

The Rudra Puja is performed on a crystal 'linga'. Vibrations of mantra-chanting are absorbed by the offerings (curd, milk, ghee, honey and water) which are made in the Puja. They are offered to Lord Shiva with reverence, love and gratitude. Trained Pundits and Veda students from the Veda Agama Pathashala (Vaidic School) perform this special Puja. The chanting of these mantras is highly meditative and bestows immense peace.
