Abhishekam in Varanasi

Abhishekam

Rudrabhishekam in Varanasi is an act of pouring water, milk, and flowers constantly on Shivlinga while Purohit is chanting the Rudram mantras. This ritual is done to be blessed with good health and wealth and remove negative energy. The Abhishekam performed in the temple premises of Sri Vishwanath has a special reverence because this temple is considered to be one of the 12 Jyotirlingas. The complete sight of the surroundings of the temple fills the heart with a sense of fulfillment and bliss. Since Kashi is considered to be a sacred city, people hire the best Pandit for Abhishekam in Varanasi and perform pooja to earn Punya. TirthKshetra Purohit provides the best Purohit services in Varanasi for all types of your needs.

As per Hindu mythology, Shiva is as entitled ‘The Destroyer’ as he is considered as the detrimental facet of Brahman. This is the only attribute or characteristic of Lord Shiva and there are many groups of people who consider Lord Shiva, associated deities or any of his different forms as the principal God and give different titles to him. However, worshipping Lord Shiva with the best pandit services in Varanasi is done in a broader sense or eclectic way whereas some groups or castes prefer their own specific style of puja. Furthermore, normal worshipping of Lord Shiva is very different and it can range from offering prayers to an anthropomorphic Murti (Such as the famous Tamil Nataraja statues from the ancient Chola Kingdom), a Lingam (one of Shiva’s main symbols), a deified landmark (such as the Ganges or Mount Kailash) or not worshipping a symbol at all (as in the case of the Lingayats).

The Puranas, a collection of texts explain the various achievements, skills, and figures of different Gods from Hindu Cosmology. This collection of texts is structured in a well-ordered way with a major focus on Devas representing the achievements and strengths of those Gods. The most significant attribute of Lord Shiva is Shiva Purana showcasing various mythological stories and origins of Puja implements and interdictions. An example might be the interdiction of offering Magnolia champaca and Ketaki flowers to Shiva, each given a justification grounded in an episode from mythology.

Shiva Abhishekam is the most sacred ritual performed to a Lingam which represents a creator of good (by destroying evil).

It is known that Shiva wears Snake God (Nageshwara) as an ornament around his neck. Furthermore, it is believed that the fragrance of Aloe attracts snake and thus, it is used a holy item in the process of worshipping Lord Shiva.

However, it is believed that Lord Vishnu is Alankara Priyar (Desirous of ornamentation). Hence, Vishnu Sthalas (places of worship of Lord Vishnu) have elaborately carved idols of Lord Vishnu with the alankaram (decoration ceremony) post the Abhishekam, being a very elaborate ritual.
