Shiva-Linga Abhishekam is an auspicious ritual during the Month of Kartika. Abhishekam will be performed by our Priests, with utmost devotion. Your name will be a part of this daily Abhishekam. Sign-up Today at Sivakameswari.org or talk to the priest at the temple
Abhishekam is the ritualistic Bathing ceremony of the Gods with sacred substances, namely: Milk (Water element; a sense of taste); Curd (Earth element; a sense of touch); Ghee (Fire element; sense of sight);
Honey (Ether element; sense of hearing); Sugar (Air element; sense of smell)
These five when mixed become ‘Panchamritam’ or the five nectars and are the five elements within us and five elements outside of us. Panchamrita Abhishekam helps in harmonizing our body with the world, vibrating energy in tune with the orchestra of life, ocean of life!
Performing Shiva Linga Abhishekam and Puja is worshipping Lord Shiva in his Rudra form, a representation of the Universe. He is the remover of all sins and afflictions and helps in the attainment of peace, prosperity, and happiness.
Bathing of the Shiva Lingam symbolizes the removal of impurities (false self or ego) from our mind, the ego which is the source of all the hardships in life. “Stilling the modifications of the mind” (Chitta Vritti Nirodhana). This purification ritual also symbolizes the elimination of our material interests that distract us from our spiritual path.
Sponsoring such Lord Shiva Puja and Abhishekam helps us achieve success, harmony, peace, and abundance in all the five main areas of life namely: health & well-being; work/career; finances/wealth; friends/family; relaxation.
