Devotees throng in large numbers to offer water to Lord Bholenath in the month of Sawan or Shravan. It is not that only the devotees of Baba Bholenath come to Deoghar to offer water. Baba’s devotees in every nook and corner of the country Water offering on Shivling We do. In Bihar and Jharkhand as well as in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal, devotees offer water to Baba while performing Kanwar Yatra (Kanwar Yatra 2023). But, the question is why does Kanwar Yatra take place only in the month of Sawan?
Why Kanwar Yatra happens only in the month of Shravan
Come, today we tell you that in the month of Shravan only Kanwar Yatra Why does it happen? It is said in the Puranas that when the gods and demons together churned the ocean, many divine things came out of it. Divine things were divided into gods and demons. Halahal poison also came out during the churning of the ocean. No one was ready to accept it.
Lord Bholenath drank Halahal poison
Lord Bhole Shankar came forward and he drank Halahal poison. As soon as he consumed it, Mother Parvati put her hand on Shiva’s neck. Halahal could not come down from Shiva’s throat. Bholenath’s throat turned blue due to the effect of poison. Although Bholenath did not allow the poison to go down his throat, Baba Bholenath started feeling pain due to the effect of the poison.
That’s why we do Jalabhishek of Shiva
To free Lord Shankar from the effect of poison, water was offered on his body. Due to this, the effect of poison started reducing gradually. Please tell that the churning of the ocean took place in the month of Shravan. During this, Lord Shankar was freed from the effect of poison by offering water. This is the reason why the tradition of offering water on Shivling started in the month of Shravan.
Kanwar Yatris keep saying Bam Bam Bhole
In the month of Shravan, every Shiva devotee wishes to participate in the Kanwar Yatra. Taking Kanwar on his shoulder, he reaches the pagodas while making bomb-bomb noises. He offers water to Bholeshankar who gets pleased very easily in the Shivalaya and asks him for his vow. It is said that Baba Bholenath fulfills everyone’s wishes.
Baba Baidyanath fulfills every wish of the devotees
Devotees take the water of the Ganges and reach Baba’s door to get rid of the pain caused by poison to their Nath Bholenath and to have faith, devotion and dedication towards their deity. Offer water to them. This pleases Baba and fulfills every wish of his devotees.
