Shivling Puja Rules at Home: Lord Shiva, the God of Gods, is considered one of the Panchdevs in Sanatan Dharma. Like his name, Bhole Baba is very innocent and his method of worship is also very simple. Bhole Baba gets pleased only with a lota of pure water and belpatra offered by his devotee with a true heart.
But Shivji also has a ferocious and fierce form, which comes to the fore when he is angry. That’s why some rules should be followed while worshiping Shivling, the symbol of Mahadev. If a Shivling is installed at your home, do not commit any mistake in worship. Worshiping Shivling according to the rules and regulations is fruitful.
If there is Shivling at home then keep these things in mind
- Worship according to law- If there is a Shivling in your place of worship, then keep in mind that worship should be done regularly and with complete rituals. If for some reason you are not able to worship Shivling, then do not install Shivling at home. Because Bholenath gets angry when Shivling is not worshipped.
- Do not offer these things in Shivling- Ketaki flowers should not be offered in the worship of Lord Shiva. Along with this, Tulsi Dal or Tulsi leaves should never be offered on Shivling. Offering turmeric and kumkum on Shivling is also prohibited.
- Size of Shivling at home- There are huge Shivlings in temples and pagodas. But a very big size Shivling should not be installed at home. For regular worship at home the size of Shivling should not be bigger than your thumb. Because Shivling is sensitive. That’s why it is auspicious to keep small size Shivling in the worship place.
Worship Shivling at home with simple method
For the worship of Shivling daily at home, first do Aachaman and then anoint the Shivling with Ganges water or pure water. Now apply sandalwood paste on Shivling. Offer beltpatra, flowers and bhog etc. on the Shivling. Panchakshar mantra ‘Namah Shivay’ should be chanted 108 times. But you can also chant this mantra 12 times at home. After this perform aarti of Lord Shiva.
